Putting learner creativity to good use

Sanitary facilities, unfinished Grade R classrooms and leaking ceilings are just a few of the concerns voiced by eight principals in the Mthatha East area. Jonguhlanga, Sigubudu and Lucingweni Junior Secondary Schools are just three of the eight schools which have each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 11 February 2015 at the Cashbuild Mthatha East Store Opening Ceremony. Tamsanqa Junior Secondary School’s Principal Mr. Zukile Qambele said: “We are so thankful and grateful to be one of the chosen winning schools. There are many things which need to be done in and around the school, and we are now given the opportunity to start tackling it.”

Umtata Community Junior Secondary School’s Principal Ms. Luleka Mhlomtlo said: “We love participating in drama, music and dance activities. We are very glad that the overall competition winner came from our school. We’d like to fix our floors and tile as the tiles are broken at the moment. We would also like to paint and cement our leaking ceilings.” At the official Cashbuild Mthatha East store opening ceremony on 11 February, 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, Sibabalwe Zide from Umtata Community Junior Secondary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The schools and children that benefited from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart donations were:
