The contest took place in 150 schools in Gauteng, Western and Eastern Cape. The aim of this fun and fantastic competition is to celebrate World Kids Colouring Day. This is done through supporting fundraising efforts and offered kids the opportunity to colour their planet for children in need. The project also aims at showing how creativity can change lives in big and small ways.
The winning school stood a chance to win an art classroom makeover to the value of R10,000, stationery from Staedtler to the value of R6,000 as well as cash prizes for the hero learner and teacher.
Congratulations to Pro-Ed Private School who raised the highest amount - a whopping R10,000 - to be crowned winners of the prize!
"Pro-Ed would like to express its gratitude over all the hard work that you and your team put together to make yesterday a success. It is our view that your hard work paid off in big way and hope this continues in other events as well," said Mr Ndou, Principal, Pro-Ed Private School.
The colourful makeover reveal and exciting prize handover were done on 19 August 2013!
Pro-Ed student Moseli Manqina received a cheque for R1,000 for her great collection efforts, and Grade teacher Mrs Cronje received a cheque for R1,000 for being the hero teacher of the year!
Congratulations to the winners, and well done to everyone who took part in this amazing project.
Kerry Harrison, National Sales & Marketing Manager, Staedtler (SA) (Pty) Ltd, commented, "It's such a pleasure to encounter such a degree of professionalism."
Here's to colour, creativity and visual literacy, and here's to putting another smile on the face of a CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation) kid!
