 Eunice Leadership Project

The Eunice High School in Bloemfontein each year is gives matric girls the opportunity to develop their leadership skills in which they have to identify and execute a project. A group from this school got their inspiration from a Siyandiza programme and named their project “TOY SOLDIERS - WE ARE FLYING”
This group approached AFB Bloemspruit to help them with this project and to give children an opportunity they will never forget. Their idea was to identify children from an orphanage and to entertain them for the day. They identified 8 children from an orphaned from an institution called “Ons Kinderhuis”. As part of the day programme the children were taken to McDonalds’ for a meal and thereafter taken for a visit to the Air Force Base.
On arrival they were entertained by the 506 Squadron Dog Unit who presented them with a dog show. They then visited the Fire Section where firemen entertained the group with a presentation on the fire enjin.
The highlight of the day came when the children were flown back to Eunice High School where they landed safely in an Oryx helicopter on the hockey field.
