Thaba 'Nchu schools get a facelift

Work on Thaba 'Nchu schools will now be carried out, thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Mokwena Primary school and Dawiesville Primary School are two of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 6 March 2014 at the Cashbuild Thaba 'Nchu Store Opening Ceremony. Mokwena Primary school’s HOD - Mr. KC Ratsiu said: “We are thinking of paving the school grounds as best we can. Every Wednesday the school hosts a sport day and when it rains, the ground becomes muddy and the learners are unable to play.”

Principal FM Marumo from Dawiesville Primary School was very happy with the news of her school’s win. She said: “We would like to paint the outside of the school and fix the broken windows and doors that cannot lock. Thereafter, we would like to conduct general maintenance at the school.” At the official Cashbuild Thaba 'Nchu store opening ceremony on 6 March, 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, Makau Letebele from Ereskuld Intermediate School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
