Limpopo schools benefit from learner creativity

Doors of opportunity will be opened for learners as door handles around school premises in Limpopo will be fixed and learners are given the chance to use school facilities that are up to standard. Among many other upgrades that will be made, classrooms will be painted and leaking roofs will be repaired. Many vital upgrades will be made to eight winning Limpopo schools. Lufule and Tshilivo Primary Schools are two of the schools that will each receive Cashbuild building material vouchers after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On 17 October, 2014, building material vouchers to the value of R96 000 will be handed over to the winners at the Cashbuild Phangami Mall Store Opening Ceremony.

Lufule Primary’s Principle Ms. M.S Ravele said: “I am very happy that my school has won the competition. I can now see that many problems are fixed. The school is in a bad condition. We would like to fix the road from the gate to the classroom as it is quite slippery and the school library which is not up to standard. Our door handles need to be fixed as well.”

Tshilivo Primary School’s Principle Mr. Madhavha said: “I am very happy for this opportunity as our school has been facing many bad conditions after the winter season. We would like to have our leaking roofs fixed and build more book shelves.” 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, Ranwaha Thendo from Tshilivo 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:
