IMPROVING THE STANDARDS OF DAWN PARK SCHOOLS

Eight Schools in the Dawn Park area have been chosen as the winners of the Cashbuild Art-at-Heart competition. They will each receive a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000 at the Cashbuild Dawn Park Store Opening Ceremony on the 17th of April 2015. The completion of an assembly, fixing of a recycling station and various repairs on the school buildings will be amongst some of the items on the list that the school principals say will be improved.

Rondebult and Igagasi Primary Schools are two of the eight chosen schools that will each receive a Cashbuild building materials voucher worth R15 000. Rondebult Primary School’s principal, N M Kenyana says that in thanking Cashbuild, we are over the moon, this competition came at the right time.

B S Msibi, principal of Igagasi Primary School says: “We are very excited to be witnessing the improvements in our school. This is the beginning of a new partnership with Cashbuild.”

At the official Cashbuild Dawn Park Store Opening Ceremony on 17 April 2015, when the building material vouchers totaling R120 000 will be presented to all eight schools, the children will entertain 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 five years.

Artwork will be judged and three winners from each school will be named. Winners will receive Cashbuild Art-at-Heart gold, silver and bronze certificates for first, second and third place respectively. The Manager’s Choice award will also be presented to the overall winner of the artwork competition. This award will be announced on the day and the winner will receive a stationery pack and a glass trophy.
