Bloemfontein learners show off their talents and win

Overdue Bloemfontein school maintenance projects will now be completed thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Lagae Intermediate and Sand Du Plessis Primere Skool are two of the seven schools that entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart Competition and won building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 13 February 2014 at the Cashbuild Bloemfontein Store Opening Ceremony.

Lagae Intermediate School’s Principal A.S. Mlonyeni said: “The school has many problems that can be fixed with our building material voucher. We are currently using the assembly area to host events because we do not have a school hall. The assembly area is often muddy and wet when it rains and that is why we want to pave it.”

Principal J. Van Der Merwe from Sand Du Plessis Primere Skool said: “We are so thankful to Cashbuild for choosing our school as one of the winners. We are planning to upgrade eight toilets in the foundation phase.”

At the official Cashbuild Bloemfontein store opening ceremony on 13 February, when the building material vouchers totaling R84 000 were presented to all seven 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 lucky winner, Anton Van Rhyn from Staatspresident Swart Primere Skool for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
