FIVE lucky Port Elizabeth Express readers can each win a R200 voucher from PEP.

PEP, which has 70% of the school shoe market and over 57% of the uniform market in South Africa, is committed to finding ways of easing the increasing financial strain for its customers, who are the first to feel the strain of rising costs of fuel, electricity and food.

“Through our research over the years, one message that has been consistent from our customers is that their children’s education takes priority,” explains Nobesuthu Tom, PEP marketing director.

“They will often compromise on other things to pay for school fees and transport to school, as well as school-wear and stationery.”

This Back-to-School (BTS), PEP has negotiated with its manufacturers in order to freeze the price of the entry level Student Prince synthetic shoe at last year’s prices in an attempt to help customers during back to school: R59.99 for girls, size 8-1; R64.99 for boys, size 8-1).

This shoe is manufactured under the PEP Student Prince label, to ensure quality standards.

PEP’s Student Prince shoe range also includes a higher quality leather shoe, which is expected to be the lowest priced leather school shoe in the market this BTS period: R119.99 for girls (size 9-1) and R129.99 for boys (sizes 9-1).

PEP Managing Director, Leon Lourens says that a key part of PEP’s social responsibility at BTS is to help its customers with the best possible prices on all uniform items. “We have the buying might and we also manufacture many of the uniform items here in South Africa. Our constant aim is to bring down the cost of uniforms at BTS, without compromising our quality, while also maintaining stock levels of all school uniform items throughout the year.”

Another area in which PEP focuses its social responsibility in education is the PEP Academies. The PEP Academies, of which there are 17 in total, provide literacy and numeracy support classes for Grades 4 & 5 learners and will give nearly 3000 children after-school training in eleven schools on three afternoons a week.

All PEP Academies will
be giving educators tools for making the most of class time and will help shift the focus from
compliance and curriculum coverage to effectiveness and quality.
