PUTTING LEARNER CREATIVITY TO GOOD USE

Fencing, Roofing and library facilities are just a few of the concerns voiced by eight principals in the Acornhoek area. Senianya Primary School, St. George Combined School and Mapalane Primary Schools were three of the eight schools that won the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. All these schools each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 on 23 September 2015 at the Cashbuild Acornhoek Store Opening Ceremony.

The principal of Senianya Primary School said their school has a problem as it is invaded by dogs in the area, they would like to do proper fencing around the school as these dogs often disturb the classrooms. The principal of St. George Combined School, J Jacobs added, that while thanking Cashbuild the learners were so happy they were clapping hands, stamping their feet and making all kinds of joyful noises. They have decided to do some roofing as they have a couple of leaks. Mapalane Primary School's principal, E Malomane said their school is in need of a library or book storage facility. They would also like to paint and do some general maintenance around the school.

At the official Cashbuild Acornhoek Store opening ceremony held on the 23rd of September 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools. The Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition entails learners from each school submitting their best artwork to Cashbuild. This artwork is displayed at the ceremony, and then remains on display in the Cashbuild store for the next five years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. Winners 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 overall winner, Tsweletso Dlamin from Tshokolo Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
