CASHBUILD AIDS SCHOOLS IN KANYAMAZANE TO BUILD CLASSROOMS

Cashbuild Art at Heart Event Kanyamazane 2019 Eight schools in Kanyamazane, Mpumalanga, were the lucky winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition and their prize now allows them to improve school facilities. The schools each won a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000, which was handed out at the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Kanyamazane store on the 16th of May 2019.

Vulamasango Primary School, Tekwane Primary School and Lekazi Primary School were just three of the eight schools that received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Vulamasango Primary School's principal, Mr Phiri, will be using the voucher to build new classrooms. "Our school currently has 1200 children, but only 22 classrooms. We would like to use the voucher to start building these additional rooms so that the learners can have more space and be more comfortable during their lessons. In addition, our toilets need fixing." He adds that they are very grateful to Cashbuild for this opportunity to be able to work on their maintenance, and if there is any money remaining, they would like to do some work on the school's courtyard and kitchen.

Mrs Wessels, the principal of Tekwane Primary School said the assembly area where learners meet every week is in need of new paving. "We are so happy to have this voucher, as we can improve the assembly area. This is a general area for the learners, so the space needs to be safe, tidy and easily accessible." She added that the school is also in need of some outside taps and hand-wash basins which they are hoping to install.

Lekazi Primary School's principal, Mr Lukhombo, will be using the voucher for numerous things. "Firstly, we need additional classrooms and with this voucher we would like to start building these. We need to repair the entry gates at the back of the school, extend the kitchen and also build a shelter for the students to stand under while waiting for their transport." He added that they are grateful to Cashbuild, as they are now able to kick-start the process for some of their plans.

At the opening ceremony of the refurbished Cashbuild Kanyamazane store on the 16th of May 2019, 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 to submit their best artwork to Cashbuild. This artwork is displayed at the ceremony, and 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 was awarded to a learner from Likhweti Primary School wwho 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 also given the honour of officially opening the refurbished store.
