FACILITY UPGRADES TO ACCOMMODATE THE SEASONS FOR TSHEPISO SCHOOLS

Schools in the Tshepiso area are looking forward to upgrading their school grounds and facilities when they use their winnings in the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Tsoelopele, Tsoaranang and Vukuzakhe Primary Schools are just three of the eight schools that each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 at the Cashbuild Tshepiso Store Opening Ceremony held on the 1st of March 2016.

Tsoelopele Primary School’s Principal N Edwana said, on behalf of his learners and members of staff, he was very grateful. It was not easy to raise funds. They would like to build a shelter for the learners’ eating area. They currently eat outside where there is no protection against the sun in summer or the rain in winter.

Tsoaranang Primary School’s Principal M Sofe said they are over the moon and have quite a lot of facility issues to address. To give the school a bit of a facelift, they will focus on the rusted and worn out paint around the school and then take it from there. C Mofokeng, the Principal of Vukuzakhe Primary School joyfully added, Fantastic! Very thoughtful of Cashbuild. They would like to pave the school assembly area so they can make it less dusty in summer and less muddy in winter.

At the official Cashbuild Tshepiso store opening ceremony held on the 1st of March 2016, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 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 six 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, Thapelo Rabi from Tsoelopele Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
