Raithby­leerlinge reik uit na die gemeenskap WILLIAM LOEDOLFF

DIE kinders en onderwysers van Raithby Primêr het verlede week die strate ingevaar om vir die gemeenskap te wys dat die kinders vir mekaar, die mense van die dorp en die omgewing omgee. Dit volg nadat die skool die Character For Life-program aangeneem het. Raithby is die eerste Kaapse skool wat deel word van ’n strategie om dorpe, stede, streke en provinsies te transformeer deur middel van ‘n “karakterrevolusie”. “Omgee” is die eerste van sewe karakterwaardes wat deur die Character for Life-span (Johnny Louw en Anne-Marie Joubert) aan skole, munisipaliteite, besighede, plase, polisiestasies, ens. aangebied word om morele waardes en spanwerk te vestig. Elke waarde gaan gepaard met ’n kleur en tema en word as ’n filosofie gedryf. Die sewe waardes is: omgee, betroubaarheid, respek, verantwoordelikheid, regverdigheid, burgerskap en geloof. “Ons gee om!” was die slagspreuk op die kinders se lippe terwyl hulle al singende deur die dorp gestap het en daar mildelik drukkies aan omstanders en nuuskieriges uitgedeel is.

Leerlinge van Raithby Primêr gee om vir hul gemeenskap. Attie Olivier (skoolhoof) noem dat kinders nie meer die waardes by hul huise leer soos van ouds nie en hy verwelkom dus die inisiatief. Juffrou Charmain Anthony van die skool het die taak aangeneem om seker te maak dat

al die kinders en onderwysers betrokke bly by die program en dat die skool as ’n eenheid saamwerk. Daar word op die oomblik beplan om ook die jeug van die dorp te betrek deur ’n opwindende karakterprogram op ’n weeklikse ba-

sis aan te bied. Dit is belangrik dat ons kyk na ons kinders, jeug, werknemers en gemeenskap. Mense is al wat ons het en mense kan die verskil maak deur deel van ’n plan te wees wat werk.

Breast­feeding is best for your baby BREAST-FEEDING is the normal way of giving young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. The Western Cape Government Health, in conjunction with the City of Cape Town, hosted a Breast-feeding festival at the Good Hope Centre in an attempt to break the current Guinness World record for the number of mothers breast-feeding at the same time, and also to promote breast-feeding to mothers with infants. Theuns Botha, Western Cape Minister of Health said that the Western Cape’s strategic objective of wellness aims to achieve the best health outcomes for the 5,8 million people in the province who depend on public health services. To achieve the aim of wellness, the province has five priority programmes which include women’s health and the decrease of child mortality.The promotion of breast-feeding is an important element of generating healthy children. Breast-feeding also speaks to the strengthening of babies’ immunity, in order to grow a healthy body. The Western Cape has more than 20 hospitals that have received the WHO/Unicef accreditation for Mother and Baby Friendly Status, indicating that they are

implementing the “10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and 3 Additional Items” appropriately. In South Africa, rates of breast-feeding, especially exclusive breast-feeding, remaining low over time, despite a number of child health programmes and interventions. Data from the 2003 South African Demographic and Health Survey (SADHS), and other studies show that although breast-feeding is a common practice in South Africa, and initiated early post-delivery, mixed feeding rather than exclusive breast-feeding is the norm. About 70% of children are reported to have received complementary feeds before the age of six months. The SADHS in 2003 found that only 11,9% of children aged 0 to 3 months were exclusively breast-fed, and 20,1% of children age 0 to 3 months were not breastfed at all. Breast milk contains the right balance of nutrients to help an infant grow into a strong and healthy toddler. Exclusive breast-feeding is recommended for up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond. The theme for this year’s breastfeeding

week is “Feeding Smart from the Start: Exclusive Breast-feeding”. Breast-feeding offers many benefits to the baby and should be initiated within the first hour after birth. Benefits include: ) protecting your baby from a long list of illnesses; ) protecting your baby from developing allergies; ) may boost your child’s intelligence; ) may protect your child from obesity; ) may lower your baby’s risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS); ) may reduce the mother’s risk of some types of cancer; ) can also reduce your stress level and your risk of postpartum depression (also called postnatal depression, a form of clinical depression which can affect women, typically after childbirth). The current record for the most number or women breast-feeding at one time stands at 3 541 on the Guinness World Book of Records and the title is held by the Philippines. This event has received the support of various partners such as Unicef, FHI360 the Dietetics Association of South Africa(ADSA) and others, and has received donations and sponsorships from various private companies as well.

Vote for our firefighters! THE Stellenbosch Municipal Fire and Rescue Department is one of 16 finalists in the Centrum® Guardian Project 2012. The competition recognises the people in the South African Emergency Services such as fire fighters, rescue technicians, paramedics, lifeguards, off-road and sea rescue volunteers that people seldom think about. This year the 16 semi-finalists include men and women in the emergency services who gave 100% to save lives. In every case, they were the only hope and without their daring commitment, all of their stories would

have had very different endings. Community members are invited to vote for the semi-finalists that inspire them to live life to the full. Each semi-finalist’s story entered into the competition is available to read on www.centrumguardian.com. Public votes will determine who will be awarded the “Centrum® Guardian of the Year 2012” title. The proceeds from SMS votes will be donated to the base station of the “Guardian” voted for.

cue personnel had to rescue vagrant men trapped under a collapsed building in Ida’s Valley. Each of the semi-finalist’s stories will also appear on Centrum® Guardians 2012 on SABC 3 on Thursdays at 22:10, with repeat broadcasts on Fridays at 10:00.

Kleuterbosch a ‘model site’

Kleuterbosch pre-primary school

(WCED).

Kleuterbosch is the oldest pre-primary school in Stellenbosch, founded 40 years ago is set to upgrade their playground, thanks to an award of R5 000 from the Western Cape Education Department

The WCED chose Kleuterbosch as a “model site” where “learning experiences with Grade R practitioners” could be shared with neighbouring schools. According to a letter from the WCED, the

Borgskap vir skryfkursus DIE skrywer Rachelle Greeff bied van 14 tot 15 September ’n skryfkursus by die Afrikaanse Taalmonument aan. Kursusgangers het die keuse om in die maand ná die kursus ook hul eie skryfwerk vir kommentaar voor te lê. Die kursus sluit ook een borgskap in. Die sluitingsdatum vir aansoeke is 14 Au-

gustus. Die Taalmonument maak voorsiening vir ’n borgskap vir een kursusganger. Die kursus word tot 12 persone beperk en vind daagliks van 09:00 tot 16:00 plaas. Dit kos R2 000 per kursusganger en sluit ’n ligte vingermiddagete en koffie en tee in. Bel Amira Clayton by 021 863 4809/0543 of 2 kommunikasie@taalmuseum.co.za.

education department is “committed to improving education in Grade R classes by creating an indoor and outdoor environment that will contribute to the holistic development of all Grade R learners”. The R5 000 award will be used to purchase outdoor learning equipment including balls

and trampolines, said Carine Brown at Kleuterbosch on Tuesday. Brown is the head teacher at Kleuterbosch, where she has been working for 25 years. Brown said Kleuterbosch, which teaches grades 0 and R, has to compete with other schools in the area, many of which have Grade R classes of their own. These days, she said, learners often attend Grade R at primary schools and not pre-primary schools. Brown’s office is filled with children’s books, framed artwork by the learners, educational videos, soccer balls and basket balls. Her office window overlooks the playground now due for an upgrade. “We have a lovely playground,” said Brown proudly. The award will go towards enriching the already lovely playground - the current playground has adequate jungle gyms, with slides and swings, but Kleuterbosch will benefit from additional outdoor play equipment. While the WCED commits itself to improving education in Grade R classes in its letter, only Brown’s teaching post is funded by the department. The remaining teachers are in posts subsidised by school fees and the ACVV (Afrikaanse Christelike Vrouevereniging). Asked for comment, Bronagh Casey, spokesperson for the WCED responds, “Kleuterbosch is an independent pre-primary school. Pre-primary schools do not fall under the ambit of the WCED.” While the WCED only funds one post, the ACVV is very involved in supporting Kleuterbosch and aims to create healthy communities through healthy families. This isn’t always easy, said Brown, because parents work. In the past, parents were more involved in school activities. In spite of this, Brown still feels privileged to be working at Kleuterbosch pre-primary.

Stickers will be sold at the following Stellenbosch organisations: Huis Horison (021 887 5080), Stellenbosch Work Centre for Adult Persons with Disabilities (021 887 8688) and Dorothea School (021 889 5461/3 ).

Winners of pruning competition announced at Blaauwklippen THE fourth annual Blaauwklippen / FELCO Agrimark Pruning Competition took place on Wednesday 8 August. It was held at Blaauwklippen. The competition was started to give farm workers a platform to show off their pruning skills and to act as an educational experience to explain why and how vines are pruned. Altogether 24 pruners from in and around Stellenbosch participated in the competition. Prizes to the value of R5 000, courtesy of Felco & Agrimark Stellenbosch, were up for grabs. The competition was great and all stops were pulled out in order to get the highest percentage.

Only 1% separated the top 3 pruners. After a very hard battle the 2012 champion pruner was announced: Jan van der Merwe from Neethlingshof, who earned a total of 97,5%. In a very close second place was Manuel Williams from Asara with a total of 97%. The third spot went to Denise Swart from Simonsig with her total of 96,5%. After the winners were announced all the participants, sponsors and vineyard owners enjoyed lunch at Blaauwklippen. The competition was concluded in a block of eleven-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Judges Johan Viljoen and Conrad Schutte from Vinpro were impressed with the overall standard of entries.

Make your medical savings funds stretch till year­end STATISTICALLY over half of South Africa’s eight million medical aid members would have by now run out of their medical savings funds that cover day-to-day expenses, which may contribute to less effective disease management. Mariska Fouché, spokesperson for Pharma Dynamics, one of SA’s leading pharmaceutical companies says medical aid members who are faced with having to pay additional medical costs out of their own pockets, could limit their access to proper health care. “When patients do not take medicines as they should, there is a primary cost to their health of the illness not being properly treated, but there is also a secondary health cost when the original problem worsens and gets more expensive or even impossi-

ble to treat effectively. Therefore it is vital that medical scheme members manage their medical savings funds better,” says Fouché. She offers the following advice: ) Familiarise yourself with your scheme’s rules, in particular which expenses are paid from your benefits and which are paid out of your Medical Savings Account (MSA) to keep expenses in check. ) Family members should know and understand the medical aid rules and annual limits and how much money each person has to spend. ) Be sure to keep track of how much of your medical expenses were paid out of your own pocket during the previous year in order to claim tax benefits. ) Most medical aids require you to register your chronic condition before

payment is made from your “benefits” . If not registered, you will continue to pay from your MSA, so be sure to phone your medical scheme to find out if your chronic illness is a prescribed minimum benefit (PMB) condition. ) Choose generic medicine, which is often half the price of brand name medicines. ) Some doctors charge medical aid rates while others charge a much higher rate. Don’t feel embarrassed to request medical aid rates. ) Avoid extra charges for emergency treatments, unless you have a real crisis on your hands. ) If you have applied all of the above steps and are still not making it on your medical savings, then perhaps look at a different medical aid plan with a threshold benefit built into it.

Suspi vier mini­ Olimpiese Spele in Jamestown Terwyl Suid-Afrika se Olimpiese atlete deelneem aan die Olimpiese Spele in Londen, het Stellenbosch sy eerste mini- Olimpiese Spele op 4 Augustus in Jamestown aangebied. Die Universiteit Stellenbosch Sport Prestasie Instituut (Suspi), in samewerking met Weber Gedenk Primêr, het Saterdag gasheer gespeel vir 130 leerlinge van vyf plaaslike laerskole: Weber Gedenk, Groendal, Klapmuts, Raithby en Vlottenburg. David Kappel, projekkoördineerder van Suspi se Jeugsportinisiatief, en sy span van 30 jeugsportleiers van die uitreikprogram het uit hul pad gegaan om die 130 leerlinge soos ware kampioene te laat voel. Onder die toesig van twee fasiliteerders van die Suid-Afrikaanse nie-regeringsorganisasie Altus Sport, is die leerlinge in groepe ingedeel om sewe lande te verteenwoordig: Griekeland, Ghana, Malawi, Namibië, Nigerië, Uganda en Suid-Afrika. Net soos in Londen, het die miniOlimpiese Spele begin met ’n optog waartydens die sewe lande om die gemeenskapsportgronde in Jamestown geloop het. Die kinders het gesing en mekaar ondersteun in die gees van die

Toe was dit tyd vir die Olimpiese fakkel om in Jamestown aan te kom en Remarco Snyders van Klapmuts het die eer gehad om die Olimpiese vlam aan te steek en so die formele deel van die seremonie af te skop. Gert Potgieter, ’n voormalige Suid-Afrikaanse Olimpiese atleet en wêreldrekordhouer, het ’n motiveringstoespraak gelewer. “Hierdie geleentheid is ’n goeie voorbeeld van die passie en die invloed van die Olimpiese beweging, maar vandag gaan nie oor wen nie.

Ringe van HOOP.

Dit gaan oor pret en om nuwe vriende te maak. Vandag is ’n goeie geleentheid om te leer oor belangrike lewensvaardighede wat hand aan hand gaan met die Olimpiese waardes van respek, sportmanskap en vriendskap.” Ná Potgieter se inspirerende toespraak, het die kinders die volkslied gesing en die Olimpiese eed is voorgelees. Terence Moses, adjunkhoof van Weber Gedenk Primêr, het die spele amptelik oop verklaar.

Die kinders is besig gehou met straatsokker, hokkie, krieket, sakresies, limbo-dans, hoogspring, netbal en ’n lewensvaardigheidsessie oor die Olimpiese waardes. Die hoogtepunt van die dag was die aflos. Griekeland het eerste oor die wenstreep genael met SuidAfrika kort op hul hakke. Ná ’n kort afsluitingseremonie, het twee leerlinge van Weber Gedenk Primêr gedigte gelees oor die Olimpiese waardes. Die res van die deelnemers het elk ’n Suspi-medalje en ’n middag-

ete-pakkie, geborg deur Weber Gedenk Primêr, ontvang. “Dit was ’n ongelooflike dag vir die kinders en ons jeugleiers het fantastiese werk gedoen om die byeenkoms te organiseer. “Ons span het bewys dat ons reg is om gasheer te speel vir meer geleenthede van dié kaliber en ons hoop om nog borge te werf wat ons kan help om meer van Stellenbosch se kinders soos klein kampioene te laat voel,” het die organiseerder, David Kappel, gesê. – http://blogs.sun.ac.za

Sponsor for Kayamandi’s Barca Juniors KAYAMANDI’S Barca Juniors soccer team has a new sponsor. Cellfind, a provider of GSM locationbased services, has become involved in an effort to give something back to the community. The sponsorship will kit the team out in shirts, socks and shorts for their competitive matches. Barca Juniors was founded by six policemen who wanted to help get young boys off the streets and away from the temptation to turn to petty crime as a means of alleviating boredom and frustration with a lack of opportunities. The police officers , who patrol the townships and suburbs of Stellenbosch, coach some 250 children five days a week ahead of matches every Saturday. The club was founded on the idea that the discipline, focus and commitment of

competitive sport will help the kids to succeed in life as well as on the football pitch. In addition to football coaching, the club offers the boys financial literacy training with a local bank manager, tutoring for their schoolwork, and leadership courses through a start-up company called Future Indefinite. “We are proud to support the hardworking volunteer coaches and the deserving young players of Barca Juniors as a sponsor,” said Jacques Swanepoel, MD of Cellfind, a subsidiary of the JSE-listed Blue Label Telecoms Group. “They have already achieved so much with limited resources. The work that Barca Juniors is doing for disadvantaged kids is inspiring – it is really helping them achieve the focus and confidence that will help them to excel in other areas of their lives.”
