WINDHOEK SCHOOLS TO BE MADE SAFE

Schools in the Windhoek area are looking forward to upgrading and securing their school grounds and facilities by using their winnings from the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. A.I Steenkamp, Havana and Gammams Primary Schools were three of the eight schools that each received Cashbuild building material vouchers to the value of N$15 000 on 16 February 2017 at the Cashbuild Windhoek Store Opening Ceremony.

A.I Steenkamp Primary School's Principal M Djandja said they are glad about the news because they would like to paint the entire school, they have not been able to paint it for years. With any leftovers from the voucher, they will replace all broken windows.

A Katangolo, Principal of Havana Primary School added, while thanking Cashbuild that this was a great surprise. Their school grounds are not leveled, this is very unsafe for the learners as it causes them to slip and fall whilst playing. They would like to pave the play area to ensure safety for all their learners.

Gammams Primary School's Principal B Hengari said they are very proud of their learners for participating in the competition. They would like to purchase new door locks for their classrooms to prevent trespassers from stealing books and teaching aids.

At the official Cashbuild Windhoek store opening ceremony held on the 16th of February 2017, when the building material vouchers totaling N$120 000 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, Raju David from Gammams 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.
