THE original MFC Foundation Boro Bus was brought into service to help combat health and education difficulties in areas of deprivation.
It quickly developed into a learning facility that was used throughout the region, often supplementing work done within classrooms.
Requisitioned as a pop-up vaccination centre during the Covid-19 pandemic, it was taken to all areas of Teesside and NHS staff would administer the necessary jabs.
The bus has wide screen TV and stadium seats on board which allows students to take part in lessons whilst on the bus, with sessions delivered aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding of health issues as well as boosting confidence and self-esteem of children involved.
It will in time be phased out, replaced with a new bus which is different in shape and size, but very much with the same purpose.
