Talented Butterworth learners win

A fresh coat of paint, doors and new fencing are just a few of the things that schools in Butterworth have planned after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Sophakama and Qoba-Qoba Junior Secondary School and six other lucky Butterworth primary schools each received a building materials voucher worth R12 000 at the Cashbuild Butterworth store opening ceremony on 27 February 2013. Mrs. T Gushman, a post level one teacher at Sophakama Junior Secondary School was very happy with the news of her school’s win. “We would like to use our R12 000 building voucher to purchase a steel gate for our school’s entrance as well as fencing material such as poles, razor wire and net wire to secure the school ground.”

Qoba-Qoba Junior Secondary School’s Technology and English teacher - Mr. Siphelo Ciliwe said: “We would like to renovate the school’s toilets and purchase new doors, windows and paint.”

At the official Cashbuild Butterworth store opening ceremony on 27 February, 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 lucky winner, Siphelele Bheza from Diko Senior Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
