Art-at-Heart
    

Prize winnings sparked by creativity

A tennis court, paving and upgrading sanitary facilities are just a few of the renovations which Okiep, Dr. Izak van Niekerk and Carolusberg Primary Schools have planned for their schools after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. These three and five other schools have each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 each on 26 February 2015 at the Cashbuild Springbok Store Opening Ceremony. Carolusberg Primary School’s Principal Mr. Tobias Cardinal said: “We are very excited and looking forward to the event. We would like to upgrade the rest rooms for the female staff members and repair a few doors on our grounds.”

Dr Izak van Niekerk Primary School’s Principal Mr. G.E. van den Heever said: “The learners are very excited. We are currently building a hall out of our own pocket and it has been quite challenging financially. This opportunity has come at just the right time. We will continue this project by using our building material voucher.” At the official Cashbuild Springbok store opening ceremony on 26 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, Marlow Rutledge from Concordia Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
