Tembisa North gets R96 000 from Cashbuild's Art-at-Heart

Thursday Celebrations for Tembisa North Schools
The learners of Sphiwe Primary School will finally have a clean, sheltered area in which to eat their lunch and relax. This is because Mrs Tshokwe,  principal of Sphiwe Primary School, entered her school into the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and the school has won R12 000 worth of Cashbuild building material. Mrs Tshokwe will be using the donation to buy cement and chairs to give the learners a pleasant eating area.

A total of R96 000 was donated to the eight winning schools, who each received R12 000 worth of Cashbuild building materials at the official Tembisa North Cashbuild store opening on Thursday, 30 October 2008.  
Children from each of the schools submitted their best artwork to Cashbuild, which was on display at the Tembisa North store opening, and, more importantly, will be in the Tembisa North store for the next five years. The best art work from the eight schools was judged and each school had three winners who each received Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates. The manager’s choice award, which is the lucky overall winner of the artwork competition, was announced on the day and this lucky learner was Mbau Sibisi from Isekelo Primary School who received a R500 stationery voucher and a glass trophy.
