Central Coast

An Amazing Day

17 Dec 2013

Busways was happy to provide Henry Kendall High School’s Support Unit with a free low-floor wheel chair accessible bus, to transport students with special needs to their excursion at Amazement in Yarramalong.

“Many of these students with special needs have physical disabilities, so transport to events is sometimes an issue” said Support Unit Teacher, Bronwyn Bennett. “We are very fortunate throughout the year to have the use of special mini buses provided by the Central Coast Wheeling and Able Association. Those buses are available to transport small numbers of students to weekly sport and community outings; however, at the end of the year it is important to be able to have all of our students on the one excursion.”

Once again, Busways very generously donated a large bus with a lowering floor that enabled students with limited mobility to board safely. Busways transported us in comfort to the beautiful Yarramalong valley.”

The farm and fun park allowed the students to make their way through several living mazes and use plenty of energy exploring on tricycles built for two. Student, Ethan Russell said, “It was fun to go on the big bus and ride the bikes there.”

Students also saw a variety of farm animals from free roaming ducks, geese and chickens to llamas and baby emus. Students had the added experience of patting and cuddling the bunnies and guinea pigs.

The day was complete with a sausage sizzle, fresh summer fruit and a slice of delicious, home-made Christmas cake. David Garlick from Henry Kendall High said, “It was a good day out.” Thanks to Busways, we really did have an AMAZING day.
