Smiles at Athlone School for the Blind

It was all smiles at the Athlone School for the Blind, thanks to CPUT staff members who donated a pair of schools shoes.

The school shoes were packaged in CPUT bags and dropped off at the school by the Marketing and Communication Department.

Situated in Bellville, the school provides education for blind and visually impaired children from some of the Western Cape’s poorest communities.

The school’s psychologist, Patricia Scheepers, thanked CPUT and says the donation of schools shoes is much needed.

A big thank you to all staff who decided to give back and make a difference in the lives of children!

School Shoe Success

WOW! CPUT staff are awesome!

Thank you to all staff members who donated a pair of school shoes and for making CPUT’s first 10th birthday social responsibility drive such a huge success.

We even received some grey school pants!

Also, a big thank you to all other individuals who donated, such as friends and family members of CPUT staff members, as well as alumni.

A special thank you goes out to learners at the CBC St Johns in Parklands who donated school shoes along with their teachers, Janene Mostert and Dominque Afonso, both CPUT alumni.

School shoes wanted


Our first social responsibility drive is up and running!

Up until the end of February we would like all staff members to contribute a pair of brand new school shoes (or two or three).

Remember, it’s for a really good cause.  We want to put shoes on the feet of learners who will one day end up studying at CPUT!

With stores running back to school campaigns, it’s easy to find a pair. And the choice is yours – we are looking for any size and make for boys and girls.

And if your budget’s a bit tight this month after the festive season, why not get together with a colleague or two and purchase a pair.

We will collect the shoes in February, so for now buy your pair and store it at home. We will send out an email to let you know exactly where you can drop off your contribution.

Come on CPUT, let’s show our communities that WE CARE!
