Exciting News: Our New Minibus Has Arrived!
We at Tettenhall Wood School are thrilled to share some fantastic news with our beloved community! After much anticipation and collective effort, our school has proudly received a new ‘lite’ minibus. This addition to our school is not just a vehicle; it’s a symbol of what we can achieve together and a gateway to new experiences for our students.
The journey to this momentous achievement began with a vision by our dedicated Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA). Understanding the need for a vehicle that could be driven on a standard driving license, thereby enabling more staff to take pupils out into the community, the PTFA embarked on an ambitious fundraising campaign.
Through tireless efforts, the PTFA, under the leadership of Julie Callendar (Chair) and Donna Stevens (Treasurer), overcame various challenges to make this dream a reality. Their commitment to enhancing our students’ experiences is truly inspiring.
The acquisition of this minibus was made possible thanks to generous grants and donations from The Clothworkers Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, other charitable entities, a significant private donation, smaller contributions from friends of the school, and the Waitrose Community Fund. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our donors and supporters.
This minibus is more than just a mode of transport; it’s a vehicle that opens doors to new learning opportunities and adventures for our students. It symbolizes our commitment to providing the best for our students and enhancing their access to the wider community.
We look forward to the many trips and experiences that await our students, and we are excited to see how this minibus will enrich their learning journey.
