Shoprite offers low cost uniform, school fee competition


Shoprite is doing its part to ease the burden of rising education costs with an offer of school uniform for under R100 while running a competition in which 460 learners can have their 2019 school fees paid for.
For less than R100, customers are able to buy a basic school uniform consisting of a shirt, shorts or skirt, socks and a pair of shoes at selected stores, including Polokwane.
Learners who enter the retailer’s Class of 2019 competition stand a chance to be one of hundreds of deserving winners to have their school fees paid for by Shoprite.
The Class of 2019 competition runs from 3 till 27 January and requires Grade 1 to 12 learners across South Africa to submit a short essay or creative drawing describing what they wish to be when they grow up.
A statement released by Shoprite on Monday informed that the competition gives Shoprite the opportunity to support learners who demonstrate creativity and are able to dream big. “The low-price uniforms and fee competition form part of the retailer’s unwavering commitment to deliver the lowest prices on essentials every day, and help to give learners the opportunity to become educated without concerns about affordability.”
Competition entry forms are available at all Shoprite stores across South Africa or on the Shoprite website at https://www.shoprite.co.za/. Winners will be announced early February.
