PUTTING LEARNER CREATIVITY TO GOOD USE

Newly fixed door handles, upgraded pavements and new bathrooms are just a few of the things needed by school principals in the Lephalale area. Nelsonskop, Bakgalaka and Iketseng Primary Schools are just three of the seven schools that have won the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 on the 24th of June 2015 at the Cashbuild Lephalale Store Opening Ceremony. Nelsonskop Primary Schoolís Principal M Kekana said, while thanking Cashbuild, this came at the right time. They have a shortage of door handles at the moment, learners are often rough with them and they break easily, the Cashbuild voucher will go a long way.

Bakgalaka Primary Schoolís Principal K Kwanaite said their learners were clapping, dancing with pride, they were very excited. Their school pavement is not renovated and it causes the wall bricks to fall, they have decided to upgrade it with the voucher that they received from Cashbuild. At the official Cashbuild Lephalale Store Opening Ceremony held on the 24th of June 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R105 000 were presented to all seven 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 Managerís Choice award was also presented to the overall winner, Charles Shiko from Shongoane Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
