Now in its second year, Printing SA celebrated International Day of Print and encouraged all members of their organisation as well as the local youth to participate in the global 24-hour celebration.
This annual celebration is aimed at highlighting the creativity, importance and power of print and paper, and was celebrated by both the trade and local school, Phomolong Secondary School in Thembisa, Kempton Park.
Printing SA took the celebration a step further and for the first time, involved and formulated a specific skills transfer training course at Phomolong Secondary School aimed at encouraging these youth to ‘Think Ink’.
Forty of the school’s top performing Maths and Physical Science learners from Grade 8 and 9 participated in an interactive screen printing course as well as materials to complete various tasks. The top three learners were then each awarded prizes for outstanding work at a special assembly.
