GEORGIE SURPRISES KIDS AT LEGACY CENTRE

GEORGIE SURPRISES KIDS AT LEGACY CENTRE

With October being both national transport month and the month of mental health awareness, a visit from the GO GEORGE mascot, Georgie, to the happy youngsters with different kinds of challenges at Legacy Centre in Denneoord, was inevitable.

Georgie heard about Legacy Centre’s October awareness campaign, “Special needs children are different, NOT less!”, and their lollipop project to raise funds to create awareness about these children. When he found out, on top of that, that the Môreson children who receive home schooling would be visiting Legacy Centre last Friday, there was no stopping him.

The kids were hugely excited when Georgie came around the corner, and happily joined him in dancing and singing “Die wiele van die bus draai om en om”. Georgie shared some interesting information about the buses with the children, and was very pleased to hear that quite a few of them were regular GO GEORGE passengers.

 

CAPTIONS:

A small group of children at the Môreson Child and Youth Care Centre do better with home schooling than mainstream or special needs education. They were also paying a visit to Legacy Centre on Friday when Georgie dropped by. They were in awe of the friendly, colourful mascot and had lively conversations with him.

 

GEORGIE VERRAS KINDERS BY LEGACY-SENTRUM

Met Oktober wat as nasionale vervoermaand sowel as die maand vir bewusmaking van geestesgesondheid verklaar is, was dit onafwendbaar dat GO GEORGE se gelukbringer, Georgie, 'n draai sou maak by die jongspan met verskillende tipes uitdagings by die Legacy-sentrum in Denneoord.

Georgie het gehoor van Legacy-sentrum se bewusmakingsveldtog, "Kinders met spesiale behoeftes is anders, NIE minderwaardig nie!", en hul suigstokkieprojek om geld in te samel om bewusmaking van hierdie kinders te skep. Toe hy boonop uitvind dat die Môreson-kinders wat tuisskoling ontvang verlede Vrydag by Legacy sou gaan kuier, was daar geen keer aan hom nie.

Die kinders was hoogs opgewonde toe Georgie om die hoek verskyn en het vrolik saam met hom gedans en “Die wiele van die bus draai om en om” gesing. Georgie het interessante inligting omtrent die busse met die kinders gedeel en was baie bly om te hoor dat 'n hele paar van hulle gereelde GO GEORGE-passasiers is.

 

 

'n Klein groepie kinders by die Môreson-kinder- en jeugsorgsentrum vaar beter met tuisskoling as met hoofstroom- of spesiale behoeftes-onderrig. Hulle het ook Vrydag by die maats by Legacy-sentrum gekuier toe Georgie daar inloer. Hulle was baie beïndruk met die kleurvolle, vrolike gelukbringer en het tog te lekker met hom gesels.
