1. First Avenue Institute and UJ TECHNOLAB has arranged transport for underprivileged teenagers participating in AfrikaBot 2017 on Sunday 22 October 2017. AfrikaBot takes place at Zwartkops International Raceway which is near Centurion.

2. Please download and take a look at the TRANSPORT LIST, ensure that you are on the list if you will be attending.

3. Please let us know if you are not attending so we can remove your name.

4. FOOD: The owners of Zwartkops Raceway do not permit UJ TechnoLab to supply eats and drinks at the venue because they believe that would conflict with their own fast food business. Learners are advised to pack a lunch and something to drink.

5. There will be three buses to transport learners, the first is a 44 seat bus from University of Johannesburg Kingsway campus GATE ONE parking lot, the second bus is from Alexandra High School and the third bus is from Diepsloot North. The buses will arrive at each venue at 08h30 and depart each venue at 09h00 and arrive at Zwatkops Raceway at 10h00.

6. Get the PERMISSION FROM PARENTS TO PARTICIPATE FORM HERE. To participate you will need the permission of your parent, if you are under 18 (a minor).

7. Download, print and get one or both of your parents to sign the above form and bring it with on Sunday 16 October for when you get on the bus.
8. Make sure correct emergency telephone numbers for your parent/s are on the form.

9. Please ensure you are at the pick-up point/s by 08h30 as the bus(es) will depart 09h00 from the pick up points and will not turn back to get you if you are late. Then you will have to make your own way to the competition at your own cost.
