Zebediela schools’ wishes come true

A fresh coat of paint and new toilet equipment are just a few of the things on the wish list for eight winning Zebediela schools. Tintela and Ramolokoane Primary School are two of the schools that each received Cashbuild building materials vouchers after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. On 26 June 2014, building material vouchers to the value of R96 000 were handed over to the winners at the Cashbuild Zebediela Store Opening Ceremony. Tintela Primary School’s Principal M.S Mphahlele said: “We are so thankful to Cashbuild for choosing our school as one of the winners. We would like to use our voucher to paint the school’s exterior, build a food storage unit as well as a kitchen at the school.”

Ramolokoane Primary School’s Principal S.S Molapisane said: “We are planning on repairing the broken toilets at the school.”

At the official Cashbuild Zebediela store opening ceremony on 26 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, Thapelo Legoabe from Mogoto Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The schools and children that benefited from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart donations were:
