m=Educ8:
Makro has launched a new programme to help parents support the school their children go to. We are asking all parents to please download the Makro mCard on your cellphone and then to sign up for the m=Educ8 programme. Every time you then swipe your Makro card, Little Porcupine or Benjamin Prep will earn rewards. For every R1 000 you spend, the school will earn R5. As you know and see every day, both these schools offer your child/ren so much more than other schools. All of this is only possible with the support of every parent in the school. We do thank you in advance for downloading the App and supporting us, while you still earn your own rewards as per normal.
