PRIZE WINDFALL FOR CAVENDISH GLEN SCHOOL

At the Cashbuild Cavendish Glen Store Opening Ceremony held on the 28th of August 2015, eight Cavendish Glen schools were each awarded with a Cashbuild building materials voucher for R15 000. All these schools were chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Among other repairs and refurbishment plans, the Cavendish Glen schools will use their vouchers to extend classrooms, replace taps and toilet seats as well as repaint the schools.
Mr Andre Page, the principal of Laerskool Kempton Park said his learners couldn’t believe that they have won, they are delighted in a sense that there is always maintenance issues around the school. Because the learners vandalise the school walls, they would like to start by repainting and then move on to replacing taps and toilet seats.

Mr Bernard Fourie, the principal of Edenica Private School said they definitely need to build a new wall around one of the classrooms so they will benefit a great deal from the Cashbuild voucher. The deputy principal of Cresslawn Primary School, Mrs Wallace, added, while thanking Cashbuild that they are very excited, they want to paint the whole school and the rest will be for general maintenance around the school.

At the official Cashbuild Cavendish Glen Store opening ceremony held on the 28th of August 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools.

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, Breyden Greyvenstein from Laerskool Impala. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
