PAVING AND CEILING REPAIRS FOR KWA-GUQA SCHOOLS

Cashbuild Art at Heart Event Kwa Guqa 2019 Eight schools in Kwa-Guqa, Mpumalanga were the lucky winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. The schools each received a Cashbuild building material voucher to the value of R15 000 which means the schools will be able to improve and repair their premises. The vouchers were handed out to all eight schools at the Art-at-Heart ceremony at the refurbished Cashbuild Kwa-Guqa store on the 4th of December 2019.

Nancy Shiba Primary School and Johannes Kananda Primary School were just two of the schools that each received a Cashbuild building material voucher.

Mrs Jacqueline Mabogwane, the principal of Nancy Shiba Primary School says they would love to renew the entrance to the school grounds. "At the moment, the area where we arrive and enter is just made up of sand and soil. As everyone enters, sand usually gets trampled into the corridors and classrooms which results in the school front and rest of the grounds looking untidy. With this voucher, we would like to pave this area which will definitely assist in making the school look neater and lessen the daily cleaning of sand."

Johannes Kananda Primary School's principal, Mr Absolom Madonsela said: "We will be doing some much-needed restoration of the ablution facilities and some of the classrooms. There are a few classroom ceilings which are in desperate need of replacing as they are damaged due to wear and tear. This is a priority. With the ablution facilities, we would like to replace some basins, improve the plumbing, as well as do some tiling." He said they would also like to undertake some general painting.

At the Art-at-Heart ceremony at the refurbished Cashbuild Kwa-Guqa store which took place on the 4th of December 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 Besilindile Primary School who 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 trophy. The winner was also given the honour of officially opening the refurbished store.
