Go George takes a bow for tiny tots

An outing to the Botanical Gardens by GO GEORGE bus is becoming an annual event for the little tots at Sonneblomland Crèche in Protea Park. A total of 61 youngsters, aged between two and six years and accompanied by a group of vigilant teachers, hopped on the bus last week for their quarterly outing.

This particular outing, the school's third bus ride, exposed them to public transport as well as the wonders of nature, and the children came back late afternoon, a lot wiser than they had started out the day. Amongst many other things, they learned how universally accessible the buses have been designed, to allow even the "shorties" to board on their own.

Caption:

… but GO GEORGE has a plan. First, the bus knelt down to lower its entire body, then a ramp was deployed to make the bus accessible to the "shorties".

 Go George  maak ’n kniebuiging vir kleuters

’n Uitstappie na die Botaniese Tuin met ’n GO GEORGE-bus is besig om ’n jaarlikse instelling vir die kleinspan van die Sonneblomland-kleuterskool in Proteapark te word. Altesaam 61 kleuters tussen twee en ses jaar oud, vergesel deur ’n groep op-en-wakker onderwysers, het verlede week op die bus gehop vir hul kwartaallikse uitstappie.

Hierdie spesifieke uitstappie, die skool se derde busrit, het die kinders blootgestel aan openbare vervoer sowel as die wonders van die natuur en hulle het laatmiddag teruggekeer skool toe, baie wyser as wat hulle die dag begin het. Die spannetjie het onder andere geleer hoe universeel toeganklik die busse ontwerp is, sodat selfs die "buksies" op hul eie kan opklim.

Onderskrifte

... maar GO GEORGE het ’n plan. Eers het die bus "gekniel" om sy hele lyf te laat sak, en toe ’n loopvlak wat die bus toeganklik vir buksies ook maak, uitgestoot.
