BELDON Education Support Centre has a new set of wheels thanks to Variety WA.

Principal Michele Mason, board chair and Joondalup MLA Emily Hamilton and members of the school community attended the launch of the 30th annual Variety WA Bash where the charity donated a new bus to the centre.

Ms Hamilton thanked Variety WA for its generosity and support and outlined what it meant for the school community.

Ms Mason said a significant proportion of the school’s budget was spent on the costs of bus hire.

“Having our own bus will give us flexibility in taking students to community events and camp when we want rather than being committed to the school bus scheduled times,” she said.

“Currently we have a student in a wheelchair and we have been unable to transport her to weekly hydrotherapy and other excursions.

“The Variety bus has wheelchair access which will allow all our students to have the same access to community and special events as others.”
