The perfect drive as Greenfields are presented with a brand new minibus
Greenfields Academy were delighted to receive a brand-new Variety Sunshine minibus sponsored by Variety Golf, a charity event organised by the children’s charity.
We dedicate our curriculum to preparing pupils for life beyond education, underpinned by the development of life skills through a variety of enrichment activities. Such experiences often require us to travel further afield, thus showcasing the importance of having efficient transport available on a regular basis.
Presented at Woburn Golf Club, following a charity round across the infamous course, Greenfields can now enjoy using the new minibus to transport pupils to important activities such as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, outdoor learning sessions, museum trips and work experience opportunities.
A wealth of famous faces from sport, business and entertainment came together for a day of thrilling golf action. Participants included Ex Man Utd and England footballer Steve Coppell, Ex Arsenal and Northern Ireland footballer Pat Jennings, Ex Liverpool and Republic of Ireland footballer Steve Staunton, Ex England Cricketer Mark Ramprakash, and Top Gear presenter Tiff Needell.
Chris Armond, Executive Headteacher at Greenfields Academy said:
“It’s fantastic to have the funding towards a minibus as educational visits are a vital part of helping to deliver an engaging, aspirational curriculum. Pupils will also be able to partake in a greater number of sporting events, including fixtures against other schools.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Variety Golf for their generous support.”
