CASHBUILD STEPS UP TO HELP SCHOOLS IN DOBSONVILLE

Eight schools in the Dobsonville 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 Dobsonville Store Opening Ceremony on the 25th January 2018. The principals of some of the winning schools said that the Cashbuild vouchers will be spent on tiles, paint, general materials and items such as doors, windows and toilets, to name but a few.

Makhoarane Primary School, Mayibuye Primary School and Hector Peterson Primary School were three of the eight schools which received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000.

Makhoarane Primary School principal, Charlotte Ndwanbi expressed great joy and said: "We have identified that the most urgent need right now is to tile some of the classroom's floors. We are so grateful to Cashbuild for this wonderful prize".

An extremely happy MB Malinga, principal of Mayibuye Primary School said: "We will be using the R15 000 voucher to paint the passages, bathrooms and do general touch up maintenance where most needed. "

Principal of Hector Peterson Primary School is so grateful to Cashbuild and cannot thank them enough for making what he thought was the impossible, possible. "We plan to use the voucher for renovations by replacing doors, toilets and broken handles. We also need gardening tools to enable us to create a pretty garden for the school grounds." added Mr Bonongo.

At the official Cashbuild Dobsonville Store Opening Ceremony on 25th January 2018, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were issued 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 judged and presented to a learner from Makhoarane Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the store.
