Creative artwork breathes new life into Kabokweni schools

Livelethu, Emtfonjeni and Enkhokhokhweni Primary School are three of the eight schools in Kabokweni that will each receive much needed facelifts. 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 Kabokweni Store Opening Ceremony. Principal TS Sengwayo from Livelethu Primary School was very happy with the news of her school’s win. She said: “Our school is very much in need of this help. We have planned to do so many projects at the school and would now like to build a fence around the soon-to-be created vegetable garden that the learners will take care of.”

Emtfonjeni Primary School’s Principal TM Mndawe said: “We have discussed building a library for our learners because they are currently making use of the public library and have to walk very far to get there. This voucher has come at just the right time.” Principal DA Madonsela from Enkhokhokhweni Primary School said: “We would like to pave the entrance at the school gate as well as the school’s assembly area. As soon as we have completed that project, we would like to urgently fence the school with palisade.”

At the official Cashbuild Kabokweni store opening ceremony on 24 October, when the building material vouchers totaling R96 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, Lerato Nkosi from Emtfonjeni Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
