Eight schools to benefit from Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition


The local Cashbuild outlet changed the lives of local learners for the better when it gave local schools an opportunity to win big.  Eight local schools won themselves Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000. The prizes was handed out at the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Lebowakgomo Central store which took place on the 6th of June

This was part of its Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition which entails learners from local institutions submitting their best artwork to the store.

The chosen schools that participated included Beldfrift , Morotse, Malekapane, Dithabaneng, Malemati, Lesetsi, Tjiane and Baseloane Primary schools .

The Manager’s Choice was awarded to a learner from Byldrift Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition.
This award was announced on the day and the winning learner received a stationery pack and a trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the refurbished store.

Morotse Primary School, Malemati Primary School and Baseloane Primary School were just three of the eight schools that received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Mrs Kekana, the principal of Malemati Primary School, said they will be using part of the voucher to start building extra classrooms. “We are happy, because we can start building some new classrooms to house our growing number of learners. We would also like to build a proper kitchen which we can use to cook and serve lunch to the learners, as we are currently using a make-shift shelter.” Mrs Kekana said they would also like to build an additional safe room to house their computer equipment.   

Morotse Primary School’s principal, Mrs Themba, will be using the voucher to paint the school’s roof. “We are so grateful to Cashbuild, because we are now able to paint the roof of the school as it is in need of a much needed fresh coat of paint.” She added that they will be using some of the voucher to pay materials for the construction of a school entrance hall where they will display the school’s vision and motto. 

Baseloane Primary School’s principal, Mr Makaleng, will be using the voucher for two main items on their list. “Firstly, we would like to tile a few classrooms. At the moment, the floors in some classrooms are in need of some urgent maintenance. We would also like to upgrade and reinforce the fence around the school grounds. This will improve the safety of our learners.” He added that they are thankful to Cashbuild for this prize. 

According to the management of the store, an upgraded kitchen, new doors and bathrooms are some of the repairs that the schools plan to make.

“We donated a total of R120 000. Each school received a Cashbuild building-material voucher worth R15 000. Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. Winners received Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates.

The Art-at-Heart competition is a Southern African Cashbuild initiative whereby donations are made to needy schools. Since the campaign’s launch 18 years ago, Cashbuild has helped more than 3 200 schools with over R40 million’s worth of building material.
