Cashbuild paves the way to a brighter future for Meadowlands schools

Cashbuild is making it possible for eight Meadowlands schools to build some positive changes and create better spaces in which the community’s children will learn in the future. Emelang and Julias Sebolai Primary Schools are two of the eight schools that entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. As a result, the schools have each received a R12 000 Cashbuild building material voucher which was presented to them when the Cashbuild Meadowlands store officially opened on Friday, 28 November.

Emelang Primary’s Principal, Mr. Kungwane said: “We are feeling great about the project. This initiative plays an important role in many underprivileged schools and has a great impact. We are going to use the prize to upgrade our Grade R area with new paving.” Julias Sebolai Primary’s Principal Mrs. Sekobo said: “We are very happy and are grateful that we have received the opportunity to upgrade our school with decent structures”.

At the official Cashbuild Meadowlands store opening ceremony on the 28th November, 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 overall winner, Thendo Mudau from Tsumbedzo Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
