New school learning bus already broken into
PUBLISHED: 15:00 13 June 2012
A DOUBLE-DECKER bus has been installed on the grounds of a Weston primary school after it won funding from an improvement group.
But the bus has already been broken into twice despite only being unveiled two weeks ago.
Ashcombe Primary School’s innovation team secured the cash for the bus from Weston Excellence and then set about getting it decked out.
The bottom floor has become a chill-out zone complete with a selection of books, while the top deck will be converted into a learning zone.
Teaching assistant Tina Langston said: “We don’t know who or what but twice now we’ve had people come in and they have been smoking upstairs.
“It is such a shame that the children have put all this time and effort in and it is not being treated with the respect it deserves.
“The children have really enjoyed organising the bus and most of the time I have been stood behind them while they were on the phone. They have learned so much, doing research and realising how much things cost.”
