The children sent in drawings to the competition which was run by building firm Ogilvie Construction. The company is building 36 flats and four semi-detached new homes for Hillcrest Housing Association. All of the drawings have been made into collages to be displayed on the hoardings at the site.

The company also presented head teacher Paula Cheghall with the collages for display in the school.

“We’ve worked closely with the school throughout the project to develop educational opportunities around the construction programme.”
