Summer Jazz Series on Paarl Mountain EspAfrika, the organiser of the acclaimed Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF), has announced a new series of outdoor jazz events that will take full advantage of the balmy summer evenings in Paarl. Presented by Lion of Africa Insurance, the Summer Jazz Series is set to play host to the likes of Jimmy Dludlu, Jimmy Nevis and Judith Sephuma, who will be supported by several local acts. The series starts on Sunday 26 January at the amphitheatre adjacent to the Taal Monument on Paarl Mountain with Jimmy Dludlu performing. Dludlu was 13 years old when he first picked up a homemade guitar and started teaching himself to play by imitating the jazz and African music he heard on the radio. His first performances were at township

weddings and functions with his cousin. Through determination and hard work Dludlu’s success as an internationally renowned jazz artist has grown in leaps and bounds. His debut album for PolyGram, Echoes from the Past, was released in September 1997 to a wealth of superlatives from the media. The album was also well received by the industry and won two Sama Awards for best newcomer and best contemporary jazz album in 1998. The album has since been released in nine countries on the Verve label, including United States, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and Hungary. In March 2000, Dludlu was further acknowledged by the South African music industry, winning the best male artist category, and with Essence of Rhythm taking the best contemporary jazz album prize at the Sama Awards. Dludlu’s style includes wide-ranging influences, combining both traditional and modern elements of jazz, drawn from among others Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Pat Metheny, to South African legends Miriam Makeba, Letta Mbulu, Hugh Masekela, Themba Mokwena, and Allen Kwela. The event is presented by Lion of Africa Insurance in association with Heart104.FM, Paarl Post and South African Breweries. The concert starts at 18:00. Tickets range from R120 to R150 and are available from Computicket. For more information visit The Summer Jazz Series page on Facebook.

Mercia Mentoor het ’n spesiale toekenning van die minister ontvang.

Godfrey Gilfellan is die enigste leerder van Klein Nederburg Sekondêre Skool wat in 2013 se Nasionale Senior Sertifikaateksamen ’n A-gemiddelde behaal het.

Om uit te styg ondanks jou omstandighede DEVIDEAN MOSES Twee slimkoppe, Godfrey Gilfellan en Mercia Mentoor van Klein Nederburg Sekondêre Skool, het ondanks baie moeilike persoonlike omstandighede albei in hul 2013 Nasionale Senior Sertifikaat met vakonderskeidings geslaag. Godfrey, van Nooitgedacht-plaas, Klein Drakenstein, is die enigste A-gemiddelde leerder van die skool. Hy moes vir 12 jaar van die plaas alle uiterste weersomstandighede trotseer om daagliks die 12 km na die skool te loop. Mercia, wat drie onderskeidings behaal, naamlik 85% in rekeningkunde, 85% in Engels addisionele taal en 83% in ekonomie, was Dinsdag saam met die top-50-leerders van die Wes-Kaap by die Premier se woning, Leewenhof, vereer. Sy het een van drie buitengewone ministeriele toekennings ontvang vir ’n 2013-matrikulant wat ondanks groot persoonlike uitdaging steeds akademies uitstekend presteer het. “Ek was stomgeslaan en ter selfde tyd trots op myself, maar het nooit gedink dat ek ’n toekenning sou verower nie,” glimlag Mercia. Nadat haar ma, Erika, haar en haar twee broers Ras-Marcus en Malick by haar pa, Monte Meisenheimer in Kingston plakkerskamp gelos het, moes sy die huishouding oorneem. “My pa het toe op ’n plaas gewerk en ek wat net ses jaar oud. Ek moes klere was, kook en my boeties versorg,” vertel sy. Later kon sy nie meer by hou met al dié verpligtinge nie en het vir maande uit haar skool, Magnolia Primêr, gebly. “Vandat ek kan onthou het my ma ’n drankprobleem gehad en ons altyd agtergelaat en

dan moes my pa haar soek,” sê sy. Haar pa het toe bekommerd geraak en besluit om sy drie kinders na sy suster, Sonia King, in Bougainvillea- woonstelle te neem dat sy hulle kon versorg. Dieselfde jaar het hul tante toe hul wettige voog geword. Mercia se visie vir die toekoms is om onafhanklik te wees, sodat sy eendag vir haar pa en broers hul eie huis kan koop. Mercia sal vanjaar haar BCom Besigheidsbestuur kursus by die Universiteit van Stellenbosch afskop. Godfrey wat vanjaar BSc Chemie en Polineer aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch sal studeer, was verheug toe hy sy uitslae op 7 Januarie ontvang. “Ek het verlede jaar vir myself ’n studieprogram uitgewerk en ook ander leerders gehelp met hul skoolwerk, en so het ek myself voorberei op die eindeksamen,” vertel hy. Godfrey het vier vakonderskeidings naamlik 86% in wiskunde, 81% in lewensoriëntering, 91% in rekeningkunde en 83% in fisiese wetenskappe ontvang. Godfrey is een van drie kinders van Diana en Johnnie Swartz. Hy was vanaf laerskool altyd onder die topdrie-presteerders van sy skool. Sy geheim vir ’n suksesvolle studieplan is: Doen jou beplanning reg en probeer uitwerk hoe om tyd op vraestelle te bespaar. Klein Nederburg Sekondêre Skool het ook ’n ministeriële toekenning ontvang in die kategorie vir verbetering in Afrikaans huistaal. Die skool het vir 2013 ’n matriek-slaagsyfer van 91% behaal in vergelyking met die 2012slaagsyfer van 86,4%.

Die Caledonian Roses is die tweede oudste klopse groep wat op Nuwejaarsdag aan die Wellington Klopsefees deelgeneem het op Pelikaan Park. Die tweede rondte van hierdie jaarlikse kompetisie vind op 25 Januarie plaas met die finale rondte op 8 Februarie.

Jy die Entrepreneur: Wat gaan jy 2014 beter doen? DAVID MALHERBE Die wonder van ’n nuwe jaar is dat alhoewel ’n mens ouer word, jy elke jaar ervaar dat jy nog ’n kans gegun word om nuut te begin. Ek glo dit is hoekom ons so graag Nuwejaarsvoornemens maak. Ons wil graag beter doen as in die ou jaar.

Do you produce Mbekweni Muffins or Chicago Chocolates? Or maybe Klein Drakenstein Cookies or Smartie Town Sweets? Drakenstein Gazette wants to find out more about entrepreneurs that operate their unique businesses from their homes, making interesting products. In today’s tough economy, starting your own business is the solution. Not only do you create work for yourself, but for others too. Send us a description of your business, or come and tell us about it. Once a month the Gazette Entrepreneur of the Month will be selected. The winner will receive a promotional article in the Drakenstein Gazette and an advertisement to boost his or her business. To enter or for more information, call 021 870 4614; e-mail or visit our office at 1a New Street, Paarl.

Soms droom ons van groot veranderinge in die nuwe jaar, want die jaar wat voor ons uitstrek lyk na ’n baie lang tyd. Daar is egter ’n baie belangrike beginsel om te onthou en dit is dat ons dinge anders sal moet aanpak en anders sal moet doen as verlede jaar, indien ons ’n beter uitkoms wil verkry. Wat jy tot nou toe gedoen het, het jou jaar laat verloop soos wat dit verlede jaar verloop het. En as dit ’n goeie jaar was – wonderlik! Maar as jy soos die meeste van ons terugkyk en sê, “This year will be different”, dan is dit tyd om te beplan aan wat jy hierdie jaar anders gaan doen en daarby te hou. Om presies soos verlede jaar te doen en ’n beter jaar te verwag, is wensdenkery. Kom ons maak dit prakties. Hoe

het jy verlede jaar jou besigheid bemark? Of het jy maar gehoop die een kliënt sal vir die volgende vertel? En het jy toe genoeg gemaak? Gaan jy hierdie jaar ’n bemarkingsplan opstel vir jou besigheid sodat jy op ’n gereelde basis mense bewus maak van wat jou besigheid bied? Hoe goed was jou besigheid se finansiële rekordhouding en bestuur verlede jaar? Wat gaan jy in 2014 doen om dit te verbeter? Die belangrikste van alles is egter hoeveel wins jou besigheid genereer, want dit is waarvan jy as die eienaar en jou familie moet leef. Was jy tevrede met die wins wat jou besigheid verlede jaar gegenereer het? Indien nie, weet jy wat jy moet verander om beter te doen? En is jou besigheid se bankbalans beter as wat dit verlede jaar hierdie tyd was? Seker een van die moeilikste dinge om te doen, is om jou inkomste te verhoog sonder dat jou uitgawes te veel styg. Mag 2014 jou beste jaar wees. David Malherbe en Dewald Scholtz gesels Maandagaand van 19:00 tot 20:00 verder oor hierdie onderwerp op Radio KC 107.7FM op die program Jy die Entrepreneur.

A number of people from the community assisted last year with the annual Christmas fun day for the children of Rageltjie charity which was held at De Poort Historical Village.

Christmas party at De Poort

The Rageltjie charity organisation which was started in 1996 by Andri Fotia, held their annual Christmas party for more than 200 children last year at the De Poort Historical Village. The children were treated to a day filled with fun on slippery slides, good food and Christmas presents for each of them.

Fotia has been doing wonderful workinthecommunitybyupliftingthe lives of young people. She has provided a permanent home for 13 children after their parents either died or could no longer look after them. None of these children where ever at school, but Fotia has now seen to it that each of them go to school every day. On weekends up to 100 children can

be seen playing at her home where they also receive a meal and clothes that are donated. Two wendyhouses have been erected on her property to provide more shelter for these children. “I am very thankful for the many volunteers and local businesses who contributed so generously to the Christmas party to help create an unforgettable day for the children”, says Fotia.

Retailer PEP, which runs the PEP Academy at several schools around the country, recently held focus groups with teachers to find out whether parents and caregivers could do more to help kids at school. Teachers offered parents the following advice: • be interested in your child’s school life and progress • read to them and let them read to you • speak English regularly at home • be involved with the school • promote the right attitude towards school and learning • teach them discipline, good


manners and respect • raise them for the world, not for yourself • keep children neat, tidy and clean • provide basic stationery: a pen/pencil and a ruler, scissors, colouring pencils, sharpener, glue and a pencil case to hold the items. The teachers also cited some of the many challenges faced by learners including: • poverty • single parent households • lack of father figures • gangsterism and its lure (designer clothing and money) • kids dropping out of school.

Statistics show that one in every eight women that die in South Africa, die from complications as a result of Cancer of the Cervix. Simply translated this indicates that if your daughter attends a party with seven other little girls, one of them may die as a result of Cancer of the Cervix. Almost 80% of cervical cancers are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).The vaccination prevents the infection of the virus from developing on the cervix. “We now have the opportunity to stop this illness; all that is required is effective vaccination. Western Cape Government Health will help you do this. Our health teams will be visiting all public and special education schools in the Province during February and again in September to administer free HPV vaccination to girls in Grade 4 and who have already turned nine and older,” states Minister Theuns Botha, Western Cape Minister of Health, who is a father and grandfather. During the next three years, WCGH will annually vaccinate all Grade 4 girls. It is however of vital importance that parents/caregivers and teachers play their role in this campaign. Parents need to ensure that they have signed and return the consent forms which they will receive from the school that their child attends. No girl will be vaccinated without parental consent. The consent form will be sent to parents

during the next few weeks. The consent form will only be given to those parents whose girls are eligible for the vaccine. These are: ) Attends a public or specialised education school, ) Is in Grade 4, ) Will be nine years old or older, by the time the campaign starts (17 February), ) Has a signed consent form. Should you wish to vaccinate your daughter and she does not meet these criteria, please speak to your pharmacist. The vaccination is available at pharmacies, however you will be charged for it. Vaccination remains one of the most effective manners in which to prevent illnesses in our children. Western Cape Government Health already offers many vaccinations that help keep your child healthy. Protection against HPV is the same as these vaccinations; you are protecting your daughter’s future health. Dates for the campaign, which takes place in two rounds, are: Round 1: 17 February – 14 March. Round 2: 29 September – 24 October. For more information and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), please go to the following link, the FAQ is available in all three languages: Together, we can ensure that our daughters have a bright and healthy future.
