Isiziba Primary’s Multi Sports Court clean up

Isiziba Primary’s multi sports court will soon become a safe and clean sports facility that learners will enjoy to the fullest thanks to consumer champion, Cashbuild. Until now, the court has flooded with water and soil during the winter, making it not only muddy and water logged, but potentially dangerous. Isibiza recently entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and was one of eight lucky schools in Tembisa Plaza that received R12 000 worth of building materials. This prize will go towards making the sports facility safe and functional. A new wall will be erected around the facility to prevent water and soil entering the area. Learners will thus soon enjoy playing tennis and netball at break times.

Mrs Thuli Mbhalati, Principle of Isiziba Primary explains: “Now that we can build this wall, it means that the learners will have a proper court to play on and also, they won’t have to spend several hours cleaning it before they use it. We are so appreciative of this voucher. Thank you Cashbuild.”

The total donation of building materials to the value of R96 000 was presented to the eight winning schools at the Tembisa Plaza store opening ceremony on 29 October 2010. At the opening, the school children showed their appreciation by entertaining everyone with cultural dances, theatrical performances and traditional singing.

Learners from each school submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild. This artwork was displayed at the Tembisa Plaza opening ceremony, and will remain on display at the Cashbuild store for the next five years.

Artwork was judged and three winners from each school were named. The winning children 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 of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day – Sabelo Nyabane from Nyiko Primary School received a R500 stationery voucher and a glass trophy.

At the store opening event there was a lucky draw and one lucky school walked away with a solar geyser and free installation. This prize could ensure that the winning school has hot water regardless of the lack of resources within their community.
