EVERYDAY

HEROES Michelle Geel


2018 has been declared the year to celebrate the centenary of the first State President of our democratic government, Dr Nelson Mandela, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. What better role model to look to, to believe that ANYTHING is possible if we put our minds to it, no matter where we come from. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born in rural Mvezo, Transkei, on 18 July 1918. As a young child his family lost everything to the then government and were forced to leave their home and start fresh in Qunu. This boy from Transkei, rose to become South Africa’s first democratically elected President. Nelson Mandela was known, and will always be remembered for his graciousness in his position of power, and for his drive to help those less fortunate with things like the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. Just as he was able to rise above his circumstances, so many other ordinary hero’s exist around us. Some have come from humble beginnings and have brought themselves up to success, some are using their abilities to help raise others up.

Vusi Thembekwayo

Born in Benoni, by the age of 17, Vusi was already ranked 1st in Africa for motivational speaking. As one of the top motivational and keynote speakers alive today, he has spoken in 4 of the 7 continents to over 250 000 people each year. At 25 he ran a R400mn division in a R17bn multi-national. Today he is one of the youngest directors of a listed company and is the CEO of a boutique investment and advisory firm that forces medium, large and listed businesses into much needed, often painful, always lucrative new directions. He also serves on several boards. However, be-

fore that success came he had to work hard to get where he wanted to be. It didn’t just come easy, nor was success just handed to him. On opening day when he went to Benoni High, he wore his father’s suit.” He said. “It’s hard when you stand there and there’s rows and rows of kids and they are all looking at you like you come from a different planet but that’s all I could wear.” Vusi wants to see others around him succeed too, and has since started his own Growth fund, supporting business people as they start out, to assist them in building their businesses by providing advice and implementation support across various disciplines.


Andrew Patterson

Originally from Jo’burg, Patterson is enchanted by Cape Town’s remarkable beauty and is King Edward School old boy, Andrew Patalso aware of the unfortunate circumstances terson has pledged to hike up Table Mounthat so many South Africans are born into. It tain every day in 2018 to empower 1 million was this reason that prompted Patterson to people, on the donation-based crowd funding dedicate his year to causes much bigger than platform, BackaBuddy himself. The money raised will go to three charities close to Andrew’s heart: • Habitat for Humanity who build homes for the disadvantaged and fulfil their basic right to safety against the elements. • One Heart For Kids teach children the value and importance of reading and writing to positively impact South Africa’s literacy rate. • The Sunflower Fund creates awareness around leukaemia in South Africa in hopes to increase their donor base.

After being retrenched, Andrew found himself with time to look at what he loved and was moved to do more, to do something with his time to touch others. He believes that by embracing the spirit of Ubuntu we CAN touch lives around us and make a difference. Andrew started his 365 Ubuntu Climbs at 4:33 am on the 1st of January 2018. His mantra for 2018 is “It’s one step at a time”.

LEADING BY EXAMPLE Michelle Geel

The shootings in US Schools at the beginning of 2018, while highlighting terrible faults in the school and social systems, have also shown some wonderful examples of students rising up to protect and lead their fellow students. These are ordinary students who reach deep into themselves to lead by example. In everyday school life, there are many opportunities to do more, do better, be better. So, what can you do to be a leader or, even just to be a positive role model to your fellow students? Firstly, what is a role model? A positive role model serves as an example– inspiring others around them to live meaningful lives. Role models show their peers how to live with integrity,

optimism, hope, determination, and compassion.

1. Show confidence and leadership.

A good role model is someone who is positive, calm, and confident in themselves. You don’t want someone who is down or tries to bring you down. Everyone likes a person who is happy with their achievements, but constantly strives to be better.

2. Don’t be afraid to be unique.

Whatever you choose to do with your life, be proud of the person you are and are becoming, even if that means accepting some ridicule. Being a role model means being someone who won’t pretend to be someone they are not, and won’t be fake, just to suit other people.


3. Communicate and interact with everyone.

Good communication means listening as well as talking, showing others that you value their thoughts. Being a good role model also means giving everyone a chance and not shutting people out because they may look different or have different views to you. It also means standing up to ensure that others voices are heard.

4. Show respect and concern for others.

You may be driven, successful, and smart, but whether you choose to show respect or not speaks volumes about how other people see you. Everyone notices if you are taking people for granted, not showing gratitude, or stepping on others to get ahead. 5. Be knowledgeable and well rounded. Great role models aren’t just “teachers.” They are constant learners, challenge themselves to get out of their comfort zones, and surround themselves with smarter people. When your peers see that a role model can be many things, they will learn to stretch themselves in order to be successful.

6. Have humility and willingness to admit mistakes.

Nobody is perfect. When you make a bad decision, let those who are watching and learning from you know that you made a mistake and how you plan to correct it. By apologizing, accepting accountability, and correcting course, you will be demonstrating an often overlooked part of being a role model.

7. Do good things outside your normal school life.

People who do the work, yet find time for good causes outside of school, such as raising money for charity, helping people in need etc, get extra credit. Commitment to a good cause implies a strong commitment to the world around them.

8. Show a Clear Set of Values

Role models live their values in the world. Children admire people who act in ways that support their beliefs. It helps them understand how their own values are part of who they are and how they might seek fulfilling roles as adults. For example, students speak of many people who supported causes from education to poverty to the environment. Role models helped these students understand the underlying values that motivated people to become advocates for social change and innovation.

9. Practice what you preach.

If you want to be aW good role model, then the most important thing is for you to do as you say. It’s important to show others a good example by how you conduct yourself..


Beauty is a skill that all ladies (but men as well) must learn at an early age. We will then learn, and teach our kids, to look after our skin properly (remember, it needs to see us through our whole life). Ladies can learn how to apply make-up beautifully.

STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE Michelle Geel


“Make sure you have some kind of secretarial studies behind you” “doing a typing course is always a benefit in the job market” Those were the words said to hundreds and hundreds of girls 40 years ago. Today things have changed and, male or female, the smart thing to do is to have some kind of IT skills behind you. When a prospective employer looks at your CV, one thing they always check out are what IT skills you have. Can you do the basics...Word, Excel? Do you have more advanced skills that may allow you to grow within the company, like Computer programming or Development or coding? Gone are the days where the humble secretary just needs to be able to answer a phone and take messages. Now, having a range of IT skills give you the boost to change and grow in your career. You also have the option of studying Information Technology (IT) or Computer Science. IT involves installing, organizing and maintaining computer systems, as well as designing and operating networks and databases. Computer science is focused entirely on efficiently programming computers using mathematical algorithms. IT is not just about desktop PCs. Even within the more mainstream computing industry, there’s a massive array of career options: programming, database management, networking and desktop support. But graduates from computing/IT programmes are also prepared to specialise in far wider areas of interest. Computer technology is part of nearly everything nowadays! Ever thought of biotechnol-

ogy, nanotechnology or robotics? A degree in computing could lead to any one of these fields! Information technology is incredibly diverse and it’s not just about fixing computers or laptops. The available course will allow you to take your career in a number of different directions. Careers vary from a technical writer, web developer, information technology director, chief technology officer and so much more. IT graduates will also be prepared to specialise in far wider areas of interest. The job market in computing and information technology is growing. These jobs require skill, training and a logical thinking process. Many of these careers are demanding and stressful but most offer a hefty financial reward. The advances in technology not only call for people who can work with the hardware and software (Information Technology Specialists), but also those individuals who have a sound understanding of how organisations make use of computers to function effectively and efficiently. The ability to understand the various business processes and create a link between the users or customers and the technology is the primary role of the Information Systems Specialist. Various career opportunities exist in the field of Information Systems. Thus, students can find an area that interests them and pursue it further.


Although career opportunities are numerous, each one requires that a graduate possesses the following basic skills: • Analytical skills • Interpersonal skills • Presentation skills • Problem identification skills • Report writing skills • Self-development skills • Time management skills

Career opportunities in the field of Information Systems include: • Systems or business analyst • Project manager • Information officer • Database administrator • Business intelligence • ICT consultant • Web design • Programmer • Systems architect It is important to find a training centre that has a good track record. You also should find a school that assists you to become internationally qualified in the IT Industry, making you more marketable. Finding an academy that provides a range of the most up to date training solutions is very important, as is their assistance, if required, to attain practical work experience.

GAP


For some matrics, putting college on hold could be just the right thing. Also known as a “Gap” year, the break between high school and college/University, might include travel, work, research or volunteering before continuing academic studies. While your peers are deciding where to apply to University or Technicon, you may be wondering, “Is taking a gap year a good idea?” Trying to decide whether or not taking a gap year after high school works for you, is a big decision. The final year of high school is notorious for being the time when teenagers are asked to make huge, life-changing decisions, many of which are influenced heavily by factors they can’t control. It’s a very stressful time!

Positives to taking a gap year You can experience something totally new – University or Technicon is amazing but can be similar in structure to school. Taking a gap year can give you the opportunity to take a breather from the classroom structure.

begin college. Most gap year participants will know how to be a good student, but they will lack quality life experiences. Gap years provide students with opportunities to interact with others, take on more responsibilities and become more independent. Whether the student is living in a different country or working in a different state, they must take care of themselves as an adult for the first time. After gap year students begin college, they will be better prepared to deal with the challenges of college Gain a New Perspective. Another one of the advantages of gap years is that students are challenged to leave their comfort zone. Students are usually engaged in something entirely new in a totally different environment. Living and working in an unfamiliar climate and learning a new language will broaden the student’s horizons. Spending a whole year doing something special will help the student gain new perspective on life, academics and relationships. For instance, a history class will be so much more meaningful if the student has actually lived in the country and visited the museums and places of interest. Gap year students will experience an enhanced understanding of global issues, cultural diversity and abstract ideas.

Develop new life skills. Hone your global competency, learn about entrepreneurialism and improve your ability to communicate and adapt quickly in the face of challenges. Negatives to taking a gap year Discover a hidden passion. Whether it’s photography, organic farming or international relations, a gap year can help you find dormant interests. Accelerated Maturity One of the biggest advantages of gap years is that students will be more mature when they

Some people may not understand your choice. More traditional family members or teachers may not quite understand your choice. That’s certainly okay, but it means you’ll have to educate the people around you about your plans and that you might feel like you have to justify your plan to others.


Some programs can add costs to your educational path. If the alternative was to go straight to a fouryear program and finish on time, and you choose an organized gap-year program, your overall costs will be higher with a gap year. However, a gap year can help you make better educational plans and shorten your time in college, and it can also include time spent working and earning money. If you aren’t goal-oriented, you can easily get disorganized. If you’re someone who needs outside deadlines to get anything done and can happily lay around all day if someone else doesn’t make you get up, then a gap year might not be the best fit for you. To make the most of your gap year, you need to be able to motivate yourself to grow, learn, take advantage of opportunities, and prepare for what’s next! When it comes to a gap year after high school, pros and cons really depend on how able you are to make the year what you want it to be. Research and planning take a lot of work! Getting the most out of your gap year before college means making a plan that’s right for you, and that takes research. Don’t let your parents do all the research for you. This is the

time to choose the perfect fit for you. If you aren’t willing to put in the work, you might not be ready to make the most of a gap year. You might not be ready to make the most of the experience yet. Only you can know if you’re ready to have a gap year experience like learning a new language in Europe, working on a farm in Australia, teaching English in Africa, or interning in South America. It should feel challenging and make you a little anxious, but if you’re totally nervous and feel unprepared to be responsible for your own schedule, you might find a gap year abroad overwhelming. So, is taking a gap year right for you? When you think about taking a gap year after high school, pros and cons can be tough to balance! It can help to remember that all gap years don’t look alike! You don’t have to go all the way to the other side of the world and spend the year in a hut with no electricity (although, you also can if that’s your thing!). A gap year can look like finding a job in your hometown and living at home for a year while you learn a member. It can also mean limiting your possessions to your backpack and hitting the road for an international adventure. The possibilities are endless!

Guys....yes you! This article is for you as well as the girls out there. Teen pregnancy is not just about the girl who is pregnant but it is also about the father of the baby. While we know that the mom has options relating to her body, this article is just looking at how to cope with school and being young parents. Becoming a parent, at any age, can be a life-altering experience. Regardless of race, education, and socio-economic status, motherhood—and fatherhood—places demands on one’s life that were non-existent prior to the birth of a child. When school-aged students become parents, the new responsibilities can be overwhelming. For teenage parents who perhaps lack support from their own parents, this experience can be even more daunting as they seek support in adult-oriented systems, which even older parents may find challenging. There will obviously be extra physical, emotional and time pressures when you’re a young mother or father who wants to continue with your studies. This may mean you need to ask for help from a partner, friend or family member to look after your child while you study. You may even need to study at night and work during the day. If you are able to stay with your parents, consider doing so, as it may help you deal with the daily pressures of looking after your child. This means you’ll be in a better physical and emotional state to study. While you and your partner don’t have to stay together, you do need to be realistic that for you both to succeed you will need to help each other. It’s worth making the effort to continue with your education, as it has many benefits – including job and financial security to be able to support yourself and your child. It also allows you to connect with other people and feel less lonely. Continuing your education, while maybe difficult to go to school every day with everyone knowing you are pregnant or you the father of a baby on the way, getting your Matric is a


vital part of creating a wonderful future for your children. There is no reason why you can’t complete your education. You owe it to your child to make it work. You’ll find a way. School, homeschooling, college, distance learning, night classes are all options. It may not be easy, but so very important. Talk to teachers, the education department. You have a right to an education, but it’s your responsibility to make sure you get it. For assistance or support in KZN, contact Dignity Centre What do they do: Teenage pregnancy has become a major problem in South Africa. Teenage girls who become pregnant find themselves in situations that can lead to other problems such as abuse, poverty, single parenting, unemployment and a break in their education. In many cases the teens never finish high school. Champion Teen Campaigns focus on educating teens to help them make sexually responsible choices. We are passionate about inspiring teens to rise up and take ownership for their lives. Champion Teens provide an avenue for dialogue as well as opportunities to share relevant information and resources. http://www.dignitycentre.org email: dignitycentreoffice@gmail.com call: 0742388948

SOUTH AFRICAN FOR PROPERTY VALUERS PROFESSION Property valuers determine the value of property for various purposes and thus professionals in the field are needed by all levels of government, the banking industry and people in general. Property is also known as real estate and includes tangible things such as land and building for dwellings or businesses, schools, clinics, dams, farms, roads as well as plant and equipment. Property valuers determine the value of property for various purposes. For instance(a) businesses use the value of land, property, plant and equipment in the Balance Sheet or the Statement of Financial Position; they use the value to determine rental or lease amounts and to determine replacement value for insurance (in case the property gets destroyed); (b) municipalities in the townships use property values to determine municipal property rates that households pay monthly (this amount appears in the household’s electricity and water bill); (c) people need to know the value of property when they want to buy or sell it; and usual finance the property through a mortgage bond, hence need to know the value of the property in order to determine the (d) banks will usually value of the bond. A qualified valuer can open his or her business, work for government or municipality and may lecture on the subject at a university. To prepare for the profession it is best to have secondary school subjects in Mathematics and Economics. The South African Council for the Property Valuers Profession regulates the property valuers profession. Thus valuers must register with the Council in order to practice valuation. Before registration one must enrol for one of the following universities which are recognised to offer the valuation qualification (including Honours level): University of Cape Town (BSc); University of Johannesburg (B Com); University of Pretoria (BSc); University of the Witwatersrand- Wits (BSc). The Cape Peninsula University of Technology offers a Diploma in Real Estate (full time or distance learning) and University of the Free State offers a Masters in Land and Property Management. If one has a mentor who is a pprofessional valuer, s/he can register with the Council after one year of studies and gain practical experience while completing the qualification. This arrangement is ideal for students who enrolled for the Diploma. Welcome to Property valuationthe career of choice!
