Denlyn Shopping Centre, the number 1 community shopping centre, greatly admires and strives to add value to its surrounding community.
This aspiration brings to life the Denlyn Stars Initiative which acknowledges excellence in our communities by nominating shining stars who fight to improve their lives through a positive attitude and hard work.
Every three months Denlyn will again begin its search for the next Denlyn Star. We ask that the community nominate inspirational figures of any age and in any category in which they excel, this can be academics, sport, leadership, innovation.
After the nomination process, a number of finalists will be announced and you, the community and loved ones, will vote for your favourite Denlyn Star. The finalist who gets the most votes will take the title of Denlyn Star and will get assistance, guidance and upskilling from Denlyn Shopping Centre and their partnering associations in areas such as finance, employment, education, training and networking.

All Our Denlyn Stars
Siyabonga Hadebe was the first-ever Denlyn Star and is one of the top pupils in her grade, chairperson and organiser of the RISE Young Women's Club and a youth leader in her church, was chosen because she is a young lady who appreciates and is driven to maintain high standards of quality and excellence.
In August 2018, Siya will be travelling to the USA on a full year Exchange and Study Scholarship where she will be staying with a host family and studying at a high school in California until July 2019.
To assist her on her journey Denlyn Shopping Centre and their holding company Safari Investments RSA have gifted Siyabonga with an HP250 G6 Notebook PC fully installed with Microsoft Office.
Siya, our first Denlyn star was well received by her host family in the USA. There has been a lot of orientations and welcome parties and she is doing well so far with her intercultural learning. Last Thursday was her first day at school. She has enrolled very interesting subjects like American History, some Junior Air Force Leadership programme and digital photography.
Siya is now busy applying for a scholarship at the USA Leadership Academy, an opportunity that was presented to her during our pre-departure orientations which has many opportunities for her future career choices. If she gets accepted, she will not be doing mainstream schooling on her return
