Our Bws Dysgu - (The Learning Bus) was officially opened by Karen Evans, Head of School Improvement and Inclusion for Denbighshire County Council yesterday.
Governors, Parents, local Head teachers, local businessmen, members of the Press and pupils attended the ceremony, where the cutting of a red ribbon officially opened our new facility.
Visitors were treated to a fantastic rendition of The Wheels on the Bus by the school choir and were given a tour of the bus by the Head Boy and Girl and members of the school council.
Representatives of the school newspaper interviewed Karen Evans, and asked her what she thought of Bws Dysgu, "I think it's a bright and interesting learning environment, I would have loved to have had a place like this to work in when I was in school."
Mr Cannon said he’d looked at various options to increase space for one to one and group work in the school and approached Rhyl travel firm Alpine who donated the big yellow bus for free at Easter. Since then our school has invested its own funds in renovating the vehicle.
Prestatyn builder Nathan Roberts, who has two children Jessica and Joseph in school, managed the refurbishment project. "I have loved working on the project, it's not everyday we are asked to convert a bus! It has been a challenge, but i'm very pleased with the end result, and the children tell me they really love working on it."
Mr Cannon added: “What we’ve got is a new, exciting and stimulating learning environment with a difference. It’s fantastic. Thank you to everyone who has worked on the project, it is already having a great impact on our school.”
