Schools to be upgraded in the Shoshanguve community

Cashbuild paves the way for a brighter future for learners within the Shoshanguve community. Pulamadibogo and Vukosi Schools are two of the eight schools which have each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on Friday, 31 October, 2014 at the Cashbuild Batho Plaza Store Opening Ceremony.

Mrs. Mooka, Principal of Pulamadibogo Primary School said: “We are excited. The competition could not have come at a better time. Our learners do not pay for school fees and there are many things which need to be done around the school. We continually have to grovel for money and this initiative made it so easy for us. We would like to have paving done from the gate to the school building.” Vukosi Primary School’s Principal, Mr. Tshabalala said: “We are glad that Cashbuild has given our learners a chance. Their talents have been recognized and because of the competition we now know that they are able to draw. We would like to use the voucher to replace the old doors and locks around our school. There are also five classrooms without ceilings and would like to start working on putting that up too.”

At the official Cashbuild Batho Plaza store opening ceremony on 31 October, 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, Thapelo Sepogwane from Mmatso Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
