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.

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.

Idees vir ’n Warm Winterhart-projek

D

ie winter is hier! Die koue klop aan die venster, dit is tyd vir lekker pannekoek en sop, en die Kaapse reëns betrap ons gereeld sonder ’n sambreel. Maar … wat van hulle wat nie ’n sambreel het nie – ook nie ’n huis met vensters of ’n ietsie warm om te eet nie? Vir talle minderbevoorregtes hier in ons streek is die winter vreesaanjaend. Ons hart bloei wanneer ons ’n man, vrou of kind op straat sien wat in wind en weer staan en bedel. Die meeste van ons wil graag iets vir hulle doen … maar ons weet dat om geld te gee nié ’n goeie idee is nie. Hier is wel ’n klompie goeie idees; dit is prakties en dit kan maklik saam met jou gesin, jou vriende of jou klasmaats aangepak word. Só kan julle ’n verskil maak: MAAK MAGIES VOL! Maak blikkieskos bymekaar, en rys, bone, pap, langlewe-melk en ander nie-bederfbare produkte, en begin ’n kosbank. Daar is altyd gesinne wat daardie kos bitter nodig het, én organisasies wat na sulke gesinne probeer omsien. Julle kan hier ’n groot verskil maak – en só ander se magies so vol soos julle s’n kry! ÓÚGOED IS WARMGOED Die koue en nat weer kry ons almal onder – maar het jy al daaraan gedink dat daar mense is wat in hierdie nat winter nie skoene het om aan te trek nie? Gaan kyk ’n bietjie in jou kas – en loer sommer in jou broer of suster of ma of pa s’n – en tel ’n bietjie

die pare skoene en tekkies wat nooit meer gebruik word nie. En die jeans wat nooit meer gedra word nie (omdat dit te styf sit!). En wat van die opgevoude kombers wat al twee jaar lank ongebruik daar lê? Dit is tyd dat daai goed ’n nuwe huis kry! En onthou sommer ook daardie serp wat nie meer cool is nie. Daar sál iemand wees wat dit sal LOVE! Onthou die Engelse spreekwoord: “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!” MAAK KLEINGELD GROOT! Kies ’n organisasie wat jy wil ondersteun – en doen dit dan! Kyk, ’n mens het mos altyd ’n klomp kleingeld in jou beursie (dalk gooi julle dit in ’n bottel wat iewers in die huis staan). Moedig jou bure, ouers en die res van die familie aan om van daardie swáár sente – én die ewe swaar blink geld – ontslae te raak.

Stuur vir ons fo to’s van júlle Warm Winterha rtprojek!

Stel dan ’n doelwit: Hoeveel geld WIL jy insamel? En: Wanneer wil jy die projek voltooi? Vertel al wat leef en beef daarvan op Facebook en whatsapp. Kry nou sommer jou hele skool hierby betrokke. Gaan teken dan ’n prent of die skoolwapen met bordkryt op ’n parkeerterrein of sommer op die netbalbaan (hoe groter die prent, hoe meer plek vir die geld!). Op ’n spesifieke dag – of by ’n spesiale geleentheid wat jy met die onderwysers gereël het – bring almal dan hulle kleingeld en pak dit binne-in die getekende prent. Jy sal jou verstom oor hoe groot kleingeld word! Daar is ’n KLOMP maniere om in hierdie winter ’n verskil te maak. Hierbo is maar drie idees.

LIFESTYLE - MATRIC MAGIC

http://maxmatric.com/ matric-dance/

2 JUNE 2014

our matric dance can be one of the most spectacular nights of your schooling career and will be a memory that you never forget. But to get the most out of your night, you need to be sufficiently prepared so that you can have a stress-free, fun evening! HOW TO PREPARE - GIRLS: * The early bird catches the worm
If you are going to get your hair, nails and make-up done by professionals, it is best to book your appointment at least 1 month in advanced to secure your spot before the other girls steal all the good ones! * Don’t rush the fun
Give yourself enough time on the day of the dance. * Don’t book all your appointments on top of one another. Start your first appointment early (about 12) so that you have spare time if any appointments run late and so that you have enough time to dress and take plenty of photos. OUTFIT 911
 * Let’s be honest, split seams and pigeon-toed waddles in high heels just aren’t attractive. So, when choosing a dress, shoes and jewelry, opt for something comfortableyou will be spending approximately 6-7 hours in your outfit. * Make sure you can sit in the dress comfortably and walk in your shoes without cringing, especially if you plan on dancing the night away. HOW TO PREPARE - GUYS * Suite up
When choosing a suite, go for an outfit that you won’t get too hot in. You will probably spend most of the night without your blazer on, so make sure your shirt underneath is looking snazzy. * It’s a good idea to order/book your suite about 2-3 months before the dance.

BOYS AND GIRLS DATE DILEMMAS
 * To get the most out of your night, you should try to pick a date who you can talk to easily and who you get along with well.   * Also, you need to give your date enough time to prepare themselves for your big night, so don’t leave the asking part for too late. Asking two months prior to the dance gives your date enough time to sort out their necessary arrangements.

Girls o o o o o

A date Dress, Shoes Accessories Hair Make up

Guys o o o o o

KEEP IT CLEAN
 * You may already be 18, but help a brother out and keep it clean for this once? * Stay clear of alcohol, smoking and drugs before and during the dance. Its best not to indulge afterwards too because this really is a night that you want to remember… * Out of respect for your peers, teachers, parents, organizing committee and school, be well behaved and have some good oldfashioned innocent fun! * Don’t leave the party till after the dance WHAT TO EXPECT? * On the night
At the dance itself, there will be plenty of mingling and chatting. From the arrivals to the photos, there will be a great deal of attention on you, so prepare yourself for all the jealous eyes. . . * Food will be served and you may have to listen to some speeches and thank you’s. Clap politely and keep the sarcastic comments to a minimum. You will be smiling A LOT, so prepare for sore cheeks. All those photos will take their toll… * Lastly, just remember the whole night is aimed at allowing you to celebrate your 12 years of schooling in an enjoyable way with your friends. Make the night memory you will always cherish.

Let’s Cook! Lamb, Brinjal and Butter Bean Curry SERVES 4 TO 6 WHAT TO DO To make the curry, salt the Brinjal cubes and let them sweat for 20 minutes. Rinse under cold water and pat dry. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan and brown the brinjals lightly - don’t cook them completely. Set aside till needed. Heat the butter and one tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan, add the onions and let them cook gently till they reduce down to two-thirds of their original size. Add a few drops of water if need be to stop them from burning. Now stir in the ginger, ground coriander, cumin, cardamom, turmeric and chilli powder, and cook stirring for a few minutes to release the fragrance of the spices, adding a few spoonful’s of warm water at a time to stop them from burning.  Stir in the fresh chilli and lamb, and cook with spices for 5 minutes. Don’t let it stick. Add the tomatoes and garlic, season with salt and cover with a lid, simmering for 20 minutes. Lift the lid and add the boiling water, just enough to cover

the lamb, and stir in the cinnamon. Simmer till the lamb is tender; about 50 to 60 minutes.  While the curry is simmering away, make the Raita. Place the yogurt in a bowl. Peel half of the cucumber and chop very finely. Dice the other half (with the skin on) and stir all the cucumber into the yoghurt with the cumin, mint, coriander and lemon juice. Season with salt and add a little more cumin if you like. Set aside in the fridge until needed.  Just before you are ready to serve, add the beans, brinjals

and curry leaves to the lamb, and cook till warmed through. Stir in the fresh coriander and serve with roti. or steamed rice, and the cucumber and mint Raita.   Tip: Cook the onions nice and slow till they cook right down. The sugars cook out of them this way, giving you an amazing curry.

Health 4 JUNE 2014 and beans are secret weapons, welldisguised in soups and stews, it will add to the good carbohydrate content, only adding value. We all know eating a diet high in sugary, refined foods can’t be healthy in any way. Instead of focussing on the no-no’s, here are the list of extra super good brain foods that will give your child the fuel they need for proper concentration and good thinking, all day long!

School is all about learning right? Every school day is characterized by an array of activities, time slots and opportunities to hear, see and experience new information and in the end LEARN something new and valuable. As all children move through the days, weeks and months they make progress in the learning process and has to make enough progress to pass on to a higher grade. Learning=Brain usage The brain...such a fragile, but wonderful organ! Almost 70% fat and 30% water, hungry for foods that will release energy at a steady pace, helping it to form and maintain neurotransmitters. The all-important ‘workers’ that carry signals from one brain cell to another. The better you feed these messengers, the more efficiently they will deliver the goods! Feed??? Yes! The brain needs fuel, and giving it the best stuff, will result in the best performance! Good brain food Feeling blue? Keep it green! better. The brain unprocessed, raw, A bit harder eating

The fresher the loves uncooked, natural produce. all salad stuff in

*Vitamin B is one of the secret fighters helping to increase brain power and ability. It helps with the formation of neurotransmitters, and improving the action of acetylcholine in the brain, aiding memory. Stress depletes the body’s stores of B vitamins. Ensure to eat enough vit. B rich food on a regular basis. Eating, eating.... what about drinking?? The wonder-juice, H2O, water! Water speeds up brain function. Too little water slows it down and dehydrates the brain. When the brain is dehydrated, it releases cortisol, which

winter, why not stock up all the goodness in hearty stews and casseroles, salad on the side! The secret word for good brain food is complex carbohydrates. The molecules in it are long and takes

in turn shrinks the dendrites, the tree-like branches in the brain that store information and create memory....bad news for learning! You need to drink one 250ml class of clean fresh water for every 10kg body weight. Do the math and keep the glass full! A final thought....How far would your SUV travel on a glass of Orange Juice? Not far! It needs the RIGHT fuel to perform the task. Feed your brain the RIGHT foods, and get the right results! Happy brain-healthy-eating!!

WINTER HOLIDAY GUIDE 2 JUNE 2014

10 REDES waarom dit lekker is om ’n tiener te wees

Jy is nie meer ’n kind nie, maar ook nog nie heeltemal ’n grootmens nie. Amper soos daardie paddavissies wat al bene het, maar waarvan die vinnetjies nog nie verdwyn het nie! Dit klink nie altyd na die ideale posisie om in te wees nie, maar dit het tóg baie voordele … 1. Jy kan na jou gunsteling band se musiek op topvolume luister sonder om oor die geraas te kla. As jy lus het, kan jy die CD sommer drie keer na mekaar luister! 2. Jy sien jou vriende ten minste vyf dae per week, vir omtrent ’n halwe dag lank. Nog meer wanneer julle ná skool by mekaar kuier! 3. Jy kan vier ure ’n nag slaap en nog steeds vrolik voel. Jy kan selfs so nou en dan ’n deurnagflieksessie inpas sonder te veel newe-effekte. Om die een of ander rede verdwyn hierdie vermoë soos wat ’n mens ouer word – geniet dit dus terwyl jy kan! 4. Jy verstaan instinktief hoe tegnologiese noodsaaklikhede soos MXit, YouTube en iPods werk. Nuwe dinge maak jou nie bang nie, dit maak jou eerder opgewonde. Iemand hoef dit net een keer vir jou te wys – of jy werk dit sommer self uit – en dan kan jy aan almal verduidelik hoe dit werk. 5. Die wêreld lê oop voor jou, die moontlikhede is oneindig! Terwyl jy nou hier sit en lees, het jy die potensiaal om bykans enigiets te word. Anders as in jou ouers se tyd, bestaan daar ook vir jou die moontlikheid om binne die volgende paar jaar die wêreld te sien deur oorsee as byvoorbeeld ’n au pair of sekuriteitswag te gaan werk. 6. Terwyl volwassenes dikwels geneig is om te praat, praat, praat, is tieners meer bereid om hulle entoesiasme tot aksie te laat oorgaan. Jy kan hierdie vreesloosheid en gewilligheid om nuwe dinge aan te

What do you call the best butter on the farm? A GOAT.

pak gebruik om ’n verskil in jou skool te maak. En help om die wêreld ’n beter plek te maak. Aangesien jou manier van dink nog nie so vasgegiet is soos volwassenes s’n nie, is dit ’n tyd in jou lewe waarin jy geestelike groei kan beleef. 7. Jy is ’n meester van “multi-tasking”. Jou ouers verstaan dit dalk nie, maar om musiek te luister, jou toonnaels te verf én in die een of ander chatroom te chat – terwyl jy jou huiswerk doen – is vir jou so natuurlik soos om asem te haal. 8. ’n Fiets of ’n skaatsplank is ’n aanvaarbare vorm van vervoer. En niks kom by daardie gevoel van vryheid wanneer jy die eerste keer begin motor bestuur nie. (Hoe opwindend om te dink daar lê nog heelwat “eerstes” vir jou voor!) 9. Jy hoef nie bekommerd te wees oor die rand/dollar-wisselkoers of die goudprys nie, aangesien jy jou nog nie met beleggings of pensioenfondse hoef te bemoei nie. Niemand verwag ook van jou om al die antwoorde op lewensvrae te ken nie. En as jy dalk meer weet as wat sommige mense dink, kan jy dit tot jou voordeel gebruik. 10. Jy kan amper enigiets aantrek wat jy wil, en almal sal aanvaar dit is ’n nuwe modegier onder tieners. Nóú is die geleentheid om verskillende style te toets en uit te vind watter klere en aktiwiteite jou menswees die beste definieer. Deur René Badenhorst – Artikel uit LIG tydskrif

Best Car Games for Kids Banish backseat boredom without spending a cent! What do parents dread most about family road trips? It’s not the cost of filling up the gas tank. It’s also not traffic or toll roads or Sunday drivers. It’s the thought of their own little cherubs stuck together in tight quarters for hours. Luckily, there are lots of ways to keep kids happily entertained and enjoying each other’s company. And the best part? You can achieve it without spending a cent. HERE ARE OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST CAR GAMES FOR KIDS: I Spy. “I spy with my little eye, something red.” This easy-to-learn game is perfect for preschoolers, and can keep them entertained for unbelievably long periods of time. The directions are simple: One person spies something and recites the line, ending in a clue. Everyone else takes turns trying to guess the mystery item.

License Plate Game. When we were kids, everyone seemed to play the license plate game on family road trips. Armed with a pad of paper, we would write down the name of each province or district as we spotted it. The goal, of course, was to nab all provinces. If we were lucky, we’d spot a Namibian or a number plate from Botswana and Swaziland, too.

I’m Going on a Picnic. This alphabet-based memory game is great for kids 5 and up.

You don’t need a game board or any materials. The game can be played with as few as two players, but it’s more fun when the whole family joins in. The first player says “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing...” followed by something that begins with A, such as apples. The second player repeats what the first person said, but adds something that begins with B. So she might say “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing apples and bananas.” And so on with C, D, and the rest of the alphabet. If someone forgets an item, she is out. To be fair, feel free to be lenient and give hints to younger players. The last player to be able to recite all the items on the list wins.

4

20 Questions. This easy-peasy game is great for younger kids, thanks to its straightforward rules. Player One thinks of a person, place or thing. Everyone else takes turns asking questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no. After each answer, the questioner gets one guess. Play continues until a player guesses correctly.

5

Spot the Car. For families with ’tween and teen car hounds, this scavenger hunt is a fun alternate to the license plate game. Instead of looking for different provinces or towns, you’re looking for different car models.

Wind your way through planets and stars to get from earth to Mars. Remember to avoid those black holes!

12 DINGE OM TE DOEN VOOR JY 12 IS

Twaalf is ’n soort magiese ouderdom. Voor jou kind dié verjaardag vier, word hy as jonk genoeg gereken om by pretparke, museums en restaurante met goedkoper kaartjies toegang te kry en van ’n spesiale spyskaart af te bestel. Sy 12de verjaardag plaas hom dus in “’n ander klas”. Voordat jou kind 12 word, is daar egter ’n paar dinge wat hy móét doen om sy kindwees te vier! Soos ’n generaal sy rangtekens moet verdien, so moet jou kind eers ’n paar dinge doen voordat hy met ’n trotse glimlag kan sê: “Ek is 12!” 1. Leer fietsry Enigeen kan ’n driewiel ry. Maar as jy ’n regte tweewielfiets kan trap dat die wind jou hare deurmekaar waai, kan niks jou keer nie! Knyp ’n stukkie harde karton met ’n wasgoedpennetjie aan die vurk van jou fiets vas sodat die speke net-net teen die karton stamp. Dit maak die lekkerste lawaai! 2. Sit op jou ma of pa se skoot Voor jy mooi weet waar jy is, sal jy te groot wees om op jou ma of pa se skoot te pas. Vertel hulle van jou drome terwyl jy só by hulle sit: Wat jy eendag wil word en watter plekke jy nog wil sien. Jou ma of pa se skoot moet een van jou veilige plekke wees. 3. Leer om ’n musiekinstrument te speel Basiese musiekinstrumente soos blokfluit, klavier en kitaar skep ’n grondslag wat jou in staat stel om later enige ander instrument te kan speel. Musiek help ’n mens om vaardighede aan te leer wat gewone skoolwerk dikwels nie doen nie. Dit leer jou om gedissiplineer te wees, want om ’n musiekinstrument te kan speel, kos oefening. 4. Ry in ’n winkeltrollie Hoekom sal jy nou tussen die winkelrakke wil stap as jy in ’n trollie kan sit terwyl iemand jou stoot? (Dit is waar dat studente soms in trollies ry, maar dan sal jy moet wag totdat jy weer oud genoeg dáárvoor is.) 5. Word die trotse eienaar van ’n feëtjierok of ’n monsterpak Dra dit soveel as wat jy kan en maak seker dat daar baie foto’s van jou geneem word in dié uitrusting. Onthou, jou gesigsuitdrukking moet

by jou klere pas. Jou wreedste monstergrinnik kan eendag jou Facebook-profielfoto word. 6. Ooreet jouself aan iets Dit is orraait. Jy gaan tien teen een nooit weer in jou lewe jou mond aan daardie kos sit nie. Vra maar vir die grootmense rondom jou – almal het ’n kossoort waarvan hulle nooit weer wil eet nie, juis omdat hulle hulle daarmee volgeprop het toe hulle klein was. 7. Klim boom soveel as wat jy kan Nog beter: Bou jou eie boomhuis! Die beste bome is dié met dik stamme en takke wat naby die grond groei sodat jy maklik in die boom kan klim. Hoe hoër, hoe lekkerder!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED • Pair of old jeans • Scissors • Needle and thread • Ribbon or braided rope • Iron-on transfers, paint or patches • Velcro strips or snaps HOW TO MAKE IT 1. Begin by cutting out a back pocket of an old (but not threadbare) pair of jeans, being careful to cut outside the seams so the pocket stays intact.

Funnies!

8. Eet ’n “fireball”-lekker sonder om dit een keer uit jou mond te haal Ja, dit brand die wit waks uit jou uit, maar dit is ’n oorwinning wat enigiemand onder 12 met trots moet kan behaal. 9. Maak ’n kermisbed met soveel komberse en slaapsakke en lakens as wat jy kan Vra jou ma se toestemming en nooi jou beste vriende sodat hulle kan help bou aan die bed. ’n Kussinggeveg terwyl julle die bed opmaak, is gewoonlik een van die redes hoekom dit so lekker is om ’n kermisbed te maak. 10. Doen iets saam met jou oupa en ouma wat jy nie saam met jou ouers mag doen nie Vra vir Ouma of Oupa om saam idees uit te dink. Iets soos om koek vir

Ma - Vr: 8vm - 5nm

2. Sew a long piece of ribbon, an old belt, or braided rope to the sides of the pockets to make a shoulder strap. 3. Next, let the outside of the purse become a canvas for ornaments. Decorate with iron-on transfers, fabric paint, beads, patches, or appliques. More ambitious kids might embroider their initials or other designs on the denim for an authentic seventies look. 4. To hold the purse shut, sew strips of Velcro, buttons or snaps to the inside of the pocket.

What do you call a pig that does karate? A PORK CHOP. What do you call a song sung in an car? A CARTOON. ontbyt te eet. 11. Maak ’n tent in jou huis Jy kan stoele, lakens en kussings gebruik om ’n skuiling te bou of jy kan ’n regte tentjie in julle sitkamer staanmaak. As die weer lekker is, kan jy ’n tent in julle tuin opslaan en die nag daar deurbring. Onthou ’n flits. En as jy braaf genoeg is, ’n spookstorieboek. 12. Kry sywurms en laat hulle in ’n skoenboks met moerbeiblare woon Knip ’n vorm uit ’n stuk karton, soos ’n hartjie of ’n sirkel, en sodra die sywurm begin

spin, sit jy dit op die karton neer. Die wurm sal dan die vorm van die karton toespin. As jy al hierdie dinge reeds gedoen het, is daar nog bitterlik baie ánder dinge wat wag om gedoen te word: Speel met albasters, verkoop iets (wat jy self gemaak het) by ’n stalletjie (wat jy self opgeslaan het) op die sypaadjie voor julle huis, spring tou of rek, gebruik al die spesiale aanbiedinge vir kinders onder 12 en ry die hoogste en vinnigste pretrit in ’n pretpark ...

Jesse Linders is gekies is vir die WP o/13 Cravenweekspan wat gedurende die Junie vakansie aan die Cravenweektoernooi gaan deelneem. Jesse het ook vroeër vanjaar Wes-Kaap kleure vir atletiek verwerf!

Netball

Tiffany Gordon (U/13) and Nikita Hammers (U/12) from Somerset West Primary School were chosen for the Western Cape Netball team.

Mascot Birthday The Summies mascot, Husky, celebrated his birthday at Spur and the grade 2 learners wrote a poem about his birthday party.

International Book Night On the 23rd of April the Grade 1 learners celebrated International Book Night. They arrived in their pyjamas with their favourite book tucked under their arms! They listened to stories read to them by different people, young and old. It was fun listening to all the different stories and the different voices.

Hoërskool Paul Roos Paul Roos draf Boishaai óók kaf! Henk Neethling Die hoogtepunt van Paul Roos Gimnasium se hoogs opwindende en suksesvolle rugbyseisoen tot dusver was toe die span op 7 Junie ’n oorwinning van 17-13 oor die Hoër Seunskool Paarl behaal het deur in die laaste sekondes van die wedstryd die wendrie aan te teken. Paul Roos was met 10-13 agter toe heelagter Aidynn Cupido twee verdedigers gefnuik het en ’n drie onder die pale gaan druk het. Hy sy eie drie verdoel. Sy deurslaggewende breekslag het op en van die veld af pandemonium veroorsaak. Paul Roos se oorwinning was welverdiend – die span het, met speeltyd reeds verstreke, kop gehou en eenvoudig verbete bly veg. Herschelle Jantjies se goed afgeronde drie net voor rustyd is in die tweede helfte deur Boishaai beantwoord. Slot Joa Swart

se slim kortskoppie is kort dáárna deur Nico Leonard afgerond: 10 punte elk. Paul Roos het laat in die wedstryd ’n strafskop afgestaan, en Boishaai was gereed om te seëvier, maar uitstekende spanwerk het gesorg dat Paul Roos dié keer as oorwinnaars uit die stryd tree.

Sewesbokkies Paul Roos Gimnasium se O/19Arugbyspan beleef tans ’n buitengewone seisoen, wat bevestig word deur die insluiting van drie van sy spelers in die Suid-Afrikaanse O/19-Sewesspan, ses in die O/18-Cravenwekspan en sewe in die Akademiespan. Die drie Sewesbokkies was dus lede van die span wat as Afrika-kampioen uit die kompetisie getree het!

Hierbo is hulle, van links na regs: Herschelle Jantjies, Edrich Venter en Edwil van der Merwe. Foto: Alet Conradie

PRG se kultuurdiere sorg vir groot opwinding in die eerste helfte van die jaar Temmingh stap met TIEN pryse weg! Andre Liebenberg Die PRG-koor neem ook vanjaar vir die eerste keer in die geskiedenis van Paul Roos Gimnasium deel aan die ATKV Applous Nasionale Koorkompetisie, behaal Goud vir hul optrede by die Streekfees in Kaapstad.

Roelof Temmingh het weegstap met nie minder nie as tien pryse by dié kunswedstryd. Hier is hy en sy ma (en ook musiekonderwyser), Zorada, by sy versameling.

This music competition is open to all Boland and Northern Suburb students. It has a senior (grades 10 to 12) and junior (grades 7 to 9) division and students compete in instrumental, singing and jazz categories. Students play and sing in serious and classical genres and the prize winner’s concert, which is held at the end of the competition, is a spectacular show of local talent. Some of the pieces heard in

this year’s competition were; Prelude in C sharp minor by Rachmaninoff played by Andrew Laurie on the piano, Intermezzo Op.110 No.2 by Brahms played by Trudette Schumann on the piano, “Mr Cellophane Man” from Chicago sung by Brandon Tunnicliffe, “Take Five” by Dave Brubeck played by Michael Burke on the saxophone and “Chanson d’amour” by Faure sung by Suné van Zyl. The prizes were generously sponsored by Bothner’s in Somerset West and Somerset College. This is becoming a better known fixture on the cultural calendar and students are encouraged to compete.

Prestige Concert On Wednesday 14 May 2014 the area in and around the Rhenish Schools and the Endler Hall was abuzz with excited musicians and singers. All the hard work and sacrifices made, both of time and in practice, proved well worth the effort as Rhenish Girls’ High School hosted a very successful Prestige Concert. The music departments of both schools are congratulated on the performances of their students – they are a credit to their teachers.

Interact

Dance

The Interact Club at Rhenish Girls’ High - part of the youth division of the International Rotary Club –was established with the aim of identifying needs in the community and helping where possible. The girls have been involved in a number of outreach programmes, most recently with the safehouse in Kayamandi. The club had a cake sale to raise funds to buy compost and vegetables so that the safe house can plant their own vegetable garden. They also collected clothes and food that they distributed when they visited.

Amy Lamprecht (Grade 11) has been chosen for the Cape Town Dance Team (modern and hip hop) that will represent South Africa at the World Dance Movement competition which will be held in Italy during the June holidays.

In a familiar hockey stance, but with a spade instead of a hockey stick, Rhenish 1st Hockey team captain, Caitlyn Leslie, and vice-captain, Ash Rutherford, excitedly till the earth of what is to become their new astroturf.
