Soshanguve Thorntree gets R96 000 from Cashbuild's Art-at-Heart

Reabetswe Primary School plans to build a school hall for assemblies and prize giving ceremonies. Currently, the children gather outside. Extreme temperatures and rain, however, have necessitated that the events be cancelled.

The new school hall is now a reality because Reabetswe Primary entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and is one of eight lucky schools in the Soshanguve Thorntree area that each received a Cashbuild building material donation to the value of R12 000 as part of the Art-at-Heart competition.

“There is already a plan in place and the school’s governing body is in regular meetings with the Municipality in the area to get the project going as soon as possible”, said Ntata Kekana, Principal of Reabetswe Primary.

“When the new building has been erected, it will accommodate up to 1000 learners and they will no longer be left out in the cold”, added Mr Kekana.

The donation of building materials to the value of R 96 000 was presented by Cashbuild to the eight schools at the Soshanguve Thorntree store opening ceremony on 29 October 2009. At the opening, the school children showed their appreciation by entertaining everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances.

Learners from each school submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild. The artwork was displayed at the Soshanguve Thorntree opening ceremony, and will remain on display for the next five years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. The winning children 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 lucky overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day – Boipelo Malewa from Lesedi Primary School received a stationery voucher and a glass trophy.
