Elkanah House can ‘can can’

| March 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Since inception, Elkanah House School in Cape Town has been actively involved in sustaining the environment. Last year, the school entered the Collect-A-Can Can Craze Competition 2013. The company is involved in the recovery of all scrap tinplate generated in the tinplate and can-making processes — most importantly, the recovery of used metal cans. Collect-a- Can’s Can Craze Competition challenges learners to build innovative structures from 300 or more used cans.

Elkanah House Junior High School art pupils collected hundreds of soda cans and used them to construct a dancing ‘Can-can Girl’.

Decorated with life-like eyelashes, curly hair and fancy shoes, she stands 2.2 m tall. The sculpture was constructed at school and won first prize in the competition. Part of the prize money was donated to charity and the balance was used to purchase tools and equipment for the school’s art and design department.
