MAs at Victoria PS
MAs go back to school to boost their skills
Modern Apprentices brushed up on their painting and decorating skills by going back to school recently.
Painting and Decorating Modern Apprentices and their lecturers were delighted to step in to help out Victoria Primary School which is a close neighbour of the Forth Valley College Falkirk Campus when their corridors and classrooms needed a spruce up.
Ian Morrison, Head of FVC’s Department of Construction, said: “We were delighted to help out Victoria Primary School by sending our Painting and Decorating MAs in to brighten up their surroundings. We have worked with them before and it is great to strengthen these links once again.”
Graeme Williamson, FVC Painting and Decorating Lecturer, said: “This was a great opportunity for our MAs to get some practical real life experience during their training way with us here at the college. They certainly enjoyed the experience and I have no doubt they will benefit from the time they spent back at school.”
Julie McKenna, Head Teacher at Victoria Primary School, said: “The team from Forth Valley have been really fantastic, very accommodating and helpful to all staff. Nothing has been a bother and they have all truly gone ‘over and above.’
“The painting that has been completed is really good too, with areas so much fresher now for our pupils. I did worry that there would be a mess to clean up in each room, but this was not the case. The team cleaned as they went and left a finished room in a very good state.
“We are delighted with the work carried out as well as all the communication from lecturer Graeme Williamson which has been really helpful.”
