Celebrating Madibaís birthday with Art-at-Heart

Art-at-HeartThis Mandela Day, the hearts of learners from Tshepisong, Khaselihle and Silverfields Primary Schools as well as five other local schools will be bubbling with bliss after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On this day each of the schools will receive a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R12 000 at the Cashbuild Ontdekkers Store Opening Ceremony.
Principal Walter Tlapti from Tshepisong Primary School was excited about his school’s winnings. He said: “We are planning to purchase building material at Cashbuild to build new classroom furniture, such as desks, chairs and tables for the learners.”

Principal Vusumzi Rajuile from Khaselihle Primary School said: “The number of learners at the school has grown significantly over the years. We would like to create a bigger playing area for the learners to socialise and practice netball or soccer.”          

Principal Marlen Degenaar from Silverfields Primary School said: “After 35 years the condition of the school has deteriorated. We would like to replace the soccer field nets, the cracked toilets and the broken tiles. We would also like to erect a cover over the netball field seating and replace the rusted cricket nets.”

At the official Cashbuild Ontdekkers store opening ceremony which took place on 18 July, building material vouchers totaling R96 000 will be presented to all eight schools, the children will entertain 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 will be judged and three student winners from each of the winning schools will be named. Winners will receive Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates for first, second and third place respectively. The Manager’s Choice award will also be presented to the lucky winner of the artwork competition. This award will be announced on the day and the winner will receive a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
