Even face masks couldn’t hide the Wembley children’s excitement at the donation of 38 Samsung tablets by Jupidex.
Koot and Liam van der Merwe arrived at Wembley College earlier this week to deliver the tablets to the Wembley Junior school on behalf of the company. They will be used to assist children with their online learning. Koot, the company’s MD, believes “education is the most important component for the future of South Africa”.
He started Jupidex (Pty) Ltd more than 20 years ago and it is now part of the Plennegy Group of companies.

Not only does Jupidex have a passion for distributing the best agricultural products in Southern Africa, but it also has a passion for helping people. With Covid-19 enforced separation and health and safety implications, education is facing new challenges in keeping up with a technological world.
The pace of development in the tech world is also a constant challenge for teachers and pupils alike.
Jupidex hopes that these devices will add value to the education of Wembley College pupils, helping them to prepare for the future.
