We also acknowledge our bursary fund students through their involvement in internship programmes, vacation work, and team-building workshops, as well as recognising their achievements at graduation events, and award presentations.

The Citrus Growers' Association of Southern Africa hosted the first CGA Citrus Summit on the 11th and 12th of March, at the Hans Merensky Hotel in Phalaborwa.
Aimed at citrus growers, the CGA Citrus Summit replaced the annual regional road show meetings for this year.
Citrus Academy staff were there, together with four of our bursary fund students - Diaan Oosthuizen, Warren Meyer, Yolanda Potelwa and Siphiwokuhle Nohamba.
Sam Louw, our programme coordinator, together with Louis von Broembsen, and Sonwabo Ncera, facilitate eleven Citrus Emergent Export Excellence workshops, held in various citrus regions nationwide over the next couple of months.
The aim of the workshops is to facilitate and enable new citrus growers to develop an understanding of citrus exports and export markets.
Citrus Academy's work readiness programme, Ready-Steady-Work, was held at Seula Zimbili in KwaZulu-Natal during November. Bursary Fund students from around the country spent the week doing coursework, and completing team-building exercises. Thank you to our sponsors, ClemenGold and Duroi for sponsoring a successful, and enjoyable week, and for supporting the future of citrus in South Africa.
