STANDERTON SCHOOLS WILL SOON BE LOOKING GOOD

At the Cashbuild Standerton Store Opening Ceremony held on the 10th of March 2016, eight Standerton schools each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000. All these schools were chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Adding wood, painting and a few general facelifts were just some of the improvements that the schools plan when using their Cashbuild vouchers.

Principal G Maritz of Laerskool Jeugkrag said their learners were very happy and looked forward to showing their appreciation to Cashbuild. To improve the appearance of the school grounds, the school’s fence is in need of rust removal as well as parasite spray painting. Mr C van Vuuren, Principal of Standerton Primary School added that they have a cricket and general pavilion that they want to add wood to as well as painting to give them a bit of a facelift.

The Principal of Retsebile Primary School, T Khambule said they are happy and appreciate the recognition from Cashbuild. Their school has never been refurbished so they will paint it all round so that they can make it more pleasant to the eye.

At the official Cashbuild Standerton store opening ceremony held on the 10th of March 2016, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 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 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 also presented to the overall winner, Minenhle Makhubu from Laerskool Jeugkrag. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
