Variety Sunshine Coach

In September 2016, a brand new Variety Sunshine Coach was presented to the children and staff at Trinity Fields School in Ystrad Mynach by the Hodge Foundation.

Trinity Fields School and Resource Centre provides education and specialist facilities for pupils aged 3 to 19-years, who have a wide range of learning difficulties. The new Sunshine Coach will allow children to attend education visits linked to their term-time curriculum, transport to and from swimming and sporting sessions and, crucially, to transport children from the satellite classes to main school buildings for specialist hydrotherapy, sensory rooms and rebound therapy area.

Headteacher of the school, Ian Elliott said:

“As Trinity Fields School has grown in size our current Sunshine Coach has been in even greater demand, whilst at the same time getting older by the day. Having a brand new coach will mean that we can get more of our pupils out and about, allowing them to learn more readily from a wider range of real life experiences. On behalf of our pupils, governors, parents and staff we are so very grateful to the Hodge Foundation for sponsoring our new Variety Sunshine Coach. Your sponsorship has made our application a reality. Thank you so much!”
