Evan Healey – Newtons Office Superbru Pool

Congratulations to Evan Healey on winning the Newtons Office Superbru Pool.

Newtons – Mandela Day 2019

It only takes 7 basic colours to make a rainbow. So with 11 official languages, each granted equal status by our Constitution, it’s easy to understand why South Africa is fondly known as the “Rainbow Nation”. With so many beautiful shades, our cultural and ethnic diversity is so rich that often we as South African citizens don’t even understand one another.

We’re sharing some basic greetings and words in South Africa’s 11 official languages because, as our dear Madiba said, when you speak to someone in their mother tongue, you speak straight to their heart.

We divided into teams and each team had one of our National Languages to teach the rest of the office.
