Recycled chandeliers at Morningside Shopping Centre find new home at Grayston Prep School
Learners at Grayston Preparatory School will now be able to see for themselves that recycling isn’t only better for our environment but can help make the world a little more beautiful too. On Wednesday, 14 March 2018 Morningside Shopping Centre donated five chandeliers that were hanging in the centre to Grayston Preparatory School. The chandeliers, shaped into exquisite balls of white flowers, are made from recycled plastic milk bottles by acclaimed South African artist Heath Nash. Through art, Nash aims to shine a light on the importance of environmental sustainability through recycling. Morningside Shopping Centre manager, Sharon Henry says the centre is thrilled to continue building strong ties with schools in the community while also caring for the environment by carrying on the artist’s vision to reduce, reuse and recycle. “Morningside Shopping Centre has become the community shopping centre of choice for the surrounding school's families and we are delighted that our chandeliers will find a new purpose in educating youngsters about art and conservation.” Che McKay, Head of Grayston Preparatory School, adds: “The School is very grateful for the generous donation of the recycled chandeliers. We’re looking forward to displaying the chandeliers around the school campus and educating the learners on how art can be created using simple recycled materials. We also look forward to a long healthy relationship with Morningside Shopping Centre.” Morningside Shopping Centre is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm, and on Sunday and public holidays from 9am to 3pm.
