Oakwood Primary Academy receives donation of newly published books from housebuilder


David Wilson Homes is encouraging the next generation of builders to learn all about construction with a donation of its “We Can Build” children’s book to Oakwood Primary Academy in Eastbourne. The housebuilder, who is building new homes at its Meadowburne Place development on St Martins Road, recently donated 33 copies of the brand-new publication to the school.

The pupils in Year 3 received copies of David Wilson Homes’ “We Can Build” books, which encourage young people to learn about the built environment. The book includes information about sustainability in housebuilding and the professions available in the industry, delivered through a range of diverse character profiles including Sofia the Site Manager and Ade the Architect.

Natalie Perry, Sales and Marketing Director for David Wilson Homes, commented: “We want to encourage STEM learning by teaching the children about the roles within the construction industry, in particular the value of housebuilding. The book is a wonderful way to bring our messages to life, as storytelling helps to engage us in different ways and encourage our imagination. The book is an easy introduction to housebuilding, and we hope the copies of We Can Build will continue to inspire our next generation of builders!”

Ryan Laker, Head of School at Oakwood Primary School, added, “It is reassuring to see David Wilson Homes invest in the future generations in Eastbourne through this book donation. So many of our children love to build and make things, so this is such a fun way for the children to think about the development on their doorsteps, and what different people do in the construction industry. This may inspire some of our future architects and builders.”

“We Can Build” was designed by recent graduates from David Wilson Homes’ ASPIRE graduate programme. A number of books were purchased by the housebuilder, which were donated to schools and organisations across the South, with all funds raised to be donated to the Prince’s Trust.

David Wilson Homes is currently selling just one four-bedroom home at its Meadowburne Place development, where prices start from £479,000.
