A brighter future for Amalinda learners

A fresh coat of paint, upgraded sanitary facilities and new classrooms are just a few of the things that Parkside, A.W. Barnes and Althorpe Primary School have in mind for their schools after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. These schools and five others have each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 25 February 2015 at the Cashbuild Amalinda Store Opening Ceremony.

Isaiah 58 Primary School’s Principal Mr. C.R. Jansen said: “Our school building which includes the classrooms, toilets and dining hall is in dire need of a facelift and we would like to make use of our winnings for this. We would like to give our building a fresh coat of paint.” Parkside Primary School’s Principal Mr. Brian Fritz said: “The school is in desperate need of Grade two classes to accommodate eighty learners and we would like to make use of our voucher for this.”

At the official Cashbuild Amalinda store opening ceremony on 25 February, when the building material vouchers totaling R96 000 were presented to all eight schools, the children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. 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, Jasson Scheepers from Parkside Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
