IMPROVED FACILITIES FOR UMLAZI SCHOOLS

Eight schools in the Umlazi area are looking forward to upgrading their school grounds and facilities by using their winnings from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. Mgada Combined, Inkanyezi and Msizi Dube Primary Schools were three of the eight schools that each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of R15 000 on the 15th of June 2017 at the Cashbuild Umlazi Store Opening Ceremony.

Mgada Combined Primary School’s Principal, Z Sithole said they would like to purchase water tanks and gutters to save water as well as ceilings to replace their current ones which are falling apart.

Z Gumede, Principal of Inkanyezi Primary School added that they were on top of the world. They are thankful to Cashbuild for finally understanding their rural situation by giving back to their school.
They would like to paint the school, pave the yard as well as replace broken windows in a few classrooms.

Msizi Dube Primary School's Principal, A Ngema said that what their learners did was great and adorable. Their plans are to build new bathrooms as they need more of them.

At the official Cashbuild Umlazi store opening ceremony held on the 15th of June 2017, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 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 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 award was also presented to the overall winner, Cebolenkosi Msane from Embokodweni Primary 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.
