Children enjoy practical experience of public transport
Published: Tuesday, 12 June 2018
The little ones were elated at the opportunity of going on a bus trip and had many questions
that could be answered by the GO GEORGE communication champions and other staff members who accompanied the children.
Expanding their knowledge and experience of public transport, the Grade 1 learners from George South Primary School had a whale of a time on a GO GEORGE bus trip from the
city centre to Blanco and back last week. The 155 youngsters looked forward to this outing with great anticipation. Teacher Amanda Rademeyer who has made the arrangements, says it was a pleasure working with the GO GEORGE team whose liaison with the school was most helpful, accurate and timeous, as well as friendly and caring during the five trips that had to be made to accommodate one class at a time.
Anyone wanting to organise a group bus trip on a scheduled route, is welcome to contact GO GEORGE by phoning the Call Centre on 0800 044 044, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Marcell Geldenhuys the bus trip was part of the excitement of his seventh birthday which he celebrated on the same day. Bus driver Johannes Ngcaca gladly vacated his seat at the end of the trip to give the birthday boy an opportunity to feel that huge steering wheel under his hands.
Mctayrrah Pypers enjoyed every minute of the bus ride. Asked for a comment, she thought for a moment and said: “I think it will be very good if we could stop at Panarotti’s now…”
