Artwork breathes new life into Tsakane schools

Delayed Tsakane Corner school projects will now be completed thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Duduza, Emzimkhulu and Sibonisiwe Primary Schools are three of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 5 June 2014 at the Cashbuild Tsakane Corner Store Opening Ceremony. Duduza Primary School’s Principal MN Zulu said: “Our school is very old. It was one of the first built in 1965 and needs a lot of attention. This is why we would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to repair the floors in the corridors and build a shelter for the security patrollers.”

Brenda Khoza, Emzimkhulu Primary School’s Administrator said: “The school’s kitchen is not in a good order. It does not have cupboards, the walls are not painted and the floor is not tiled. We would like to use our R12 000 voucher to renovate the kitchen.” Sibonisiwe Primary School’s Principal TM Buzi was one of the first staff members at the school in 1977. She said: “The school has not had any renovations since its establishment 37 years ago. Our first priority after winning the Art-at-Heart competition is to repair the leaking toilets by replacing the pipes.”

At the official Cashbuild Tsakane Corner store opening ceremony on 5 June, 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, Sibongile Shabangu from Emzimkhulu Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
