Switch your lights off on Saturday

Join the symbolic switch for Earth Hour on 29 March 2014, in the hour of darkness from 8.30pm. History of Earth Hour Earth Hour first started in Sydney, Australia, in 2007 when 2.2-million households turned off their lights for one hour to make a stand against climate change. Today Earth Hour is much more than just switching off lights for an hour once a year. It’s a growing international campaign to encourage people to make sustainable choices in every aspect of their lives and the act of switching off the lights for the hour has taken on symbolic significance. This year South Africans are being challenged to go one step further by publically responding to the question, ‘How do you honour the Earth?’ with the intention of changing the way we behave towards the environment. “If we all add our voice by sharing our promise, we not only uphold our own best intentions but we can motivate those around us,” says Pedzi Gozo, Executive Manager of Communications, WWF South Africa. “The growing collection of promises forms an inspiring overview of the varied actions that everyday citizens are taking to make a difference.” Answers to this ‘How do you honour the Earth?’ question can be found at za where people and organisations have been making their commitments to protect our planet. Make your promise to the Earth by thinking about the choices you make around food, energy and water use – and what our wider impact is on the environment. Together we are stronger. Promises already posted on the site range from the simple, like unplugging the cellphone charger or eating

only SASSI green-listed fish, to the philosophical, such as taking time out to enjoy and appreciate nature, as well as huge environmental commitments made by large corporates like SAA, Nedbank, Pick n Pay and Woolworths. How do you honour the Earth? To make your promise, go to where you can fill in your personal promise for the year ahead. NEWS

Die Isa Carstens Akademie (ICA) bied ‘n drie-jaar voltydse Diploma in Somatologie, ‘n NQF vlak 6 kwalifikasie. Hierdie is ‘n belowende loopbaankeuse vir jong dames aangesien dermatoloë, plastiese chirurge en dokters in estetiese medisyne toenemend van somatoloë in hul praktyke gebruik maak om behandelingsprosedures aan te vul. Voornemende studente wat as ‘n somatoloog in die estetiese mediese rigting wil werk kan Somatologie studies kies as ‘n alternatief vir daardie kandidate wat byvoorbeeld akademies presteer maar nie vir medies gekeur word nie. Die Isa Carstens Akademie (ICA) is reeds vir 36 jaar een van die mees vooraanstaande opleidingsinstansies op die gebied van gesondheid en velsorg in Suid-Afrika en is ook die eerste CIDESCO (Comitè International D’Esthètique et de Cosmètologie) erkende skool. Terapeute met ‘n internasionaal erkende ICA kwalifikasie

is veral in aanvraag wat plaaslike en internasionale werksgeleenthede betref. Die kursus se bestuurs-en bemarkingsmodule bied verder die nodige kennis om ‘n eie sake-onderneming te bestuur. Daar is vandag talle voorbeelde van voormalige ICA studente wat suksesvolle eenman sake ondernemings bedryf, of in groter salonne en spa’s as terapeute en spa bestuurders werksaam is of op luukse passasierskepe werk. Volgens Isabel Roos, besturende direkteur van ICA, is ‘n belangrike faktor wanneer ‘n opleidingsinstansie gekies word, dat dit by die Departement van Hoër Onderwys en Opleiding geregistreer is, asook geakkrediteer deur die raad van hoër onderwys dus voldoen die kwalifikasies aan die Nasionale Kwalifikasieraamwerk se standaarde.Die ICA het kampusse in Stellenbosch en Pretoria en bied uitstaande koshuis verblyf.

Beaumont’s four head prefects for 2014 were announced on Monday after having gone through a lengthy selection process. They are: Ryan Louw (Deputy Head Boy) Mia van der Merwe(Deputy Head Girl) Samantha Smuts (Head Girl) and Dean Bundy (Head Boy). The 33 prefects to serve the school in 2014 were selected early in October 2013 so that they could closely shadow the 2013 prefects in the final term. They learnt to serve their school, to lead effectively and to work as a team so that they could meet the challenges ahead. Earlier this term, the student council attended a special leadership-training camp and, besides the staff’s input, the current prefects were also involved in the head prefect selection process.

De Hoop-Atlete Presteer Dertien atlete verteenwoordig WP in 21 items by WesKaapkampioenskappe.

Laerskool De Hoop

Daglig-Spreilignetbaltoernooi Wat ‘n ongelooflike ervaring! Sestien skole, 160 dogters en perfekte weer! De Hoop kan met groot dankbaarheid terugkyk op ‘n eerste vir De Hoop-netbal. Die dogters het met entoesiasme die aand aangepak, die energie was tasbaar en die belangrikste was die geleentheid om op ‘n vriendskaplike voet teen mekaar te kon meeding. Baie dankie aan Ernst en Le Roux Viljoen van HELDERBOSCH SPAR vir hul borgskap waarsonder die geleentheid nie sou kon plaasvind nie. Die bane het soos ‘n Olimpiese stadion gelyk! WATERSTONE SPUR het die speelsters se magies met heerlike hamburgers gevul.

Agter: Jeanelle Baard o/12 (gewigstoot, diskus), Zoë Williams o/12 (100m, 150m, 150m hekkies), Gabriella Ludick o/13 (200m), Leoné Olivier o/13 (800m, 1500m), Carli Claassen o/13 (800m), Mieke Basson o/13 (75m hekkies, 200m hekkies, verspring) en Johan Erasmus o/12 (diskus). Voor: Megan Keehn o/10 (gewigstoot), JW Ellis o/10 (70m hekkies), Adrienne Gallop o/10 (80m, 100m, verspring), Nicky de Kock o/10 (100m hekkies), Gerhard Eckley o/13 (1500m stap) en Thian Basson o/10 (70m hekkies).

De Hoop Primary School was the host school of the Dolphin gala, which included Stellenbosch, Somerset College, Somerset House and Rhenish Primary School. De Hoop Primary School made a clean sweep.

Tennisspan vaar uitstekend by Sun City!

Vanaf 17-21 Februarie het die 0/13A-spanne van De Hoop aan die Egalite Prestige Laerskole Tennistoernooi by Sun City deelgeneem. Albei spanne het tennis van hoogstaande gehalte gespeel. Die dogters het puik gevaar en die toernooi gewen! Die seuns het derde geëindig teen Grey PE en Eikestad. Ons sê dankie aan Agter v.l.n.r. is Morné Franken, Storm Vonck, Niel Raath, Kianne Lubbe, Alexa Rijk Genis en Heinrich Lubbe wat die Wilson- Genis, Judy Serfontein en Mikayla Furlong. Voor v.l.n.r. is Francois Lochner, Kyle tennisraketsakke geborg het. Gibbs en Jeanne-Marie Minnie.

T20 Krieket

Die ouers het die onderwysers die stryd aangesê tydens die Rooftek T20 krieketwedstryd. Ongelukkig moes De Hoop se onderwysers die knie buig as gevolg van die ouers se uitstekende kolfwerk. De Hoop sê baie dankie aan mnr. K. Bruwer vir sy borgskap. Lisa van der Merwe and Danielle de Villiers really enjoy playing at the Environmental Club at the Riebeeck Kasteel Camp.

Pappas wen onderwysers!

Hierdie pappas stap ‘n lang pad met Laerskool De Hoop! Na die somtotaal van 67 jaar, groet ‘Die Legendes’ De Hoop aan die einde van die jaar. Tydens die Rooftek T20krieketwedstryd het hulle gewys waar Dawid die wortels begrawe het – Pappas wen onderwysers!

Here stands the formidable Rawson teachers’ team, ready for the slaughter! Thanks to Mr. S. Van der Merwe of Rawson for their support during the recent and very successful Rooftek T20 cricket tournament.

and save a life!

Van links na regs: Altus Rademan, Niel Truter, Jaco Viljoen, Jaco Minnie, Dirk Truter en Marius Botha.

MARCH 2014 11

Water week

During water week (17 – 21 March) the learners discussed where water comes from, uses and how we should conserve it. Our grade 3 learners made raindrops with ideas on how they can save water.

Grade 1 outing

The grade 1 class read ‘In the pond’. After reading the book they decided to go and have a look at the school pond. Many of the learners did not know that there was a beautiful pond at the school! They saw water lilies and water pads, tadpoles, dragonflies and gold fish who nibbled their fingers.

Super SWPS atlete

Hierdie vier leerders het hul WP-atletiekklere verwerf. Caitlin en Jesse gaan die Wes-Kaap atletiekspan verteenwoordig.

PushBullet By no means is PushBullet new, but thanks to an update this month, the app is now one of the most powerful and useful apps you will ever install on both your phone and computer. For those new, PushBullet began as an incredibly useful app that would allow you to “push” links, files, or other goodies from your com-puter to phone and then back again. We have watched as the functionality for it has grown immensely over the last six or so months, but this month its creators added notification mirroring. With notification mirroring, PushBullet will show a pop-up in your Chrome PC browser every time you get a notification from any app on your phone (assuming you enabled it). You can choose to dismiss it on phone, turn off mirroring from that app, or go on about your business. I don’t know about you, but the fact that I don’t have to pick-up my phone each time it buzzes, and can keep my eyes glued to my computer, plus wipe the notification from my phone, is freaking ground-breaking. Go install this. Source:
