The aftermath of the fire.

Community saves the day PHINDILE SHOZI >>Phindile.email@example.com
HE Upper Highway community responded in numbers to assist in dousing a fire that broke out at the Phezulu Safari Park last Friday night. According to the general manager of Phezulu Safari Park, Tristan Dicker-
son, the cause of the fire is under investigation. However, there are assumptions that the lightning from the storm last Friday could have contributed to it. He said that the curio shop at the safari park was gutted. “I can’t really say what started the fire but it’s just an assumption that it was the lightning,” said Dickerson.
He said that when he received news of the fire, he was in shock, and immediately called for assistance. “As I drove to the park I called for helped from every group I’m part of and their response was massive because they came in numbers,” said Dickerson. He said the community worked together in stopping the fire from
spreading across to other places. “The SA Community Crime Watch group co-ordinated the response of the fire brigade and neighbourhood watchers, while I co-ordinated the fire fighting at Phezulu,” he said. He explained how they worked together: “Fifty plus community members made a human chain between the pool and the curio shop.
“We held off the spread of fire to the Zulu village for 20 minutes until the fire brigade arrived.” “We were passing buckets of water down the chain and sending empty ones back. The community members are the heroes,” said Dickerson. He thanked all those who rallied at Phezulu, for their assistance.

OOTPRINT Foundation is an NGO consisting of a group of friends involved in mountain biking. The foundation started fundraising for upgrades to various crèches, which were: Entokozweni in Molweni, Sthandokuhle in KwaNgcolosi and Phindevuye in Marianhill. Footprint Foundation spokesperson Andrea Long said: “Over the years, we have added other crèches. We continue to help and support these crèches. We also work in KwaNyuswa, Umgeni River Valley, Embo and Shongweni Dam. We have been delivering 500 kgs of Future Life porridge to
these crèches to ensure the children receive at least one nutritious meal per day.” The foundation has had a number of achievements among its projects. One of them was the Entokozweni Crèche, where they raised funds by selling lumo socks to people. “We bought cooking items, nappies, wet wipes, toiletries, cooking utensils, a gas cooker, towels, face clothes, toys, an educational puzzle carpet, stationary, pigeon holes, etc. We supplied them with a constant number of items and we raised money to take the children on an outing to the Duck and Deck and raised funds to give them a Christmas party and presents.” The foundation, in partnership
with Clever Fox, built a library for the Sakhile Learning and Resource Centre. “We also offer homework facilities for school children in the area, as well as night classes for adults. We also run a crèche from there. We have installed a fully fitted and operational library with over 500 books. There are fiction books for fun stories, as well as Zulu story books for the little ones.” Sukumani Beading and Crafting women are trained, marketed and assisted to set up their self-sufficient business. “We have assisted the Yenzanathi NGO in KwaNyuswa with a soup kitchen, a vegetable planting scheme, crèche, the sponsorship of education for two orphaned girls, have provided
for gogos and orphaned children in their community, assisted with proposals and references for applications of funds, donated Future Life porridge, Christmas gifts for around 100120 children yearly and Subz panties and pads for teenage girls. “We have also assisted with the upgrade of the classrooms at Phindevuye Community Project. “We financed and fitted the bathroom and wash area there. We have furnished, fitted and supplied many items needed to start the crèche. The jungle gym was donated and the roofing between the two containers to give shade to the children has also been completed. We donated school track suits and T-shirts to pupils and sup-
plied food, clothing, nappies, etc. for the children.” The highlight of the year for the foundation is organising Christmas parties and presents for close to 500 children. Thomas More College donates over 300 love boxes every Christmas and supports the foundation with other donations. “Our objective is to help any person in need if we can. We believe in helping those who try to help themselves. If they are unable, we will help them or teach them the skills necessary to achieve this goal. We believe in education being the most important form of empowerment and we have a few children who we assist financially to attend school.”

Police officer says ‘education is power’ AS a young boy growing up under the care of his grandparents in Zibuse Village in Hammersdale, Constable Mbonisi Khomo (31) knew that he was destined to uplift and develop the community. “I have always been different and always wanted to do things differently,” he said. When Khomo was 14-years-old, he and his peers started Sakhisizwe Youth Organisation, an organisation that cleaned up the community and encouraged reading and drawing among the youth. Khomo is a now a communications officer at Hammersdale SAPS and passionate about community development, which saw him win the 2018 Man of the Year award during the National Excellence Awards which were held at the Durban ICC. In 2004, he started a youth desk. After completing matric, he was unable to continue with his studies and he then became a police reservist while working as a security guard. In 2012, he was employed as a permanent member of the SAPS. On top of his crime-fighting initiatives, he facilitated and spearheaded the establishment of Inhlanzani, a group of local farmers who contribute positively to the fight against stock

theft, and has introduced the practice of brand marking the livestock. He also facilitated a joint safety and security venture whereby Hammersdale police work with five security companies to fight crime. Khomo has launched five sub forums and has secured sponsorships from a NPC, a local company which provides the community policing structures and has provided good governance training to Community Policing Forum members. He is also a victim empowerment co-ordinator and has eight volunteers working with him who have helped about 1 000 clients. Khomo believes that education is power and he also believes that the value of education is in teaching and empowering the next person. Based on his belief, he taught volunteers all there is to know about helping others. Gugu Mkhasibe, who he taught how to manage the victim friendly centre, said: “My colleagues and I are products of Constable Khomo’s lessons. He taught us so much about helping the community and he is a living example to us.” In 2015, Khomo became unsettled with seeing young people in Hammersdale having nothing constructive to do during school holidays, so he established Be a Leader project, which teaches the youth about life skills and leadership skills. To date, the project has 120 children and 20 of them have successfully completed basic computer skills courses, while six have acquired their learner driver’s licences and are in the process of getting their driver’s licences. He has also established a sports academy whereby youngsters engage

Khomo started an organisation with local graduates and tertiary students called Zibuse Village Student Movement, to collectively provide free tutorials to high school pupils in the community. He is also recruiting private companies to fund local pupils who have been accepted at tertiary institutions with registration fees and at least meals for the first few months while they wait for their NSFAS funding. He also started a reading project at Sinenzuzo Primary School which
is aimed at promoting literacy among pupils. Constable Khomo says he is not doing all this to advance himself but to en-
sure that no youngster is without an education. — Supplied

Finding love after abuse MANY people ask me if the idea of finding honest and trusting love after being in an abusive relationship is possible. The answer is simple, yes! However the process of getting to the point of openness and trust is a complex, necessary journey of time, patience, healing and self-love. Often one is left cynical about love — with elements of disdain towards the fairy tales we grew up with. Life can be consumed with obsessive thoughts and memories of the abuser and their actions, so that the possibility of opening up to true love is thwarted by the survivor. This is by no means intentional as the complexities around
experiencing abuse are so widespread that one often does not realise the abuse has overtaken the real person hidden under the trauma. The trauma covers many different elements of the self, from daily financial survival to lack of self-esteem and disassociation from the incidents that occurred. Often acknowledging that abuse indeed occurred can be difficult. Be aware that post-traumatic stress maybe evident although not known to the survivor. These symptoms may only occur years later even in a new relationship that is safe and it may be shocking and extreme when it does surface. This will be a test to the
strength of the new relationship as to whether or not it is real and filled with compassion. Moving forward after abuse is a process where healing can take place. It may be few months or a few years so it is not to be rushed. Learning to love one’s self again is a vital step to moving forward. Be kind to yourself — this is not a selfish act but an act of self-care. Time and intensive therapy can heal even the most wounded people. When the time is right, the right person will appear, even though it may not be a long-term committed partnership, it is a step in the right direction. Day by day the heart will open itself up
again to feeling emotions that were compartmentalised and locked away. Be open about the effects of what happened although this is not to define the person you are. Recently, I myself have been placed in one of the worst periods of posttraumatic stress. Having opened up slowly in a safe relationship, the effects of abuse began to surface — even 10 years later. Did this make a difference to the relationship, the answer is yes in a positive way. Talking has become more open and mutual respect strengthened. Embarrassment is not there, only support and kindness. Who knows what will happen from
here, other than a big hurdle has been overcome and the light at the end of the tunnel is nearing. The message is to never give up hope even in the darkest times. Each day is positive progress towards a renewed, confident self, knowing that things are going to be okay in the end.

THE Slender Mongoose (Galerella sanguinea ) is one of the mammal species that visitors are most likely to see in Krantzkloof Nature Reserve because they move about in daytime. Good areas to spot them are near any of the grasslands and in particular near the Lingwood trig beacon, the Ntombeni grasslands or Nkutu grasslands. They have also been spotted in the grasslands deep in the gorge on the Molweni River Krantzkloof boasts five species of mongoose. The most common after the Slender Mongoose are the Water Mongoose (Atilax paludinosus), followed by the Banded Mongoose (Mungos mungo), the Large Grey Mongoose (Herpestes ichneumon) and the White-tailed Mongoose (Ichneumia albicauda). A number of melanistic (with black tails) White Tailed Mongoose have also been recorded. Slender mongoose and Water Mongoose also frequent gardens in Kloof and they have been spotted at the memorial — look for the spoor in the muddy sections of the streams. As the name suggests, the body of the Slender Mongoose is long and slender, they have short legs and males tend to be larger than females. The colour of their fur varies greatly between the different subspecies, from dark reddish/brown to an orange/brown, yellow and grey, and they often appear speckled. They have a prominent black tip at the end of their tail which gives rise to an alternative common name: Black-tipped Mongoose. They are diurnal but will hunt on moonlit nights. They are very common throughout most of KZN except the drier northern KZN area. They are also common in most of subSaharan Africa but are not found in the Eastern and Western Cape regions. They have a den that is in a sheltered area such as a hollow log or a crevice between rocks and they may share their dens with other species. — Kloof Conservancy.

Waterfall schools educational hub complete
February 6, 2018
Sunflower Fund Ladies Breakfast underway
RIGHT streamers, singing, ribbon cutting and celebration were the order of the day for the official opening of the Waterfall Preparatory School intermediate phase building on January 31. Parents, pupils, donors, staff and invited guests got together to mark the significance of the opening of the double-storey L-shaped building which houses eight spacious classrooms for boys and girls from Grade 4 to Grade 7. The completion of this second building signifies the tremendous work and vision of the teams from Waterfall Schools and Focus on iThemba. “This time last year, I recall walking around the iThemba campus with Danie van den Heever, founder of Focus on iThemba, and engaging with Jeanette van der Merwe, our college principal, and others about the pressing need for a Grade 4 classroom,” said guest speaker and Focus on iThemba and Waterfall Schools board member Gavin Simpkins. “We had opened the foundation phase in January 2017 and so we had pupils in Grade 3 who clearly were going to need a Grade 4 classroom come January 2018. So began our dream about getting the intermediate phase block built but it really was just a dream because we did not have the financial resources to do so. Through

Judy and Danie van den Heever, founders of Focus on iThemba, cut the blue ribbon alongside marking the official opening of the Waterfall Preparatory School intermediate phase building. perseverance, the support of incredible donors and this campus, we now have this building we see before us today. The moral of the story is that it is good to dream and that with faith and hard work, seemingly impossible dreams can be achieved.” Waterfall Schools now offers a complete independent educational hub for pupils from 12 months to Grade 12 from Waterfall Pre-Primary, Preparatory and College in an expan-
sive, natural setting on the iThemba Campus located in Hillcrest. At the start of the school year, five new teachers were welcomed to the prep team, including Lorraine Benn, who is leading the intermediate phase. The new building offers breathtaking views for the boys and girls to enjoy and an eye-catching feature are the large rocks from the grounds which have been placed in a dedicated garden space.
“The property is stunning, the buildings and facilities amazing and there is opportunity wherever you look,” said Brad Cooper, principal of Waterfall Preparatory. “We can choose to start new traditions, examine the systems and structures, and implement something new as opposed to attempt to change the old. We continue to aim to offer an inspiring, stress-free environment for children of the Upper Highway area.”
Talk Sign launch a success THE 2018 Talk Sign campaign was launched to 100 media and invited guests at The Pa vilion Hotel on Friday January 26. President of the KZN Blind and Deaf So ciety Justice Zak Yacoob welcomed and ad dressed guests and told them more about the KZNBDS. Nayantra Kanaye, a coordinator of the Deaf Programme in the Department of IT at DUT, shared her story of the difficulties she experienced raising two deaf chil dren, when teaching sign language to deaf children was still frowned upon. She also explained why the launch of the firstever Talk Sign 1 Sign Language Phrase Book was so vital in bridging the gap between the deaf and the hearing. Guests enjoyed a breakfast buffet and were taught the five sign language phrases that have been highlighted for the new campaign. Gugu Ntini who is deaf and also appeared in the Talk Sign 1 book, performed a poem in sign language. Lloyd Paul, a loyal Talk Sign ambassador for the past five years and wellknown ce lebrity, entertained the guests with a high
energy rap song. Guests were spoilt with coffee and cakes, a voucher from Chateau Gateaux and all media guests received complimentary copies of Talk Sign 1. Talk Sign’s mission is to create aware ness among the South African hearing community, which will make them sensi tive to the needs of the deaf and hearing loss. This would promote sign language, and in turn, enable twoway communica tion. The longterm plan is to fully integrate the deaf community into schools, social and competitive sports, the workplace and all aspects of life. In a nutshell, the Talk Sign campaign aims to have South African Sign Language (SASL) approved as South Africa’s 12th official language. Talk Sign Day is on Friday March 9. Buy a sticker for R10 and wear it to pro mote Deaf and hearing loss awareness and encourage the hearing to learn basic sign language.

ST Mary’s DSG, Kloof, welcomed special guests to the grand opening of the Saints Café last week. Saints Café overlooks the AstroTurf and was for mally known as The Pavilion. The Pavilion was origi nally opened by the Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Mpilo Tutu on November 4, 1994. The space was then revamped and Saints Cafe, sponsored by the Parents’ Society, was opened on February 1.
The café will serve as both a tuckshop to pupils as well as a café to parents and visitors, and girls after school hours. It was a lovely occasion and an opportunity to thank those who have been involved, to cut the ribbon and celebrate a new and exciting space for the St Mary’s family. At the launch were …

Creating ‘cricket fever’ at Highbury T
HE Highbury family is so incredibly proud of our old boy, Lungi Ngidi’s cricketing accomplish ments. The excitement reached an alltime high when the 1st XI cricket team were able to visit Kings mead on Tuesday afternoon to watch the Proteas practice, and meet Ngigi in person. Dale Benkenstein, who is also a Highbury old boy, was there as batting coach for the Proteas. Together, the duo autographed a cricket shirt for Highbury, which will be displayed with pride in its Mike Procter Cricket Pavilion. The Upper Highway area is a close community and it was these community connections that helped Ngidi to get selected by Highbury Preparatory School for a full scholarship, an essential steppingstone to his Hilton scholarship and success. He was in Taryn Essery’s class at Kloof Senior Pri mary in Grade 5 and Wendy Wood was the head of department at the time. Both had close connections to Highbury, with Wood’s husband and Essery’s mom both teaching at the school, and it was through this that they heard of the scholarship opportunity. Essery describes Ngidi at the time as being “a hard working boy who was a talented cricketer but also an incredible swimmer and academically strong”. Essery and Wood compiled Ngidi’s scholarship ap plication and everyone was delighted when he was awarded a full scholarship, including boarding, for Grade 6 and 7 at Highbury. Ngidi made the most of all the opportunities that Highbury offered. In Grade 6, he played second XI crick et as an Under 12 boy and enjoyed an early touring ex perience travelling to Trinityhouse. He received his First Team playing kit in Grade 7, made the KZN U13A cricket team and was named Highbury’s “Most Improved” cricket player in the same year. “He was always respectful in all spheres of High bury life and was an excellent allround sportsman. “He has inspired the highest levels of cricket fever at Highbury this season and we are so incredibly proud of him,” said Highbury principal Roland Lacock. — Supplied.
