Today we have the pleasure of welcoming a new lot of interns to our school. They will be taking over our social programme, social media and will generally contribute to every student’s experience while studying at Oxford English Academy. We are very excited to have them board and I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce them.

Firstly I would like to welcome 23 year old Tom Meertens from Beek near Maastricht in the Netherlands. Tom enjoys playing football and describes himself as motivated, inquisitive and flexible.  He will be doing an impact study on blended learning for our school and we look forward to the results.

Bruno Ferrere from Reunion Island is very excited to be in Cape Town for the next two months. As a keen volleyball player, we trust he will be teaching our students all about the sport on Camps Bay beach. Bruno is currently studying Business and Management at EGC Business School. He describes himself as a curious person who wants to discover new things and is very interested in the business world.

Anne-Fleur also hails from the Netherlands and is currently busy with a bachelor’s degree in International Business and Management Studies at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. She loves spending time with her friends and going to the gym. Other than Cape Town she would love to travel to New York. Anne will be mainly focussed on our marketing and social media departments.

Lastly we would like to welcome Raymon Koewenhoven who is currently studying Business Administration at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. Raymon has a keen interest in meeting new people from different cultures, which is why he opted for an internship in South Africa. Raymon is also a keen football player. Perhaps this could be the start of the Oxford English Academy football team?

We have already tasked our new team with arranging a Spring Party this coming Friday and look forward to seeing what they come up with. I am sure their contribution to the school will be invaluable and we wish them all the best for their time with us. Watch out on all our social media pages for this young dynamic team!
