APRIL UP COUNTRY SCHOOL VISITS Our national director, Nina Voges, took an expedition to the Gauteng Province where she was accompanied by the Gauteng regional head, Rynette, and Paco, who is an intern from the Netherlands. Together they visited schools in and around the province to expand the YFU relationship with potential students and host families. “During the two weeks Rynette, the intern Paco Bleeker from the Netherlands and I, visited 16 schools in Middelburg, Witbank, Rustenburg, Krugersdorp, Britz and Bronkhorstspruit. The aim was two-fold, namely to establish contact with new schools where we have never been before. We introduced our program to the principals, handed them flyers and posters and explained the concept. In addition we also set up appointments for presentations during which our in and outbound programs would be explained fully to the students. While our aim at this time of the year is mainly to find potential host families, we have also used the opportunity to market the outbound program. We were very well received at all the schools and they have expressed a positive attitude towards working with us. All the schools provided us with the opportunity to do presentations.� Dr Voges said. CROSSWORD PUZZLE TEST YOUR YFU KNOWLEDGE
