This week we were visited by McDonalds staff from the Whitehaven branch. The visit was focused around our SkillsBlox project which aims to educate our pupils about the world of work and develop skills linked to being at work such as teamwork, confidence, communication etc. McDonalds showed Lakes 12 , Mountains 8 and Mountains 9 the uniforms they wear, some of the equipment they use and also ran a fun session making Big Macs using some of the real ingredients including the use of cardboard burgers! A great time was had by all and we are hoping to follow up with some visits to Whitehaven McDonalds to find out more about what they do at work.
