Joe Cullinane, Leader of North Ayrshire Council, visited North Ayrshire Council’s Autism project, the Astra Base in Ardrossan Academy on Tuesday the 6th of December.

The councillor spent the morning getting to know some of the school’s pupils and speaking with Head
Teacher, Miss Chalmers and her staff at the base. Mr Cullinane was given a tour of the new
provision which includes two classrooms and a branch-out room that includes a safe space
for pupils to use when required.

Mr Cullinane was also updated on the North Ayrshire Council’s Autism strategy by Philip Gosnay, Senior Manager for the Council.
