SPAR South Africa offers free online maths course to children

May 19, 2020 IN THE CATEGORY: Community, COVID-19, Responsible retailing

SPAR South Africa has partnered with maths skills development company Numberwise to help young learners across the country boost their maths skills from home during the lockdown. SPAR is offering a one-year free subscription worth R300 to those who register during April, May, and June 2020 using a SPAR discount code.

Already used by more than 60,000 learners, the Numberwise Math learning app is tailored to help children strengthen their core maths knowledge to progress to more complex mathematics.

Numberwise allows learners to work at their own pace in a fun and engaging way, while all calculations are stored in the cloud, providing important analytics for monitoring learner progress by a parent or teacher. Numberwise is available on Windows, OSX, Android, and iOS.

To register, download the app from your app store and use the following free registration code: SPAR185-365.

Going the extra mile
Since the start of the national lockdown as a result of COVID-19, SPAR retailers in South Africa have gone the extra mile to offer support to their respective communities.

SPAR South Africa is also turning the egg challenge – a global social media craze – on its head. While the original challenge requires participants to drink an egg with a scoop of sugar and then chase it down with alcohol or another beverage, the SPAR version encourages shoppers to donate daily essentials to those in need, helping feed millions of South Africans who are going to bed hungry.

About SPAR South Africa

SPAR South Africa was established in 1963 and operates four retail formats: SPAR, SPAR Express (operated in conjunction with Shell as a petrol forecourt store), KWIKSPAR (which focuses on convenience in city centres and high footfall locations) and SUPERSPAR (similar to EUROSPAR in offer).

South Africa was the first country outside of Europe to join the SPAR organisation. The SPAR Group Ltd South Africa grants sub-licences to independent retailers to operate stores under one of the four formats, with almost all of the current store portfolio being independently owned.
