Randfontein Art-at-Heart winners improve their schools

Eight Randfontein schools will soon cross off a few things from their wish lists after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Mohlakeng and Hartzstraat Primary School are two of the schools that each received R12 000 Cashbuild building materials vouchers. On 16 April 2014, building material vouchers to the value of R96 000 were handed over to the winners at the Cashbuild Randfontein Store Opening Ceremony. Mohlakeng Primary School’s Principal HM Modise said: “Our school is in a good structural condition considering that it is 47 years old. However, the school’s ablution facilities are in need of repair. We would like to fix the leaking pipes in the learners’ toilets.”

Hartzstraat Primary School Principal MC Dick said: “We would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to repair broken floors, replace broken toilet pots and sinks as well as to pave the school ground.”

At the official Cashbuild Randfontein store opening ceremony on 16 April, 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, Tshepo Mashilo from Mohlakeng Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
