Since the Art-at-Heart campaign was launched 16 years ago, Cashbuild has helped more than 2200 schools in Southern Africa with over R26-million worth of building materials.


Ennerdale learners show their love for art

This Valentine’s Day, the hearts of all the learners from Spectrum, Fine Town Primary School and six other Ennerdale schools were filled with love after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On this day each of the schools received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R12 000 at the Cashbuild Ennerdale Store Opening Ceremony. Principal TR Mafamba from Spectrum Primary School said: “We have decided to use our Cashbuild voucher to purchase paint and toilet equipment to fix seven toilets at the school.”

Fine Town Primary School’s Principal Michael Macfarlane said: "We would like to extend the school’s car park because we have a shortage of parking. Another project we would like to tackle is the erection of a school shelter where learners can peacefully sit down and enjoy the meals from the school’s feeding scheme."

At the official Cashbuild Ennerdale store opening ceremony on 14 February, 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 lucky winner, Kgomotso Mashego from Odin Park Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The schools and children that benefited from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart donations were:
