Churchtown Primary School has taken delivery of a new mini bus thanks to the fundraising efforts of its Parent Teacher Association and the generosity of sponsorship from Southport based e.den Play.

With latest specifications and safety features, the 17 seat vehicle has already broadened the horizons of the school’s children with sports team fixtures and educational visits that were previously difficult or unaffordable to attend.

“We have needed a mini bus for a very long time” said Mrs Belinda Taylor, co-Head of Churchtown Primary. “It adds a whole new flexibility to our curriculum activities for all ages and means we can safely reach off site activities within school time that we would have previously had to decline.”

Mrs Kylie Moor, Chair of the PTA added, “We are delighted and grateful that school’s families have been so supportive of recent fundraising events that we have been able to commit to a vehicle lease, and thank e.den for their amazing sponsorship support.”

“We have worked with Churchtown Primary on a number of projects in recent years,” said David Colville, e.den Managing Director, “and are pleased to lend our support to this exciting addition to the school.”

A triumphant first outing of the mini bus brought home proud winners of a Year 5 & 6 girls’ football tournament – something everyone at Churchtown School hopes is a good omen!
