Every year we welcome local schools to educate students on quarry safety and provide info on possible career opportunities available in their area. The visit is especially important in the run up to the summer break as it highlights the dangers of entering a quarry unsupervised, with the aim of deterring children over the summer months ensuring their safety.
Kilwaughter Chemical Co. Ltd are committed to broadening the horizons of younger generations by hosting educational visits to the site for students as extensions to their classroom learning. Career advice is especially important for secondary school students as they continue to make choices that will shape their future career.
On 25th June the company had the pleasure of welcoming 18 Chemistry students from Larne Grammar School.
The visit consisted of a presentation on the company, a product overview, facts and activities on the theme of biodiversity of the quarry and conservation, product research demos, a hands-on product demo and a tour of the manufacturing facilities. It suits all kinds of disciplines, especially students of Science or Business Studies modules.
Lisa Blair, Marketing & Product Development Manager comments:
“ Its important to educate the local children on quarry safety to ensure they stay safe over their summer break. The educational visits also provide an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the company’s activities and types of available job roles. These students are the future of our local region so it’s important that they know how the company contribute to the community in which they live”.
Students take away a high visibility vest as a memento of their day, which they can wear in the dark evenings to keep them safe on the roads.
