IMPROVING THE LEARNING CONDITIONS OF STEILLOOP SCHOOLS

Eight schools in the Steilloop area were chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. They each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000 at the Cashbuild Steilloop Store Opening Ceremony held on the 10th of September 2015. A book case, the fixing up of a store room and the replacement of broken windows, doors and a school fence are just some of the things on the maintenance lists of the school principals. 

Tlhako, Ramashilo and Masebe Primary Schools were three of the eight chosen schools that each received a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000. Tlhako Primary School’s principal, N F Maleka said they were all still very amazed by these good news from Cashbuild, they want to start by completing their built-in book case as all their books are lying around and they end up losing them.

M Seabi, principal of Ramashilo Primary School said, Halala! That is all he could say!  The learners were filled with joy in their eyes. They are going to fix their store room so that the schools’ valuables are safer.

At the official Cashbuild Steilloop Store opening ceremony held on the 10th of September 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools.

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 overall winner, Thabo Tlhako from Tlhako Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
