Rustenburg schools get a facelift

Serious maintenance work on Rustenburg schools will now be carried out, thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Zinniaville Secondary School and Laerskool Rustenburg Noord Primary School are two of the eight schools that were each presented with Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 12 June 2014 at the Cashbuild Rustenburg Store Opening Ceremony. Zinniaville Secondary School’s Principal S Abdull, said: “Our school is 40 years old and in desperate need of maintenance. We would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to paint the school and jungle gyms, repair the roof and conduct general maintenance.”

Laerskool Rustenburg Noord Primary School’s Principal K Van Der Walt said: “Our school has 1346 learners and falls under the Department of Education’s Nutritional Programme. Under normal circumstances, the school prepares meals for over 100 learners per day. Since the strikes in Rustenburg have continued, the number has increased dramatically and the school has run out of seating in the lunch area. We would like to use our voucher from Cashbuild to increase the number of permanent tables and chairs available for learners to enjoy meals at the school.”

At the official Cashbuild Rustenburg store opening ceremony on 12 June, 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, Realeboga Nameng from Zinniaville Secondary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
