MTHATHA CENTRAL SCHOOLS MADE SAFE

Various renovations at Mthatha Central schools will be carried out in the next few weeks, thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Efata School for the Blind and Deaf and Rainy Junior Secondary School were only two of the eight winning schools that each received a Cashbuild Building materials voucher worth R15 000, on the 28th of May 2015 at the Cashbuild Mthatha Central Store Opening Ceremony.
Mrs Nqolo, principal of Efata School for the Blind and Deaf said that having an unfenced yard has always made them concerned about the safety of their learners so they have decided to use the voucher to buy a fence for the school yard and make their learners feel safer while at school. Mrs Gqoboka, principal of Rainy Junior Secondary School continued and said that they were very grateful to Cashbuild for winning and they were going to get a brand new water tank, new pipes and replace a few broken windows, which will make us feel safer.

At the official Cashbuild Mthatha Central Store opening ceremony held on the 28th of May 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools. 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 Managerís Choice award was also presented to the overall winner, Mbasa Ncetani from Mamfengwini Junior Secondary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
