The group of 36 students was very eager and excited and this prestigious event has attended by Stellenbosch Mayor Conrad Sidego.

Stay safe this holiday season As the festive season draws closer, Stellenbosch Watch has issued these safety tips for keeping your home safe from burglars this holiday. ) Burglar bars should be installed in conjunction with a burglar alarm system that is linked to a monitoring and armed response service. ) Reduce all heavy foliage near the garage entrance and front door to reduce the possibility of those spots being used as a hiding place. ) The front of the house should be visible to passersby so that any burglar or suspicious activity can be noted. ) Ensure all windows are fitted with ade-

quate locks or burglar bars that cover all glass. ) Fit suitable locks or bolts to all sliding doors to prevent them from being lifted off their tracks (the most common method used by burglars on sliding doors and windows). ) Install security gates on outside doors and keep them locked. ) When approaching your house entrance on foot or by car, make sure that it is safe to enter and that you have not been followed. Be on the lookout for persons loitering at the entrance, vehicles stopping when you slow down or anything out of the ordinary. ) Make sure that your gate and driveway are well lit after dark. Replace fused light bulbs immediately.

) Ensure that the number of your house is clearly visible at all times. ) At night, always lock perimeter doors and securely fasten windows. When retiring to bed, lock inter-leading doors of those rooms in the house that are not occupied. ) Conduct thorough background checks before employing anyone (permanent or casual workers). ) Know your neighbours and build a relationship of mutual trust and support. When going away on holiday inform them, or make arrangements for your house to be watched and unusual activity to be noticed. ) Do not leave curtains open at night as this allows observation into the house.

) Do not go outside alone to investigate at night. Rather switch off all lights and open curtains to allow you to see what is occurring outside. ) Never leave any important documents in your car, including cheque books, bank statements, invoices, telephone accounts, credit cards, keys, remote controls or personal post, or anything that may provide your personal details. ) Photograph and maintain a register of your valuable items, with serial numbers, where applicable. Marking valuable items makes them easy to identify if they are stolen and may even help the police to arrest the perpetrators.

Prepare for fire season

Children play in the water in Tennantville to ward off the summer heat.

Keep kids safe around water The festive season and warm summer weather are here – a time when kids love nothing more than to spend time at the swimming pool or beach. Netcare 911 operations director, Peter Feurstein, says that tragically Netcare 911 is always called out to a large number of incidents involving child drownings or near drownings over the summer months. The sea, rivers, swimming pools and even the home can pose a threat to the safety of small children, he says. According to Netcare 911 medical director, Dr Anchen Laubscher, drownings are one of the top causes of unnatural deaths among children in South Africa. She points out that most drownings and near-drownings occur around the home and involve children under the age of five. “Young children are extremely vulnerable around water. Babies can

drown in just a few centimetres of water. It is therefore not only swimming pools and rivers that pose a threat to them but also potentially baths, toilets, water buckets and washbasins. “A recent case involved a threeyear-old toddler who had a near drowning experience in a shallow pond that was just a few centimetres deep. “His parents found him face down in the pond. Fortunately they gave him life-saving CPR and he made a full recovery.” Laubscher advises parents to remove or safeguard any water around the home that could potentially pose a danger to children. ) Swimming pools and ponds should be fenced off to ensure that children do not have access to them. ) Pools and ponds should also be covered with safety nets. ) Young children should always ne closely monitored as they wander

off and fall into swimming pools in the blink of an eye. Even if they are good swimmers, children should not be allowed to swim in the sea, a dam, a river or a pool unsupervised. Shalen Ramduth, head of the Netcare 911 School of Emergency and Critical Care (SECC), says it is extremely empowering to be able to intervene when a loved one is vulnerable and urges all parents to learn first aid, particularly CPR. In children, as in adults, when the heart has failed, CPR can keep the brain supplied with oxygen until an advanced life support paramedic can take over treatment. He says the SECC provides a variety of accredited first aid and CPR training courses at various levels including CPR for family and friends. These are offered to schools, businesses, organisations, old age homes and any private individuals who are interested in learning first aid.

With all the fun that comes with the summer sun, there are also some added dangers during this season, which is very conducive to fires. Volunteer Wildfire Services, which works under the authority of SANParks and CapeNature, would like to offer basic wildfire safety tips for the months ahead. ) If you are going into the mountains check the Fire Danger Index (FDI) available at www.weathersa.co.za. ) When hiking or walking always carry at least 2l of water. ) If you spot a wildfire, make a plan, don’t panic. ) Phone for help, alert authorities to your presence. ) Never run uphill or up a slope from a wildfire. ) If possible, move sideways towards the flatter ground. ) Wildfires move with the wind, so move away and against the wind. ) Look for anything that could help shield you from the fire’s heat. ) If caught in a wildfire, look for natural breaks in vegetation such as cleared or rocky areas, depressions or large bodies of water. Clear away any vegetation you can before the fire arrives. ) Get into those areas, get low to the ground and breath through a natural fabric. ) On a mountainside, the back side is safer. Avoid canyons (kloofs), natural “chimneys” and saddles. ) If a road is nearby, lie face down along the road and cover yourself with a shield that will not melt or burn. ) Discard any non-cotton clothing as this could catch fire or melt onto you. ) After the fire passes remember danger is not over. Burned trees fall without warning. ) After a fire, the burnt ground and debris is still hot and can burn you. ) Never leave a campfire unat-

tended, always completely extinguish the fire before sleeping or leaving. ) Make sure camp fires or braais are a safe distance from any flammable material. ) Never braai or make camp fires in prohibited areas. ) Never throw cigarettes or matches from a car window. ) Never make bonfires in windy conditions. The Western Cape government provides the following tips for safety in the home: ) Keep a well-maintained fire extinguisher in your house, and know how to use it. ) If you have a garden hose, keep it rolled up and ready in case of a fire. ) Where possible, have more than one exit from your house. ) Have an escape plan, and make sure that the whole family knows the plan. ) Do not park in the way of a fire hydrant (and remind your neighbours and visitors to do the same). Anyone can get involved with the Volunteer Wildfire Services and help curb wildfires. Visit www.vws.co.za for their next training dates.

Wildfires are common throughout the fire season.

Rieldansers gaan die stof laat staan in Paarl Op Saterdag 7 Desember gaan daar weer gedans word dat die stof letterlik staan tydens die jaarlikse ATKV-Rieldansfinaal wat in die Liquifruit-Amfiteater op Paarlberg plaasvind. Rieldansers van so ver as Loeriesfontein in die Boesmanland kom wys hul staal teen die beste rieldansgroepe van regoor die land, en soos altyd beloof dié geleentheid om ’n jolige aand onder die sterre te wees. Al gewonder waar die uitdrukking “dans dat die stof so staan” vandaan kom? Dan móét jy kom kyk – ’n rieldanser se vermoë word onder meer beoordeel aan hoe hoog hy of sy die stofwolke kan opdans. Die rieldans word beskou as die oudste danssoort in Suider Afrika, en die hedendaagse vorm van die dans kan direk na die Khoisan, die eerste bewoners van die suidpunt van Afrika, herlei word. Die Khoisan het die danse in sirkel om ’nvuur gedans om ’ngoeie oes of jagtog te vier, en baie van die hedendaagse rieldanse word vandag steeds in ’n sirkel gedoen. In Nama staan die dans as die khapara bekend, maar die naam rieldans is afgelei van Skotse immigrante se “reel dance”. Die riel is veral tussen die 1940’s en 1960’s deur die werkersklas gedans, en hedendaagse rieldansers probeer om iets van daardie era vas te vang in hul kostuums. Weens onder meer verstedeliking en die aanhang van die Amerikaanse popkultuur het die riel byna uitgesterf, maar danksy die ATKV se ingryping en veral die werk van Elias Nel, het dié tradisionele dansvorm weer herleef. Die eerste ATKV Rieldanskompetisie is in 2006 aangebied, en dié kunsvorm gaan sedertdien van krag tot krag. Jong rieldansertjies het die afgelope paar jaar onder meer by ’n amptelike parlementsopening gedans, en vroeër vanjaar het die huidige junior kampioene, die Betjies van Betjiesfontein, selfs by die luisterryke Huisgenoot Skou-

spel opgetree. Die riel beeld dikwels die liefdespel tussen man en vrou uit, maar diere en voëls word ook deur dans uitgebeeld: ’n volstruis wat vlerksleep, meerkatte, ’n bobbejaan se streke, ’n pronkende springbok. En dan is daar natuurlik die askoek. In dié dans, wat teen ’n ysingwekkende pas gedans word, word die regtervoet gedurende die dans vinnig en sekuur bokant die linkerknie geplaas sonder dat die danser sy balans verloor. Vernuftige voetwerk en hope energie is nodig om die riel goed te dans, en daarvan is daar elke jaar volop by die Rieldans-finale. Dansers van ses tot sestig wys hul passies en ding mee vir die prysgeld en trofeë wat deur die ATKV geborg word. Benewens die pryse en prysgeld vir die dansers, is daar ook twee spesiale pryse (beste rieldansmusikant en beste Afrikaanse rieldansliedjie) op die spel. Daar is ’n junior en senior afdeling, en in vanjaar se junior afdeling ding die heersende kampioene, die Betjies van Betjiesfontein, mee teen Korbeel (Carnarvon), die Calvinia Sitstappers, die Nuwe Graskoue Trappers (Wupperthal) en Rapystone (Fraserburg). In die senior afdeling sal Witzenberg, die 2012-kampioene, hul slag moet wys teen die Grasvlei Grastrappers (Wupperthal), die Suurrug Suurtrappers (Wupperthal), die Boesmanland Bitterbessies (Loeriesfontein) en Griekwa Ratelgat (Vredendal). Moenie hierdie heerlike kultuurgeleentheid vir oud en jonk misloop nie! Kaartjies kos R60 vir volwassenes, en R20 vir kinders, en is te koop by die ATKV-streekkantoor in Ryneveldstraat, Stellenbosch (021 886 7156/7162) of by die Cultivaria-kantoor in Hoofweg, Paarl (021 872 9754) Hekke open om 16:00 en die kompetisie begin om 19:00.

MFM 92.6 donates R6 550 to Animal Welfare Society On Friday 29 November, MFM 92.6 announced live on air at 11:45 that a donation of R6 550 would be made to the Stellenbosch Animal Welfare Society as part of the conclusion of an 11 week campaign entitled TRADING UP on the AM2PM show. Initiated by show hosts Ella van Heerden and Eduard De Kock, the campaign started with a branded coffee mug, which the presenters sought to trade up to the public for an item of higher value every Friday on the show. The ultimate goal was to end up with a product of sufficient value to auction, with all proceeds from the final sale going to the Animal Welfare Society of Stellenbosch. Between 13 September and 8 November seven trades took place on air and in the end the coffee mug transformed into a Bladez Jet 125cc scooter valued at R9 000, courtesy of the Marlee du Preez and the team at Mad Mac’s Motorcycles in Somerset West. At 13:00 on 22 November the online auction for the scooter concluded, with Danel Rossouw as the

highest bidder at R6 550. “May the money bring as much joy to all the animals as this scooter will bring to me! Thank you to the AM2PM team for this great venture over the last few weeks,” she commented on the show’s Facebook page after the announcement. Michael Bossenger, programme manager at MFM, added: “This has been a really exciting campaign for us, and one the presenters were very passionate about. We are looking to tailor other similar campaigns to this model in 2014, in an attempt to always continue to give back to the community.” MFM 92.6 would like to extend a thank you to Mad Mac’s Motorcycles, Danel Rossouw and the AM2PM team for their involvement in the overall success of the campaign. The station would also like to extend a thank you to the community of Stellenbosch for their participation in the trades throughout the campaign, which ensured that a sizeable donation was possible.

HELDERBERG HARRIER’S HELPING HAND: The Helderberg Harriers-running club recently got together after one of their runs and handed out hampers to show their support to healthy living.

Advocacy group demands action to end genderbased violence Gender-rights groups have said southern African region is in a state of emergency. Governments across the region must to act now to reduce the levels of gender-based violence (GBV) to guarantee women’s human rights.

OLYMPIAN JOINS SONGO: Olympian triathlete Richard Murray (left) rode the first day of the mountain bike stage race the Origin of Trails with some of the kids of the Kayamandi charity, songo.info.

All the kids from songo.info with Richard Murray (right) at the start of the Origin of Trails.

This requires a holistic approach, which includes constitutional and legal measures, social, political and economic empowerment, political leadership, and a fundamental change of attitudes from the bedroom to the boardroom. This is the key message of Gender Links (GL), a southern African NGO that coordinates the SADC Gender

Protocol Alliance at the start of the 16 Days of Activism. The campaign runs until 10 December, International Human Rights Day. The largest percentage of women who have experienced some form of violence in their lifetime, live in Limpopo (77%), followed by Gauteng (51%), Western Cape (45%) and 36% in KwaZulu Natal. These are the findings of baseline studies conducted by GL and partner organisations. “For us, the campaign to end violence is a 365 day campaign,” said GL chief executive Colleen Lowe Morna. “However, we will use the political and media at-

tention accorded to the 16 Days of Activism to raise awareness on the extent, causes, effects, and efforts to end GBV as highlighted in the various studies we have conducted. “Through the launch of various country barometers on progress towards achieving the 28 targets of the SADC Gender Protocol, we will send out the message that GBV does not occur in a vacuum.” GL commemorates the campaign under the banner: “Peace begins at home,” which recognises that the highest form of violence women experience is perpetrated by their partners. – www.genderlinks.org.za

Aan die begin van die jaar is die klub genader om ’n vrouespan in sy struktuur te inkorporeer want die klub se prioriteit is om spelers op alle vlakke te ontwikkel tot hulle volle potensiaal Die afrigters, Nazeem Jooste en Ruben November se wenresep het bygedra tot die indrukwekkende spel wat die spelers gedurende die seisoen opgedis het en Pniel het ook sy eerste vroue Springbokrugbyspeler opgelewer in Andrea Mentoor. Die ondersteuning van die bestuur, spelers en ondersteuners het ’n geweldige impak op al die spelers gehad. Vier van die klub se spelers is onderskeidelik in die Westelike Provinsie se vyftien- en sewesspanne ingesluit. Hulle was Mentoor, Theresa Ruiters, Abigail Jantjie en Lee Ann Moses. Van die spelers het hulself bemagtig deur kursusse by te woon wat WP Rugby aangebied het. Met die oog op voorbereiding vir die volgende seisoen, nooi die klub graag belangstellendes uit om aan te sluit by die span. Die spanbestuurder kan gekontak word by 071 142 3038
