Learner creativity for school development

Excitement fills the air as eight schools in the Gauteng area may now look forward to learning in a better enviroPronment after their schools will win the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Klipvalley and Lufhereng Primary Schools are two of the eight schools that will each receive Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 28 October 2014 at the Cashbuild Protea Glen Store Opening Ceremony.

Mrs. Nelly Mbatha, Principal of Lufhereng Primary School said: “We appreciate the opportunity and are glad that the potential and talent of our learners has been shown through the competition. We would like to use the voucher to purchase more partitions which we will put up in order to divide classrooms.” Klipvalley Primary School’s Principal, Mrs. Kgomotso Dladla said: “We are very happy and feel honoured to be part of something this great. Our learners now feel more confident and capable, not just academically but when it comes to creativity as well. We would like to fix our classroom doors.” At the official Cashbuild Protea Glen store opening ceremony on 28 October, when the 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 winners from each school 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 overall 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.
