The Sasol Energy Innovation Schools Competition was held in Carnival City casino on Thursday, 08 September 2022 where Sasolia primary school came victorious claiming the first position at the competition.

This followed after the school claimed victory, taking first position at the regionals which were held in Secunda  Sasol Club where 18 projects from schools around the Sasol Secunda fence line communities took part

They proceeded to the finals where they presented a magnetic powered mobile generator demonstrating the reduction of cost of electricity in households.

Yola Mzimhle together with Sinethemba Dludlu and Onele Mjungu are the three (3) learners who presented the winning project with the help of their science teacher Mr Vuyani Mzwakali.

The learners said they felt proud of winning the competition as they had put too much effort and hard work towards the project.

‘’It comes from the hard work of the learners as they were so dedicated in their work,” said Mr Vuyani Mzwakali, their Natural science  teacher.

The school won a cheque of twenty thousand Rand (R20 000.00) for the school, a trophy, certificates and tablets for each of the three learners who presented the project.

‘’I am very proud of the hard work the teachers put together as this competition started at a school level where many leaners took part, when the competition continued some of them dropped until the three went up to the regional competition where they did very well obtaining position one (1).

I extend my regards to the teachers and also the parents who played a vital role behind the learners,’’ said principal Gamede.

The school plans to utilize the funds towards purchasing science equipment so that all the grades can be in a position to start early with science experiments.
