New MRI unit for Tzaneen the body. This is primarily used to create images of the nervous system including the brain and spinal cord. MediClinic Tzaneen’s radiology department is the only practice in the province with a Breast MRI Package which will offer breast scans for early detection of cancers and any other related ailments. “The opportunities that this machine holds for the Tzaneen community is very exciting,” explained Dr Hanief Moosa, Radiologist at Mediclinic Tzaneen. “An MRI is critically im-


portant for early detection of a stroke too.” Tzaneen is earmarked to become a regional stroke centre and the addition of the MRI machine fast tracks that process. “The benefits of the MRI is already noticeable as it has attracted a neurosurgeon which is said to join the MediClinic Tzaneen team in the new year. When we are fully up and running, patients will no longer have to travel to Pretoria or Polokwane for their scans.” The MRI is scheduled to go online in January next year.

cost of R1,4 billion. Should the GTM decide not to replace the network, but rather upgrade it, the project would be in excess of R600 million. Despite the urgency of the matter, the council initially allowed for no budget for the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 financial years except for an amount of R5 million allocated to a “non-specific” project, we understand from a source, is for high mast lighting in rural areas. This would place more strain on the network. We have since received information that the council has adapted the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) to allow for around R17 million and/or a loan of R20 million for the network for the new financial year. In the meantime the Letsitele and Letaba areas have suffer under continuous outages which in some cases last for days on end. Just this week alone saw five farms without power. The GTM is clearly struggling to keep up with the amount of outages which points to a network busy collapsing. There is also the problem of the availability of vehicles, particularly 4x4 vehicles, and qualified personnel to attend to call outs. “Last month a GTM worker was electrocuted because he did not follow the correct safety measures for working on high power lines,” a source said. “The media claimed it was because he was not supplied with protective gear, but that was not the case. He was working on a transformer while the line was live and that is what caused his death.” The power problems stretch as far as Eiland. Farmers, business owners and residents in those areas have resorted

to buying generators and establishing a whatsapp group to help one another in case of power outages. “Without electricity we lose our livelihoods. Without power the pumps stop working and a day later you sit without water as well. A neighbour of ours lost an entire roost of Quail in an incubator because of these electricity disruptions and another (a manufacturer of steel products) is losing money because of orders that cannot be completed on time. How can anyone continue like this?” Bulletin has been in touch with GTM spokesperson Neville Ndlala and his response to the matter will be published next week. — Joe Dreyer:

Tzaneen and its surroundings is in big trouble. In May this year, Bulletin warned of a total blackout threatening this area, and the Greater Tzaneen Municipality’s apparently nonchalant approach to rectifying the problem. We have since learned that the problem might not be with the GTM’s reluctance as much as it may be with their electrical department’s skill to do so. The problem is much bigger than initially anticipated and would by all accounts require a complete overhaul of the current infrastructure to solve. According to an audit report on the GTM’s electrical infrastructure and the desperate situation facing the area, by the National Electricity Regulator of SA (Nersa), it is very clear that the absolute minimum has been done to maintain or improve the dilapidated electrical network which currently carries a replacment

Tzaneen will soon have its very own, operational, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner. The mammoth 6 tonne GE Signa Creator 1.5 Tesla MRI machine’s magnet was installed in the new radiology department wing at MediClinic Tzaneen earlier this month. The machine itself cost around R14-million. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanning is a medical investigation technique that uses an exceptionally strong magnet and radio frequency waves to generate images of

A late comer to an event in Tzaneen arrived just in time to win himself R15 000 in cash. The Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa’s (CCBSA) Mpumalanga and Northern Region offices held a celebration on Thursday evening to give back to their loyal retail outlets who supported their products and promotions throughout 2016. The event took place at Hotel@Tzaneen and saw a contingent of 22 retailers sit down for canapés and an evening of entertainment. Titled “Partnering for Partnership” the event was aimed at acknowledging small enterprises in the Tzaneen and surrounding areas for their outstanding work and reward them for their efforts in distributing the country’s most loved brand. These small enterprises which comprise mostly of local spaza-shops, were judged according to a criteria that considered factors such as the selling of the Coca-Cola product at the right price, the availability of stock as well as the visibility of the brand itself. The judging was conducted through the employment of mystery shoppers who visited the

various outlets and scored them accordingly. This was the fourth year of the annual celebration and on the night in question, every attendee received a prize at the entrance which contained a lucky number entered into the draw for some extraordinary prizes. Colin Jackson, of The CCBSA’s Mpumalanga and Northern Region offices was program director on the night. When all were seated, Jackson called up numbers on a screen and contestants with the corresponding lucky number were asked to pick a random number on screen. Behind each number a prize was hidden including the mystery R15 000 in cash. Some of the other giveaways included HD PVR decoders, Webber braais, microwave ovens and cash registers. With only six numbers remaining and all contestants accounted for, it was almost certain that nobody would walk away R15 000 richer. At the very last moment a representative of Mathhebula Supermarket walked into the room and drew the lucky number to win the grand prize of R15 000. The roof of the convention hall almost lifted as his elated wife and peers

celebrated at his good fortune. “We at CCBSA wish all our loyal clients a very happy Christmas and festive new year and we hope to continue celebrating partnerships well into the years to come,” added Jackson. — Joe Dreyer

Six arrested before robbery A high speed chase and shoot-out between the police and armed robbers resulted in the arrest of six suspects on Monday evening outside Tzaneen. A special team comprised of members of Tzaneen Cluster First Responders, Crime Intelligence, the Provincial Tracking team, Detectives, Tactical Response Teams and the SAPS Air Wing were acting on information about a gang of robbers who were allegedly planning a business robbery in the Tzaneen area. It is believed that this could have been a planned cash-in-transit heist, but this has not yet been confirmed. The team was travelling in the direction of Tarentaal when they spotted a suspicious ve-

hicle along the road. A Mercedes Benz with six occupants.

ere acting A special team w bout a gang on information a dly planning who were allege heist. a cash-in-transit Upon their approach, the vehicle suddenly sped off and its occupants started firing at the officers. The officers gave chase and fired at the tyres of the Mercedes which

caused the vehicle to leave the road and crash into a farm fence trapping the occupants inside. The officers were able to arrest all six suspects and recovered firearms, ammunition, a six-channel radio and a cell phone jamming device. Upon further questioning the suspects led the police to a car wash where they recovered an Audi allegedly destined to have been part of the planned crime. Police ran a check on the chasis number and discovered that the Audi was reported stolen from Ivory Park in Thembisa. The Mercedes is also believed to have ben stolen although it could not be confirmed as the chasis number had been tampered with. The suspects were between the ages of 28 and 38-years old and from various areas including Sekororo, Lenyenye, Tickyline outside Tzaneen, Thembisa in Gauteng and one from Swaziland. The six were charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, possession of cell phone jamming device, possession of stolen motor vehicles and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition. They will appear in the Tzaneen Magistrate’s court. — Joe Dreyer

No water, yet restricted As the Greater Tzaneen Municipality imposes water restrictions across its area of jurisdiction, residents are furious over burst water pipes that have still not been repaired in many outlying areas. “How are we expected to use water sparingly when some of our areas don’t even have water to use?” asked one angry resident. “The water floods our streets yet our faucets remain dry. Water restrictions are a good measure, but the supply of water is a better place to start!” According to the residents, water could be saved if the municipality repaired leaking pipes and supplied their homes with water in the first place. “The GTM is aware of the burst pipes that have been reported to us and we send our maintenance teams to repair those burst pipes as soon as we can,” said Neville Ndlala, GTM spokesperson. “We obviously don’t know of bursts and leaks if nobody calls us and reports them, which is very often the case in the outlying areas. We

understand that water is important, more especially now during this time of drought as we face a crisis. We request the community’s cooperation in this regard and plead with them not to remain silent, but to report these prob-

lems to our call centre so that they can be attended to urgently.” In terms of the council notice, water restrictions have been implemented across the municipality and will remain in place until further notice.

Continuous water woes Despite hundreds of millions spent over the last decade, the people of Petanenge village still do not have a regular supply of water. Water scarcity is becoming a fundamental development constraint in the Mopani district. Petanenge is facing serious challenges, as most residents depend on groundwater from boreholes and the Letsitele River. Mhlava, Mokgoloboto and Khujwana are all areas affected by this problem. According to official figures, as many as a fifth of the people living in the Mopani district still have no access to running water, and another third have to carry water from sometimes far-off communal taps. Nkateko Ngoma (19) was asked to leave Petanenge High school last year after she failed Grade 8 a number of times. The struggling teenager had a sad face when Bulletin met with her, pushing a wheelbarrow caring three 25 litre containers and few 2 litre bottles in a shopping bag.

Fetching water from Letsitele River has been a routine to her. Nkateko is one of the teenagers whose precious time is wasted fetch-

ing water every day, while being denied the right to an education. Her single mother is unemployed and relies on child support grant earned by her younger siblings for survival. “It is hard work and I do it every day, because we do not have water here.” She burst into tears. “Last time we had water from the boreholes

was in December last year,” she said pointing to three empty water reservoirs in the veld nearby. “That is where our water should be coming from,” she said, “we use the water from the river for bathing and washing clothes, and we sometimes pay R1,50 for a 25 litre container for drinking water, otherwise we have to walk almost five kilometres to Nkowankowa to get safe and clean tap water.” Water supply failures are becoming more frequent and seem to be escalating. So too the related service delivery protests which are often accompanied by violence. The situation is dire and points to the severity of the drought in the province. Whether the situation will be resolved any time soon remains a mystery as at the time of going to print no comment could be reached from the Mopani District municipal offices. — Phidelia Rikhotso

The Message

Push the button

Dr Jan Truter

“Another year has come and gone” temps the tip of my tongue but I feel I owe it to 2016 to refrain from clichéd mantras. This wasn’t just another year for us – not by a long shot. In the last eleven months South Africans went through changes that would forever alter the landscape of whatever future we thought we predicted. The public broadcaster was muzzled, the public protector persecuted for protecting the public, universities destroyed by the students they were built for, the national rugby team defeated by a soccer-playing nation, insecticide replaced the hand of god and Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States. And those are just some of the highlights! Sounds like a Terry Pratchet novel, doesn’t it? Closer to home and Tzaneen’s picture looks just as unbelievable. The public swimming bath was opened - and then closed - more times than the municipality’s petty cash drawer, the new mayor’s new car was driven by the sheriff more often than himself in the first few weeks of its purchase, the George’s Valley road collapsed and was rebuilt, and a new rain queen was appointed but the Tzaneen dam is almost empty as the worst drought in memory persists. A tea farm was bought to grow avo’s but now stands bare of both, schools were torched, Julius Malema lost his hometown vote and a certain news headline accused one primary school child of attempting to kidnap another. Oh, but on the bright side, Tzaneen’s rubbish dump received the cleanest audit in the country. World, it’s time to push the button.

Niemand om te troos

Parents of schoolgoing children were left with mixed feelings at the announcement of the opening of Unity Primary School in 2005. A member of the Department of Education proposed that Tzaneen be devided to allow children to attend their closest school between Laerskool Tzaneen and Unicorn. The meeting was called by Mayor O.J Mushwana and ended up with disruptions and innuendos of racism. An advert showed that steak was priced R25/kg and less. Ons gaan vir die res van die jaar elke week ‘n voorblad wys. Dit gaan beslis interessant wees om te sien wat twaalf jaar gelede die hoofnuus in die toonaangewende nuusblad van Limpopo se Laeveld was. Geniet dit gerus!

Dit gebeur dikwels so… twee kinders word maatjies by die skool en later kuier die ouers net so lekker saam! Die volgende verhaal het uit so ʼn vriendskap gekom. My broer, Ben, se dogter het met ʼn dogter by die skool vriende geword en een aand word hulle na die maatjie se ouers vir ete genooi! Deur die aand se gekuier, het my broer agtergekom, dat die maatjie se pa in ʼn weeshuis grootgeword het en nooit sy ma of pa geken het nie! Toe vertel hy hierdie storie. Die weeshuiskinders het aan die einde van die jaar, met Kersfees, die geleentheid gehad om ʼn geskenk van hulle keuse, binne ʼn voorgeskrewe bedrag, te kon kies. Hierdie was dan ook àl geskenk, wat hulle elke jaar gekry het! Toe moes hy die groot keuse maak tussen ʼn langbroek of ‘n paar swart skoolskoene. Hy het by homself geredeneer, dat dit beter is om die swart skoolskoene te kies, want hy kon nog sy bene in die winter met kouse bedek, maar hy kon dit net nie meer hanteer om op die yskoue ryp van die Vrystaatse winter kaalvoet skool toe te loop nie. Sy keuse was die swart skoolskoene, sommer twee nommers groter, sodat hy dit nog lank kon dra. Op Kersdag, kry hy toe sy skoene! Dit was sy eerste paar skoene, wat hy in sy lewe gekry het! Dit was vir hom so kosbaar, dat hy dit eerder in die kas gebêre het, as om dit te dra! Hy vertel, hoe hy ure na die skoene kon kyk en selfs met hulle in sy bed langs hom op die kussing geslaap het, sodat dit die laaste en die eerste ding was, wat hy gesien het, as hy gaan slaap en opstaan. Elke dag, as hy van die skool af gekom het, was die eerste ding waarna hy gaan kyk het, sy skoolskoene! Toe hy een middag weer van die skool af kom en sy kas oopmaak, tref ʼn vreeslike gesig hom. Iemand het sy splinternuwe skoene gevat en al die buitenste swart leer met ʼn skeermeslemmetjie afgekrap! Hy was stukkend en kon nie ophou huil nie! Toe sê hy vir my broer: “Weet jy Ben, wat was vir my die ergste? Nie die feit, dat die skoene se swart afgekerf was nie, ek kon hulle weer politoer gee, maar die feit, dat ek nie ‘n pa of ‘n ma gehad het om my te troos, toe ek so gehuil het nie!!”. Regoor ons land, is daar hierdie Kersfees sulke kinders. Terwyl die wêreld feesvier, sit hulle alleen! Terwyl ons om die kospotte vergader, hoop hulle om net iets te eet, enige iets! Terwyl ons geskenke as familie oopmaak, kry hulle niks, want hulle het nie eers ouers wat vir hulle omgee nie, wat nog van ‘n geskenk gee! Terwyl ons geskenke die dag na Kersfees begin stof vergader, droom hulle daarvan om net eenkeer daaraan te raak! Ons sit om kersbome en kaggelvure... hulle lê iewers koud, alleen en vergete! Kom ons dink hierdie Kersfees aan hulle! Moenie by ʼn straatkind verbystap, sonder om sy ellende te begryp nie. As iemand aan jou deur klop vir hulp, moenie vergeet, hy sou ook aan die anderkant van daardie deur wou gestaan het nie! As ʼn kinderfonds of ʼn weeshuis ʼn donasie vra, moenie vergeet, dat dit vir jou kon gewees het nie! As jy vanaand die sagte warm kombers oor jou kind trek en hom nagsê, dink daaraan, daar is kinders wat smag daarna om dit te hê, want hulle het nie eers iemand om hulle te troos as hulle huil nie! En voor jy die lig op Kersaand afsit, onthou hierdie woorde van Christus: “Vir sover julle dit aan een van hierdie geringstes nie gedoen het nie, het julle dit aan My ook nie gedoen nie!”(Matteus 25 vers 45).

Guards down tools over wages EFF Provincial Matric examination marking stations in Nkowankowa are left unguarded as security officers employed by Galant Security (GNT) were allegedly fired by the company for complaining about their wages. According to reports the employees staged a protest action against GNT after they had allegedly not received their salaries for three months. Security guards stationed at Tivumbeni Multipurpose centre in Nkowankowa alleged that they had worked for three months without pay whilst the company only supplied them with salary slips. The employees’ frustrations were further fuelled by news that the company’s contract with the De-

partment of Education expired in December. The guards begged for anonymity for fear of dismissal or warnings after their HR manager, Mr Nyathi Justice, apparently ordered them not to disclose the fact that they were not being paid. “Mr Nyathi said if asked by clients or the centre management about salary related matters please say you are getting paid, failure to do that will result in you being fired.” One of the guards said. “We have reported the matter at Department of Labour several times individually and all they did was gave us case numbers and nothing more.

We are now stuck with seven case numbers. The company does not even supply us with full uniform.” “Last month Nyathi told us that we should stop calling him and speak to our supervisors about our salary matters. The supervisors claim not to know anything about the matter and keep telling us to check our accounts on Friday.” The case has now apparently been reported to the Treasurer at the Department of Education. According to the workers this came after they approached the Risk Management division at the department. GNT Security’s operational manager, Mr Velly Mlombo denied any knowledge of the employees complaints. “I don’t know where you got that information from, but whoever the person is who gave you the information is not a reliable source. I cannot comment on whether we’re paying our workers or not.” Galant Security (GNT) is owned and managed by Vusi Mashaba. He made headlines in 2013 after he was arrested allegedly on charges of fraud involving a tax clearance certificate for a security tender in the Msukaligwa municipal area in Mpumalanga. At the time of going to print no further comment could be gained from GNT and the workers still have not been paid their dues. — Phidelia Rhikotso and Joe Dreyer

Leader charged Jossey Buthane, Limpopo Provincial Leader of the EFF and member of Provincial Legislature, allegedly assaulted two members of his party in Sekhukune on Sunday. The two victims were a 27-yearold woman and a 31-year-old man. Buthane reportedly assaulted them with his fists and open hands during an argument. It is not certain what the origin of the argument was. The victims sustained bruises to their faces and were taken to a local clinic for medical treatment. A case of assault was opened against Buthane at Jane Furse police station outside Lebowakgomo. No one from the EFF could be contacted when referring to the landline and cell numbers on their website. A phone, apparently that of the national spokesman, was answered, however, the person who picked up

Jossey Buthane.

would not confirm his position and said the number was incorrect. He also refused to give the correct number and slammed the phone down on the Bulletin journalist. Buthane has allegedly been involved in assault cases in the past as well as a case of inciting public violence. Police investigations are continuing. — Sue Ettmayr

Selati harbours the bush buddies Selati Game Reserve in Limpopo opened its gates to twelve learners from two dissimilar communities for the inaugural “Bush Buddies” initiative. Pupils from different sides of the socio-economic divide get closer to each other, and nature, through this ground-breaking programme. Six pupils from rural Zivuko Secondary School and six from Penryn College in Mbombela - also the home of Penreach, one of Africa’s largest education outreach initiatives - were invited for an introductory course in conservation at this private reserve, supported by continuing learning and the opportunity to engage via social media. In a context where young South Africans still struggle to connect across deep-rooted divisions, and preserving the environment frequently falls to the bottom of a long national priority list, Limpopo’s Selati Game Reserve has devised an innovative way to approach these problems at a grassroots level – quite literally. The Bush Buddies initiative brings pupils together for a year-long programme of learning and interaction, centring around a series of intensive wilderness weekends on the spectacular 27 000 ha private game reserve. “The Reserve serves as the facilitating platform to build relationships, while also teaching the pupils about sustainability and the value of nature,” said Selati Game Reserve chair-

man and programme founder Rob Snaddon. “The long-term hope is to play a meaningful role in breaking down barriers and enhancing inter-societal understanding and learning among the next generation, while also encouraging interest and passion in conservation.” The game reserve’s history has in itself been an experiment in breaking down barriers. Originally consisting of seven separately owned and managed farms, the owners resolved in 1993 to drop their interior border fences and create one continuous, closed system under central management, dedicated to fostering biodiversity. Selati Game Reserve is now home to over 50 different species of mammals, including elephant, black and white rhino, sable antelope, lion, leopard and cheetah. Social development initiatives like Bush Buddies, are crucial to the reserve’s vision, explained Snaddon. “We thought hard about our philosophy and responsibility as conservationists, and realized that our best hope lies in proactively sharing this environment and this knowledge with the next generation,” he said. The highlights of 2016’s “Bush Buddies” programme were the two weekend-long bush excursions, where the pupils came to grips with bushcraft basics: from identifying and tracking animals, to assessing river health, to stargazing, to the messy reality of dissect-

ing an impala. One aspect of the project that learners might find daunting is the demand that they surrender their phones and other devices for the entirety of the excursion. “All phones and tablets go in a lock box from day one,” said Lourette Joubert, who facilitates the programme on site along with her husband, Dusty Joubert, Selati Game Reserve’s General Manager. “This forces the pupils to connect with one another.” The long-term hope is that the Bush Buddies model will be adopted by other schools and reserves in other provinces. “Ultimately, we wish to give youngsters a new sense of respect for each other and for our environment. The Bushveld is our natural heritage as South Africans. Much like our cultural heritage, we can’t hope to preserve it if we don’t engage with it.”

Boere gaan water en grond systap Tegnologie gaan boere voortaan in staat stel om kos te produseer wat minder afhanklik is van water en grond, sê mnr Cobus Wells, hoof van ABSA AgriBusiness, in die bank se landbouvooruitsig vir 2017. Die jongste neighing is dat boere hul ondernemings vertikaal laat groei, wat lei tot presisieboerdery gegrond op die jongste tegnologiese praktyke. “Landbou was nog altyd ‘n enorme werkskepper, maar dit transformeer na ‘n tegnologies gedrewe bedryf wat van vaardige arbeid gebruik maak.

Ons moet onsself afvra of ons bewus is van markontwrigters en watter risikos dit vir bestaande boerderypraktyke inhou.” Volgens ABSA se verslag is bemarking en produksie die twee deurslaggewende tegnologiee vir voorspoed in die landboubedryf. Landbou het nou weer die geleentheid om regstreeks met die verbruiker sake te doen pleks van deur die supermark. Regstreekse persoonlike bemarking en aanlyn-transaksies sal die norm word en supermarkte sal krimp. Die verslag meld dat veral jonger boere in tegnologie sal belê en nuwe maniere ontwikkel om die verbruiker regstreeks te bereik. Nuwe produksietegnologie gaan wegbeweeg van landelike gebiede na stede, wat die vraag na vervoer van produkte oor lang afstande sal verminder. Hier word gepraat van vertikale produksie van groente, mikrobiologiese produksie van energieprodukte en kunsmatige produksie van vleis. Hierdie tegnologie kan ‘n bedreiging vir die meeste ekonomiee in Afrika wees wat op landbou staatmaak, omdat daar nie meer ‘n vraag na groot gebiede vir landbougrond gaan wees nie.

Boerie with your elbow How do you tie a good old boerewors roll and a 22mm copper-pipe together? Simple, you offer one of them for free to your customers every Wednesday. True story, just ask the Tzaneen plumbers who frequent the brand new Plumblink store in Skirving Street. When the 79th store of this national plumbing franchise opened its doors in Tzaneen last month, the local sanitation fraternity all came together to celebrate. And they had good reason to as there now exists a supplier that is able to cater to all their specialist needs whilst offering the DIY-enthusiast a fantastic range of essentials at a very good price. Supplying the community with good quality products at exceptionally good prices is something that lies close to the brand ethos. And it’s not the usual sales pitch ei-

ther. Plumblink is known nationwide as the go-to-guys in the industry precisely because of their range and their very specific 4-Minute-Rule which dictates that no customer should have to wait longer than four minutes to be satisfied with a query or a purchase. “Oh it really is a real thing and something that we have t o strive towards on order of our Chief Operations Officer,” explained store manager Soretta van der Berg. “Customers are invited to put this to the test when they come in for a purchase.” The Tzaneen branch stocks the entire range of plumbing fittings including copper and Conex as well as nylon for HDPE piping systems. They also carry a range of geyser fittings and spares for Kwikot

and Heat Tech boilers. “We are considered an express store,” explained Van der Berg, “although we carry everything plumbing related, special- and bulk orders can be arranged with our Distribution Centre in Polokwane. We deliver to Tzaneen quickly and efficiently to ensure that your project stays on time.” The store operates from 07:00-16:30 Mondays to Thursdays, 07:00-16:00 on Fridays and 08:00-13:00 on Saturdays. The store manager, Soretta, can be contacted at svanderberg@plumblink. for any enquiries or assistance with special orders and deliveries. Visit their website or stop by the store in Skirving Street to see what all the hype is about…and if you decide to visit on a Wednesday, remember to grab that free boerie!

Fear lessl y the tr uth

<Ben Vorster vs Tommies

Ben Vorster High hosted Polokwane-based Tom Naude for a day of exceptional rugby which saw the Red Machine defeat the visitors 86-0 in the first team clash.

Limpopo U/13 Netball Trials > The Limpopo netball trials were held at Ben Vorster High School, in Tzaneen, during the first week of June. Local primary schools achieved great results during that week.


It’s that time of year again when we have the chance to look back at some of the highlights we had the pleasure of experiencing alongside our sportsmen and women. This week we highlight some of the most exciting moments of the first half of this year.



Ben Vorster Prestige Athletics > Ben Vorster High hosted schools from across the region at their annual Prestige Athletics meeting in Tzaneen. It was a day full of explosive action to kick off the 2016 athletics season.


Stanford Lake vs St Dunstans > The prestigious St Dunstan’s College trekked up to Stanford Lake from Gauteng for a weekend of sport during the month of May. The hosts white washed their visitors in all disciplines including rugby, hockey, netball and tennis.


Kayak > On Friday, 29 July the SLC kayak team made their way to Clarens for the annual Ash River Festival. SLC was the only school-related team participating.


Stay fit during the December holidays. Train at Tzaneen Health & Fitness Gym!
