DENNILTON SCHOOLS WIN WITH CASHBUILD

Eight schools in the Dennilton area were the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. They each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000 at the Cashbuild Dennilton Store Opening Ceremony held on the 28th of July 2017. Urgent roof repairs, a newly built library as well as paving are some of the improvements the school principals plan to make.

Thabakhubedu, Sibisi and Ekucathuleni Primary Schools were three of the eight schools that each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000. Thabakhubedu Primary School's Principal, K Makitla said the storm blew off their roof two years ago and, as a result, they teach their learners outside under the trees. On rainy days as they have to postpone classes, they would like Cashbuild to assist them with repairing and maintaining their roof.

M Ezekiel, Principal of Sibisi Primary School said they would like to build a library. Their school books are stored in an outside shack and learners do not have a place where they can read besides their classrooms. The Principal of Ekucathuleni Primary School, E Nyalangu added that they would like to pave the school grounds as it is bumpy with potholes.

At the official Cashbuild Dennilton store opening ceremony held on the 28th of July 2017, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 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 six 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, Lucky Mncube from Phooko Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner also officially opened the store.
