Sunrise summer programme begins

An amphibious bus tour kicked off the Sunrise Adult Training Centre’s summer programme in splashy style on Monday. 

“The extended summer programme is mainly educational and recreational activities,” said Clifton Gayle, acting deputy director of the centre. 

“There were 42 people on the bus, from people in their teens to people in their 50s. As well as the Marineland amphibious bus, the Ritz-Carlton will be hosting them for a tour and lunch, CUC will be hosting them at Elements for a daytime dance and food. We will also be going to Rum Point and Pedro Castle,” he said. 


Programme runs  

The programme runs until 4 August, after which there will be a short break before the regular programme restarts on 29 August. 

The Sunrise Adult Training Centre provides training, support and services for the empowerment, employment and independence of adults with disabilities through a team of dedicated and caring staff as well as advocating the rights and promoting public acceptance of adults with disabilities as contributing members of society. 

The programme runs until 4 August.
