CASHBUILD HELPS TO UPLIFT DIEPSLOOT SCHOOLS

Eight schools in the Diepsloot area were 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 Diepsloot Store Opening Ceremony on the 23rd November 2017. Painting, paving, new window handles, fencing and a new classroom are just some of the improvements that the school principals plan to do using their Cashbuild vouchers.

Diepsloot Primary School No 4, Akani Metmar School and Rabasotho Combined School were three of the eight schools which received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000.

Diepsloot Primary No 4 School's Principal, MJ Makhafola said: "We are thrilled to have been chosen and so proud of our learners. The vouchers would be used for much needed paving as the school was originally built on a dump site and is always covered in dust and mud so the paving will make so much difference to the learners."

They would also like to replace the window handles as most of them are broken so they can't close them which makes it very cold for the learners in winter and the other handles have been stolen. MJ Makhafola added: "They would also like to paint the outside of the school as it hasn't been painted in many years."

SI Jeke, Principal of Akani Metmar School said: "We are delighted and very grateful to Cashbuild to have been chosen for this. Our main priority is to erect fencing around the school grounds to keep learners safe. We would also look at painting the outside of the school to make to make it as beautiful as our scholars which is just another one of the much needed upgrades we would love to do."

The Principal of Rabasotho Combined School mentioned: "Our priority at this stage is to build another classroom for our learners and then do as much maintenance as this wonderful donation will allow."

At the official Cashbuild Diepsloot Store Opening Ceremony on the 23rd November 2017, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were handed 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, Mbalenhle Radebe  from Diepsloot Primary School No 4. 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.
