On the very last day of school, Gilo said goodbye to their loyal bus driver Johan Liebaert in style. He entered service on May 2, 1991 and was the bus driver for the children of Oosterzele, Balegem and Scheldewindeke for no less than 31 years. Every school day he was the man who took the children from here to there in a safe way.
Johan will not soon forget his last day. On this sunny day the children from the different schools had all made a drawing and of course there was dancing and singing for Johan. The red carpet was rolled out and Johan was received as if he were king. A nice gesture.
He was then served a tasty breakfast and a last ride was made in his beautifully decorated bus to the Balegem and Scheldewindeke departments.
He can now enjoy a well-deserved retirement.
Johan will certainly be missed after all he meant to Gilo.
