Serowe Central schools get a facelift

Work on Serowe Central schools will now be carried out, thanks to Cashbuild. Learners from each school submitted artwork to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and won for their schools. Makolo Primary School and Newtown Primary School are two of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of P12 000 on 3 April 2014 at the Cashbuild Serowe Central Store Opening Ceremony. Mr O B Motheo, a teacher at Makolo Primary School said: “The school has had problems because of the shortage of toilets. We would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to erect new toilets for our learners.”

Newtown Primary School’s Deputy Principal P K Lesole said: “For the longest time, the school has been using the store room as a library and we think it is time that we build a proper library for our learners. We are planning to visit Cashbuild and purchase building materials for this project.”

At the official Cashbuild Serowe Central store opening ceremony on 3 April, when the building material vouchers totaling P96 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, Pako Selela from Adelaide Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
