Loss of minibus re­stricts ac­tiv­i­ties

The Oban Times - - News -

STU­DENT rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Tober­mory High School told Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil­lors at Oban, Lorn and the Isles Area Com­mit­tee meet­ing last Wed­nes­day how much the loss of their school minibus has af­fected school ac­tiv­i­ties.

Fund­ing cuts saw the school lose the use of the mini bus at the end of April.

Zac Finch (S5) said: ‘ We have to hire coaches to go on trips which in­creases the price of the trips. Af­ter school clubs are af­fected too – the mini bus meant kids could get home af­ter­wards for free.’

The coun­cil­lors present said they were not aware that the minibus had been taken away and that they would look into the mat­ter.
