In 2009, Growthpoint Properties decided to make a corporate social investment in education. The result was Growsmart, an educational programme that supports the Western Cape Education Department and the Eastern Cape Department of Education in helping to improve literacy, mathematics, science, writing and debating levels in primary schools.
The Western Cape Education Department and the Eastern Cape Department of Education
Growthpoint works closely with the two education departments to ensure that Growsmart is relevant and applicable to the teaching curriculum for Grades 4 to 6.
Making dreams come true
On the final round of the Growsmart competition, the winners are rewarded with substantial prizes worth more than R 500 000. There are many inspiring, heart-warming stories that have come out of Growsmart, as well as heaps of positive feedback from parents, teachers and learners.
