Wessex Primary School transformed by volunteers from mobile firm 3

A dedicated team of volunteers from mobile phone firm 3 have ensured that pupils will be fully on board when they return to Wessex Primary School in September.

Team 3 took 17 members to the school in St Adrians Close in Maidenhead on Thursday to transform the garden, brighten up the playground and unveil the new classroom - a converted 1960's bus.

The vintage double decker was gutted to make room for a new, fully-interactive teaching space, with a sensory room upstairs to benefit the school's hearing impaired students.

The volunteers also planted a sensory garden with lavender and herbs, created a border of fruit plants and painted playground furniture, among countless other good deeds.

Chellie Tomkins of 3 said: "The headmaster gives so much to the children and to the school and it was a great opportunity to give something back.

"We were gob-smacked with the effort of the volunteers. They really knuckled down, even with the rain."
