CASHBUILD GIVES BACK TO SILVERTONDALE SCHOOLS

At the Cashbuild Silvertondale Store Opening Ceremony held on the 23rd of September 2015, eight Silvertondale schools were each awarded with a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000. All these schools were chosen as winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart Competition. Among other repairs and refurbishment plans, the Silvertondale schools will use their Cashbuild vouchers to rebuild a school garage, repair the school pavilion as well as lay down a bit of paving.

Three of the eight lucky schools were Lindopark Primary School, Norridge Park Primary School and Laerskool Derdepoort. J van Reenen, the principal of Lindopark primary school said the Cashbuild voucher came at the right time, their school is in need of an extended pavilion, and they are going to purchase as much material as they can to build the pavilion. The principal of Norridge Park primary school, M Mpshe said they are very grateful to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Their school is going to purchase stainless steel garage roofing material as well as some paving material. At the official Cashbuild Silvertondale Store opening ceremony held on the 23rd of September 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools.

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, Kgothatso Charity Skhosana from Agnes Chidi Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
