Daveyton schools get a facelift

Work on Daveyton schools will now be carried out, thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Kingsway Intermediate School and Thembelihle Primary School are two of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 28 August 2014 at the Cashbuild Daveyton Store Opening Ceremony. Mrs. Regina Makofane, Principal of Thembelihle Primary School said: “We are very excited to have won and did not expect this at all. We would like to improve our Grade R facilities.”

Mr. Lerato Mahetjie, Deputy Principle of Kingsway Intermediate School said: “We are very happy and we would like to fix our flooring in our mobile classes which are sinking in at the moment. We will replace it with new wooden boards.” At the official Cashbuild Daveyton store opening ceremony on 28 August, 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, Mogale Maponya from Putfontein Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
