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.


Renovations at Evaton schools

A netball pitch, new ceilings and multipurpose sports facilities are just a few of the things on the wish list of schools in the Evaton area.  Itsebeng, Thabeng and Tsokolibane Primary School are three of the eight schools that each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 18 October 2012 at the Cashbuild Evaton Store Opening Ceremony.

Principal Rachel Raborifi from Itsebeng Primary School was very grateful to Cashbuild. She said: “The educator who was involved with the Art-At-Heart competition would like to use the voucher to improve the art and culture classroom.”

Principal Thembekile Lethoba from Tsokolibane Primary School said: “There are so many projects that we can do at the school such as fixing old doors and windows and painting the classrooms and toilets.”

Deputy Principal NM Bocsoere from Thabeng Primary School was very excited. She said: “We would like to fix the broken doors and paint the administration building and the school’s feeding scheme.”

At the official Cashbuild Evaton store opening ceremony on 18 October, 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, Hope Khoadi from Botlehadi Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
