Maake schools welcomes art into their hearts

Schools in the Maake area have big plans for how they will use their winnings from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. From new kitchens to newly built Learners’ Centre, Ntwanano, Sepeke Primary School and six other Maake schools will soon realise their dreams of improving their schools. On 10 April 2014, each of the schools received a Cashbuild building materials voucher to the value of R12 000 when the Cashbuild Maake Store officially opened.

Principal GM Nkhwashu from Ntwanano Lower Primary School said: “Our school was established in 1969 and is still in a very good condition. However, we currently have a vegetable garden and no form of cooking area to prepare meals for the learners. We would like to use our voucher to purchase building materials to build a kitchen.”

Principal ED Mathebula from Sepeke Primary School said: “The classrooms at the school are in a very bad condition. We are planning to use our Cashbuild voucher to repair the damage and build a Learners’ Centre at the school.”

At the official Cashbuild Maake store opening ceremony on 10 April, 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, Masetle Maponya from Rita Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
