“I was motivated last year and I have won the Academic Prize. I was able to buy my uniform and stationery with the voucher. The initiative has a positive effect on our learners performance and I really appreciate the support. Thank you Nkomazi Plaza for contributing to my education. ” - Dladla Nomonde, Grade 7 student at Magewu Primary School

Through the Academic Prize Programme, Capital Land identifies up to ten schools in the area surrounding the shopping centre that they manage, and implements the sponsorship of an academic prize to each school annually. The academic prize consists of a floating merit board which is engraved with the prize winner’s name, a gift voucher to a selected shop at the shopping centre in the community, and the prize winner’s school fees for the next academic year are paid for in full where possible, or a contribution is made toward the fees.

The prize is awarded to the top academic student in Grade 6 for junior schools and Grade 11 for senior schools.
