HENRYVILLE Primary School was awarded R50 000 last Friday for winning the Morvite pack collection competition.

The competition ran from June to November 2017, where pupils had to collect as many Morvite plastic packs as they could.

Henryville was named the winner out of 260 schools that entered the competition from all over the country.

The competition was organised by Minanawe Marketing on behalf of Morvite.

Sanelisiwe Ntuli from Minanawe said the aim of the competition was to raise awareness among parents and teachers that Morvite is not only suitable for breakfast but it can be eaten as a lunch-time meal or even consumed as a drink.

School principal Fikile Ngcobo said they are very excited and proud. “We have never won such a big amount [of money] before. We have made history. This day will never be forgotten at Henryville.

“This is all because of the collective effort that we had at the school.

“We have dedicated staff who are always willing to go the extra mile, doing the things that will develop the school.

“They went as far as buying Morvite for the pupils with money from their own pockets. Each teacher would come to school with packs of Morvite so that the pupils could get as many packs as possible.

“We wanted to push as much as we could in order to win this competition and we did,” she said.

Ngcobo promised that the money will be used to build a shelter as the children sometimes have to stand in the sun or rain during assembly.

School governing body member Nhlanhla Madlala also applauded the teachers and the pupils for their hard work, saying that he is impressed with the work the teachers are doing together with the children.
