FOCUSED FOR FUTURE SUCCESS: More than 90 000 Grade 1 pupils across the province started school for the first time on Wednesday 15 January. There were tears and laughter as pupils lined up to get a glimpse of their new schools. Kendall Samuels from Hyde Park Pri­ mary School in Parkwood could not wait to fill her workbook on the first day of school. See page 10 for more back to school photos.

PHILIPPI: ‘NO’ TO DEVELOPMENT

Agricultural land saved TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen

G

rowing concerns regarding the development of a portion of the Philippi Horticultural Area (PHA) have been laid to

rest. The provincial Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning denied an application for development earlier this week. PHA committee chairperson Nazeer Ahmed Sonday was delighted to hear the final outcome and confirms “the matter is now put to bed”. “This is a victory for the people of Cape Town by the people of Cape Town, because that land can benefit so many,” he says. Sonday explains the water and soil quality

of land proposed for development was preferred among the farming community. “It would have been very bad if we lost that piece of land because it is of real quality to farmers,” he says. The outcry started when the City of Cape Town decided to amend the urban edge of the land to allow for possible development to take place. The erven in question is owned by private developers who were in the process of applying to build a mixed-use housing development in the area in excess of 5 000 units (“‘Bread basket’ under threat”, People’s Post, 30 July 2013). Anton Bredell, provincial minister of environmental affairs and development planning, explains that the northern sector of the PHA should be the focus of an updated via-

bility study. This may lead to the “agricultural viability line” being redefined in collaboration with the City. “Such a review process may open the possibility of releasing some well-located agricultural reservation land for urban development, the scale of which remains to be determined,” Bredell says. He adds that one of the main reasons for turning down the application was that the land in the south-western sector of the PHA was observed to be productive and a provider of many job opportunities. “To release any more of the actively farmed land for development purposes would not be responsible governance by either the City or the province,” Bredell says. Philip Bam, chairperson of the Lotus Riv-

er, Ottery and Grassy Park Ratepayers’ Association and committee member of the Red Flag Vlei, says the decision to refuse the relaxing of the urban edge is a “welcome reprieve”. “A valuable resource in an important section of the Cape Flats food basket will be saved for future generations,” says Bam. He explains that the PHA has a great potential for creative farming options and should be used to introduce new farmers. Bam can only hope that similar news will e received regarding the Princess Vlei shopping mall and taxi rank development, as the debacle continues. “I am sure ... he (Bredell) will revisit his decision about Princess Vlei and help us to save that important resource as well,” Bam adds.

upils who did not meet the requirements to obtain their Matric certificate are bracing themselves for round two. Supplementary exams are set to begin in February and continue until March. The closing date for applications is Friday 24 January. Candidates who have failed a maximum of two subjects qualify to re-write. Those who passed only three subjects may apply to write the 2014 National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams. Provincial education minister Donald Grant says pupils who were medically unfit to sit for one or more exam may also register for the supplementary exams. They must, however, provide a medical certificate. Candidates who provide documentary evidence showing that he or she qualifies for admission to a university or for an occupation, but does not satisfy the university’s requirements or the requirements for the specific occupation can also register to re-write a maximum of two subjects.

BEATING THE ODDS: MATRICULANT’S TRIUMPH

Overcoming life’s hurdles TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen

A

fter nearly giving up on school, a Grassdale High School pupil passed matric with flying colours. In 2010, Umrah Hassen (19) was in Grade 10 when her father was murdered and she was separated from her mother. That year she failed the grade. “I wanted nothing to do with school and I was not interested at all, but deep down inside, I knew that is not what I wanted for myself,” Hassen says. Admitting she was embarrassed, Umrah put on a brave face and returned to school to repeat the grade. She went on to achieve first and second places respectively in Grade 10 and 11. In her matric year she scooped four distinctions, two Bachelor passes and a 79.5% average pass. “I had to work really hard and I was up all night studying, but I wanted to make a success of myself,” she proudly says. She will be studying law at UWC and dreams of opening her own law firm one day. Grassdale High principal Dawood Tregonning hopes her story can inspire this year’s matriculants and beyond. “This is a pupil who gave up on her schooling career and she ended up achieving one of the top results at the school,” he says. “It just proves despite your challenges in life, if you set your mind to something and work really hard, nothing is impossible.” Grassdale had a slight drop in their annual matric results, dipping from 97.1% in 2012 to 93.5% last year. Tregonning says the overall pass rate at

the school have “improved tremendously”. Out of the 15 subjects, only three subjects did not achieve 100% passes. The school obtained 26 distinctions and 44 Bachelors passes. “This year’s group of matrics must understand it takes hard work, hard work and more hard work. “They must remember success breeds success,” he says. Zeekoevlei High School went from 88.6% to 89.7%, a result principal William Prinsloo, is proud to speak on. The school achieved 23 Bachelors, 22 Diploma and 16 Higher Certificate passes. “We are quite happy with the results, as the school serves a number of informal settlements where there are many challenges,” he says. Prinsloo will be looking to improve the relationship between the school and the parents this year. “Many of the parents just send their children to school. From there they become our (the school and teachers’) responsibility. Many parents do not even know what grade their children are in,” he adds. The goal for this year is to achieve an average pass rate of between 95% and 100%. . Grassy Park High School principal Marcia Woolward had hoped for the slightly better results, but the school remains satisfied. The school dropped by 1.8% to 80.2%, achieving 48 Bachelors, 75 Diploma and 19 Higher Certificate passes. She says the school will now focus on improving on the number of Higher Certificate passes. “We are always striving to be better and we are always setting ourselves achievable goals,” Woolward adds.

X marks the spot W

ith the national elections due this year, many South Africans will have their first opportunity to cast their vote, while some will be returning to the polls for their second, third, fourth or fifth national election. This year’s elections coincide with the 20th anniversary of democracy. People’s Post readers share their views on the pending elections.

APILE DONI will definitely be voting in the elec­ tions, as he is tired of corruption. He believes the party he votes for will be focused on the needs of the country. “It is important to vote because of the possibility of change,”

GUY FOSTER is in two minds about making his mark. If he does vote, he says his decision would be based on past experience. “Our country is fast going on a downward spiral,” he says.

KABELO EISTEI says voting gives people the free­ dom to be part of the country’s future. “I’m not fussy about the change to come because we have come a long way since 1994,” he says.

TAREN ANDREWS will only vote once she knows what political parties have planned for the fu­ ture of youths. “I am excited to cast my vote for the very first time,” she says.

BRENDAN ARENDSE will not be voting as he be­ lieves political parties and politicians are not pro­ viding for poor communities. “They want us to vote, but after the elections they are nowhere to be seen,” he says.

JUNIQUE WELKOM is a registered voter and is ex­ cited about casting her first vote in the coming elections. “I do not know much about politics, but I am sure my vote will count and make a differ­ ence,” she says.

STEVEN COETZEE says voting gives people the right to decide who would best lead the country. “I will cast my vote for change, for a better future – not only for myself, but for everyone. Those who don’t vote should not complain,” he says.

Power to people Powering up has become easier this year, as council appoints new prepaid electricity service providers. Residents will now be able to buy prepaid electricity from their cellphones and online, as well as from their usual vendors. A new cellphone vendor has been appointed by council, which will allow consumers to now make mobile purchases via SMS after registering on www.itronenergy.co.za. Consumers will still be able to make mobile electricity purchases via EFT from www.prepaid24.co.za. Consumers can register on www.mobilepower.co.za where all credit cards and Standard Bank, Nedbank and Absa debit cards are accepted. Capetonians can also log onto www.ibuy.co.za to order electricity via the internet with their Mastercard or Visa credit card. Those who prefer not to use technology can use a new service provider which will see scratch cards being made available at all petrol station forecourts. Point of service outlets will remain as is, with the existing service providers re-appointed. The new contracts were awarded after the previous ones expired, says Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg. The extra service provider was appointed to increase efficiency. “Should one provider experience technical issues, the consumer will have another option. Consumers will continue to be able to instantly purchase electricity from the comfort of their own home.” There is no cost to the customer in the form of credit fees, he says. “The only cost the customer carries, when purchasing via their cellphone, is the SMS fee their cellphone service provider charges,” Sonnenberg says. Cape Town resident Lesley Marshal has been using cellphone banking to buy her prepaid electricity and is pleased more options have been made available. “It’s convenient and fast, and I don’t have to go to the shop. My family has started taking advantage of it and now always ask me to buy electricity for them,” she says. For more information contact the Electricity Services’ Technical Operations Centre on 0860 103 089.

FAS: CHILDREN SUFFER

Count cost of booze abuse

than 20, which means they’re abnormally thin. “If you’re a poor, malnourished woman, alcohol will affect your baby far more than if you are a well-nourished, middleclass woman. So poverty underpins this whole situation,” he adds. Vera April, principal of Khanya Educare which operates from the Phumlani Village Community Centre, says news of pregnant mother’s abusing alcohol comes as no surprise. The educare takes care of more than 60 children. “It really is a major problem in our community and the worst part is that the children must suffer and live with the consequences of their parents’ actions,” she says. April adds that many of the children at the educare have developmental issues or are malnourished. “These are typical signs of FAS. It’s scary that there are still mothers who continue to drink while pregnant,” she says. Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says they are all too familiar with illegal alcohol sales in Phumlani Village . She believes the illegal sales contribute tremendously toward the socio-economic problems. Kleinsmith confirms two operations were conducted this month, with the latest arrest and liquor confiscation made on Friday 10 January. “Regular operations are done in the Phumlani Village area to address the problem of illegal selling of liquor,” she says. Malcolm Joseph, director of New Chapter Foundation, believes alcohol abuse in Phumlani Village not only leads to FAS, but also affects the behavioural pattern of a child. New Chapter Foundation hosts several programmes for children in the community. Joseph says many of the children mimic the adults’ intoxicated state. “Alcohol has a major impact on the community’s social fabric,” he says. Adamant that pregnant women still abuse alcohol, Joseph also blames the many illegal shebeens in the community. “There needs to be more police action and we have to (introduce) educational campaigns.” V The community can phone sector manager Consta­ ble Alridge Isaacs on 082 522 2883 or Warrant Officer Shaun Whiteman, Designated Liquor Officer (DLO), between 08:00 and 16:00 from Monday to Friday on (021) 700 3924 to report the illegal sale of alcohol..

T

his province is believed to have the highest rate of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) in the world. Statistics to this effect were released by the National Institute of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse showing that 40.5 to 46.4 per 1000 children are found to have FAS by screening. Phumlani Village residents believe the area is contributing towards these statistics. Resident Lonwabo Mkize points a finger at the many people making a living by illegally selling alcohol in the community. “We hear and see how police shut down illegal shebeens in our community, but it does not make any difference, because tomorrow there will be a new one (shebeen) operating and bringing down our community,” he says. Mkize feels alcohol acts as a gateway to other socio-economic challenges such as crime and the high rate of unemployment. He suggests more stringent action be taken against people selling alcohol illegally. Another resident Felicity Xulu says: “Our children must suffer because of irresponsible mothers who care only about themselves.” Xulu says the sight of a pregnant woman drinking alcohol in Phumlani Village is nothing new. She once attempted to stop a pregnant woman from drinking, but ended up with seven stitches to the head after being attacked with a beer bottle. “It is very sad, but what more can we do?” FAS is caused by maternal alcohol use during pregnancy and is one of the leading causes of preventable mental and physical retardation among infants worldwide. Infants suffering from FAS often have low birth weights; physical dysmorphology, most notably in the face and head; and developmental difficulties. According to a report by Professor Dennis Viljoen, from the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research (Farr) in Cape Town, FAS is the most preventable form of mental retardation worldwide. “Alcohol disrupts the tissue formation of the foetus, particularly in the brain, to such an extent that you get severe neurological consequences,” he says. Viljoen states that 60% of women with FAS children have a body mass index of less

LOTUS RIVER: BIG DREAMS

New young star on the horizon

TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen

A

rising star is set to light up the stage and put the Lotus River community on the map. Tracey Daniels, also known as Tracey D, is on the brink of launching her debut album, taking her one step closer to her dreams. The gospel, jazz, soul, funk and pop artist joined her first band, called Top Level, at the age of 21. She performed at several clubs around Cape Town. She also teamed up with local bands Icon, Qdrive and J-Tribe. “I have performed alongside many talented musicians and I have grown so much since then. It is while performing with these musicians that I have learnt so much and continue to learn and grow as an artist,” she says. In April 2012, Daniels started recording her album calling her new adventure, Project Tracey. Many of the recorded songs have already been an instant hit on the internet. “I have received so many good responses and comments, and the support and love I am getting from people has been incredible,” she says. Daniels says according to web statistics, her songs have already been played in more than 13 countries around the world. Her dream is to perform alongside South Africa’s finest musicians. This includes DJ Kent, Mi Casa, Tkzee, Danny K, Lira, Leanne Kistan-Dlamini

and Liquid Deep. “I love their sound and they are all great South African artists,” she says excitedly. Stage performances aside, Daniels also dreams of one day studying Jazz Vocals at the University of Cape Town, where improving herself as an artist and vocal skills are top priority. Learning to play the piano, which is her favourite instrument, is also on her list of things to achieve. “I believe that as an artist one has to constantly work at improving yourself and your vocal technique,” Daniels says. Her main influences are artists such as the late Lebo M, Freshlyground, Loyiso Bala and other local artists. The fiery artists’ talent has already found the mark, as she performed with Danny K, Clint Brink and Jacqui Carpede of Jamali, as well as making some local appearances where she performed her tracks. “I have had many setbacks and disappointments where my music is concerned, but I didn’t allow it to get me down,” Daniels says. “This time there’s no turning back. I’m going to work extra hard to make a name for myself and continue making music and improving on what I have.” She now has her sights firmly set on Westend in Rylands, where she will be launching her debut album, Invincible, on Friday 21 February at 19:00. There will be a cover charge of R50. V Listen to music by Tracey Daniels on www.soundcloud.com/traceyalicia.

ECD: UNLOCKING YOUR CHILD’S POTENTIAL

A foundation for education ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid

re you sure your child is being left in capable hands? Parents are urged to check that the early childhood development centre they enrol their little ones in is registered with the provincial social development department as these centres play a role in unlocking the learning potential of children. Department spokesperson Melany Kuhn says having a network of registered facilities means that the norms and standards as prescribed by the Children’s Act can be monitored by government. “This directly impacts on the total quality learning and development the child experiences at the facility. It also makes it easier to introduce a curriculum and learning and development outcomes for the children,” she explains. The department is directly responsible for the registration and monitoring of all ECD centres in the province and ensures compliance with the provisions and guidelines in terms of the national policy directives. “In addition, the department provides child care grants and subsidies when a centre meets all of the requirements and cares for more than six children. The application process and registration for subsidies remains a provincial competency and all queries and applications for registration

should be directed to the department,” she says. Mayoral Committee member for Social Development and Early Childhood Development Suzette Little says research and literature in the field of ECD indicates that the early years are critical for human development. These years of a child’s life are a time when they acquire the concepts, skills and attitudes that lay the foundation for lifelong learning. “Parents should make sure that the facility is not just a daycare centre where their children eat, sleep and play. The facility needs to offer activities that will stimulate the child’s development and must be in a position to assess whether they understand the concepts taught to them,” Little says. Colleen Horswell, chairperson of the Western Cape Early Childhood Development Association, says parents need to find out if the centre where their children are enrolled is registered as it gives them peace of mind that their child is in a place where the requirements have been met for holistic development. “They need to know if the centre has registered programmes, qualified staff, a conducive environment for learning, safety measures in place, as well as nutritional programmes.” Horswell says parents also need to understand that building resources do not always constitute the fact that holistic development is taking place.

Prank calls cause frustration The 107 emergency hotline received 27 536 calls in the first two weeks of December and over 30% of them were prank calls, authorities confirm. Pranksters are holding up emergency calls and could potentially rob someone with a real emergency from receiving assistance timeously. So says Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith. The 107 line is a single emergency number for use by all people living in and visiting Cape Town. Call centre agents are trained to connect callers to the nearest relevant emergency service provider, such as the ambulance, fire, police or traffic service. Statistics show an increase of nearly 8000 calls in December 2012, compared to the

month before and after. Medical emergencies accounted for 23% of the 57 406 calls fielded in December 2012 while prank calls accounted for 36%. The number of prank calls increases during the school holidays, as children call from telephones at home and even public telephones knowing that it is a free call, Smith says. “Prank calls are nothing new. We also know that prank calls are not the work of children only, so I’d like to appeal to families and communities to help us by discouraging this kind of behaviour. Ultimately, it could save a life or lives.” The 107 call centre has been operating for over 10 years and has a staff complement of 66, including seniors and supervisors for each shift.

Academy to polish rough diamonds LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

C

ape Town’s rugby talent pool is expected to deepen following the establishment of new academy in Tokai. The Western Province Rugby Academy opened it’s doors last Sunday with the aim of developing rough talents into polished professionals. A group of 48 promising players will spend the next year engaged in the academy’s rigorous and thorough high-performance programme. While they will represent the academy in matches against junior provincial teams and other similar high-performance centres, managing director Keith Milner says the players will also represent local clubs. “We are filtering players back into the system, so when they are not playing for the academy team they will play for clubs,” he says. “We have already been in touch with the clubs; we told them it is down to them to pitch to the squad and the academy. We are not going to force players to play for any particular club, but we have stipulated that we are only considering Super League A clubs.” Milner says he expects the inclusion of the players in local clubs to increase the standard of club rugby. The academy forms part of the Western Province Rugby Union structures and will work closely with the Western Province Rugby Institute in Stellenbosch. The Institute was founded in 2007 and has produced several excellent players. Springboks Eben Etzebeth, Siya Kolisi and Juan de Jongh are all former graduates, as are Stormers Scarra Ntubeni, Frans Malherbe, Nizaam Carr, Louis Schreuder and Cheslin Kolbe. The academy was founded with hopes of replicating this success.

But while the institute caters for only under-19 players who spend just one year in the programme before either being professionally contracted or released, the academy accepts players between the ages of 18 and 21. “You may get a player who gets injured while at the institute, sometimes early on his stint there, and that ruins his under-19 year,” Milner says. “That player may have had the potential to step up to the professional ranks. We need to make sure he can stay in the system and in a high performance programme.” Milner adds the academy will also provide opportunities to “hidden gems” playing outside the top levels of school rugby. While the Institute’s 2014 intake included players almost exclusively from rugby strongholds like Paarl Gymnasium, Paarl Boys’ High and Boland Agricultural School or southern suburbs powerhouses such as Wynberg Boys’ High and Rondebosch Boys’ High, the Academy has also seen players from Steenberg, Fish Hoek, Camps Bay and Simon’s Town high schools selected. “We want to ensure that we (involve) players who ordinarily would not be on the stage where they would get recognised,” he says. “We know there is a hidden gem sitting in most schools. We have gone out and found players who have the talent, but need to be given the opportunity. The institute doesn’t have the time to put the feelers out into the schools.” Both the academy and institute players will follow the same programme and will train together at least once a week. Academy members will also receive life skills training from psychologists and business experts. Players who are not studying will also be enrolled in sports related tertiary programmes. Any players interested in joining the Academy can find out more information by calling (021) 712 1559.

Milano aim to recapture winning form SHIFAAN RYKLIEF

M

ilano United will hope to return to the summit of the National First Division this weekend but a win may not be enough. The Grassy Park side dropped points in a 2-2 draw against local rivals FC Cape Town over the weekend and were overtaken by Chippa United as a result. Now Milano will be rooting for FC Cape Town to pull off another upset in their fixture against Chippa on Saturday. Milano were expected to brush past FC Cape Town, who were languishing near the bottom of the table at the time. Things seemed to be going to plan for the Black and Yellow, who opened the scoring in the third minute. Brandon “Junior” Theron headed home from a well worked attack down the left by Ganief Stellenboom. The visitors soon replied through Siphiwe Gwala, with the striker giving Milano goalkeeper Tashrique Goldman no chance and calmly tucking the ball into the right corner. Things got worse for Milano in the 25th minute when top scorer Lesvin Stoffels received a straight red card for a challenge on Jarrod Moroole. Despite being down to 10 men, Milano took the lead for a second time when Chad Robertson forced the ball over the line. The home side’s hopes of a memorable win were undone when supersub Mpho Erasmus headed home late in the game. Milano United managed to maintain their unbeaten home record for the season, but dropped down to second place on the table. FC Cape Town’s Zaphaniah “Zeff” Mbokoma and Gwala both came close to stealing all three points in the dying minutes of the encounter, but Goldman kept his team alive to ensure a share of the spoils. Milano will hope to return to winning ways when they face Jomo Cosmos in Johannesburg on Satur- RACING TO COVER: Milano United’s Junaid Sait (right) attempts a challenge on FC Cape Town’s Siphiwe Gwala during a National First Division match in Grassy day.
