Mandela month brings building vouchers to Moratiwa schools

Children at eight schools in the Moratiwa area can now look forward to learning in a better environment after their schools won the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Areikhuleng, Mogalatlapi and Kopjeng Primary School are three of the eight schools that have each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 24 July 2014 at the Cashbuild Moratiwa Store Opening Ceremony. Ms. MR Malatjie, Principal of Areikhuleng Primary School said: “I don’t know how to express how I feel about this great opportunity we have been given by Cashbuild.

On behalf of the staff and learners, we would like to thank you Cashbuild for promoting and supporting a healthy learning environment. We would like to use our building material voucher to repair existing classrooms.”

Kopjange Primary School’s Principal, Ms. HR Phakwago said: “Thank you Cashbuild. We will now build and replace toilets at our school to allow our children to access clean sanitation facilities.” Mr. MP Chego, Principal of Mogalatlapi Primary School said: “We are over the moon. We are planning to replace broken windows to try and provide warmer classrooms for our learners.” At the official Cashbuild Moratiwe store opening ceremony on 24 July, 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, Lebogang Rampedi from Onane Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
