Great excitement as St Anthony’s gets new school bus

After many years of dedicated fundraising activities and events, the students in St Anthony’s Special School, Castlebar, have at last taken delivery of their new specially adapted wheelchair accessible school bus.

The bus will be used to transport all students including those in wheelchairs to and from the many varied activities they are involved in during the school day, such as visiting the local Museum in Turlough for workshops, going swimming in Breaffy Leisure Centre, going bowling in Mayo Leisure Centre, visiting local areas of interest as part of educational studies including local towns, factories, recycling centres; amenities such as the Greenway and Lough Lannagh and also allowing students to participate in inter-schools sports events such as attending GAA workshops in Elverys Stadium, basketball and football competitions in Sligo, Galway and Ballina and other sports events around the province.
