Thai-Student-Visit-to-Wittenborg-University-April-2012.pngThe group, consisting of five boys and nineteen girls aged between twelve and sixteen, were accompanied by two leaders from KAS Education Centre, Thailand and have spent 4 days visiting Apeldoorn, Epe and Amsterdam.

During their stay in Apeldoorn, they spent a day in classes with Wittenborg Preparation Year students following IELTS English classes, and last night entertained their hosts with a splendid show of traditional Thai dancing. The group was welcomed on Wednesday to Apeldoorn by Alderman Johan Kruithof, from the local Apeldoorn government (Gemeente Apeldoorn) and were given a tour of the City Hall complex.

On Thursday the students spent the morning at a secondary school in Epe, the RSG N.O.-Veluwe, following classes together with their Dutch counterparts.
