Art-at-Heart
    
Makeover for Windhoek schools

A new school hall, classroom floors and lock replacements are just a few of the things on the wish list of schools in the Windhoek area.  Auas, M.H. Greeff and Moses //Garoeb Primary School are three of the eight schools that each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of N$12 000 on 1 November 2012 at the Cashbuild Windhoek Store Opening Ceremony.

Moses //Garoeb Primary School’s Principal M M Gaowetse said: “Our win was a big surprise to the school. We have a half built school hall and we have been struggling to finish it, now we finally can.”
           
Principal Gerson Koncoro from Auas Primary School was very excited. He said: “We plan to renovate our school by painting and fixing the classroom floors.”                       

M.H. Greeff Primary School Principal George Kantetu said: “We are very proud of our learners and the teacher. We would like to finish the school’s fencing, painting and replacing locks.”

At the official Cashbuild Windhoek store opening ceremony on 1 November, when the building material vouchers totaling N$96 000 will be presented to all eight schools, the children will entertain 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 lucky winner, Divan Gariseb from Auas Primary School for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
