Stationery festival a highlight for schools

(Port Elizabeth) – Hardworking teachers stand to be rewarded with a share of R20,000 worth of essential classroom supplies when they visit the PnA Stationery Festival at Baywest Mall on Friday, August 11.

GOOD NEWS: PnA store staff (back, from left) Jessica Geswindt, owner Francois Steenekamp, Sian Steenekamp, (middle, from left) Nadine Geswindt, Clarise Frost, Zelda Geswent and (front) Mandisa Kondile are hard at work preparing for the PnA Stationery Festival at Baywest on August 11 and 12.

The festival, which will be held in the Centre Court, will showcase the latest back-to-school products, office consumables, and related supplies and services from a range of national suppliers.

Baywest Mall marketing manager Lindsay Steele said the festival was an important initiative to recognise dedicated teachers who often invested their own time and money in teaching materials and classroom stationery.

“Aside from the competition for educators, all shoppers are welcome to walk through and see the latest stationery offerings. The festival runs until the Saturday and one lucky shopper could walk away with a Baywest Mall voucher worth R1,000.”

As far as the teachers’ competition was concerned, festival organiser and PnA Baywest owner Francois Steenekamp said there would be 10 product hampers to the value of R1,000 each, plus the grand prize of a R10,000 PnA voucher, up for grabs.

“To enter, teachers can collect an entry form at the festival, complete it by visiting each of the exhibitor stands, and drop it into the entry box provided.”

Steenekamp said 11 entries would be drawn on the Friday evening, and those finalists would be contacted to return for the attendance draw at noon on the Saturday.
