Mtubatuba schools get much needed repairs

Repairs to Mtubatuba school ceilings, classrooms and security gates will now be completed thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Nsabalele Primary School, Mzabalazo Primary School and Msiziwamakristu Primary School are three of the eight schools that entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart Competition and won building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 29 May 2014 at the Cashbuild Mtubatuba Store Opening Ceremony. Nsabalele Primary School’s Principal K.H.W Mhlungu said: “We are so thankful to Cashbuild for choosing us as one of the winners. We can use the donation to repaint the classrooms and repair the ceiling boards.”

Mzabalazo Primary School’s Principal G.T.E Myeza said: “The school is not in a good condition. We have 18 classrooms at the school that leak during the rainy season and this interrupts lessons. We would like to repair the cracked asbestos roofs so that we avoid shifting the learners to parts of the school where there are no leakages.”

Principal M.J Ngubane from Msiziwamakristu Primary School said: “We would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to paint the school and to beef up the security at the school.” At the official Cashbuild Mtubatuba store opening ceremony on 29 May, 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, Mdletshe Nkosinathi from Ingaqa Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
