Moloto schools can cook again

The lack of a proper kitchen and cooking utensils at both Moloto and Musi Primary Schools in Moloto has proved very difficult. However, the good news is that the schools can now build brand new kitchens after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On 29 August 2013, eight winning Moloto schools each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher to the value of R12 000 at the Cashbuild Moloto Store Opening Ceremony. Principal NT Motau from Moloto Primary School said: “We are planning to build a kitchen because we currently make use of the staff room for cooking.”

Musi Primary School’s Principal Michael Mahlobogoane was excited about his school’s win. He said: “We are currently using a condensed room where we cook for our learners but now we will have a brand new kitchen at the school.” At the official Cashbuild Moloto store opening ceremony on 29 August, when the building materials 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 lucky winner, Isaac Sibiya from Moloto Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
