Mpumalanga Addiction Rehabilitation Centre

The Mpumalanga Addiction Rehabilitation Centre MARC of Piet Retief recently hosted a colouring and poster contest for local scholars.

The purpose of the competition was to use a fun and creative medium to create awareness regarding the prevention of substance abuse amongst the youth of Mkhondo. Thus, each colouring picture and poster had a message on the prevention of using drugs.

This contest received a whopping total of 210 entries and from those, the winner and five runners-up were selected.

The best poster was designed by Siyabonga Mdluli of Amadlelo Secondary School. Congratulations!

The five runners-up were:

Harmony Park Combined School:

  • Samkelo Ntshalintshali
  • Siphelele Nkosi
  • Sibahle Dlongolo

Nqobile Primary School:

  • Bafana Nyawo
  • Andiswa Msibi

The winners were treated to a delicious lunch at Tuscarora Spur on Thursday, 31 October. They each also received a certificate and a gift basket filled with stationery, art-supplies and snacks, sponsored by Boxer and Pick n Pay Church Street.

Thank you to all who participated in this competition and thank you to the sponsors.

A special thank you to the management and staff of the Mpumalanga Addiction Rehabilitation Centre who continuously support our community in the fight against drugs.
