A Jeepney is an iconic Philippine mode of public transport. Did you see one in the opening scene of An Officer And A Gentleman?The children of Pato and Pawikan classes experienced at close range what it is like to travel in the back of a long-wheel based modified G.I. jeep. They pass them every day on their way to school, observe people jumping off and on. I think the reality made them realise what a challenge this would be on a busy Manila roadway!The Year 3 children from Pawikan supported the nursery children from Pato with getting on and off safely through the narrow back door.Sometimes everyday things create great excitement when we get up close and experience them for ourselves.
