Schools get help from Art-at-heart

Two kitchens, new flooring and general maintenance are just a few of the things that Reitemogetse, Gamasego, Rearata Primary schools in Kuruman have planned after winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition.  On 8th August 2013, eight winning Kuruman schools each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R12 000 at the Cashbuild Kuruman Store Opening Ceremony.     
Reitemogetse Primary School’s Principal, A Tauwyane said: “We are currently setting up open fires outside of the school to cook for our learners. We would like to use our building voucher to build a new kitchen.”

Rearata Primary School’s Principal, B.H Lehlabaphiri added: “We have potholes in the classrooms and the classroom walls are crumbling. We are going to plaster the classroom walls and buy cement to fix the floors.”

“Our school uses a corrugated iron shack to cook meals for learners”, explained Gamasego Primary School’s Principal, O.D Moroke “Over the years, it has become too small to accommodate all the learners and this is why we would like to extend the kitchen.”                
At the official Cashbuild Kuruman store opening ceremony on 8 August, 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 lucky winner, Tshepo Sechudi from Maruping Primary School
for the artwork competition. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
