COMMUNITY BUS

In September  2008, the centre purchased their community bus.

The bus enables the centre to provide safe     transportation of children who are attending our after school program. The bus collects children from the three National Schools within the area,  and brings them to our premises in Moneybeg, Royal Oak Road.

The bus also provides collection for our Community Playschool, for parents who are unable to walk to the playschool because of  health related problems.

With the bus we can offer our family day trips, which were not in a position to do before because of the expense of bus hire.

We also offer a transport for elderly within the community to attend St. Lazarians Day Care Centre.  Our bus is fully wheelchair assessable.
