GO GEORGE hands out educational material to schools

GO GEORGE hands out educational material to schools

Kids learn about public transport while they play

As part of their ongoing programme to develop educational material for use in schools, GO GEORGE has now introduced two exciting additions to the collection.

The 120-piece GO GEORGE puzzle aimed at Grades 1, 2 and 3 and a colourful activity book for Grade 4s have been designed for use alongside the school curriculum on public transport.

Both these items are currently being handed out to schools in those areas where the bus service is already active, and the puzzle to the municipal libraries as well, for use in their educational programmes.

A GO GEORGE board game was the first item designed for use in schools and since its introduction in November 2017, has proved to be a hit with the youngsters who learn while they play.

Kinders leer speel-speel oor openbare vervoer

As deel van GO GEORGE se deurlopende program om opvoedkundige materiaal vir gebruik in skole te ontwikkel, is twee opwindende toevoegings tot die versameling nou bekendgestel. 

Die GO GEORGE-legkaart met 120 stukke, gemik op graad 1, 2 en 3 en ’n kleurvolle aktiwiteitsboekie vir graad 4's is ontwerp om in samehang met die skoolleerplan oor openbare vervoer gebruik te word.

Albei die items word tans uitgedeel aan skole in die gebiede waar die busdiens reeds aktief is, en die legkaart ook aan die munisipale biblioteke vir gebruik in hul opvoedkundige programme.

’n GO GEORGE-bordspeletjie was die eerste item wat vir gebruik in skole ontwerp is en is sedert die bekendstelling daarvan in November 2017 duidelik ’n groot treffer by die jongspan wat al spelende leer.

Die jongspan by Laerskool Kretzenshoop was baie opgewonde oor die vooruitsig van nuwe GO GEORGE-legkaarte om te pak, asook die feit dat ’n soektog na hul gunsteling-gelukbringer Georgie deel van die pret is.

Daclon Aries, skoolhoof, en me Mora Titus, departementshoof van die grondslagfase, by, van links, Jane Koester, Elginay Saulse, Tiffany Van Wyk, Chavondre Klaassen en Courtney January, almal in graad 2.
