CASHBUILD HELPS UPLIFT EIGHT SCHOOLS IN LANSDOWNE

Cashbuild Art at Heart Event Lansdowne 2019 Eight schools in Lansdowne, Western Cape, 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. The vouchers were handed out at the opening ceremony of the new Cashbuild Lansdowne Corner store on the 21 st of February 2019. Enhancing security and buying tools to upgrade and maintain the school grounds are some of the items needed to uplift schools in the area.

Voorspoed Primary School, Athwood Primary School and Newfields Primary School were just three of the eight schools that each received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Voorspoed Primary School 's principal, Mr Esau said: "We are going to use the voucher to purchase paint and ceiling boards. Many of the classrooms have not been maintained for many years and we need to replace some of the ceilings and repaint classroom and cloakroom walls. Thank you Cashbuild for this wonderful donation."

Ms D Mahlangu, the principal of Sediba sa thuto Primary School, will be using the Cashbuild voucher to buy materials that will help start the building of a brand new kitchen and store room. "We currently serve two meals a day to 1880 learners, so not having a proper kitchen or store room for the food items is proving to be challenging. We are so blessed with this voucher as it will take a lot of worry away from us in assisting our children."

Mr Petersen, the principal of Athwood Primary School expressed that the school will be able to purchase tools for the caretakers to maintain the broken hinges and locks on the classroom doors. He said: "Hopefully we will have enough to improve our security as well because this is a huge problem in our area and we need to keep our learners safe."

The principal of Newfields Primary School echoed Mr Esau's comment by saying that maintenance is the biggest concern as this makes a great difference for the learners if the facilities are in a good condition.

At the opening ceremony of the new Cashbuild Lansdowne Corner which took place on the 21 st of February 2019, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were handed out to the eight winning schools, the children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dancing and theatrical performances.

The Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition entails learners from each school to submit their best artwork to Cashbuild. This artwork is displayed at the ceremony, and 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 was awarded to a learner from Blomvlei Primary Schoolstrong> who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winning learner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the new store.
