A FACELIFT FOR GRAHAMSTOWN SCHOOLS

Guttering, a fresh coat of paint and basic maintenance were just a few of the important repairs that eight Grahamstown school principals have planned for their schools after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. These eight schools each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 on the 19th of November 2015 at the Cashbuild Grahamstown Store Opening Ceremony.

The principal of George Dickerson Primary School, M Meiring said they will need just the basic maintenance around the school but the main thing is that their gutters have worn out so they will need to replace them.

The deputy principal of Ntaba Maria Primary School, S Babu, added that their school is very old and to give it a bit of a facelift, they will paint the entire school.

The principal of Oatlands Preparatory School, R De La Mare said they are very grateful, every little bit helps. They are going to keep the Cashbuild voucher for basic maintenance that may arise in future.

At the official Cashbuild Grahamstown Store opening ceremony held on the 19th of November 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools.

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 overall winner, Michaela Ferndale from George Dickerson Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
