We’re on the road to somewhere

STUDENTS and teachers at Nowra Anglican College have a new set of wheels.

The school community raised $118,000 to purchase a 24-seat Mitsubishi minibus.

They hadn’t had it for long before it was put to use – its first trip was to the beach with a load of students doing surfing for sport.

NAC business manager Leisa Ebdon said the school needed a bus to transport students to events, excursions and sporting activities.

“The school has been here for 13 years and we have always had to hire a bus

to attend events – that bus hire adds another expense.”

She said the fund-raising effort over the past year had been a lift for the school.

The Parents and Friends, students, the Veolia Mulwaree Trust and the Bomaderry Anglican Church were all involved in fund-raising.

“We cooked a lot of sausages over the past year.”
