CASHBUILD ASSISTS 8 SCHOOLS IN GANYESA

Eight schools in Ganyesa, North West, were the lucky winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. The schools each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000 at the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Ganyesa store that took place on the 6th of September 2018. Painting, erecting toilets and repairing damaged ceilings were of high priority for some of the eight winning schools.

Ganyesa Primary School, Moswana Primary School and Mochware Primary School were three of the eight schools that each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000.

Mr L Mafura, the principal from Mochware Primary School, expressed delight in saying: "With the help of the school board and community, we started a project of building a new classroom. We unfortunately had to put that on hold due to funds, but now, with this wonderful voucher, we can get going again."

The principal of Moswana Primary School, Ms G Assegaai, was just as happy and grateful to have been selected as a winning school: "A large part of our school was burnt and now we only have a few classrooms in which to house the learners. These classrooms are very cold and wet due to the broken ceilings, so the rain and cold filters through. It is not nice for the children to be cold and wet, so the first thing that we are going to do is fix the ceilings and then we will see if we can do some painting."

Principal of Ganyesa Primary School, Ms D Masipa, is so grateful to Cashbuild and cannot thank them enough for making her school, and the children, part of this great competition. "Our main project is to install toilets for the foundation phase children as they are currently sharing toilets with the older children on the other side of the school. It will make it easier to have toilets for them that are closer."

At the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Ganyesa store, that took place on the 6th of September 2018, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were handed out to the eight winning 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 six 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 judged and presented to a learner from Monnaphang Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the store.
