Stellenbosch Municipality makes a difference Stellenbosch Municipality embraced the ideals of Mandela Day and promoted dignified living by constructing a temporary library, donating blood, handing out cooked meals, blankets and toys and paving and planting a garden at a new clinic. They also supported the MFM radio project which focused on the Sibongumusa Crèche in Kayamandi. Most importantly, staff and councillors made personal donations rather than rely on the municipality’s funds for this year’s celebrations. Here they are at the Okuhle Connie’s Educare Centre in Kayamandi where they donated toys.

Poeding, port en poësie Kom geniet ’n poeding, port en poësie-aand met drie gewilde Afrikaanse kunstenaars op Woensdag 14 Augustus, Taaldag, in die Paarl. Dit word aangebied deur die Wynland Dameskring in samewerking met die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument. Die bekende akteurs Johann Nel en Elsabé Daneel sal van hul gunsteling Afrikaanse gedigte voordra, onder meer uit die bundel Gewildste Afrikaanse Gedigte. Die sanger Emile Minnie sal toonsettings sing van sy album Spore op die Maan, ’n versameling Afrikaanse gedigte wat voorgeskryf is vir graad 12leerlinge. Hy sal ook liedjies sing van sy nuutste album Anderkant die Ewigheid sowel as Franse liefdesliedjies van sy album Chanson. Minnie word deur Laurika Rauch, wat al drie van sy liedjies opgeneem het, beskryf as een van SuidAfrika se top-liedjieskrywers. Sy CD Nagmusiek is genomineer vir ’n Sama vir beste alternatiewe Afrikaanse album, hy was onder die topdrie in die Huisgenoot Tempo-liedjiekompetisie, genomineer vir ’n Kanna by die KKNK, en ’n finalis in die ATKV Crescendo kompetisie. Taaldag word jaarliks op 14 Augustus gevier om die stigting van die Genootskap van Regte Afrikaners (GRA) op 14 Augustus 1875 te herdenk. Die GRA het hulle daarvoor beywer om Afrikaans as leesen skryftaal te vestig en het die eerste Afrikaanse koerant, Die Afrikaanse Patriot, in 1876 gepubliseer. Kaartjies is teen R50 beskikbaar by die Dameskring by 021 872 9602 of 072 2196 420. Die kaartjieverkope is ten bate van die Dameskring se beursfonds vir behoeftige Afrikaanse studente.

Films tackle mental health issues Pharma Dynamics, one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of central nervous system (CNS) medication, has again joined forces with the Film Industry Learner Mentorship (F.I.L.M.) programme and the Mental Health Information Centre (MHIC) at Stellenbosch University to get the country talking about mental health conditions, which affect millions of South Africans, many of whom go through life undiagnosed and untreated. This year, about 40 interns at F.I.L.M. and guided by MHIC experts have made striking and emotionally charged short films for the Let’s Talk campaign around the following critical challenges in South Africa: ) Depression and unemployment: One in four “economically active” South Africans is now without work and studies show that unemployment is a risk factor for psychological symptoms of depression requiring medical intervention. ) Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): Psychiatrists estimate that at least 10% of the population has been affected by PTSD, which is a de-

bilitating condition that follows a traumatic event, including domestic violence, traffic accidents, crime and war. ) Depression and suicide in young people: Research shows that suicide accounts for 1 in 10 deaths from non-natural causes in youngsters. For every young person who commits suicide in South Africa, 20 attempt to commit suicide. The interns, who hail mostly from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, worked in teams to create eight short films, all with different themes, plots, genres and points of view so that viewers will no doubt find a story that they can relate to. Move, for example, tells the story of two men with PTSD, one of whom was a former policeman who lost his legs and friends in a tragic and fatal car accident and the other who was almost murdered during a home invasion. Now, they have found relief and solace in interpretative dance by performing a haunting pas de deux at a studio in Cape Town. In Ice Cold, a priest and a tsotsi both deal with the mental fallout and
Die Stellenbosch Gemeenskapspolisiëringsforum hou op 24 Julie om 18:00 sy eerste vergadering vir die jaar. “Die GPF is ’n vennootskap tussen die polisie en die gemeenskap om veiligheid te bevorder en misdaad te bekamp, en dien as instrument van burgerlike oorsig oor die polisie,” het Roelof van der Merwe, voorsitter van die Stellenbosch GPF, gesê.
“Die vlak van misdaad op Stellenbosch is heeltemal onaanvaarbaar,” het hy bygevoeg. Almal word na die vergadering toe genooi.

PTSD following the shooting of an innocent young girl in a township hijacking. Other films tackle the burdens of being a teenager, the aftermath of rape and effects of unemployment. All the films have been posted on YouTube (search for Let’s Talk Mental) and viewers are welcome to discuss the issues they contain and vote on the ones they find most useful or relevant. “We decided to use short films that incorporate young people in situations and real-life places they can relate to as a starting point to a bigger discussion on mental health issues,” said Mariska Fouché, public affairs manager for Pharma Dynamics. “Getting sufferers, friends, families and communities to talk about their perceptions of issues like depression and youth suicide is the best way to start addressing stereotypes, encouraging treatment and getting all those affected on the road to recovery.” For more information on the project, please visit www.letstalkmental.co.za
PLAASLIKE ONDERWYSER ONTMOET SKAAKMEESTER: Uhlan Lackay, onderwyser en skaak-afrigter van Laerskool Rietenbosch (regs) het hom as FIDE-Arbiter (skaakskeidsregter) tydens die State Bond en Suid-Afrikaanse Ope Skaakkampioenskap bekwaam.

Lackay wil nou sy vaardighede gebruik om skaak in die dorp en die streek te ontwikkel en na ’n hoër vlak te neem. President Jacob Zuma het ook tydens die prysuitdeling die belangrikheid van skaak as ’n skole sport beklemtoon en gesê dat skaak meer aandag gaan geniet en selfs nog vinniger in skole moet groei.

Pupils taking part in a demonstration at the open day in 2012.
Various experiments are explained to the pupils..
Pupils invited to open day at university Come and expand your study horizons at the Stellenbosch University’s (SU) open day on Friday 2 August. The event is open to all pupils in and around Stellenbosch and will be held from 09:00 to 16:30 on the Stellenbosch campus. “There are too many pupils who are not aware of the variety of ‘new’ careers and associated study programmes that can be followed. “Our experience is also that many pupils are unaware of the long list of available bursaries and loans,” says Leon van den Heever, the director for prospective students at the SU. Anne Havemann-Serfontein, a career psychologist at the Centre for Prospective Students (CPS), is of the opinion that many pupils are unaware of the option to enter the business world with a BA degree, for example. “Few also realise that a degree from the faculty of AgriSciences can lead to a career in environmental impact assessment and monitoring, eco-tourism or even food
sciences. “In order to address these realities the university makes a concerted effort to expand the horizons of grade 11 and 12 pupils, their parents and even teachers, by providing them with useful information about careers, study choices, bursaries and accommodation – regardless of where they decide to study. Open Day visitors will on 2 August be able to visit more than 100 information stalls, which include ten academic faculties, the respective departments, the various SU support services – such as bursaries and loans, student fees, Maties sport and academic support – as well as Maties student bodies, residences and societies. Accommodation is crucial for all prospective students, and for this reason there will also be stalls for enquiries about university residences, as well as private accommodation options. All the residences will be open for viewing. Some of the other stalls include facilities available for handi-
capped students, the library, Centre for Student Counselling and Development (CSCD) and the Language Centre. Several other educational institutions will also be present, such as Boland College and the Isa Carstens Academy. Apart from the information stalls, all the faculties and the Centre for Prospective Students will also be presenting information sessions during the course of the open day. Student leaders will also offer interesting campus tours, and to top this MFM 92.6, the campus radio station, will broadcast from the Neelsie student centre. The open day is hosted in and around the Neelsie and on the Rooiplein. Admission is free and parking will be available close to the Neelsie. For further information visit the website at www.maties.com. Pupils interested in attending can also call the Centre for Prospective Students on 021 808 4709 or 021 808 2631.

Local councillors planted the first tree in the Million Trees Project in the Jan Marais Nature Reserve in April 2013.
Tuesday 23 July 2013
Some trees were also handed out to local school pupils during this event.
Get involved in the municipality’s ‘Million trees project’ and beautify our town In 1712 Simon van der Stel launched a project to plant 1 000 oak trees along the streets of Stellenbosch to beautify the town.
Since the origin of the town trees have formed an integral part of its character and Stellenbosch became known as the “Town of Oaks”. Therefore it was no surprise that mayor Conrad Sidego, during Arbor Week 2012, announced an initiative to plant a million trees in the Greater Stellenbosch. This legacy of a treed, green environment will be the well-spring from which all citizens will benefit. The key focus of the Stellenbosch Municipality’s Million Trees Project is to provide dignified living spaces for all, thus sharing the environmental, social and economical benefits.

The municipality had wonderful support from the Wildlands Conservation Trust in Kwazulu Natal, sponsoring an intern which will oversee the river-rehabilitation component of the project. The municipal environmental officer, in collaboration with the parks department, is rolling out education programmes at schools to instill the value of a green environment as well. This initiative is not only aimed at homeowners, but also at developers, the agricultural sector and all other land owners. Anyone can make a contribution or get involved by donating trees,
Pressures of development and urbanisation often cause an imbalance in nature which can be corrected by planting trees. The project is a collective effort with the public to plant avenues, sidewalks, parks, recreational spaces, cemeteries and, wider than that, any privately-owned land. Currently tree surveys are being done throughout suburbs to map where new tree-planting opportunities exist. “Tree-a-thons” will be rolled out during which suburbs will be targeted and planted in a day, with the help and buy-in of all those affected. According to the municipality partnerships with like-minded institutes and organisations are being forged, to strengthen the collective effort. Members of the public are encour-

Parents to instill culture of saving in children from a young age Research shows that those who successfully save during adulthood have been taught to do so as children by their parents. According to a recent survey by the South African Savings Institute of South Africa (SISA), 56% of employed South Africans start to save at the age of 28 – an alarming statistic given that the recommended age to secure a nest egg and comfortable retirement is 23 years. “Various factors influence and impact on the ability of an individual to save,” said Lezanne Human CEO of FNB Investment Products. “Fear of retirement and the ability to pay for children’s education impact individuals over 30.
