Padvaardig SKOENE VIR VOETJIES. Leerders van LK Zeeman Laerskool in Paarl-Oos spog hier met die nuwe skoene wat hulle onlangs ontvang het as ’n skenking van ’n plaaslike gemeente. Hierdie jongspan sal dalk volgende jaar nie meer in dié skool wees nie, aangesien LK Zeeman een van verskeie kleiner skole is wat volgens die Onderwysdepartement aan die einde van die jaar moet sluit weens die afname in leerdergetalle. Die skool onderhandel tans met die Departement en die finale besluit sal eers later vanjaar geneem word. Foto: Ernest Kilowan

Your beautiful winter boots could put you at risk of a car accident WHETHER it’s an ankle boot, biker boot, knee-high riding boot, combat-style laceup or the must-have wedge - your boots could impair your driving capability. Based on studies done overseas, 1st for Women Insurance Brokers advises ladies that wearing restrictive, obstructive or improper footwear could cause them to have an accident. “Wearing tight or high-fitting boots that restrict leg movement or boots with thick soles or high heels can affect your driving ability. Without complete freedom of movement, your reaction time to brake or accelerate could be slowed. “Similarly, obstructive soles and heels could result in you stepping on the accelerator and brake at the same time, or push the wrong pedal entirely. Essentially, your ability to maintain control of your vehicle is compromised,” says Robyn Farrell from 1st for Women. According to Farrell, one of the largest car insurance companies in the United Kingdom conducted a survey

of 1 200 women which showed that about 15% had lost control of their cars due to wearing boots with thick soles. They also warned against heavilypadded jackets, which could hamper movement while driving, as well as hand gloves, which could cause a driver to lose traction on the steering wheel. “We conducted a mini-survey to gauge how South African women feel about driving in boots and high heels and the majority thinks it’s a breeze. “One woman did admit to losing control of her car due to her inappropriate footwear and some said that they usually swop their fashionable footwear for flats when driving,” says Farrell. It’s not only boots with thick soles that female drivers need to be wary of. Farrell says that you shouldn’t drive wearing your winter boots if: ) The soles are more than seven centimeters thick. ) The soles are too wide that you risk applying pressure to more than one pedal at once. ) They do not have sufficient grip on the soles and slip easily off the pedals. ) They restrict the movement of your ankles and the muscles in your legs because they are either too high or tight-fitting. ) They have high heels which hamper your ability to move between or apply pressure to pedals. Farrell concludes: “We all love our winter boots, but be honest with yourself, if they hamper your ability to operate and control your car properly, don’t wear them when you drive. “Instead, keep a pair of less bulky shoes in your car for when you’re driving and simply swap them for your boots when you arrive at your destination.”

Youth service THE Paarl Anglican Archdeaconry Praise and Worship Youth Service will take place on 1 July at Old St Stephen’s Anglican Church, 528 Main Street, Paarl at 17:00.

Clinics for schoolgirl netball SCORES of schoolgirls from schools in and around Cape Town will benefit from the World University Netball Championships (WUNC) Legacy programme next month when the competing teams conduct coaching clinics at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) on Sunday 1 July. Primary school players will attend the coaching clinics from 09:00 to 11:00 in the morning and the high schools from 11:00 to 13:00. The participating schools were nominated by the Western Province Schools Netball Union as being particularly worthy of extra attention. The WUNC mascot, Pukki, will distribute T-shirts and snack packs to all those attending the coaching clinics. “The Legacy programme is a very important part of the WUNC,” said tournament direc-

tor Helene Botha. “Players at that level are very focussed on high performance, and coaching players at grass roots level reminds them of why they love to play the game,” she said. “They are reminded of their passion for netball, and the clinics give them the opportunity to give something back to the game.” Botha said much of the Legacy programme would be devoted to skills training, with emphasis on defence and attack. She said meeting players who have reached a high level of performance would inspire the youngsters attending the clinics. The organisers are encouraging as many schools and clubs in and around Cape Town to come to watch the tournament, and ticket prices have been kept low. Adults pay R20 and children younger than 12 pay R10. The tournament will be played at the Good Hope Centre from 2-7 July.

Amateur boxing in Kuils River AMATEUR boxers across the country will be geared up and ready for the 2012 South African National Boxing Organisation (SANABO) Elite Boxing Championships, to take place at the Western Cape Sports School in Nooiensfontein, Kuils River in Cape Town. This championship will run from 4 July to 7 July from 12:00 to 19:00. SANABO, in conjunction with the Department of Cultural Affairs and the City of Cape Town will host this year’s event. The championship has already produced many boxers who competed in major boxing events in Africa and Europe. The outcome of this year’s tournament will again see a national team being selected to participate in major events, and these boxers will indeed have their sights on future international games such as the 2014 Commonwealth and 2016 Olympics finals.
