Artistic Ezulwini learners help improve schools

A new security shelter and a lunch room are just a few of the things that Ezulwini Valley and Baha’i Primary School in Ezulwini have planned after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On 21 November 2013, eight winning Ezulwini schools each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher to the value of E12 000 at the Cashbuild Ezulwini Store Opening Ceremony. Principal SN Dlamini from Ezulwini Valley Primary School was very thankful to Cashbuild. She said: “Our school was built in 1911 and is in desperate need of maintenance. We would also like to thank the school security guards by building a shelter for them.”

Baha’I Primary School’s Principal Lindiwe Maseko said: “Our learners currently do not have a place to sit down and enjoy their lunch. We would like to dedicate a part of the school that they could call their own.”

At the official Cashbuild Ezulwini store opening ceremony on 21 November, when the building materialsvouchers totaling E96 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, Ntokozo Shongwe from Ezulwini Valley Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
