NEERABUP students donned hard hats and high-vis vests for a behind the scenes tour of the new Banksia Grove Village four weeks before its opening.
About 50 Year 2 students took part in the ‘Bob the Builder’ excursion to see how shops are constructed.
Neerabup Primary School Principal David Hall said he hoped the experience would inspire students in the classroom.
‘A lot of our students are big on building and construction at the moment so this tour blew their minds,’ he said.
‘When kids experience something like this you really see their language skills develop and they are more likely to vocalise or write about exciting things in their world.’
Banksia Grove Village will include the Coles supermarket, 20 specialty retail outlets, two stand-alone sites and a Coles Express service station.
The Village will open at 9am on December 3.
