LEARNERS' ARTWORK BENEFITS KOKSTAD SCHOOLS

New ceilings, grass cutters as well as a fresh coat of paint are some of the improvements that Kokstad school principals plan to make as a result of winning the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Altogether, seven Kokstad schools each received a Cashbuild building material voucher worth R15 000 which was presented at the Cashbuild Kokstad Store Opening Ceremony held on the 11th of August 2017.

The Principal of Kokstad Public Primary School, A Mkhize said they would like to replace ceilings from a few classrooms as well as replace some door locks. The Arts and Culture Teacher of Nonkqubela Primary School, A Lungu added that they are grateful for being chosen as the winners. They need grass cutters, poles as well as wires to keep their sports field clean and always covered.

The Principal of Nomzamo Primary School, A Madikizela said they are going to paint the entire school and repair their bathrooms.

At the official Cashbuild Kokstad store opening ceremony held on the 11th of August 2017, when the building material vouchers totaling R105 000 were presented to all seven 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 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 Managerís Choice award was also presented to the overall winner, Micke Bosman from Kokstad Junior School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy. The winner also officially opened the store.
