Ulundi schools gets a fresh perceptive

Delayed Ulundi school projects will now be completed thanks to the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Ulusda Christian School and Thengisangaye Primary School are just two of the eight schools that each won Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R12 000 on 19 March 2014 at the Cashbuild Ulundi Store Opening Ceremony.

Ulusda Christian School’s Principal ZH Ntombela said: “We are currently teaching in a church building in a rural area. We would like to use our voucher to build new classrooms.” Principal M Sikhosana from Thengisangaye Primary School said: “We would like to use our building material voucher to build a new school hall and a security guard shelter at the school’s entrance.”

At the official Cashbuild Ulundi store opening ceremony on 19 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 overall winner, Shandu Siphumuzo from Godlumkhonto Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
