The retailer is giving away 20 gift cards, each to the value of R50 000, to schools across the country.
Learners from Grade 1 to Grade 12 can nominate a school and motivate why it deserves to win one of the 20 prizes on offer. Entrants can nominate a school by sending “Class of 2023” to 087 240 5709 on WhatsApp and following the instructions OR enter online. Ts & Cs apply.
A draw will take place after 28 February 2023 to announce the winning schools, who will receive gift cards for either tech products and gadgets, sports equipment, stationery or groceries. Apply before 5 February 2023 on Shoprite's website.
A lifetime of learning
Advancing early childhood development (ECD) is also a core part of the Shoprite Group’s social responsibility efforts. Equipping young children with foundational skills paves the way toward a lifetime of learning.
The Group’s support of 107 ECD centres across South Africa – through skills training for practitioners and the provision of 381 590 nutritious meals – benefitted 7 151 children during the last financial year and will be continued in 2023.
Discounts for schools
To further assist schools, Shoprite’s Edu Card gives educational institutions an automatic discount of up to 2.5% off all essential goods, including stationery, cleaning products and more. See here for more information and to apply.
