Construction has seen some big changes this year.

Last year we focused on bricklaying and concreting.

This year we are focussing on painting and decorating as a part of a new Btec course.

The outside area has been transformed into a bespoke painting and decorating section, with two towers made of plaster board, which have been erected by the students.

We also built a graffiti wall so watch this space for some graphic design work.

The students have been presented with their own painting and decorating tools which they can take home once they have finished the course. The reason for this is so that they can take ownership of the tools and look after them as their own.

The first designs to go on the wall is a complex diamond shape which they had to measure, level and plumb. I am so impressed with the initial results the standard is excellent.

Chorlton Paints very kindly donated lots of great coloured paints for us to use. Thank you!

I am looking forward to some fantastic results this year.
