UPINGTON SCHOOLS TO BE MADE SAFER

Newly renovated ramps, fence protector and paving were just a few of the concerns voiced by eight principals in the Upington area. Olyvenhoutsdrift, Lukhanyiso and Vooruitsig Primary Schools were just three of the eight schools that won the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. All these schools each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 on 5 November 2015 at the Cashbuild Upington Store Opening Ceremony.

The principal of Olyvenhoutsdrift Primary School, P Van Wyk said they were going to renovate their school ramps so that access is much easier for the learners with disabilities. The principal of Lukhanyiso Primary School, P May added that their school is in need of a fence protector for their garden as birds always find a way to destroy their vegetables.

Vooruitsig Primary School’s principal, I van Rooi said their appreciation goes out to Cashbuild, they would like to do paving around the school. They have a lot of pot holes which are dangerous to the learners.

At the official Cashbuild Upington Store opening ceremony held on the 5th of November 2015, the learners entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances. Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were presented to all eight schools.

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, Merlyn van Wyk from Olyvenhoutsdrift Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
