Elim schools get a facelift this Mandela month

Eight Elim schools have won building material vouchers worth R12 000 each in the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Hlalelani Primary School and Masungulo Primary School are two of the schools that were presented with their voucher on 25 July 2014 at the official Cashbuild Elim Store Opening Ceremony. Mr. MS Baloyi, Principal of Hlalelani Primary School expressed his gratitude after hearing the news of his school’s winnings. He said: “I am very proud and honoured. The staff and learners of Hlalelani Primary School would like to thank Cashbuild for their involvement with our community. We are planning to use our building materials voucher to improve our vegetable garden, which feeds most of the students who come from disadvantaged areas.”

Masungulo Primary School’s Principal LS Makondo said: “We are delighted that we have been chosen as one of the winning schools. We have been in need of a store room and a kitchen for a while. With this voucher we will now be able to store and cater for our learners.” At the official Cashbuild Elim store opening ceremony on 25 July, when the building material vouchers totalling 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, Thompho Ragwala from Tshmonela Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
