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.

New classrooms for Ganyesa schools

The foremost concern for the principals at Ganyesa schools is the over population of classrooms.  Many of the classrooms at these schools house up to 70 learners at once. This is why Kegakilwe, Tshanake, Mochware Primary Schools have decided to build new classrooms from their winnings. Each of the these schools, along with seven others in the Ganyesa area will receive Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 each on 21 June 2012 at the Cashbuild Ganyesa Store Opening Ceremony.

Principal Mr. MJ Lebatlwe from Kegakilwe Primary School said: “We would like to erect another classroom for our grade R learners. At the moment they do not have a class, 118 learners rotate and use the classroom at different times of the day.”

Principal Ms. Selebogo Mahura from Tshanake Primary school was very excited to hear that her school is one of the winning schools. She said “We would like to build a classroom for our learners. At the moment they make use of a mobile class room and it is proves too cold for them to learn it in.”

Principal Enock Mafura from Mochware Primary School said: “We have a shortage of classrooms at our school. We have 70 grade 4 learners in one classroom for lessons and it is becoming a problem.”

At the official Cashbuild Ganyesa store opening ceremony on 21 June, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all ten 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, Itekeng Monyatsi from Kegakilwe Primary School, for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
