King Williams Town Schools Get Upgraded

Eight lucky schools in King Williams Town were chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. These schools were all presented with Cashbuild building material vouchers worth R15 000 at the Art-at-Heart Store Opening Ceremony held on the 14th of May 2015. Extending classrooms, tiling and painting are some of the improvements that the school principals said the vouchers will be used for.

Siyaqala Primary School and Ndileka Primary School were only two of the eight schools who received the Cashbuild vouchers. Ms Mgwedla, the principal of Siyaqala Primary School said that her learners were very excited and they cannot wait to start painting and tiling their school. Mrs Yeko, principal of Ndileka Primary School added that their school needed improvements, they will start extending their classrooms immediately.

At the official Cashbuild King Williams Town Store opening ceremony on the 14th of May 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, Amor Boswell from Schornville Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The schools and children that benefited from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart donations were:
