The Chaperones will be assigned to the group for the entire duration of their visit. Student groups will be a maximum of 12 students, all of similar school year/age. Teachers are required to stay with your students throughout the day. If additional teachers/staff will be joining your group on the day please inform the YFYA team by providing full names in the comments box within the registration form.
