CASHBUILD MAKES A DIFFERENCE TO SCHOOLS IN SOSHANGUVE SOUTH

Eight schools in Soshanguve South, near Pretoria, were the lucky winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. The schools each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000 at the opening ceremony of the new Soshanguve South Cashbuild store on the 25th of July 2018. The principals said that building and general maintenance are the most important priorities for them at the schools.

Reabetswe Primary School, Ayanda Primary School and Thorntree Primary School were three of the eight schools that eceived a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000.

Mr Ntata Kekana, the principal of Reabetswe Primary School says: "We have an unfinished project on the school hall and with this wonderful donation we can finally complete it for the children to use for many different reasons, it's so much extra space. We will use the voucher to buy the cement and building materials to achieve this. Thank you Cashbuild, you really make a difference in our lives."

The principal of Ayanda Primary School, Mr Moshoro Makaleng is thrilled with the news and says: "We will use the voucher to purchase paint as the classrooms and administration blocks are in desperate need of this."

Thorntree Primary School principal, Ms Christina Phakathi says: "We will be paving areas to create foot paths for the learners to walk on as this is just gravel at the moment and gets really muddy when it rains."

At the new Cashbuild store opening ceremony which took place on the 25th of July 2018, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were handed out to the eight winning 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 six 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 judged and presented to a learner from Raohang Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the store.
