Oldway primary school children get site safety lesson from Renaissance Retirement

Good communication and team work was the message from Renaissance Retirement’s site manager Kevin James, when he hosted a site safety lesson with a local school in Paignton.

Local boy Kevin was only too pleased to show children from Oldway Primary School around the new retirement development on the former library site next to Victoria Park on Courtland Road.

Renaissance Retirement, who are building luxury apartments less than half a mile from the school said they were delighted to help out.

Kevin said: “The children were genuinely interested in why we are building retirement apartments, how they are being built and what was here before. I was even asked how much they’d cost! It was lovey to see their interest and enthusiasm in construction.”

Art teacher from Oldway Primary School, Claire Mitchell, arranged the visit as part of the schools’ partnership with retirement builder Renaissance Retirement.

Claire said: “The children really enjoyed the tour – and the site safety advice from Kevin. They now just want to come back when it’s finished.”

“We have a great relationship with the school and were only too happy to offer a site safety lesson. We were happy to give all the children a glossy brochure illustrating the development,” said Nick Watkins, Development Director of Renaissance Retirement.

Renaissance Retirement is continuing to support the school at a number of fundraising events moving forward, with some exciting projects in the local area also on the horizon.

The 38 one, two and three bed apartments will be finished in October with a grand opening planned for November.
