19th October 2010, what a exciting day. We prepared to take 85 kiddies from K.I.D.S. Educare and Bay Primary School to the Hillstar Junior traffic centre for some road safety training in a bid to keep our kiddies safe on the road and to equip them with some knowledge that could safe their lives.
A BIG thank you to Golden Arrow for the transportation, Fruit & Veg Tokai for the fruit and Gatti’s Steenberg for the ice cream. These companies assisted in making this a memorable day for kiddies. The excitement reached a climax as the bus arrived and the kiddies realized that this is it. Some had their first ride in a bus ever!!!!
They received training from the friendly officers at Hillstar in a playful way and were empowered to be safe on the roads.
A tired, but very happy group of kiddies said goodbye and enjoyed the trip back to Fish Hoek with a lovely view of the ocean from the bus.
For some, this was just too much and they fell asleep in the bus.
A CD is available with photos of the outing.
