Exciting New School Bus!
13 March, 2019
Students and staff at Mater Dei are excited for the first ride in our new school bus. The bus was delivered by the wonderful team at Clinton’s Toyota who have worked with staff to ensure the bus met all the requirements unique to Mater Dei students.
The 22 seater bus has been modified to seat 16 including 2 wheelchair spaces, which has not previously been available in one bus. One class currently has 2 students in wheelchairs, so previously the class would need to split up between two smaller buses. The brand new bus allows more classes to travel together as one group and ensures our high levels of student supervision and safety are maintained when travelling off site.
Thanks to the generous support of the NSW State Member for Camden Mr Chris Patterson and former State Member for Wollondilly Mr Jai Rowell combined to donate via the NSW State Government Grants $80,000 towards this project. At our 2018 Foundation Dinner, supporters pledged a ‘seat on the bus’ raising over $100,000 which was a fantastic result and allowed us to purchase our new bus.
The arrival of the bus is perfect timing to say thank you to the two outgoing State Members who have both been strong advocates for Mater Dei throughout their time in office. They were both recognised as well as our other wonderful supporters that contributed to this project at our Principal’s Assembly last Friday afternoon (8 March).
