Improved facilities for Lusikisiki schools

Schools in the Lusikisiki area are looking forward to upgrading their school grounds and facilities by using their winnings from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Siyazama Senior Primary, Konjwayo Senior Primary and Kovoto Junior Secondary Primary Schools are just three of the seven schools that will each receive Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 12 February 2015 at the Cashbuild Lusikisiki Store Opening Ceremony.

Tyongwana Senior Primary School’s Principal Miss Thandeka Tshwili said: “We would like to use our voucher to build a kitchen as we do not have one at the moment. We would also like to upgrade our classrooms. At the moment Grades four and five are combined as we do not have enough room to separate the two.” Ndwalana Senior Primary School’s Principal Mr M. Vukaphi: “We are very excited and are looking forward to the Art-at-Heart event. We’d like to fix our doors and door frames, floors, windows and paint the inside and outside of our school.”

At the official Cashbuild Lusikisiki store opening ceremony on 12 February, 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 overall winner, Ndodana Esethu from Tyongwana Senior Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
