A BETTER FUTURE FROM CASHBUILD FOR VOSLOORUS SCHOOLS

Eight schools in Vosloorus, Gauteng were the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. The schools each won a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000. These vouchers were handed out at the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Vosloorus store on the 5th of December 2018. The principals of three of the eight schools are going to spend the vouchers on general maintenance and repairs before the new year.

Polokegong Primary School, Rebontsheng Primary School and Kutloanong Primary School were just three of the eight schools that each received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Polokegong Primary School's principal, Mr Ndlebe will be using the voucher to purchase paint and tiles to refurbish classes. "We are hoping to finish this before the new year starts, to provide the children with better facilities."

Mrs Dorah, the principal of Rebontsheng Primary School said: "Wow, thanks very much Cashbuild for the donation, we need it to help us with purchasing of tiles, building materials, toilets, taps and doors. I am so proud of the learners for winning this great prize."

The principal from Kutloanong Primary School, Mr Twala is going to build walls and renovate the kitchen area. "We need to buy bricks, cement and general building materials to make this possible," he said

At the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Vosloorus store which took place on the 5th of December 2018, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 were handed out to the eight winning schools, the children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dancing 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 judged and presented to a learner from Impumelelo Primary School who was the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winning learner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner was given the honour of officially opening the refurbished store.
