I was very concerned today when my 6yr old grandaughter came home from a school trip and said there was not enough seats on the coach so they made her sit on the floor, this is a greek school she goes to. Does anyone know if this is acceptable here. Well she wont be going on any other school trips.
Not sure but can understand why you are annoyed....my 2 have been on lots of school trips (they go to greek school as well) but they have always had a seat on the bus.
I would talk to the teacher and ask why your child was told to sit on the floor, surely they shouild of provided another bus if there wasn't enough seats.
No it is not acceptable. It is also strictly against the existing rules governing transport for school trips.
My wife works in a Greek secondary school and she tells me that someone at the school should be carrying the responsibility for all checks on transport and safety. The school should receive and check copies of all documents from the bus company in advance of the trip, including vehicle safety certificates (including the maximum number of passenger seats) and driver licences.
There is, however, still no official requirement for seat belts as yet.
Someone has seriously messed up on this one and you should let the school head know.
