Maties tops Die Maties-Helderberg Sportklub vir Persone met Gestremdhede het rede om trots te wees, ná die bekendmaking van die Suid-Afrikaanse groep vir die 2012 Paralimpiese Spele in Londen. Twintig klublede sal van 29 Augustus tot 9 September in aksie wees by die Spele. Hier is van die klublede van gaan deelneem (agter) Hilton Langenhoven, Fanie van der Merwe, Anika Pretorius, Dyan Buis, Marius Stander, Arnu Fourie en Ilse Hayes; (voor) dr.

Maties in SA Paralimpiese span TWINTIG atlete van die Universiteit Stellenbosch (US) sal lid wees van die SuidAfrikaanse span wat aan die 2012 Paralimpiese Spele in Londen gaan deelneem. Die Spele is van 29 Augustus tot 9 September. Die Suid-Afrikaanse Sportkonfederasie en Olimpiese Komitee (SASKOK) het verlede week die Suid-Afrikaanse groep bekendgemaak. Altesame 62 atlete van Suid-Afrika sal na Londen reis om daar aan verskeie sportkodes by die Paralimpiese Spele deel te neem. Die

Paralimpiese Spele volg op die Olimpiese Spele wat op 27 Julie begin. Die Suid-Afrikaanse groep gaan aan sewe verskillende sportkodes deelneem, naamlik atletiek, fietsry, perdry, roei, swem, rolstoelbasketbal en rolstoel-tennis. Van Maties sal Dyan Buis, Charl du Toit, Arnu Fourie, Ilse Hayes, Hilton Langenhoven, Anrune Liebenberg, Jan Nehro (met die gids Duane Fortuin), Jonathan Ntutu, Anika Pretorius, Zanele Situ, Marius Stander en Fanie van der Merwe, almal lid wees van die SA atletiekspan van 25 lede.

Hul afrigters Suzanne Ferreira en Karin le Roux sal die groep vergesel. Roxy Burns, Madré Carinus, Stuart McCreadie en Ernst van Dyk sal Maties verteenwoordig as lede van die fietsryspan. Hul bestuurder, Mike Burns, gaan ook saam toer. Die Matie-swemmers wat aan die Paralimpiese Spele deelneem, is Renette Bloem, Charl Bouwer, Achmat Hassiem en Hendri Herbst. Karin Hugo (afrigter) en Eeden Meyer vergesel die swemmers. Die fisioterapeut Greshne Davids sal saam met die span gaan as deel van die algemene

spanbestuur. Ferreira het gesê dit is ’n ongelooflike groot voorreg om ingesluit te word in die Suid Afrikaanse span, des te meer as dit ’n gebeurtenis is wat net elke vier jaar plaasvind. “Paralimpiese sport is nie meer net gefokus op rehabilitasie soos wat aanvanklik beoog is nie, maar dit is ’n sport waarin lande atlete ondersteun en die mededinging op ’n topvlak is.” Volgens haar is die Matie-atlete baie opgewonde oor dié geleentheid waarop sommige van hulle hulself al vir vier jaar lank voorberei.

Child safety during the holidays The winter school holidays are around the corner and, compared to the summer break, it is a much bigger challenge to keep the kids entertained this time of year.

HAVE YOU SEEN HIM? The Stellenbosch SAPS is looking for this man who can assist them in the investigation of an attempted rape that took place on 7 May this year. According to police spokesperson Lt Natalie Martin, the victim was given a lift by her attacker after she returned from a local pub. The suspect then said that he had to stop at his office and invited her in as it was cold outside. He then attempted to rape her. Anyone with information regarding the incident can call WO Zimri at 082 463 7214 or 021 809 9168 / 5.

For parents who are unable to take time off work or leave their children in the care of someone they trust, any school holiday brings with it the added stress of constantly wondering if your child is safe. Rob Dale, Managing Director of ADT Security in the Western Cape has some general tips which parents can pass on to their kids. He says it is important that parents make sure youngsters know to keep all entry and exit doors locked and that no-one is to enter the home without their permission: “If you have a home security system installed teach them how to activate and de-ac-

tivate it and how and when to use other security devices like panic buttons. Make a list of important telephone numbers – including the 10111 number - and show them that it has been placed near the telephone for use in emergencies.” Dale says there are also basic rules you can teach your child to follow if they are leaving home to walk to a friend’s house for a visit. “If you usually drive your child to the home of a friend who lives in the same neighbourhood, rather walk the route with them before they have to do it on their own. Explain that it is better to walk a slightly longer route down familiar streets, where there is more activity, than taking short-cuts across fields or deserted areas. “On the day, let them call you when they leave home and once they have arrived at their destination. Advise your children that

Check tyres regularly INFORMATION NEEDED: The Stellenbosch SAPS are investigating a case of rape which occurred in the Jan Marais Nature Reserve on 23 December 2011. According to reports, a young woman was alone when she was approached by a man asking for money. She said that she did not have any and tried to run away. However, he caught up with her and raped her. The man (above) who is between 25 and 30 years old, about 1,65 m tall and has shaved eyebrows, can be of assistance in the investigation. Anyone with information can call the investigating officer Const LD February at 082 469 7214 or 021 809 9168 / 5.

RESEARCH has shown that damaged and badly maintained tyres are one of the main factors that contribute to accidents in South Africa. Tyres are the most critical safety component on a vehicle as it affects traction, handling, steering, stability and braking. “Drivers often forget that only correctly inflated tyres can do their job properly, delivering the right level of handling performance,” says Lize Hayward, Goodyear Group Public Relations Manager. “Drivers frequently make one of three classical mistakes: either they don’t check their tyre pressure before departure, or alternatively, they check the pressure when the tyre is warm, which results in incorrect readings, or they put it at a level that does not take into account the weight of the car - empty or fully loaded, it makes a difference.”

Cloetesville SAPD is op soek na dié twee mans wat hulle moontlik van hulp kan wees in hul ondersoek rakende ’n gewapende roof. Die een is in sy twintigs, lig van kleur en sowat 1,67m lank.

Properly inflated tyres are necessary to keep the vehicle’s handling performance at optimal levels, especially its cornering and braking abilities. “When a tyre is under-inflated, the car’s weight is concentrated on the outside part of the tyre tread, increasing pressure on the tyre’s side-walls (the tyres’ shoulders as we call them), rather than being spread out evenly across the width of the tyre.” Tyres may lose up to 0,2 bar air pressure in a three-month time period. Tyre pressure should be checked regularly at least once a month. Drivers should also make sure they don’t set off on tyres that are in a bad condition. “Check your tyres’ tread wear before you depart. Is it still of sufficient depth? Is the tread worn evenly? Also check the tyre’s sidewalls for any damages”, adds Hayward.

Die tweede man blyk in sy veertigs te wees, is sowat 1,84 meter lank en slank.

if they do happen to find themselves in an unfamiliar street, they should look out for a police or security officer to help them and never to accept advice or a ride from a stranger.” With shopping malls also far busier than usual during holidays, Dale says the risk of your child wandering away from you and becoming lost in the hustle and bustle is higher. In a bid to keep them safe he advises that – as a general safety precaution – you help your child memorise their name, surname, home address and a contact number for at least one parent: “Teach them that if they become separated from you they should immediately look for mall security and give them that information. If your child is readily able to give them these details, the time taken to track down a parent can be reduced dramatically.”

Man (21) killed A Kayamandi (21) man was killed last week after he was allegedly caught stealing. According to Lt Natalie Martin, the Stellenbosch police spokesperson, the man had broken into a home in Kayamandi and stole a DVD player. “As he was leaving, holding the DVD player, the homeowner returned. A fight ensued and the alleged thief took out a knife and attacked the homeowner. “They fought and the young man was stabbed in the chest. He died on the scene.” A 44-year-old man was arrested for murder.

Theft thwarted THE quick response by a passing armed security officer, lead to the arrest of a burglar. According to Lt Natalie Martin, the victim of an alleged burglary was asleep in her home in Simonsberg Street in the early hours of 19 June. “She was called by ADT who informed her that her alarm had gone off. She heard someone running outside her house. A CSS Tactical response vehicle, which was passing by, saw a man running from the house. They followed the suspect and found the victim’s handbag in his possession. A 27-year-old man was arrested for housebreaking and theft.”

Another garden for Rietenbosch Primary SOYISO MALITI CLOETESVILLE’S Rietenbosch Primary School is fast becoming a green sanctuary. They have been handed their second garden in as many months. This came courtesy of cellphone network giants MTN’s 21 Days Yellow Care initiative, which ran from 1 to 21 June. MTN operates in 21 African countries, hence the project’s title. MTN staff created a vegetable garden at Rietenbosch. Their spokesperson, Lache Woldon-Sa-

muels explained the project’s objectives. “This year’s theme is education for all. One of our beneficiaries is the Early Education Centre here in Cloetesville. We’re planting vegetables and the produce of the garden will feed the children of the centre.” The MTN foundation has also donated cooking equipment to the centre. The Cloetesville park also got a “make-over” from MTN staff. Last month, the Stellenbosch Municipality handed over a garden to Rietenbosch, which can be seen next to the main entrance.

HealthNet­vorm vir vervoer  WES-KAAP se departement van gesondheid in die Wynlanddistrik het pas bekend gemaak dat ’n goedkeuringsvorm van 1 Julie 2012 af voltooi sal moet word vir pasiënte om toegang tot die HealthNet-pasiëntvervoerdiens te verkry. Die HealthNet-bus bied ’n vervoerdiens aan pasiënte wat ’n afspraak het by ’n fasiliteit wat buite die gewone fasiliteite is wat hulle gewoonlik gebruik. Pasiënte wat ’n mediese noodgeval het, moet steeds 10177 bel om ’n ambulans te ontbied. Weens die hoë getal pasiënte en die beperkte getal sitplekke beskikbaar, word dit van alle pasiënte wat van die HealthNet-busdiens gebruik maak, verwag om ’n goedkeuringsvorm te hê wat deur die

verwysende gesondheidswerker uitgereik word. Aangesien daar in die verlede misbruik van die HealthNet-busstelsel gemaak is, kon pasiënte wat afsprake gehad het by verafgeleë fasiliteite nie sitplek op die bus kry nie en afsprake is gemis. Voortaan sal slegs pasiënte in besit van die nuwe goedkeuringsvorm op die bus toegelaat word. Pasiënte moet seker maak dat die gesondheidswerker wat hulle verwys, hulle van die volgende voorsien: ) die ondertekende goedkeuringsvorm; ) die afspraakdatum en die vertrektye van vervoer en; ) die naam van die fasiliteit waar die afspraak is.

Wetenskapsfiksie:   skryf nou joú storie in HET jy ’n wetenskapsfiksie-storie wat wag om gelees te word? LitNet Akademies Kuberklas bied ’n wetenskapfiksie-kortverhaalkompetisie aan vir leerlinge tussen graad 10 en 12 met groot pryse op die spel en sodoende tieners se belangstelling in wetenskap en tegnologie te prikkel. Die kortverhale moet van 700 tot 1 000 woorde wees waarin alternatiewe of futuristiese wêrelde uitgebeeld word. Alle stories moet gebaseer word op bestaande wetenskaplike, mediese en tegnologiese uitvindsels of teorieë. Moontlike temas sluit in – maar is nie beperk nie tot – die volgende: kloning/ genetiese manipulasie, evolusie, voedselproduksie, ruimtevaart, ekologiese rampe/globale verwarming, die Internet en sosiale media soos Facebook en Twitter, rekenaarspeletjies of virtuele realiteit, robotte en mediese epidemies en virusse. Wetenskapfiksie-skrywers spekuleer graag oor huidige of toekomstige veranderinge in wetenskap en tegnologie en beeld wêrelde uit wat op die een of ander manier (hoe gering ook al) van ons werklikheid verskil. Dié ander wêrelde mag wel vreemd wees, maar die wetenskapfiksie-narratief is noodwendig geanker in die sosiale konteks waaruit dit voortspruit. Hierdie genre word dikwels gebruik om kommentaar te lewer op die probleme en ongeregtighede van ’n bepaalde

samelewing. Die beoordelaars vir die kompetisie is Koos Kombuis, die gewilde sanger, skrywer en wetenskapfiksie-entoesias en Lauren Beukes, ’n bekende Suid-Afrikaanse wetenskapfiksie-skrywer en wenner van die Arthur C. Clarke-prys vir wetenskapfiksie. Fanie Viljoen, bekroonde kinder- en jeugverhaalskrywer van onder meer die gewilde Nova-wetenskapfiksiereeks en Elzette Steenkamp, LitNet Akademies se produksiebestuurder en ’n kenner op die gebied van Suid-Afrikaanse spekulatiewe is die ander beoordeelaars. Die algehele wenner staan die kans om R3 000 kontant, R3 000 vir sy/haar skool, ’n iPad 3, 16G met WiFi geborg deur BURO en ’n Fanie Viljoen-boekpakkie van Lapa-uitgewers te wen. Die naaswenner kom in aanmerking om R2 000 en ’n Fanie Viljoen-boekpakkie van LAPA-uitgewers te wen en die derde plek behels R1 000 sowel as ’n Fanie Viljoen-boekpakkie van Lapa-uitgewers. Alle inskrywings sal op LitNet Akademies Kuberklas gepubliseer word. Die sluitingsdatum vir inskrywings is 28 September. Inskrywingsvorms is aanlyn beskikbaar by www.litnet.co.za of besoek hulle op Facebook. Vir nadere besonderhede bel Elzette Steenkamp, LitNet Akademies se produksiebestuurder, by 021 886 5169 of e-pos elzette@litnet.co.za.

Stress strikes children too LIKE grown-ups, children also suffer from stress. Here are some valuable tips for parents to help their children deal with stress: ) Listen to your child: Sometimes the best thing parents can do is just to be there to listen. Children want to feel independent. They don’t always need or want advice. Just knowing that they have someone to talk to can be reassuring for them. Talking about their problems can give them a chance to hear them out loud, which can help them come up with the answer on their own. ) Offer encouragement to your children: Let your children know that you are always there for him / her. Offer encouragement and reassurance without being negative or judgmental. ) Be a role model: If you are noticeably anxious, depressed, or have a major melt-down during stressful times, then odds are that your children will have the same reactions when they are stressed. How you cope with stress can also harm your credibility in your child’s eyes. If they see you freaking out when you are

www.olx.co.za | www.eikestadnuus.co.za

under stress, then they are not going to trust any suggestions or advice you give them about stress. ) Provide stability to your child: Stability at home can help alleviate some of the stress on children. Constant changes can add to the child’s stress level. Try to be consistent in discipline and your daily routines. ) Teach your child behaviour which can decrease stress: There are things that can be done to help alleviate stress. Children see, children do, therefore walk your talk by being a role model for your child. You should stay positive, exercise and eat healthy foods, limit your caffeine consumption, and not use drugs or alcohol. You should also have a good support group and positive friends as well as do fun activities when you are stressed like listening to music, reading a book, or going for a walk. If the stress continues or worsens you may need to take your child to see a professional. Stress can lead to drug and alcohol abuse, self injury, depression, or suicidal thoughts. If you see any signs of this behaviour, seek professional help for your child immediately.

Zanele verbeter SA rekord ZANELE Situ van die MatiesHelderberg Sportklub vir Persone met Gestremdhede het onlangs in Engeland haar SuidAfrikaanse rekord in spiesgooi verbeter. Situ en verskeie ander Paralimpiese atlete is tans in Europa waar hulle besig is met voorbereiding vir die Paralimpiese Spele van 29 Augustus tot 9 September in Londen. Karin le Roux van Maties is Situ se afrigter en ook deel van die groep wat tans in Europa toer. Die atlete het aan drie byeenkomste – BWAA in Stoke Mandeville,

die Duitse nasionale byeenkoms en ook die Franse kampioenskapsbyeenkoms – deelgeneem. Situ het by Stoke Mandeville (Brittanje) ’n persoonlike beste afstand spies van 16,54m gegooi en so haar huidige SA rekord van 16,20m verbeter. In Duitsland het sy ’n afstand van 16,34m gegooi en ook daar die goue medalje gewen. Situ het SA vir die eerste keer vertoonwoordig by die Sydney Paralimpiese Spele in 2000, waar sy ’n goue medalje in die sittende spiesgooi (klas 54) gewen het. Sy het op ’n jong ouderdom verlam geraak as

gevolg van TB van die werwelkolom. Sy woon die afgelope vier jaar op Stellenbosch en doen deeltydse werk by Suspi (Stellenbosch Universiteit se Sport Prestasie Instituut). Ander atlete van die klub wat aan die Paralimpiese Spele gaan deelneem, is Dyan Buis, Charl du Toit, Arnu Fourie, Ilse Hayes, Hilton Langenhoven, Anrune Liebenberg, Jan Nehro (gids: Duane Fortuin), Jonathan Ntutu, Anika Pretorius, Marius Stander, Fanie van der Merwe. Die afrigters is Le Roux en Suzanne Ferreira.
