False fail for local matriculant HANRIE BOSCH

THURSDAY 5 January was a joyous day for numerous matrics who celebrated the end of their school careers as their names were published in newspapers. But at least one Cape Town matric was left distraught for more than a week, thinking she had failed, after a blunder at the Western Cape Education Department (WCED). WCED “lost” La-eeqah Stoutz’s second maths paper and omitted her name from the paper. “In our family we have a tradition: when you pass matric and your name is in the paper

we keep it. Now La-eeqah has lost out on this,” said her mother, Abeda Abrahams, from the family home in Kewtown, Athlone, “It was very traumatic for her, as all her friends and family came to sympathise. Every second we had to console her. There are just so many ‘what ifs’. “What if we had not consoled her and she decided to do something stupid? What then?” But luckily for Stoutz her mother double checked on the internet and found an “incomplete” next to her name. She discovered that Stoutz had not written her second maths paper, according to the WCED. “I took her to school every day to write exams and we both knew that this could not be true.” Abrahams was then told to phone back three weeks later to get an update. Stoutz’s teacher at Rylands High

School in Athlone sent her the results on Thursday 12 January and she could finally relax. But many questions remain unanswered for the family, and they feel that their daughter has been robbed of the joy of seeing her name in the paper and having everyone know that she passed, and wonder how many other pupils are in the same boat. People’s Post contacted the WCED and was told that: “According to our records, the candidate has a full result. She can collect her results from the department if she does not already have them. “Meanwhile, the department is investigating the claims.” They were also unable to comment on how often these “errors” crept in and a name was omitted from the paper.

PSA member makes a difference in education AS PART of its back-to-school campaign, Proudly South African has lauded three member companies making a positive difference in education, the lives of children and in job creation. This week, People’s Post spoke to Chanine Nel, owner of Rock Series, which specialises in supplying schools with mathematics and reading program software from Grades 0 to 10. Rock Series was founded in 2004 by Chanine, who was inspired to make a difference in the lives of the youth. What products do you supply to schools? We create mathematics and reading programs for the children in South Africa. All lessons are explained step by step in full colour THE Proudly South African “Buy Local” campaign has welcomed news that over 100 000 new jobs were created in December. Reacting to the results of the Adcorp Employment Index released recently, Proudly SA CEO Leslie Sedibe said: “We welcome the announcement, given South Africa’s current unemployment figures and the world economic climate. Let’s do all we can as a nation to encour-

with audio, allowing the children to work in a stress-free environment and even in the comfort of their home. The product range comprises of mathematics, reading and an electronic dictionary (with Zulu words included) and several educational games to stimulate growth and development. We also have self-marking tests which can assist parents with record keeping. We don’t know of any other program in the world that has all these three products packaged as one unit. What is great about your program and business? The Rock Series program enables us to assist previously disadvantaged schools and orphanages with their schooling academic needs and this gives them the confidence to

grow into self assured children and people.

What are some of the highlights of your business? We had the honour of helping NOAH (an Aids orphanage) alongside ABB, an international company. Why did you join the Proudly South African campaign? As a small business it is very important to have the Proudly South African brand behind us. People in South Africa want to know where products are made and want to support locally made high quality products. South African parents want to know that South African developers understand the challenges facing our children in education.

What are your goals for 2012? We would like to employ 10-20 more agents. If they each sell 10 units they could earn R10 000-plus per month. In this way we can make

Jobs boost given a thumbs-up age this trend in 2012.” According to the index, 103 327 new jobs were created in December 2011 – the fastest rate of growth in nine months. It’s also the first time since 2009 that no sectors reported a decline in employment. The index also shows that all employment categories re-

ported growth in December, with the fastest being temporary work (15 percent) and permanent jobs (six percent). “Our campaign encourages consumers to buy local products and use local services to help create jobs. “In 2012, we continue to call on

South Africans to support local products. Let’s stand up as a nation and rekindle the passion behind local being ‘lekker’. “Last year, Proudly South African also made a call to the industry to create 93 000 jobs as part of the ‘93 000 Jobs for Mandela Day’ campaign.

WITH the recent warm weather, thousands of residents and visitors have flocked to beaches and swimming pools, and the City has urged all bathers to exercise caution. Councillor Tandeka Gqada, Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services, says: “Our lifeguards are patrolling the beaches and public pools in full force and all bathers must please adhere to their instructions for their own safety. “Residents are reminded that alcohol is not permitted on beaches or at public swimming pools. This rule will be strictly enforced because the consumption of alcohol on beaches often leads to drowning incidents,” Gqada says. “Beach and swimming pool users must please take responsibility for their safety by familiarising themselves with the safety guidelines and rules below before using any of the beaches or public swimming pools.” She reminded people of the following beach safety guidelines: . Read and obey the beach regulations and follow instructions or advice from lifeguards. . Do not enter the sea if you cannot swim. . Only swim in areas supervised by a lifeguard – usually a zone between two red and yellow flags. . Never swim alone.

Local doctor nabbed for fraud A RYLANDS doctor has been arrested on a charge of fraud after practising with a revoked licence. The 46-year-old practitioner will appear in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court today (Tuesday). He was arrested last week after a man visited the doctor’s room for backache, caused by an injury at a gym. Constable Zita Norman, the spokesperson for Athlone police, explains that the doctor issued a medical certificate to the

patient. However, when the man presented the slip of paper to his employer, the authenticity of the document was questioned as it looked “suspicious”. He made enquiries and later discovered that the doctor’s license had been withdrawn in 2010. People’s Post was unable to confirm the reason for the withdrawal at our time of going to print.

Dog bites toddler on beach A

TWO-YEAR-OLD girl from Bridgetown, Athlone, sustained puncture wounds to her left leg after a Rottweiler attacked her on Clifton beach on Wednesday 11 January. According to ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser, the child was in severe pain when paramedics arrived at the scene, but an offduty doctor had assisted her. Paramedics treated the girl for puncture wounds to her left calf before taking her to the MediClinic in Gardens for further treatment.

The City of Cape Town said the dog had been impounded and the owner had been given a fine of R1 500 for being in contravention of the beach laws. City law enforcement officers also assisted the child’s aunt in laying a formal charge against the owner of the dog. Notices at entrances to Clifton clearly state that no dogs are allowed on the beach from 09:00 to 18:00 from 1 November to 30 April. People who would like to walk their dogs are permitted to do so with the dog on a leash from 09:00 to 18:00 from 1 November to 30 April and at any time from 1 May to 31 October.

On Tuesday, Detective Constable Daryl van Noi was following up a separate case, when a local told him about a known suspect trying to sell what seemed to be stolen property. At the same time he received a complaint about a house robbery in Aries Road, Surrey Estate, and immediately followed up. According to the complainant, the family were asleep that morning when they were woken by a noise in the main bedroom at about 04:45. Says Bennett: “They found an armed man in a bedroom. The intruder cocked the firearm and threatened to shoot

This comes after the home of a Danube Street family was broken into on New Year’s Day while the family was on holiday. Lieutenant Ian Bennett, spokesperson for Manenberg police, says the family discovered that various household appliances, including a plasma TV, had been stolen and they alerted the police. “Once the investigating official received the case docket, he visited several known outlets in the policing precinct and interviewed a number of people. Due to this police constable’s persistence, the perpetrators were not

able to move the items,” he said. “His diligence led him to a house where the plasma TV, which was sold for R800, was discovered. The buyer of the stolen items was also taken in for questioning and later released.” After following up more leads, a 21-year-old was arrested for housebreaking and theft. He appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court recently and investigations continue. The suspect was also linked to a housebreaking case in Manenberg. . Two guns were confiscated in Manenberg during search operations last Saturday. At about 10:00, a Toyota bakkie was stopped and searched at a vehicle checkpoint. Bennett says the two occupants, aged 22 and 27, claimed they were delivering bread, but officers found a .22 mm pistol with a filed-

He then switched on the light and the husband caught a glimpse of the robber, who then escaped through a window, taking a computer tower. When Van Noi heard the story, he went straight to the home of the suspect. “He confronted the suspect and found the computer tower on the bed, wrapped in linen. A cellphone was also retrieved. The officers searched the suspect’s room and found a toy pistol that was used in the crime,” Bennett says. The 21-year-old was arrested.

Former cleaner takes to the chalkboard TAMMY PETERSEN

AS the new arrivals at Mountview High streamed into the classroom last Wednesday, butterflies filled the stomach of Peter Hendricks. He waited over 20 years to teach, and the day had finally arrived. After years of using a broom and detergents, the 46-year-old father of two finally picked up a stick of chalk and started his teaching career. Hendricks, former head of cleaning at Kenwyn Primary, completed his degree in teaching at UWC last year. The road to realising his dream of moulding young minds was anything but easy, but after years of juggling his daytime job and studying after hours, he proved that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. “It was a great feeling to greet my first class,” a proud Hendricks, who is from Hanover Park, says. “I was no longer on the outside looking in; I was finally what I always wanted to be.” Hendricks was retrenched in 2004 after working in the clothing industry for most of his adult life, whereafter he volunteered at Mountview High – his alma mater – while he struggled to find employment. He always dreamed of teaching, but without a qualification, his chances of entering

working as a cleaner at a primary school in Strandfontein, after which he was a caretaker at a school in Ottery. Money was tight, but his wife and two teenaged children encouraged him to push on towards a tertiary qualification. Last year, in front of a crowd of spectators which included his own family, Hendricks officially graduated. He applied for a post at Mountview High and was officially accepted in January. “When I got the job, I was told that this school had been waiting for me for a long time. I immediately knew that I had made the right decision to come here,” he says. When People’s Post visited his classroom on Friday, he spoke calmly to the scholars, throwing in a joke or two to lighten the mood. “There is hard work ahead and I expect you to do your best at all times,” he told them. “And don’t forget: we always handle each other with the utmost respect.” He has great plans for his lessons, which he hopes will be exciting and interesting for the teenagers he will be educating. “Besides their schoolwork, I hope I will teach and inspire them to exceed their own expectations and fulfil their goals as I did. Life is full of opportunities – you just need to go out there and grab them.” He turns and starts chatting to the students – and grabs a broom and absently sweeps a dusty area. Third Age (U3A) will host a talk entitled Food security through micro-farming by Rob Small of Abalimi Bezekhaya. This free talk will be on Thursday 19 January at 10:00 for 10:30 at the Turfhall Sports and Community Centre Complex, Belgravia Road, Belthorn. Join U3A for an annual fee of R30.

Power cuts may be on the cards ESKOM has told the City of Cape Town there is a possibility that Cape Town could experience load-shedding in the next few weeks.

This is due to Eskom’s inability to meet rising demand for electricity throughout the country. The risk of load-shedding has been exacerbated by on-going maintenance work that Eskom has undertaken as it grapples with boosting supply capacity in order to avoid sustained power outages. As the load-shedding in 2008 revealed, the process is a difficult one. However, as responsible citizens, we can all do our bit to avoid the negative impact that load-shedding would have on our country by reducing electricity usage. Eskom urged Capetonians to use electricity sparingly in order to avoid power outages. It said switching off all unused electrical appliances or using alternative energy would help to conserve electricity. Eskom said it was putting measures in place to avoid load-shedding.

Marked for life SOUTH AFRICANS were elated to learn about the improved matric pass rate, nationally and provincially, for the class of 2011. The announcement was celebrated on the day of the big reveal earlier this month. Education authorities announced that nationally the number of pupils who had passed the Grade 12 National Senior Certificate examinations had increased from 68 to 70 percent. For the Western Cape the news was even sweeter, with the provincial pass rate increasing to 82,9 percent from 76,8 percent in 2010. The cherry on top is that SA’s top matriculant hails from Rondebosch High School. But how much does SA really have to celebrate when considering the basic requirements for promotion to the world of higher learning? Today, a high school student requires only a 40 percent pass in a home language, 40 percent in two other subjects and a lowly 30 percent in three subjects to progress to the next grade or to matriculate. To what extent does this meagre criteria for a pass rate ensure that students finish their school career with a quality qualification, armed with the confidence they need to flourish in the workplace? This lax standard hardly equips them for success in tertiary studies. In fact, it fails to mould confident professionals, skilled to cope with the demands of modern day industry, and places them at a disadvantage among colleagues with better academic facilities than that typically available at state schools. The message it conveys is that one no longer needs to work hard or strive for excellence because the bare minimum is good enough to pass. The responsibility to address this does not lie with teachers or parents, but the same officials celebrating victories of a seemingly flawed system. Stakes are always high when considering national education policy, and the foundation for any long-term strategy must be in place if you are to expect great rewards.

Thank you, SAPS, for job well done WE wish to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for a job well done and for the excellent manner in which Detective Van Noie of Manenberg police station handled our case, which he was not assigned to. We commend him for going the extra mile and believe that if the entire police force were as dedicated and passionate about their work we would be living in a crime-free country.

Also, a special thanks to Joy for her help and input. We really appreciate it. Detective Van Noie deserves recognition and a medal for his outstanding work. A very special thank you from the bottom of our hearts. He is truly one in a million. MR AND MRS LODEWYK Primrose Park

Remember there is only one God MY CHURCH is better than yours! My religion is better than yours! That is the perception that I do get when the topic of religion comes up. Even if you go to each and every church on earth to see which religion suits you, there remains only one God. Therefore, we as humans should re-

spect each other’s religions and not be scared to go into any church. We also need to fear God, only then can we become morally and spiritually better people. Peace and good luck for the coming new year. PATRICK ABRAHAMS

Stand by – or beside – your man STAND by your man or even behind him since as you well know behind every successful man... Stand by your man in the name of fair play anti-racism and anti-sexism (will an honourable handshake do?) Stand by your man duly chastised from above (fined 30 pieces of silver) some footballers close ranks team-solidarity on a Tshirt business is as is usual I didn’t mean to hurt you

it was just a cultural slipup “I don’t talk to blacks” it sounds almost like home a tête-à-tête amidst kinsmen (Perchance he missed the Learning is Forever programme back in his native Uruguay) While here we put up with a jou ma se... I hear from a male taxi driver on the Hanover Park route and a Mother City hawker offers someone her middle finger But wait, maybe I am getting ahead

After all, it is only a game on and off of the field The hawker and the taxi driver were doing the norm on a Cape Flats street; while a footballer mades the news with his tribal greeting – a few times over – in Spanish, out in the old empire. And you can read about the Learning is Forever programme in the latest Adult Education and Development journal, number 77 2011 (Non-formal Continuing Education – The Uruguayan Experience).

Qur’an condemns violence I WISH to state uneqivocally that I as a Muslim, and the majority of Muslims, condemn the insane violence against the Christians in Nigeria by the sect Boko Haram. The Qur’an, the Islamic Law Book, explicitly condemns such acts against innocent people who do no harm to Muslims. I quote just three verses out of scores in the Qur’an. Chap 4 verse 135: “O ye who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor; for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” Chap 5 verse 8: “O ye who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety; and fear Allah.

For Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” Chap 16 verse 90: “Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality kith and kin, and Allah forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition.” Ignorance is the greatest danger as that breeds violence. Education brings about understanding and free choice. There is much to write but because of space in your newspaper I have kept this short. Chap 2 verse 256: “Let there be no compulsion in religion…..” Chap 10 verses 99: “...wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?” My family and I express our sincere and profound condolences to people and the families that have suffered loss of life and property. May sanity prevail. Thank you, A MOOSA Crawford

PSA member makes a difference in education AS PART of its back-to-school campaign, Proudly South African has lauded three member companies making a positive difference in education, the lives of children and in job creation. This week, People’s Post spoke to Chanine Nel, owner of Rock Series, which specialises in supplying schools with mathematics and reading program software from Grades 0 to 10. Rock Series was founded in 2004 by Chanine, who was inspired to make a difference in the lives of the youth. What products do you supply to schools? We create mathematics and reading programs for the children in South Africa. All lessons are explained step by step in full colour THE Proudly South African “Buy Local” campaign has welcomed news that over 100 000 new jobs were created in December. Reacting to the results of the Adcorp Employment Index released recently, Proudly SA CEO Leslie Sedibe said: “We welcome the announcement, given South Africa’s current unemployment figures and the world economic climate. Let’s do all we can as a nation to encour-

with audio, allowing the children to work in a stress-free environment and even in the comfort of their home. The product range comprises of mathematics, reading and an electronic dictionary (with Zulu words included) and several educational games to stimulate growth and development. We also have self-marking tests which can assist parents with record keeping. We don’t know of any other program in the world that has all these three products packaged as one unit.

What are some of the highlights of your business? We had the honour of helping NOAH (an Aids orphanage) alongside ABB, an international company. Why did you join the Proudly South African campaign? As a small business it is very important to have the Proudly South African brand behind us. People in South Africa want to know where products are made and want to support locally made high quality products. South African parents want to know that South African developers understand the challenges facing our children in education.

What is great about your program and business? The Rock Series program enables us to assist previously disadvantaged schools and orphanages with their schooling academic needs and this gives them the confidence to

What are your goals for 2012? We would like to employ 10-20 more agents. If they each sell 10 units they could earn R10 000-plus per month. In this way we can make

Jobs boost given a thumbs-up age this trend in 2012.” According to the index, 103 327 new jobs were created in December 2011 – the fastest rate of growth in nine months. It’s also the first time since 2009 that no sectors reported a decline in employment. The index also shows that all employment categories re-

ported growth in December, with the fastest being temporary work (15 percent) and permanent jobs (six percent). “Our campaign encourages consumers to buy local products and use local services to help create jobs. “In 2012, we continue to call on

South Africans to support local products. Let’s stand up as a nation and rekindle the passion behind local being ‘lekker’. “Last year, Proudly South African also made a call to the industry to create 93 000 jobs as part of the ‘93 000 Jobs for Mandela Day’ campaign.

a positive impact on job creation in SA. Rock Series is also a part of the “93 000 jobs for Mandela Day’’ campaign and would like to create employment through education. “Today’s news is a fitting tribute to the legacy of Madiba,” said Sedibe. Although the number of jobs in South Africa is still 850 000 below the peak reached before the 2009 recession, Proudly South African remains hopeful that an increasing number of people and businesses will buy home grown products and services, to boost job creation and promote national pride.

Novice cyclist begins epic 1 400km ride LIAM MOSES

Intense heat, uneven terrain and hours of punishing exercise – this is what Sven Greeff can expect over the next 12 days as he cycles from Johannesburg to Cape Town. Greeff, an amateur cyclist from Alberton, began the 1 400km trip yesterday morning at around 06:00 and he expects to arrive at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town on 29 January. He hopes to raise R1,2 million. The 31-year-old father of two, who started cycling less than a year ago, says that a series of significant events in his life inspired him to take the trip. “In 2010 my best mate passed away and I went into a state of depression and I was in and out of hospital,” said Greeff. “My wife then bought me a daily devotional by Angus Buchan, which states that you should ‘take on a challenge that frightens you and leave the rest to the lord’. “The following Sunday we went to church and heard that the church was battling to raise funds for the Jeremiah 29 Community Care foundation – which runs a children’s safe house – so I decided to help out.” Each day Greeff will cycle four to five hours and travel approximately 130km on his bicy-

distance he usually covers in a week every two days. And anyone could be forgiven for thinking that he may be unprepared. However, Greeff is confident that his faith will carry him through. “The point is: whether I’m ready or not, I’m going to do it and the Lord is going to help me. That’s what the point is. Taking a challenge and doing it for the Lord,” said Greeff. “My reason for doing this is to prove my faith in myself and in the Lord. The fundraiser just came afterwards.” Greeff said he specifically chose Cape Town as the destination because he knew the trip would be “gruelling”. Luckily, he will not be alone on his journey. A small convoy of about six people will join him. The convoy will include representatives of the companies that sponsor his bike and kit. And in each province he passes through, an official car will accompany him for the full duration of his time inside the province’s borders. Greeff said the potential acknowledgement of his achievement was not a factor: “I don’t want recognition for this. I just want to raise awareness. “Although our plan is to raise R1,2 million, I’m not keen to know how much money I have raised. I’m not doing this for the recognition; I’m doing it for the glory of the Lord.”

Grassboots achieves against all odds LIAM MOSES

AT MOST football clubs teaching young players skills on the field is the most important objective, but at Grassboots Football Club, in Vredehoek, teaching players skills to use in everyday life is more important. The club was formed in 2009 after chairman Stuart Diamond realised that there were no soccer teams based in the Cape Town city centre. The side has since grown into an important support system for young footballers from all around Cape Town. Many of the club’s players come from areas such as The Kraal, Phillipi, Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha, and it is policy that no one is turned away, even if they cannot afford to pay membership or registration fees or if they do not have boots to play in. “I started this club to create a facility for kids in the City Bowl and to create a project where social change and social progress could be carried out,” said Diamond. “I’m a believer that sport is a tool for change. That is why the club supports children who would normally be turned away

because they won’t be able to pay fees. The club has a policy that those who can pay their fees must pay and those who can’t or can only pay a small amount will be supported.” The club provides players with everything they need to play the game, including boots, playing kit, as well as mentorship, advice and informal life-skills training. According to Diamond, the club started providing some of the players with meals. However, despite these obstacles the club has grown exponentially in three years of existance and has also racked up a few notable achievements. Grassboots had only eight players at the team’s first training in 2009. It currently has over 150 members. Last year the club fielded teams in eight different age-groups, ranging from U7 to U17. They will be represented by a senior side for the first time this year. According to Diamond, the club’s U15 side won the First Division league title, while the under U17 and U13 teams were both runners-up in their respective league and cup competitions. But Diamond has stressed that winning

titles is not the objective of the team. “We are a community soccer team that wants to create an environment where kids can feel safe, where they can express themselves on the field and fall in love with the game again,” said Diamond. “The key for me as chairman is that we have happy kids and happy parents. If a kid comes to a game and they don’t walk away smiling then we have failed. And if a kid feels happy then you will start to see the results on the field. We teach the kids that winning and losing isn’t the important thing, sportsmanship is”. Diamond added that the team’s success can be judged on the high level of participation from members of the community. The club has made several other important strides since being formed. Three of the team’s coaches have completed South African Football Association courses and two other have completed first aid courses. Grassboots FC will be hosting an open day on Saturday 28 January and anyone interested in joining the club has been invited to attend. For further information please contact Stuart Diamond on 082 387 7315.
