School staff have praised Saltire Roofing & Building’s Managing Director for helping to inspire local youngsters during a recent event.
Steven McIntosh was invited to take part in “World of Work Week” at Castlebrae High School in Edinburgh.
Steven told pupils the story of his journey since leaving school.
He explained to the S3 children how he started out learning his trade as a roofer, working hard to begin his own business, which has grown into the successful multi-trades company he runs today.
The Thank You card from Castlebrae High School read:
“Thank you so much for your input with our S3’s last week for World of Work Week. It was great for our pupils to hear your story and they got a lot of information from your session. We are really keen to share and develop their knowledge and it’s only possible with support like yours. We really appreciate you giving up your time.”
Saltire Roofing & Building Managing Director Steven McIntosh said:
“I was very happy to go along to Castlebrae High School to deliver a talk to the pupils and I wish to thank the school for inviting me. If I managed to inspire at least one pupil to work hard to achieve their goals then it’s been a worthwhile experience. I strongly believe in supporting our local communities and as a company we try to do as much as we can to help kids get the best start in life.”
