Learners from Paarl Boys’ Primary cycle in a ‘bus’

Twenty-three learners from Paarl Boys’ Primary school made their way from the Brug Street sports grounds parking area to their school in Devine Street on Friday (March 13) morning forming part of the school’s very first “cycling bus”.

According to Carike Dewey, a spokesperson for the school, the aim behind the initiative is to expose their learners to the joy of cycling to school.

“We want them to develop an awareness of the role we all need to play to protect the environment, and to experience the fun of cycling and the associated health benefits that go with it,” Dewey added.

The learners were divided into groups referred to as “cycle buses” and were arranged in such a way as to accommodate learners from different residential areas. They were supervised by at least two adults. Some of the boys who could not make it to the starting point were able to join the bus at various “bus stops” along the route.

“Bus stops are being identified as locations where there is ample parking (for parents that need to drop off their kids) and safe space in which to re-organise the bus,” Dewey continued.

This was only the beginning of the cycling bus and learners look forward to playing their role in protecting the environment.
