William Morris and Westmorland link up

We were delighted to welcome Westmorland Mechanical Testing & Research, Ltd. to William Morris last week.  They are a company based in Banbury which performs testing on a variety of industrial materials. We started the day with an assembly during which the children were able to learn more about Westmorland from Jess and Gareth (engineers).  They spoke to the children about the different things they tested and gave the children an opportunity to ask some questions.

Later in the day Niall Dodds the Managing Director of Westmoreland came to school with engineer Andy Eaton and presented the school with an AED machine for which we are extremely grateful.  These machines have saved lives up and down the country, we hope it will never be needed at William Morris but are glad to have one just in case!  As part of the presentation, Drew Kamphuis from First for Safety Oxfordshire delivered training in the use of the AED to some of the children in KS2.

Westmorland’s generosity doesn’t end there however, they also donated to the school hundreds of pounds worth of science and DT equipment for which we are extremely grateful. We hope to continue our link up with Westmorland and send some of the children to visit there in the new year.  William Morris and Westmorland link up
