We Can Build: Milton Keynes homebuilder donates educational books to school

Pupils of Brooklands Farm Primary School with their We Can Build books

Brooklands Farm Primary School in Milton Keynes has received 65 educational books written by Graduates on Barratt Homes’ ASPIRE Programme.

The book, titled ‘We Can Build’, takes readers on the journey of building a house through the various professions in the housebuilding industry and was illustrated by a young artist who has been supported by The Prince’s Trust charity.

It introduces young learners to the basic building blocks of the built environment and sustainability, and it aims to inspire the next generation of Architects, Engineers and Site Managers.

In addition, 100% of the profits of the sale of the books are going to The Prince’s Trust; a charity that helps connect young people with mentors, career opportunities and provides pathways into inspiring futures.

Jenny Hover, Assistant Headteacher at Brooklands Farm Primary School, said: “We were really grateful to receive the donation of ‘We Can Build’ books from Barratt Homes.

“The book will teach our Key Stage One children about the process of building a new home and will perhaps inspire our pupils to consider a career in the construction industry.”

The school, which is close to the homebuilder’s Brooklands development on Fen Street, was delighted to receive the donation.

Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “We are really proud of our ASPIRE Graduates for the amazing book they have put together.

“The book covers all elements of construction including architecture, engineering, surveying, site management, construction and sales. We hope that the book might inspire some of the pupils of Brooklands Farm Primary School to become the next generation in the industry.”
