Children enjoy practical experience of public transport

At the bus stop, the GO GEORGE communication staff shared interesting facts about the bus service with the youngsters, also explaining how the textured paving at the bus stops help blind passengers navigate their way onto the bus. Handing out their bus tickets is Karen Lamprecht, while Tyron Jeyi tagged the learners with a special GO GEORGE lanyard around the neck. On the far left is their principal, Danita Botha.
Complementing their school curriculum on transport, the learners from the Le Bonhe’ur cottage school for children with special needs had a whale of a time on a GO GEORGE bus trip to the Garden Route Mall. Situated in Stander Street, it was easy to walk the learners from the school to the nearest bus stop on Route 24 that runs from the CBD, via Loerie Park to the Mall.
Le Bonhe’r principal, Danita Botha (left), says the children thoroughly enjoyed their bus trip, and that such an informative, yet safe outing is ideal for her learners.
Back at the school after a most enjoyable bus trip, each learner received a GO GEORGE drawstring bag from the beloved mascot, Georgie. Happily posing with Georgie are, from the left, Lara Wolffs, Nikola Lutske, Mikayla Roux, Jacques le Roux, Geo Fourie and, behind him, Morné Gouws.
