In 2020, Brand SA launched its “Play Your Part” online challenge for schools in SA to show how they are making a positive difference in their communities.

Aimed at grade 11 and 12 learners, schools were asked to enter by sharing pictures and videos of themselves making a positive difference in their communities and tagging @OfficialBrandSouthAfrica @PlayYourPart using the hashtags #GetInvolved #PayYourPart. The winning schools each won a prize worth R50,000.

Northern Cape: Roodepan High School in Kimberley

“Though 2020 was an unprecedented year on so many levels, we were reminded that we can all make a difference, even if we are not physically together,” says Sithembile Ntombela, Brand SA’s general manager for marketing.

“We want to commend all the schools that took part in this challenge for reminding us of the power of ubuntu and how, even in the most challenging of circumstances, we can still make a difference in the lives of those around us. This is what the Play Your Part programme is all about.”
