Dit is ons eerste verjaarsdag, en ons sê dankie! In Mei 2013 het ‘n handjie vol skole in die Boland vir die eerste keer AWSUM-nuus gekry. Nou, op ons eerste verjaarsdag is ons trots en dankbaar om te sê dat AWSUM deur sy tandekry-fase is en groei dat die biesies bewe. Ons bedien nou 64 laerskole en 56 hoërskole in 6 streke. Baie dankie vir elke leser, student, adverteerder en ieder en elk wat deel het aan ons sukses. Hier is wat ‘n paar lesers sê oor AWSUM: • Baie baie dankie vir die pragtige advertensie in die Februarie uitgawe, so by die editorial! Ek voel so bevoorreg en begunsdig, oorweldig en dankbaar. Ek is oortuig dat julle die perfekte platform bied vir my om te adverteer en my hart en passie te deel met die huishoudigs waar kinders is. • Uitstekend! Julle is voorwaar AWSUM!!! • Ek sien uit na elke volgende uitgawe in 2014. • As ouer van ‘n leerder by een van ons plaaslike

skole, het ek onlangs julle AWSUM koerantjie ontvang. Dit is ‘n pragtige kreatiewe konsep en ek dink dit verskaf fantastiese blootstelling aan skole. • I have just had the pleasure of reading your AWSUM newspaper! It is great! • Eerstens wil ek u bedank en loof vir die uitstekende skoolkoerant wat AWSUM is. Ek geniet dit baie en vind dit baie interessant. • Ek hou van die resepte, artikels en insetsels oor die verskillende skole in die Helderberg en omliggende area, dis baie interessant om te sien waar jou eie skool staan in vergelyking.

6 Ways to Keep Your Kids Healthy this Winter

Die Boelie

By Heather Montgomery / www.everydayfamily.com

Deur Karla van Biljon

Niemand van ons kan die realiteit van boelies ontsnap nie. Almal van ons het al gevoel hoe dit voel om geboelie te word, hetsy deur jou broer of suster, vriende, ‘n werkgewer of ‘n verkoopsman – ons weet hoe dit voel as iemand jou knoppies druk! As ons verwag dat alles in die wêreld net gelukkig, gemaklik, vredevol, veilig en in oorstemming met ons waardes moet wees, leef ons in ‘n fantasie wêreld. Boelies help ons somtyds om hierdie fantasie te breek! Kinders wat afhanklik van ondersteuning, veiligheid, besker-ming en goedkeuring bly, trek noodwendig ‘n boelie aan om daardie fantasie van ‘n vredevolle lewe te breek. Dr. Demartini sê die volgende oor boelies: “If you’ve got a bully in your life and he’s pushing you around, it’s partly because you’re not guiding or governing your own life. You’re not empowered in that area. Once you empower that area, the bully disappears. If you don’t empower yourself, the bully just keeps coming in to toughen you up, to make you stronger so you empower that area. That bully is your hero because he is actually helping you empower yourself.” Om te verhoed dat kinders in die moontlikheid van ‘n boelie dinamieka vasgevang kan word, is dit wys om vir hulle te leer hoe om hulle eie lewens te bemagtig:

• ‘n Gesonde maaltydplan en ge-reelde oefening kan kinders fisies bemagtig. • As ouer kan jy jou kind help om psigies hulle persepsies in balans te bring. Jy kan hulle lei om nie ‘n “slagoffer” ingesteldheid aan te neem nie, maar eerder hulle lei om te sien hoe enige iets wat met hule gebeur, hulle help om karakter te bou en ‘n sterker mens te word. • Sosiaal kan jy jou kind help om ‘n netwerk van vriende te bou waar hy/sy binne die vertrouens verhouding leer hoe om met ander te kommunikeer in terme van di twat hulle in gemeen het. • Familiaal kan jy as ouer bewus raak om nie nét jou kind te ondersteun nie, maar ook geleenthede van uitdagings vir hulle te bied sodat hulle nie afhanklik raak van goedkeuring nie. In die dans van die lewe kan ons leer om saam met die boelies te groei en onsself te ontwikkel tot ‘n selfstandige, bemagtigde volwassene!

As winter arrives, you may be dreading the colds, flu, and general icky-ness, that seems to accompany it. Here are six tips to help you and your children stay healthy this winter. Wash Your Hands


It’s estimated that children with proper hygiene miss 2 days of school each year, while children who do not practice proper hygiene miss 3 days a year. Teach your children to wash their hands well, and often. This includes before and after meals, after coughing or sneezing, after using the restroom, and when they come home from school. You can also use alcohol-based wipes or gels when a water source is not readily available.

Keep Warm


Make sure you and your children are dressed appropriately for the colder weather. Jackets, gloves, and hats are all important clothing pieces to protect against the elements and keep your body in tip top shape.

Eat Well


Make sure your children get wellbalanced meals. Give your family the vitamins and minerals they need, so their bodies have the energy to stay healthy.

Sleep

Sleep is one of the most important things we can do to give our body a leg up against sickness this winter. Each member of your family should get at least 7 hours of restful sleep each night, more for your younger children (10-13 hours).

Food Safety

As you prepare your holiday meals, wash your hands often when handling food. Keep any raw meats, poultry, and eggs away from food that is ready to eat or already prepared. Invest in a quality food thermometer to check the temperature of all of your cooked meals, make sure they are at least at the proper eating temperature. Do not use the same knives, cutting boards, or utensils to prepare raw foods and ready-to-eat foods.

Quarantine

If you still get sick after taking precautions, quarantine the family members. Do not allow your children to return to school until they are 24-hours free of fevers or vomiting. Wipe all surfaces with disinfectant, as well as washing clothing and bedding in hot, soapy water. Consider getting your children a flu shot this year to give you a leg up against sickness.

Use crates for book shelves

How to create practical book shelves by using ordinary pine crates. Using a few pieces of 10 x 44mm PAR pine that you can buy, you can make up your own crates for this project - and make them so that they don’t need to be cut in half or you can buy ready made crates at Spiro’s Mica. Paint the crates with two coats of water-based enamel. Note: Although this is mentioned at the beginning of the project, I would leave the painting until the end if you are going to cut ready-made crates in half. Just below any handle holes - if there are any - attach two keyhole brackets. Note: Use a pencil to mark the hole for the bracket, use an 8mm wood bit to drill out and then screw the bracket in place. Paint to the desired colour. To mount the crate book shelves onto the wall, use nylon wall plugs and screws. Use in kids room / study for books etc or in the kitchen for receipe books.

Port Rex Technical High School 4 MAY 2014

Link your brand to a school

Email - awsum@tiemedia.co.za or phone - 021 872 3880 Bridge Building Competition – 2014 All the branches of the South African Institute of Civil Engineering hold Bridge Building Competitions on a regional level in April each year. The winners of the regional competitions are flown to Gauteng in August where they are hosted by St Alban’s College in Pretoria in an International Bridge Building Competition. Pre-weighed kits that consist of twelve 900mm x 5mm wooden dowels as well as a packet of epoxy adhesive are handed out to participating schools. A set of rules and a few explanatory notes accompany these kits. Participating teams that consist of three members then have to design, plan and build a bridge which has to be submitted on the day of the competition where they are scrutinized and declared admissible for the competition. The 2014 SAICE Bridge Building competition was held on Saturday, 12 April at Port Rex Technical High School. Our team, which consisted of Stefan Stander, Jaco Van Heerden and Edna Stander (Stefan’s sister from Stirling High School), designed a bridge and tested the prototypes in the Civil workshop. These tests were most disappointing, the highest destructive force being 21

kilograms. Stefan promised though, that they would build a winning bridge after listening to some critical assessment of where they went wrong. The bridge from Hoërskool Grens looked very impressive and everyone was disappointed when it destructed at a paltry 35 kilograms. Port Rex Technical High School’s bridge was the last to be tested and although we only had to beat 35 kg, our team was very nervous as one of the team members had to stand in the front of the hall and explain why they had chosen to build a bridge on that particular model. Stefan chose to load the bridge himself and pushed, plucked, slid, nudged and aligned the bridge to his satisfaction. He stepped away and the judge started the turning of the winch. A student from WSU had the microphone and started commentating. The atmosphere was electric. The scale passed the 35 kg and went on beyond 50 kg until eventually the bridge destructed at 75 kilograms. Port Rex Technical High School’s team thus won the competition handsomely. The team would like to thank Mrs van der Vyver and Mr Fairlamb for their support, Lloyd Slatem and Sean Howlett as well as all the unseen people that contributed to the success of the day.

Achievement in Cycling

Dylan Petzer, a grade 12 learner at Port Rex THS, has taken part in the following cycle races over the past two months and has excelled, as follows:

Provincial Mountain Bike – Cross country event #1, in Port Elizabeth - 5th in the Junior Boys (U18) Harcourts Mountain Bike race for charity, East London - 1st in the 50km event – Juniors Harcourts Mountain Bike race for charity, East London - 2nd overall in the race

Congratulations to Dylan, Port Rex is proud of you!

Pistol Shooting

Matthew Scheepers, a grade 11 learner at Port Rex THS, represented the Eastern Cape in the South African National Open Pistol Shooting Championships from 28 April to 2 May in Cape Town. He ended up in the overall 15th position in the Silver Class. Congratulations to Matthew, Port Rex is proud of you!

Water Distribution Competition – 2014 All the branches of the South African Institute of Civil Engineering hold Water Distribution Competitions on a regional level in April each year. The winners of the regional competitions are flown to Gauteng in August where they are accommodated by SAICE in a Midrand hotel. All the teams are taken by bus to Monte Casino and treated to a wonderful evening. The Water Distribution Competition was designed by a Senior Lecturer at the University of Cape Town as a project for his third year Civil Engineering students. Dr Van Zyl has taken this board game to universities around the world and they are keen to participate in such an international competition. The possibility exists that the winning team at national level could represent the RSA at a competition in a foreign country. The aim of this game is to distribute three litres of water equally to three separate points on a sixteen-point grid. An elevated bucket represents a reservoir filled with water. A number of 6mm and 3mm pipes as well as a number of T-pieces, elbow joints, adaptor pieces, cross-pieces and blanking-off pieces are allocated to each board. Teams are given one hour to design a network to distribute the three litres of water into the three given points on the board. Teams are allowed two test-runs. Once they are happy that they have all the air bubbles (which should be called Murphy bubbles) purged from the network and they are confident that there will be an equal volume of water distributed to the three points, a judge is called, the clamp is removed from the

downpipe of the reservoir bucket and everyone stands back and watches the results.

Scoring is very simple. A penalty point is awarded for each millilitre, over or under one litre in the bucket. The 2014 SAICE Water Distribution Competition was held on Saturday, 12 April at Port Rex Technical High School. Our team, which consisted of Stefan Stander and Jaco Van Heerden, designed a network which they thought would serve the desired purpose. They remained calm (very important) and purged their system of all air bubbles carefully. After two good runs they called a judge and stood back and watched with baited breath. The little jets of water running into their small containers initially looked very impressive, but after a while it became evident that one of the containers was receiving less water than the other two. What they didn’t realise was that the container with the least water in it actually had exactly one litre of water in it. The other two were deceiving. When the three totals were added together, we had 40 penalty points more than Hoërskool Grens. Port Rex Technical High School was thus placed second in the competition. The team would like to thank Mr Piderit for assisting with the preparation of the hall as well as the support during the day. A special word of thanks also to Mrs van der Vyver and Mr Fairlamb for their support, Lloyd Slatem and Sean Howlett as well as all the unseen people that contributed to the success of the day.

Beaconhurst High School MAY 2014 5 Founders Day

On Thursday, 20 March 2014, Beaconhurst School celebrated its annual Founders Day. The day was marked with an assembly where the entire school was gathered in the hall. We had various speakers present, including two of our past pupils, Miss Angela Smith, and Mr Christo Claassens. The loyalty students are students who have been at beaconhurst from grade 1 to matric (gr 12). These students were also acknolowed and thanked for their loyality at this assembly. It was a great day for the learners and teachers.

Interact

KKNK

“Die kunste kom by mekaar” was the motto of a group of Beaconhurst learners who attended the KKNK in Oudtshoorn during the last school holidays. They arrived at school very early in the morning, but were excited to get on the road. The journey was long, but worthwhile as they thoroughly enjoyed the trip. They were exposed to the exciting Afrikaans culture and language and also did some shopping at stalls. They also attended informative concerts, plays and workshops, including a performance by Kurt Darren.

Blood Donation Month

During the year, Beaconhurst School takes one month and dedicates it to donating blood. We encouraged the parents of the learners to try and donate as many units of blood as they can as part of this venture. The SANBS then visits the school to tell the learners about the importance of donating blood and the learners who manage to bring in the most units of blood get rewarded for their efforts.

Bridge Building Event

The Beaconhurst High School learners participated in the Bridge Building events hosted by Port Rex High School. This was a fun event for all the learners and educators involved.

Loyalty learners, who attended Beaconhurst School since grade 1, are getting awarded for their consistent dedication to the school.

Lilyfontein High School Only the best coaches for Lilyfontein School

Daneal Steyn our 1st team rugby coach has been selected to be the head coach of the U18 Border 7’s side. Congratulations!

Matric Dance

The Matrics were transported to Venice for their final dance. As usual an array of transport was used to deliver the couples to the hall. There were the more traditional modern and vintage cars, but in addition, a few couples broke the mould and arrived in true Lilyfontein style; one gentleman pushed his date in a wheelbarrow, another couple arrived in a sail boat and yet another was escorted by Star Wars storm troopers!

Grade 11 English & Geography excursion to the Karoo

It’s not often that an English Literature book can be brought to life in the same way as it was for the Grade 11’s on their trip to Nieu Bethesda. They were able to meet friends of Helen Martins, a character in the Athol Fugard play “The Road to Mecca”, which they are studying. This information enables them to understand the difference between the character depicted by the playwright and the “real” Helen. They also enjoyed walking through her home ‘The Owl House’ and seeing for themselves the art work created by this eccentric lady. A visit to the Karoo wouldn’t be complete without taking advantage of the opportunity to see the unique rock strata, water transfer schemes and ground water systems. In addition, the learners were lectured by prominent famers on alternative farming methods used in the Karoo, were given an insight into the dangers of fracking to the ground water in the Karoo and saw fossils of creatures that lived in this area centuries ago at the Ganora fossil museum.

Hudson Park High School MAY 2014 7

Open Day

The School had their two Open Days for the 2015 intake of new Grade 8 potential pupils. The Principal, Mr Hewett and Deputy, Mr Alers gave talks about what Hudson Park has to offer potential pupils regarding the four spheres, namely Academic, Cultural, Pastoral and Physical. The evenings were well attended and the school tours to certain facilities and science labs certainly made an impact on both pupils and parents alike. Application forms were handed out and if you missed the Open Days you may collect an application from the office at the main entrance to the school.

Cultural

The Hudson Park High School musical production, Godspell, has received rave reviews and Mr. Pierre Perold’s personal attention to detail and love for the arts has once again shown why he is a multiaward-winning director in the Eastern Cape.

Academic

Academic Honours were given to Anri van Onselen and she received her Cum Laude Blazer at the recently held Awards Assembly. Kate Anderson was also honoured for her Academic contribution to the School.

Lulutho Ngcongolo (was the lead in Godspell) came 1st in the World Public Speaking persuasive speech competition in Lithuania last week. He is also an excellent flautist and outstanding member of our Jazz Voices. Anri van Onselen (Deputy Head Girl)
