Cashbuild invests in Shoshanguve schools

Cashbuild is making it possible for eight Shoshanguve schools to build some positive changes and create better spaces in which the community’s children will learn in the future. Ayanda and Refitlhilepele Primary Schools are two of the eight schools that entered the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. As a result, the schools have each received a R12 000 Cashbuild building material voucher that was presented to them when the Cashbuild Shoshanguve Thorntree store officially opened on Friday, 14 November.

Refitlhilepele Primary’s Principal, Mr. Titus said: “We are feeling great about the project and we appreciate Cashbuild for giving back to the community.” Ayanda Primary would like to convert one of their classrooms into a kitchen. Ayanda Primary’s Principal Mr. Manopi said: “Our learners need to be fed as they are underprivileged. We have therefore been feeding them so that they are able to concentrate during class. We have been cooking from an old, small classroom and we now have the opportunity to upgrade it to our very own kitchen which is much needed”. At the official Cashbuild Shoshanguve store opening ceremony on 14th November, 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 overall winner, Thabang Tobotsane from Ayanda Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
