A SOLIHULL nursey and infant school has invited Jaguar Land Rover staff round for a slice of pizza to thank them for their volunteering efforts.
JLR staff spent three days at Damson Wood Nursery and Infant School Academy, sprucing up the garden and playground and installing a clay oven for the children to learn to cook in.
Now the school has invited the staff back to share some pizza cooked in their new outdoor oven.
Ms Emily Hughes, head of Damson Wood Nursery and Infant School Academy, said: “We are thrilled with the work the volunteers from JLR have done to improve the school grounds at Damson Wood for our pupils.
“In particular, the clay oven will enhance our rich curriculum by enabling the children to learn in the outdoor environment and will
support their learning about food and cooking.
“JLR have helped to provide a resource for our pupils to use for years to come.
“We are hoping to invite the JLR staff back to enjoy some pizza cooked in our new oven.”
Victoria Morris, head of advanced manufacturing engineering at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “It was a brilliant three days and we got an awful lot from it. Working closely with the local community, improving the school environment for the children both visually and educationally and working together as team whilst having a lot of fun doing so.”
JLR has since given Damson Wood various car parts for a ‘Pipe Tree’ and are planning to join forced with the school’s head of art to design and install a wind sculpture in the Sensory Garden.
