Aspect Central Coast School is set to receive a new mini bus to bolster its services to the region’s autistic community.
Aspect is an autism-specific school, catering to 135 students on the autism spectrum, aged between 4 and 17, at seven different campus locations across the Central Coast.
“Each week our students require transport to a variety of community access programs in the region,” said Deputy Principal, Amanda Yates, “including to a new work education program for our senior students that allows them to gain work experience in a range of jobs and roles supported by the community.
“Unfortunately, we only have two mini buses at our disposal, and the new program requires additional transport, potentially threatening our senior student’s access to it,” she said.
On April 5, the Apex Foundation donated a nine seater mini bus to the school, valued at $32,000.
