Developing young people through sport
Developing with purpose
The purpose of sport is to provide a positive avenue for healthy living and for active social interaction between people. The value and enjoyment of sport is learned at a young age. For this reason, Giflo is passionate about school sport. So much so that school sport sponsorship is an important way for the company to give back to its community.
Giflo believes strongly in the development of youth through the inherent values of sport.
As a long-term investor in sport, this year Giflo is the proud sport sponsor of;
- Paarl Gimnasium High School (rugby),
- Paarl Gimnasium Primary School (athletics and tennis),
- Courtrai Primary School (rugby and netball) and
- Paarl Boys’ Primary School (rugby, hockey, tennis, cricket and chess).
Giflo has also recently added water polo co-sponsorship to the list of sport disciplines it supports and signed up as the swimming pool naming rights sponsor at Paarl Girls’ High School for the next five years.
Giflo sponsorship branding has been prominently displayed on first team rugby jerseys, at the field of play and in other brand marketing material for all the sports sponsored, namely, athletics, rugby, hockey, water polo, netball, tennis, cricket and chess.
Paarl Gimnasium High School was again ranked as South Africa’s number one rugby school in 2022. This highly acclaimed school has so far produced 31 Springboks and six Sevens Springboks (Blitsbokke). Of the school’s 174 Craven Week players, 45 also played for the SA Schools team.
