NEW DAWN: The City of Cape Town plans to take over the management of Kalk Bay Beach. PHOTO: MONIQUE DUVAL

O

pen fires, alcohol abuse and anti-social behaviour on Kalk Bay Beach could soon be in the past. But this will depend on whether or not the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Daff) signs a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) and gives the City of Cape Town control of the beach. The goings-on at the beach have been a bone of contention for several years as it is the only beach on the False Bay coast not managed by the municipality resulting in jurisdiction issues between the City and Daff. Law Enforcement and Metro Police officers have no authority to take action against

bylaw infringements such as alcohol consumption at the beach. Kalk Bay residents have often raised the red flag about unsavoury activities at the beach and fear the annual onslaught of swimmers over the festive period. Speaking during the Kalk Bay St James Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association meeting, chairperson Tony Trimmel gave an update on the progress being made. He said during December and January there were five drownings and the lack of lifeguards compromised safety of swimmers. “The drownings were alcohol-related, but there have also been injuries where children are diving into the shallow water and hitting their heads on rocks,” he said.

In response subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase and ward councillor Dave D’Alton said this could all change if Daff signs the MOU. Purchase explained, like any other Citymanaged beach, Kalk Bay will be managed strictly to enjoy the ensure of all using the beach. “We are happy to take over and the first thing we want to do is stop the liquor and the fires. We are hoping to have this all resolved before the new season starts,” she said. Kenneth McClarty, owner of Olympia Cafe, who championed the cleaning of the beach thanked residents who participated. The project, which commenced in December, was funded by local businesses and saw

He says residents have continually tried, but failed, to get feedback from Daff through the Harbour Users Committee. “It has been a long, tedious process and we hardly ever get answers about the beach, so this initiative is welcomed,” Trimmel adds.

MARINE LIFE: SONWABI BEACH PROPOSED AS NEW LAUNCH SITE

Slipway for False Bay coast LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

ocal boat users can look forward to launching their vessels on their doorstep in the near future. An application for a beach launch site is in the process of being submitted to national government for approval. The City of Cape Town is compiling the application for a marine access point at Sonwabi Beach on Baden Powell Drive near Muizenberg. This follows a broad consensus given by fishermen and boat users at a recent public meeting in Mitchell’s Plain. The meeting was held to decide on a viable and preferred location for a slipway between Mnandi and Muizenberg beaches. Gregg Oelofse, head of environmental policy and strategy for the City of Cape Town, says a beach launch site at Sonwabi is the only viable solution at this stage. Strong wave action, large swells and strong winds along the False Bay coast prevent development along this shoreline, he insists. “It is virtually impossible for us to maintain any slipway along this coast due to these factors,” Oelofse says. “The wave action, swell and wind strength make it impossible to launch and land a boat here unless there is a groyne which is too costly to implement in the next 10 years.” A groyne is a low wall built out from the coast into the sea, to prevent the repeated movement of the waves from removing parts of the land and to control erosion. Permission to build this infrastructure can take at least two to three years, he says. Sonwabi was chosen as a suitable site for an access point due to it being “slightly calmer and having less wave action which also makes it safer”. Oelofse says: “There is also better vehicle access at this site and a launch site at this

look at providing a tractor and trailer required to launch at this site,” Oelofse adds. Igshaan Carstens, of the Strandfontein Boating Association, requests a database be established of all boat users who will use the proposed launch site. “This will be used to coordinate the required training.” Driver for coast development and ward councillor Danny Christians says the application is a step in the right direction. “I will keep council accountable and ensure that in six months the application has been submitted and approved.” City officials committed to in six months obtain permission from national government to launch at Sonwabi. It is at this stage unclear how long thereafter construction of a slipway would commence. The parking area at Sonwabi will also have to be upgraded, adds Christians. Duncan Gouvias (20) grew up learning about commercial and recreational fishing. Speaking at the meeting, he said people needed to consider safety first. Ignoring the safety risks of building a slipway along the rough False Bay coast is not advised, he insists. “No matter how much money is spent, you have to ask yourself whether your life or your catch is more important. Commercial fishing will not always be possible at the beach launch site.” Christians says the beach launch site could only be used in favourable weather conditions. Athol Groenewald of Rocklands questioned the possibility of a launch site at Strandfontein Beach near Broken Road. “Why don’t you take the road away and build a launch site there?” But this idea was shot down. Oelofse says: “That is not a good idea due to there being a lot of wave action. The road has already collapsed because of this so building there again would be a huge mistake.”

beach would be safer for all beach users.” With beaches stretching across 300km, Cape Town has the most substantial stretch of coastline in the country. However, there is limited space for harbours and slipways due to rough seas and strong winds, Oelofse says. “There is a shortage of marine access points and the ones we do have are not in a great condition,” he admits. “We need better investments and resources to maintain what we have and we definitely need more access points because people’s livelihood depend on it.” Miller’s Point slipway is the most popular launch site and is extensively used by commercial and recreational small boat fishermen. “When the fish is plenty there is chaos at this site due to congestion, as it is one of the few accessible launch sites,” Oelofse adds. While commercial fishermen could use the proposed launch site at Sonwabi, the marine access point is intended for recreational usage. A study was conducted to investigate the possibility of a launch site at Monwabisi Beach, but due to it being a small recreational facility, this option was ruled out, says Howard Gold of the City’s Coastal Management Unit. “We would have to use almost the entire beach to launch a boat at this site which causes potential conflict with swimmers,” he says. “While this could be solved with buoys there is likely to be a big nod of disapproval from beach users should this option be implemented.” Oelofse says Monwabisi is a “sand and salt blasting area”. “It is not that we do not want to invest in infrastructure at this beach, but the challenges we face there prevent us from doing so,” he explains. Boat users who wish to use the proposed launch site at Sonwabi will be required to undergo training. “We will facilitate this training with the NSRI. Council could also

FAR SOUTH: ASSESSMENT ON THE CARDS

New help for homeless

NEW PLAN: A survey of homeless people in the Fish Hoek CBD, Simon’s Town and Muizenberg will be conducted shortly. PHOTO: MONIQUE DUVAL

espite various operations focusing on homeless people in Simon’s Town, Fish Hoek and Muizenberg, officials are going back to the drawing board. Following a meeting with members of the ward committees in the South Peninsula Subcouncil, officials have decided a fresh approach was needed. South Peninsula Subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase says a joint initiative between the Law Enforcement Displaced People’s Unit (DPU) and the Department of Social Development will see all homeless people being assessed. “We have done several operations but none of these have helped with the problem. Many return after receiving help,” she says. The survey will look at what the needs of the homeless are and how best they can be helped. It will also determine how many of them have been assessed before and various strategies devised to help them get rehabilitated or reintegrated with their families. Purchase says there are a few cases which have concerned councillors for some time. In the one case a homeless woman who strolls through the streets of Masiphumelele had been sexually abused by men. “She had been given help and taken off the streets but a few weeks later returned to Masiphumelele,” she says. Councillors have also looked into finding the woman’s family. In discussing the issues faced by the DPU, committee members said there was no dedicated Xhosa-speaking person who could speak to the homeless. As part of the new survey the DPU will be assisted by someone

In a question tabled at the April subcouncil meeting, Fish Hoek Community Police Forum (CPF) chairperson Tony Bullock raised concerns about homeless people who wait until Law Enforcement go off duty before moving into the area. In his submission, Bullock says Fish Hoek is plagued by 20 well-known troublesome individuals who wait around and enter as the officers leave. “They enter the various public places and commit petty crimes and other acts contrary to the various City bylaws. The problem is most prevalent on the beaches,” he writes. Bullock further explains in a meeting with JP Smith, City Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security, the CPF

asked whether shifts schedules could be adjusted. Purchase explains in line with this request the survey and operations will be conducted after hours. V Share your thoughts and comments. Starting with the word “Post”, SMS your comments to 32516. SMSes cost R1.

For the record In the article “Problem plot tackle plan” about the half-built La Diamante luxury flat complex, it was reported that the property had been bought by the “now insolvent Demetex” in 2009 (People’s Post, 22 May). The property was bought by Demindex Properties, and not Demetex as reported. The property was never transferred to Demindex Properties.

In addition, according to Demindex Properties’ lawyers, the company is not insolvent and is currently seeking legal advice for a compensation claim. A criminal case against the former conveyancing lawyer of owners Cape Shore Property Investments will also be heard in the Western Cape High Court in August. People’s Post apologises for the error.

EDUCATION: HELPING TEACHERS WITH DISCIPLINE

Revisiting the balance at schools MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

schools where teachers work with each other for more than 20 years and do not talk to each other,” she says.

I

f discipline challenges in schools are caused by 20% of pupils and teachers spend 80% of their time on the 20% instead of teaching the 80% who want to learn, where does this leave schools? A new discipline manual by the Quaker Peace Centre (QPC) called the The 80/20 Discipline Rule provides an answer. Using practical ideas and innovative initiatives, the manual provides teachers and principals with the tools they need to deal with discipline. The centre, based in Mowbray, is a nonprofit organisation which promotes non-violence in schools through various initiatives. The manual was launched at a principal’s conference held at John Graham Primary School in Plumstead last week. It focuses on three areas, namely the establishing of relationships between teachers and pupils, a unified culture of discipline at the school and the content of each lesson.

Checking in The manual takes a look at the importance of checking in with pupils each day. Using simple questions like “how are you feeling today?” or “what made you smile this weekend” may provide the teacher with the opportunity to get to know the pupils but also to build tolerance and respect among pupils. For Nicole Elliot, a teacher at Mandalay Primary School in Mitchell’s Plain, checking in helped to increase the vocabulary of her pupils. As a young teacher Elliot reflects on her first day on the job and explains how overwhelmed she was. With language barriers and discipline processes, Elliot explains, she often felt hopeless. “I went on a course at the Quaker Peace

Dignity Knott-Craig says the way pupils are nurtured at school will also go a long way to build respect and discipline. She introduced a group of pupils from Maitland High School who spoke about their toilet project. Fed-up with the bad state of the toilet, the school’s Peace Club got together and thought of ways to improve the bathroom experience which, they say, had stripped pupils of their dignity. Through fundraising the team managed to complete the senior girls’ bathroom and say a fresh lick of paint has stopped all vandalism in the toilets. They report that girls now respect the facilities more and pupils are no longer embarrassed when neighbouring schools visit. Knott-Craig says if schools want to teach respect and discipline, they need to ensure pupils are treated with dignity. According to the manual the school building and environment have an effect on pupils.

CHECKING IN: Margie Plantema, a Grade 1 teacher at Bergvliet Primary School, gets acquainted with her pupils on the first day of school. PHOTO: CHEVONE BOOYSEN Centre and learnt about the checking in process,” she says. “I started each day with the simple question “How are you feeling today?” she says. Elliot explains responses to this question from pupils including “happy”, “sad”, “excited” were banned from the classrooms. “We swopped words like “happy” for “jovial” and each day the pupils would start using these words when writing, thus expanding their vocabulary,” she explains.

WE

Respect Respect in the classroom is also highlighted in the manual and various ideas are presented to teach and provide respect. QPC Non-Violent Schools Campaign project leader Avril Knott-Craig says the interaction and respect between teachers will go a long way in fostering respect among pupils. “Teachers need to look at themselves and see how they behave before expecting the same from pupils.

Culture The manual highlights the importance of a Code of Conduct which is understood by pupils and carried out effectively by the school. Knott-Craig says establishing a set of rules will help pupils understand the impact and consequences of their actions. In addition, she says, teachers need to be given time to teach discipline in the classroom. “Once a school has agreed upon its own rules it is important to give teachers time to teach discipline and values in the classroom to ensure it is effective.” The manual provides an array of ideas and proposals to address discipline in schools.

In addition to the ground plan, the teams will create two-metre passages to allow vehicles easy access. Purchase also raised concern about the cutting of water hoses during fires. She explains that traumatised residents often cut the firefighters’ hoses, but this had posed a safety risk. The residents do this in an attempt to prevent the fire from spreading to their own dwellings. “When this is done the water pressure in the hoses is dropped and firefighters struggle. It is very dangerous and we ask residents to refrain from doing this,” she says. The agreement has seen many affected residents take shelter from their neighbours. They are expected to rebuild their homes later this week once the ground work has been completed.

WHAT A WHOPPER! Silvermine Academy pupil Liam Bartnicke (14) recently won gold in the under-16 category of the Western Province Angling Championships. He has also been nominated for the WP under-21 team. Bartnicke started fishing at the age of two and joined the Four Oceans Angling Club when he was nine. He was first selected for the WP under-16 team in 2012 and represented the province at the Junior Nationals in Durban last year. Bartnicke was also nominated for the national team, but was not selected because he was too young. At this year’s nationals, he captained the WP team which brought home the silver medal. He was also named the fourth best angler from 70 participants. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Challenge on national stage

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

Cape Town’s best under-17 sides have a shot at both regional and national glory as the Engen Knockout Challenge goes nationwide this year. The Cape tournament is hosted by Santos FC with People’s Post as the print media sponsor. As in previous years, five regional events will take place in Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, Durban, Gauteng and Cape Town with an extensive qualifying phase leading up to a top quality tournament over one weekend. The eventual winners usually bag cash, equipment and the admiration of the Cape’s football fanatics, but this year they will also qualify for the inaugural Engen Champs of Champs. The Champs of Champs will see all the regional winners face off in Gauteng in October, in a tournament hosted by ABSA Premiership side Supersport United. Engen group sponsorship manager Brad Bergh says it was time to take the next step after the 10th instalment of the tournament last year. “After 10 years of our involvement in youth development football, we felt it was time to take the next step in creating a new event where South Africa’s best compete against each other in the Champs of Champs, elevating the level of the tournament to a much higher level,” he says.

Since formation, the Knockout Challenge has influenced the lives of 18 000 participants across the country. Each of the five regional tournaments sees 16 teams play a total of 48 matches over three days. The tournament has been a proving ground for SA’s most precocious under-17 players and several of the countries top players took their first steps towards professionalism at the Challenge. Former participants include Thulani Serero, Ronwen Williams and Keegan Dolly to mention just a few. Ajax Cape Town won the title for the sixth time last year, beating Claremont’s ASD Academy 4-3 on penalties in the final. Pinelands club Old Mutual Academy finished fifth, Grassy Park’s Crusaders ended seventh and Mitchell’s Plain side Kenpark United were eighth. Hanover Park FC finished ninth and Green Point Salesians finished 10th overall. Ajax will be desperate to hang to the Knockout Challenge trophy and earn a chance to prove themselves to be South Africa’s best. The draw for the Cape Town Engen Knockout Challenge finals will take place at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday 22 July. The tournament itself will run from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 August at the William Herbert Sports Complex in Wynberg.

Fish Hoek resident is well on his way to sealing legendary status in one of the world most extreme forms of motorsport. Extreme off-road driving sees competitors drive over cliffs, up steep angles and over boulders in 4x4s which are either modified or completely standard. Sun Valley’s Mike van As competed in the sport from 2000 to 2010 and returned last year after a twoyear sabbatical. Van As finished his first season back in second place in his category and currently leads the standings after two events this season. “I came first at the second event two weeks ago and I’m currently on top of the standings,” he says. “It was awesome; it was one of those events where everything just fell into place – nothing happened to the car and I drove like a master. I showed the youngsters that the old man hasn’t lost it yet. There were two obstacles were no one could plot a route through, besides me.” The current season started in March and ends around November, with just four events left to run. At each event, Van As and his competitors must conquer 12 obstacles to claim the points they need to win their class, the overall event and the championship. The mechanic and business owner races in the modified standard category, in a Land Rov-

PHOTO: SUPPLIED er named Green Mamba, which he built from scratch with the help of his daughter. Van As previously competed in another vehicle, which had to be retired after suffering a bent and warped chassis at an event. Although damage like this is commonplace in the sport, Van As has never failed to finish an event during his 11 years of competition. This, he believes, plays a major role in his success and longevity. “The passion for the sport is what it’s all about, as well as the will to win and a very capable ve-

hicle,” he says. “Being a professional mechanic and having built the car myself plays a major role, because when you understand the mechanics of the car, you understand the weak points of a car. If your car doesn’t break, you can win. My mentor taught me: to come first you first have to finish.” He adds that his aim is to go one better than last year and take the title outright this season. The next Extreme off-road driving event will take place on Saturday 2 August at Zone Seven, on the N7.

Masi kicked off the season with a 25-11 win over Lagunya, thrashed Thistles 47-0, drubbed Bishop Lavis 64-5 and pummelled Peninsula 49-5, before brushing aside Richmond Rangers 42-3 at the weekend. The run of impressive victories leaves Masi on 25 points, three points ahead of second-placed Young Wesleys, with a game in hand. The Pumas will undoubtedly continue tearing apart all challengers, starting with Young Brothers who visit the Noordhoek Sports Field on Saturday 31 May. Brothers, who have won three of their six games and occupy fifth place on the table, are unlikely to pick up points. Meanwhile, Retreat RFC will play their second regional derby in as many weeks when they visit Lakeside to face Peninsula RFC on Saturday. Retreat have had an inconsistent season so far, losing four matches and winning two. The season started with a 17-3 loss to Young Wesleys, a narrow 8-6 loss to Lagunya followed and then a 26-23 defeat to Thistles. Retreat stopped the rot by beating Bishop Lavis 26-5, but then slumped to a 15-8 loss to Rocklands, before thumping Grassy Park’s Titans RFC 32-6 last Saturday. Peninsula have fared slightly better, losing two games and winning three. They opened the season with a 31-7 loss to Rocklands, but responded to beat Titans 18-8 in their next fixture, thrash Richmond Rangers 43-5 in the next and scrape past Young Brothers 18-23. But their run of wins came to a crashing halt against Masi and a crushing 45-7 loss to Young Wesleys followed in the next game.

However, form will have little impact on the derby, which features one of the fiercest rivalries in the Cape. Titans will also be in action on Saturday, hosting fourth-placed Lagunya. They lost their opening game to Peninsula, beat Richmond Rangers 36-8 and sneaked past Young Brothers 18-15. They suffered heavy losses in their next three fixtures, with a 45-15 loss to Young Wesleys coming between the defeats to Masi

and Retreat. Lagunya will feel confident of leaving Rooikrans Sports Complex with a five-point victory. V All matches will kick­off at 16:00 on Saturday. STEENBERG
