The day the bus arrived...
The bus arrived in June 2019, during the third term of the school academic year. When the students heard that the new bus had arrived, they were extremely excited and couldn't wait for the bell to go off so they could rush out of their classrooms to see the new school bus. When the bell for school break went off, a great number of students went running out of their classrooms to see how what the new bus looked like. There was a lot of excitement and cheering that followed.
The current Year 11 students were the first class to use the new bus for an educational field trip to Sondu Miriu Water Power Station. Having all the students in one bus was a very entertaining, novel and exciting experience compared to the previous experiences on educational trips outside the school.
We think the bus will be a great asset to the students of the school in the future not only for class trips but also when students go for various inter-school competitions and events. It can be a great way to boost student morale and unity before such events. And it certainly going to be far more economical.
