Tweefontein schools get a facelift

Some serious repair work on several Tweefontein schools will now be carried out, thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Zamani Primary School, Mapondo Primary School and Hlobisa Primary School are three of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 12 June 2014 at the Cashbuild Tweefontein Store Opening Ceremony. Zamani Primary School’s Principal PJ Masemola said: “We would like to use our Cashbuild voucher to improve the conditions of the school. Some of the problems we would like to address include four shack Grade R classrooms, ceiling repairs and an office administration block.”

Principal MJ Ledwaba from Mapondo Primary School said: “Our school was built in 1982 and is in desperate need of maintenance. We want to build proper flushing toilets for our learners.” Hlobisa Primary School’s Principal MM Malatji said: “Our school is in a very bad condition. We will use our building materials voucher to build a fence around the school, buy new water tanks, replace water pipes and erect new toilets for our learners.”

At the official Cashbuild Tweefontein store opening ceremony on 12 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, Nkosinathi Zulu from Zamani Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
