In keeping with House and Leisure’s July issue Renovations theme, we decided to do a mini revamp at St. Mary’s Primary School in Gardens, Cape Town for Mandela Day. With delicious cups of Tribe Coffee keeping us warm, we started to transform the drab school walls with long-lasting Prominent Paints Premium Satin 100% lead free outdoor paint. Build It Cape Town and Laughton’s Hardware Sea Point also generously donated paint equipment, which the school will continue to use for future projects. Belgotex Carpets installed colourful blue Duraturf synthetic grass to brighten up the children’s play area. When the kids came back to school on 21 July 2014, we spotted them rolling around on the grass, where previously there had only been tarmac. A special thank you to all our sponsors for making this happen.
