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

Potholes in the classroom floors, broken doors and a lack of security prompted the Boepakitso, Ditawana and Ikaneng Primary Schools to enter the Cashbuild Art at Heart competition in the hope that they might be able to improve conditions for learners. Entering paid off, as these three schools, along with five others in the Aeroton area were selected as winners and received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R12 000 each on 15 October 2010 at the Cashbuild Aeroton Store Opening Ceremony.

The Principal of Boepakitso Primary School, Mrs Lily Mbatha said: “We entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition hoping this would give us the chance to buy the necessary materials to improve our school. We want to install pigeon holes for the children to store their books in and pave the classroom floors as there are so many potholes. Cashbuild has made it possible for us to do this. We are so grateful.”

Ditawana Primary School Principal, Mrs Mirriam Tjabane, another of the eight winners that benefited from the Cashbuild Aeroton Store Opening Ceremony said: “There is so much excitement in the air at the thought of having a new look for our school as we have wanted to repair the equipment for a long time.”

The total donation of building material to the value of R96 000 were presented by Cashbuild to the eight schools at the Aeroton store opening ceremony on 15 October 2010. At the opening, the school children showed their appreciation by entertaining everyone with cultural dances, theatrical performances and traditional singing.

Learners from each school submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild. The artwork was displayed at the Aeroton 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 winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day –Sifiso Motaung from Ikaneng Primary School received a R500 stationery voucher and a glass trophy.

At the store opening event there was a lucky draw and one school walked away with a solar geyser and free installation. This prize will ensure that the winning school has hot water regardless of the lack of resources within their community.
