AACL Johannesburg Inspires Young Minds Through Poster & Poetry Competition

The Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL) Johannesburg is thrilled to announce the successful conclusion of its 2023 School Poster & Poetry Competition, centred around the theme, ‘Every day is a good day to be kind to animals.’ This engaging initiative aimed to foster compassion and creativity among South African primary school learners, encouraging them to express their thoughts and feelings about the welfare of animals through art and poetry.

The competition, which ran from the 1st of June 2023 to 12 pm on the 31st of October 2023, witnessed enthusiastic participation from young minds across the country. The event not only provided a platform for individual recognition but also introduced a spirited inter-school element, as the school with the highest number of entries would win a coveted Roland Stika SV-15 cutter.

After careful tallying of the entries, Boskop Primary School in Rand Park Ridge emerged victorious, securing the Roland Stika SV-15 cutter for their school. This state-of-the-art cutter, sponsored by Telpro, will undoubtedly enhance the school’s creative capabilities, and contribute to the development of future artistic talents. The printer was handed over to Mrs. V Le Roux the Principal.

“We are immensely proud of the young talents who participated in this competition. Their artistic expressions and heartfelt art & poetry truly exemplify the spirit of kindness towards animals,” said Johan Steenkamp, Education Officer for AACL Johannesburg. “Congratulations to Boskop Primary School for their outstanding contribution, and we extend our gratitude to Telpro for their generous sponsorship of the Roland Stika SV-15 cutter.”
