Honor Goodsite's Big Build Competition | 2018

Balfour Beatty With the help of: St. Gerardine Primary School Chosen building: St. Gerardine’s Church With the help of their teaching assistants, the 44 children from two P3 classes decided to reproduce the beautiful St. Gerardine’s Church using cardboard boxes, red crisp packets and ‘lots of tape’. They cleverly layered red crisp packets on the roof to look like tiles.
