A number of reasons to celebrate
amanzimtoti This week ONLINE
MANY people either look forward to the festive pe riod and begin their countdown to Christmas in Oc tober, while others are left running for the hills to avoid the ‘silliness’ that comes with the season. As we get ready to wind down and take a breath er, we decided to reflect on some of the wonderful reasons to celebrate the year that was. Yes, we can talk about some of the lowlights as well (no pun on the word ‘lights’), but that would not be very festive at all. The team at the Fever has had a wonderful year and has shared some truly remarkable memories with you. We’ve had an actionpacked year from meeting wonderful individuals who are slowly changing their communities one step at a time to covering campaigns that shows a proactive community who are willing to fight for their beloved home towns. To those people who are continuously going the
extra mile to serve others, we would like to salute you and thank you for allowing us to share your sto ries. This year South Africans voted hoping for the best – many are now glued to the parliament ses sion coverage because you never know what to ex pect. In 2015 we will be joining the queues for the byelections and once again, hoping for positive change. We know we live in a beautiful city and another reason to be a proud Durbanite is Durban has been voted an official new Seven Wonder City of the world. The picturesque beaches, rolling hills and breathtaking skyline together with a host of won derful inhabitants, sets us apart from the rest of South Africa. After 40 years, the Miss World title is held by a South African.

Rolene Strauss was crowned Miss World at the weekend and now features in a long list of remarka ble women who continue to make a difference to the countries they live in and the world. South Africans also took time through out the year to remember Nelson Mandela and do their bit to fulfill his legacy. It’s been a year since his death and many ques tioned the stability and patriotism of South Afri cans. The good news is, it seems as if communities are now more united than ever. Many believe his spirit still lives on calling it a sprinkling of ‘Madiba magic’. Clearly South Africans will continue to make great strides despite the negative news that some times comes to the fore.

Linking education to ensure food security >> Rotary International theme is ‘Serving Humanity’
HIS year’s theme for Rotary International is “Serving Humanity”, which captures the essence of Rotary and its work over more than a century. Rotarians realise that the purpose of life is to serve humanity with a humane consciousness that will propel a deeper sense of love, peace, joy, truth, compassion, fairness and benefit to all in a world challenged by conflict, diseases, poverty and turmoil. When the Rotary Club of Amanzimtoti announced its plans, investment and commitments to early childhood development (ECD) at its 50th anniversary in June 2015, the aim was to assist in the development of the competence of early childhood teachers to contribute to the holistic development of the child as an outcome. As club members became more involved in the challenging and exciting opportunity that early childhood education presents, their interest deepened to incorporate opportunities for environmental education that supports sustainable living, health, food security and livelihood. They believe that providing opportunities for children to be responsible towards the environment and to care for others begins at a young age. Not only does it benefit the child,
Rotary International and WESSA are joining hands in educating pre schoolers about the environment. Participating are (from left) Dion Ford, Iris Canham (MoP), Bob Skippings (WESSA), Yvonne Skippings and Britt Snoek (Khanya Hospice Dutch volunteer). but it has an impact on the family, community, environment and global community. This contributes to a ripple effect of humans serving humanity. The club is looking to roll out ECD training and competence development to five rural ECD schools within the vicinity of Amanzimtoti. The schools will need to incorpo-
rate gardening projects and to ensure that environmental education is part of the daily programme. “The benefit of gardening projects is that it teaches children where food comes from and develops their scientific and environmental awareness. It also encourages healthier food choices and improves learning skills,” said Iris Canham, who is heading the

In case there’s an

Rotary project for ECD. “We want teachers in ECD to teach children the interrelationship and dependence of all living things. We are concerned about society becoming too reliable on instant gratification and losing the essence of Ubuntu. We believe that environmental education helps children learn and connect with the real world, it teaches patience, responsibility, to appreciate the natural world and appreciate interdependence,” said Canham. The roll-out of the ECD training began with Mother of Peace (MoP) PrePrimary School in Illovo. Rotary Club Amanzimtoti President Aneska Dupont invited WESSA, the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, which works with schools and teachers to support environmental education to visit the project that has started at MoP. Rotary is seeking to collaborate with WESSA on environmental education for young pupils. “We believe environmental education is a process. To get children interested or to teach ‘green issues’ children must understand their own environment first, and what better way than first understanding the garden and the opportunities for learning this presents. They must learn about local biodiversity. The permaculture garden at MoP provides an ecological design process and a food producing ecosystem that will spark interest and understanding,” said Canham. To encourage parent and community participation, workshops to equip people with skills that will aid a more food secure nation will be held at MoP, Illovo. For more information or to sponsor this vital education programme, contact Canham on 031 916 2299 or email@example.com - Supplied.

Toyota notches up safety for Avanza >> Avanza is derived from Italian word ‘avanzata’, which means advance
HE Toyota Avanza has come a long way since its initial introduction as a comfortable and affordable multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that moved many people from one place to another. True to its name (Avanza is derived from an Italian word “avanzata”, which means advance), the Avanza has – over the years – evolved into a more sophisticated MPV that boasts a lot passenger-like qualities. Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) is proud to announce the addition of
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) – including Brake Assist System and Traction Control – as a standard safety feature on all Avanza models. Anti-Lock Breaking System (ABS) is standard across the range. The latest safety enhancements come exactly a year after the addition of Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), three-point centre seatbelt, driver and passenger airbags, ISOFIX restraint points and centre headrests for the second seating row. “The current generation Avanza
has been remodelled continuously, with a variety of improvements in style and capabilities, since its launch in 2012. While it has become smarter on the inside, its exterior looks have not been neglected. The Avanza is definitely more refined, but it’s still the multi-faceted and multi-functional MPV that our customers fell in love with a decade ago,” says Kerry Roodt, General Manager of Marketing Communications at Toyota South Africa Motors. The interior of the current genera-
Rugby legend to captain Pajero Legend MITSUBISHI SA has brought legendary value back to the market by introducing limited special edition models of the Pajero Legend II, and in an at-
tempt of a superb charge-down, Mitsubishi SA now also sponsors Springbok lock Victor Matfield. The Pajero Legend II builds on the
success and global celebration of Pajero’s impressive motorsport history of 12 world-record Dakar Rally victories, of which seven had been won in

tion Avanza feels more like a passenger car compared to its predecessor. This was achieved courtesy of a lowered instrument panel which has improved driver visibility and a centrally located cluster. Occupant luggage space was also addressed and all three rows have ample legroom and kneeroom. The extra space was created by adjusting the shape and placement of the seatbacks and door trim. All those who have been inside the current model would have observed that the driver is treated to a revised instrument cluster, adopting striking amber hued inserts, a silver outer bezel and white night-time illumination for greater visibility and user friendliness. All models have an Eco indicator to provide feedback to the driver on economical driving – thereby contributing to even better fuel economy. Despite these improvements, the Avanza has always maintained its status as a value for money proposition. While sales in the MPV segment have reduced significantly over the years locally, the popularity of the Avanza has
consecutive years. Braam Faul, national marketing manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa, said: “We chose to partner with Victor because we found an integrity that we could relate to. We share values of rectitude and toughness and are always striving to improve our performance.” Matfield began his Springbok career at the age of 24, and was widely regarded the best lock in world rugby during his decade of playing for the Springboks. He has played more green and gold rugby than any player. Matfield has captained the Vodacom Bulls to three Vodacom Superugby titles in 2007, 2009 and 2010, the Tri-Nations in 2004 and 2009 and the Rugby World Cup in 2007. In 2008 he was inducted into the University of Pretoria Hall of Fame. Initially retiring after the 2011 World Cup, Matfield made a comeback at the start of the 2014 season, signing a contract with the Bulls. After the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Matfield joined and ended his rugby ca-
not waned. In fact, average monthly sales are at a laudable 400 units. Customers are well aware of Toyota’s traditional strengths of QDR (quality, durability, reliability) when purchasing Avanza. The peace of mind that comes with owning any model in the Toyota range cannot be understated. For example, in the Kinsely Report, the Avanza has always performed strongly by either winning the category or finishing second. The report is an independent reference on parts’ pricing and is intended to assist motorists seeking knowledge on the cost involved to service, maintain and repair a vehicle. The Avanza came second in this year’s report (2016 Kinsey Report). The Avanza range offers customers three grades to choose from depending on their individual needs. Forming the starting point of the line-up with a strong value focus, is the S grade model, which features power windows, remote central locking, power steering, a centrally mounted console box, intermittent windscreen wipers and an anti-theft system as standard. The SX grade brings touches of added comfort and style with colour-coded exterior mirrors with power operation, a refreshing airconditioner system and vanity mirror for the front passenger. Forming the flagship of the Avanza range is the TX grade, which is equipped with sporty ‘switchblade’ 15 inch alloy wheels and adorned with chrome treatment on the front ‘brow’. A rear mounted roof spoiler adds a stylish touch to the profile. Providing the in-car entertainment for family road trips is a 4-speaker audio system with USB input for added convenience. A multi-information display provides feedback on various elements to the driver. Lastly, the 1.3-litre Panel Van remains part of the line-up, providing a perfect utility vehicle with great manoeuvrability, fuel efficiency and a cavernous cargo area. - Supplied.
reer at the English club Northampton Saints. Matfield is known for his size and athleticism, which cannot be overlooked. There’s tough, and then there’s playing 74 minutes of a brutal test match with a broken rib. That’s exactly what Matfield did in 2010 against England at Twickenham. Regarding his partnership with Mitsubishi SA, Matfield said: “I am proud to represent Mitsubishi and look forward to a successful working relationship. The off-road credentials of the Pajero Legend II are classleading and perfect for my family and Ito enjoy while being completely synonymous with Mitsubishi.” Matfield’s impressive career earned him numerous accolades, including that of the most capped Springbok in history, having played a record 127 Tests. Matfield is also a six-time nominee for the SA Rugby Player of the Year (2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011) and has been labelled the greatest lineout general in rugby history, and for good reason. - Supplied.
