A transformative opportunity has been extended to eight schools in and around Randfontein, elevating their educational environments through substantial upgrades, each valued at R15,000.
This significant initiative is credited to Cashbuild Randfontein, the triumphant victor of the recent Art-at-Heart competition. The awarded schools were presented with valuable vouchers, marking a pivotal moment in their development.
The culmination of this benevolent act was celebrated during an impactful hand-over ceremony hosted at the Randfontein CBD branch on August 11. This event stands as a cornerstone of Cashbuild’s store relaunch program, accentuating their commitment to community upliftment.
Among the fortunate recipients, Setholela Primary School and Patrick Mashego Primary School emerge as two of the eight institutions entrusted with building material vouchers.
In an exclusive conversation with the Randfontein Herald, Bongi Phakathi, Principal of Patrick Mashego Primary School, expressed their timely elation, stating, “We are very happy to have been identified as the winners. It comes at a time when we were already stressed as we were building classrooms but couldn’t finish the project, so the voucher will definitely come in handy. We are going to be using it towards completing the classrooms. This is surely a blessing in disguise.”
Nkululeko Ndhlovu, Principal of Setholela Primary School, echoed the sentiment of gratitude, highlighting the strategic value of the allocated funds. “We are delighted. This voucher will be used towards erecting palisade fencing around the Grade R playground, as well as paving the grounds outside of the classrooms in the front of the school to cover the huge potholes,” stated Ndhlovu.
This generous gesture has also touched other institutions, namely Bulelani Primary School, Toekomsrus Primary School, Hartzstraat Primary School, Mohlakeng Primary School, Patrick Mashego Primary School, Laerskool Westgold, and Brandvlei Primary School, all of which have benefited from Cashbuild’s Art-at-Heart donations.
Elevating this philanthropic endeavor further, the long-standing Art-at-Heart campaign has witnessed Cashbuild’s profound impact over two decades, benefiting over 3,900 schools in Southern Africa with an astonishing contribution of over R50 million in building materials.
