Artwork breathes new life into Jouberton schools

Tiang and Goue Arend Primary School are just two Jouberton schools that have each received much needed make-overs. These schools, along with five others each received Cashbuild building materials to the value of R12 000 each and were presented with their vouchers on 24 October 2013 at the Cashbuild Jouberton Store Opening Ceremony. Deputy Principal RE Jackson from Goue Arend Primary School was excited about the plans for using her school’s winnings. She said: “In the past, we have noticed the bad effects of not having proper shelter at the school. In winter, learners had to wait for their transport in the pouring rain and in summer they had to wait in the scorching sun. We would like to give back to them by installing their very own carport.”

Tiang public school’s Principal NT Mashiqa said: “We are so proud of our learners. We would like to give back to them by creating a playground for grade R learners. When we have successfully completed the playground, we would like to build a storage room with palisade.”

At the official Cashbuild Jouberton store opening ceremony on 24 October, when the building material vouchers totaling R84 000 were presented to all seven 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, Marcelle Du Plooy from Meiringspark Laerskool for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
