IMPROVEMENTS TO PONGOLA SCHOOLS

Eight Schools in the Pongola area were chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. They each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000 at the Cashbuild Pongola Store Opening Ceremony held on the 5th of November 2015. The voucher was presented to the schools so that they may carry out repairs, maintenance and upgrades at the school facilities.

Tholulwazi, Thembokuhle and Siyaziqeqesha Primary Schools were three of the eight winning schools in Pongola. The Principal of Tholulwazi Primary School, W Z Sibeko said, while thanking the Lord, that they are so happy. They would like to replace some of their doors, get a new gate and paint the exterior of the school. The Principal of Thembokuhle Primary School added that this was good, they are proud of their learners. They currently use pit toilets as their toilets were destroyed by a storm in 2014. The Cashbuild voucher will help them to rebuild their toilets, they are very thankful.

R Phakathi, the principal of Siyaziqeqesha Primary School said they were so excited, their school playground has a lot of bumps so they are going to pave it so that it will be safer for their learners.

At the official Cashbuild Pongola store opening ceremony held on the 5th of November 2015, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 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, Wandile Mngomezulu from Masithokoze Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
