Molepolole gets P96 000 from Cashbuild's Art-at-Heart

Magokotswane Primary School learners will be ecstatic when they found out they will no longer be taught under a tree in boiling hot conditions. Most of the learners are taught in small and overcrowded classrooms; they have been sharing the cramped space for too long and the school have a total of 786 learners’ enrolled and only have 16 classrooms. Magokotswane Primary School is one of the eight lucky schools that each received a Cashbuild building material donation to the value of 12 000 pula as part of the Art-at-Heart competition. Magokotswane plans to use the donation to build an extra classroom.

Magokotswane Primary School Principal, Sethunya Segadimo was pleased to find out the school had won the building material donation from Cashbuild. “The learners have been taught in extremely cramped conditions, with no ventilation, which is not ideal for learning, legroom was limited to the point that other learners had to be taught under a tree and the heat became unbearable on extremely scorching days, the learners found it hard to concentrate,” exclaimed Ms Segadimo.

The donation of building materials to the value of 96 000 pula were presented by Cashbuild to the eight schools at the Molepolole store opening ceremony on 24 September 2009. At the opening, the school children showed their appreciation by entertaining everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances.

Learners from each school submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild. The artwork was displayed at the Molepolole opening ceremony, and will remain on display for the next five years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. The winning children received a Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificate for first, second and third place respectively. The manager’s choice award was also presented to the lucky overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day – Tsheketletso Tsheketletso from Neale Sechele Primary School received a stationery voucher and a glass trophy.
