Acornhoek gets R96 000 from Cashbuild's Art-at-Heart

Welverdien Primary School plans to build a library at the school, so the learners can easily access the books and to store and protect the books properly. This will also facilitate keeping a record of books that are borrowed from the library, because currently the school’s books often go missing without a trace.

The school is able to build its new library because it entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and is one of eight lucky schools in the Acornhoek area which each received a R12 000 Cashbuild building materials voucher.

“Currently we have book corners made out of boxes in each classroom and the books are becoming damaged because they are not packed correctly, making it hard to use for learning purposes. We are really pleased about this donation”, said Mr Jeroboam Police Manzini Principal of the school.

The donation of building materials to the value of R 96 000 was presented by Cashbuild to the eight schools at the Acornhoek store relaunch ceremony on 27 November 2009. At the opening, the school children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances.
Learners from each school submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild. The artwork was displayed at the Acornhoek opening ceremony, and will remain on display for the next five years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. The winning children received Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates for first, second and third place respectively. The Manager’s Choice award was also presented to the lucky overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day – Phuso Mashile from Seganyane Primary School received a stationery voucher and a glass trophy.
