Art at Heart Putting learner creativity to good use

Upgraded classrooms, container and window repairs around the school are some of the changes that will be made at the seven winning schools in Krugersdorp, thanks to Cashbuild. At the Cashbuild Krugersdorp Store Opening Ceremony held on 13 March 2015 each school received a Cashbuild building material voucher worth R12 000. Patrick Mashego, Krugersdorp and Diphalane Primary Schools are just three of the seven schools which each received a R12 000, Cashbuild building material voucher

Patrick Mashego Primary School’s Principal Ms Phakathi said: “The feeling is unexplainable and it feels good to be recognized.  We feel very cared for by Cashbuild.” Diphalane Primary School’s Principal Mr Motsage also said that it is an honor to be chosen and they believe that it is the beginning of a great partnership with Cashbuild.

At the official Cashbuild Krugersdorp Store Opening Ceremony held on 13 March, the children entertained everyone with singing, cultural dances and theatrical performances while Cashbuild building material vouchers totaling R84 000 were presented to all seven schools.

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 five 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, Sibusiso Mvula from Patric Mashego Primary School. This award was announced on the day and the winner received a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
