Local car dealers SLM Toyota have donated money to help Glyne Gap School create wheelchair access for its Wild Garden project.

SLM gave a generous £1,950 to the project through Toyota’s Fund For A Better Tomorrow scheme.

Glyne Gap is a school for pupils aged 2-19 with severe and profound learning disabilities. Many pupils have other additional needs including physical, medical, sensory and autistic spectrum condition.

Glyne Gap School head Kirsty Prawanna said: “This very generous donation will be used to create a wheel chair accessible pathway into our Wild Garden.

“The Wild Garden is a great space in our school that is utilized as an outdoor classroom to cover such topics as ‘Natural Habitat’ and ‘Mini Beasts’ as well as being used as a space for circle-time, storytelling, music and theatre sessions.”

Commenting on the ethos at Glyne Gap School, Kirsty said: “Our school is a friendly place where all are respected and where children’s learning and wellbeing are the basis of all we do.

“We want our pupils to lead happy and fulfilled lives now and in the future and we believe learning is the key to unlocking such lives.

“We are committed to a total communication philosophy where pupil’s individual communication needs are put at the forefront of their learning with emphasis specifically placed on developing independence, personal autonomy, functional life skills and friendship.

“Our pupils are taught in a happy, purposeful and caring environment by our committed and highly skilled staff to enable all pupils to fulfil their potential and make outstanding progress.

“We are always happy to discuss any aspect of our work so please take the opportunity to call or visit us.”
