Hobbies = Balance in 2014 One New Year’s resolution all of us should keep is to have a proper work or school - life balance. •

• •

Don’t make procrastination the thief of your time. Get up from the couch and make 2014 AWSUM! Choosing your hobby Hobbies should never interfere with time spent working or with time spent with the family. Write down you schedule to find time that you can devote to your hobby. Hobbies for the family The whole family can participate in a hobby. Here are a few options: • If you like adventure and exploration, try hiking or camping • Establish your own movie club and watch a movie once a week. Make popcorn, put on your pj’s and then talk about the movie afterwards. • Scrapbooking is also a popular family hobby. Print family photos and decorate scrapbook pages together. More hobbies to choose from: • Gardening: whether you live in the

• • • •

city or countryside, it’s easy to enjoy gardening. Photography is the perfect hobby for someone with a creative eye. Search online for a photography course near you. Learn to play an instrument. There are so many to choose from! Is your New Year resolution to lose weight? Maybe it’s time to join an organised sport. • Master a new language! • Sign up for pottery or cooking classes

Maybe you are more a peopleperson and enjoy meeting new people. Take a hobby that involves other people: • Wine Tasting • Flea markets Bingo Bowling Team sports Book Clubs

If you want to be certain, you should never get married. You should never change jobs. In fact, you might as well just stay home. Because I don’t know anybody who is certain. That need to be certain is just procrastination. Mark Burnett

Balancing work and life means making time for work, making time for family and making time for yourself and when you choose a hobby you can find a way to express your personal interests. Other advantages include time to relax to reduce stress levels, a physical hobby can promote exercise and you can also find new skills and uncover hidden talents. You may also meet new friends, keep your brain sharp or make money. The benefits are endless.

Tick this list in 2014 Sometimes, the smallest of household tasks are overlooked therefore the New Year signifies a fresh start in the home and is the perfect time to check them all off your list. Here are 10 simple but essential housekeeping chores you might not have remembered to do: 1. Rotate your mattress at least once a year. 2. Feather, down, and synthetic pillows should be washed once a year to eliminate oils, residue, dead skin, and dust that inevitably settle in the pillows and make them sag. 3. If you don’t remember changing your toothbrush within the last six months, change them all. 4. Now is a good time to take stock of your inventory and replace, repurpose, or give away any linens that are worn, ripped, stained, or otherwise unused, collecting dust in the closet. 5. Refresh closet sachets, or make new ones. 6. UV rays are an excellent (and green and free) source of disinfectant. You can’t exactly throw a rug into the washer, but you can easily haul it outside, fling it over a railing (or on a clean surface), and give it a few hours in direct sun to air it out and kill any bacteria in the fibers. 7. Rugs placed near windows and doors will eventually fade from the bright, hot rays streaming in (even if it’s indirect light), so it’s important to spin them around 180 degrees (after you air them out, of course!) and expose the other side to sun for even fading. 8. Give your cutting boards a good scrub using our all-natural solution, then oil them up to ensure they’ll last through the next holiday season. 9. Gather up your unused canned goods, ill-fitting clothes, outgrown toys, obsolete electronics, and recent gifts you have a feeling you’ll never use, and drop them off at the appropriate food banks, charities, thrift stores, or electronic recycling centers. 10. To be prepared for tax time (and maybe give yourself a little motivation), clean out your receipt drawer to make room for new receipts.

One of a kind care at Durbanville Pelvic Unit The pelvic floor is an integrated network of muscle fibres and associated connective tissue, which spans the area beneath the pelvis to support and protect many of the vital organs of the lower body including the vagina, bladder, rectum and uterus. As with any intricate mechanism, it can weaken over time through natural processes such as childbirth and ageing, leading to the development of certain medical conditions. Given the complex nature of the pelvic floor, these problems often require multidisciplinary medical intervention. The Durbanville Pelvic Unit (DPU) is the only practice of its kind in the Western Cape, offering a holistic approach to treating the pelvic floor through a carefully crafted combination of diverse

highly-skilled healthcare professionals and cutting-edge technology.

best course of treatment in consultation with their doctors.

Three specialists – drs Wynand Truter (gynaecologist), Frikkie Rademan (specialist surgeon) and Gawie Bruwer (urologist) – pool their skills to formulate a comprehensive treatment regimen for patients. Their expertise is complemented by the services of two physiotherapists, a dietician, a psychologist, a gastroenterologist and two radiologists.

The practice’s philosophy is to offer the best standard of care. Therefore they opted to set up the unit at Mediclinic Durbanville, a hospital well-known for its quality of care and technological leadership. In addition, the DPU has invested in the most advanced instrumentation including a 3D sonar, which is used as a standard procedure in every examination. Colonoscopies (colon camera), cystoscopies (bladder camera), defecograms (bowel and pelvis X-ray) and manometries (muscle test for the pelvis and nerves) are also routinely carried out for specific indications. All these tests form part of a full diagnostic work-up to ensure

This approach is highly effective, providing patients with insight on their condition across a wide range of disciplines. Based on this sound medical advice, patients are able to make an informed decision on the

the best therapy option for each patient. Keeping up with the latest developments in the field is another priority and the doctors regularly attend workshops. They are also able to call upon world-renowned pelvic floor surgeon, Professor Peter von Theobold, who acts as an expert advisor to the team. Due to the proven scientific approach taken by the unit and the long-term benefits to patients, medical aids do cover a number of laproscopic procedures offered at the practice.

Jean de Villiers shares tips on how to ensure a healthy new year

Gehoorverlies by kinders

“As a professional rugby player, it is very important for me to eat the right food and stay in shape,” says Jean de Villiers, Captain of the national rugby team and Resolution Health Medical Scheme representative. “Apart from the set meals compiled by our fitness trainer when we are on tour, I try to eat four to six small meals which include fresh fruit and vegetables as well as a balance of protein and carbohydrates when at home. Obviously I try to steer clear of junk foods but do spoil myself occasionally with a pizza. After all everyone deserves a treat every now and again.”

Daar is 2 tipes gehoorverlies in kinders: geleidings doofheid a.g.v abnormale geleiding van klank na die binne-oor of sensori-neurale gehoorverlies a.g.v verminderde funksie van die binne-oor self. Alhoewel geleidingsdoofheid die algemeenste oorsaak vir gehoorverlies is (4% van skoolkinders), is sensori-neurale gehoorverlies (0.3%) die ernstigste en meer permanente oorsaak.

According to de Villiers, eating foods that are low in calories do not necessarily mean you are doing the right thing for your body. “The foods you include in your diet need to be nutritious and provide energy that is sustainable. For example, when we are doing intense training I take some whey protein and glutamine supplements to help with recovery. It also assists me to be fresh for the next day’s training,” he says. De Villiers also highlighted the importance of exercise in leading a healthy lifestyle, particularly in light of a recent survey finding that 49% of South Africans do not exercise at all. “You don’t necessarily have to visit the gym five times a week to work on your fitness levels. You can incorporate exercise into your hobbies as well. For example, apart from my rigorous training schedule, I like to be active during my

downtime by playing a round of golf with my mates and walking my dogs. In fact, an average 18-hole round of golf requires anything between three and five hours of walking, translating into a good workout while doing what you love most. “Training forms a very big part of my life and in a normal week we would have six to 10 training sessions and then a game on the weekend. A typical training session would include spending time in the gym combined with on-field sessions. Each session would last anything from 60min to 120min and the intensity would vary,” says De Villiers. Healthy adults should ideally aim for 30minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per day, five times a week with the aim being to increase the resting heart rate for the entire period. This threshold is usually around 180 beats per minute minus your age, provided the individual is otherwise healthy.

Tydelike gehoorverlies a.g.v Eustachiese buis wanfunksie (vog in die middeloor) of middeloor infeksies is algemeen en word behandel met medikasie of ventilasie buisies. Permanente gehoorverlies is dikwels teenwoordig met geboorte maar in ongeveer 10-20% van gevalle van gehoorverlies word dit na geboorte opgedoen. Die risiko faktore vir sensori-neurale gehoorverlies sluit in: familie geskiedenis van doofheid, sekere infeksies tydens swangerskap (rubella, pampoentjies, meningitis), sekere medikasies wat die binne-oor mag aantas, sekere sind rome geassosieer met gehoorverlies, komplikasies tydens/ na geboorte, prematuriteit, lae APGAR telling, erge geelsug en hoofbeserings. Indien babas enige van hierdie risiko faktore het moet gehoortoetse aangevra word. In 20-30% van gevalle is die oorsaak egter onbekend. Die persentasie van gehoorverlies hang van die ouderdom van aankoms en graad van gehoorverlies af. Erge gehoorverlies word

gewoonlik teen 6-9 maande vasgestel. Matiger gehoorverlies presenteer gewoonlik met spraak en taal agterstand, gedragsprobleme of swak skoolvordering. Indien n kind spesifiek met spraak agterstand sukkel moet gehoortoetse in die eerste instansie gedoen word. Hoe vinniger gehoorverlies, veral erge sensori- neurale¬ gehoorverlies opgetel word, hoe vinniger kan behandeling begin word en hoe beter die uitkoms vir die kind. Kinders met doofheid benodig ook spesiale onderrig en skole vir gehoor gestremde kinders is daar om hierdie funksies te verrig.

Be sure to get your sleep this year An increase in the amount and quality of shut-eye should be at the top of everyone’s New Year’s Resolution list as numerous studies have proven the physical and emotional health benefit of getting 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night. This is according to Doctor Jacques Snyman, clinical advisor for Resolution Health Medical Scheme. “Various studies have proven the power of regular, sufficient and quality sleep with results showing a marked increase in memory, learning, creativity, productivity, emotional stability and physical health. In fact, the Ryerson University of Toronto found that curing insomnia in people with depression doubled their chance of a full recovery,” Snyman highlights. It can even help you to lose weight with a Brigham Young University study revealing that higher quality sleep of 8.5 hours a night is associated with a lower body fat percentage. An inadequate amount of sleep can also result in a number of negative implications

for one’s health, including obesity, hypertension, heart and blood vessel disease and diabetes, as well as possible harmful effects on mental health. Sleeping tips • Where possible, stick to a regular routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time • Incorporate a relaxing pre-sleep ritual into your daily routine. Examples include having a warm bath, reading a book or having a warm cup of herbal tea • Exercise daily • Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, coffee and heavy meals 2 – 3 hours before bedtime • Create a sleep inducing environment: dark, quiet and cool Getting sufficient sleep is one of the easiest ways to improve your lifestyle and basic health. Thankfully, it’s a rather enjoyable activity to add to your New Year’s Resolution list and not hard to incorporate into your everyday life.

Live healthy with your own vegetable garden Wouldn’t we all love to cook with organic vegetables, but our busy schedules force us to buy not so fresh veggies from the local supermarket. Growing your own vegetable garden isn’t only a fun-filled activity, but also rewarding when you can cook out of your garden.

We share a few tips with you to get that garden going: 1. Soil For most types of gardens, the perfect soil is a quality light loam made up of nutrientrich organic matter and a composition of relatively equal amounts of sand, silt and clay. In general, the more organic matter the better. 2. Which is better – seeds or seedlings? It’s certainly easier to start your vegetable

garden by planting directly into the garden, by-passing indoor seed starting and transplanting. However some vegetables take several months to mature from seed, so it’s just not practical to direct sow them in the garden where the growing season is short. That’s why, when it comes to long season plants like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant, most gardeners either start their own plants indoors or purchase seedlings from the nursery.

Have a great 2014 with us! c/o Aurora en Burton Street, Aurora, Durbanville Tel: 021 975 9730 | Fax: 021 975 9731

3.Garden VS Containers and pots You don’t need a plot of land to grow fresh vegetables. Many vegetables lend themselves well to container gardening. With some thought to selecting bush or dwarf varieties, almost any vegetable can be adapted to growing in a pot.. 4.No space? Do it indoors! Growing edibles indoors gives you yearround access to seasonal favourites.

Healthy lunchbox ideas for school or work Have a healthy approach for lunch in 2014. It is possible to pack your child a nutritious lunch box that will actually come home at the end of the day empty and eaten. The AWSUM Kombuis shares a few ideas. Homemade Granola Bars Preparation time: 2 hours

Frozen Fruit Cups Preparation time: 30 minutes

The Cafeteria Club Preparation time: 5 minutes

1/2 cup peanut butter or sunbutter 1/3 cup honey 1/4 cup coconut oil (or another oil of your choice) 1 cup oats 1 cup total of any combination of: sesame seeds, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, mini chocolate chips

In a medium sized saucepan, melt together peanut butter, honey and coconut oil. Remove from heat and add one cup of oats. Choose your favorite combination of coconut flakes, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, dried fruit and mini chocolate chips, to equal a total of ONE CUP. (I just got out my one cup measuring cup and poured in the ingredients until the cup was full.) Pour in and stir well. Stir well, then spread mixture into a 8×8 or 9×4 pan. Chill for two hours, then cut into bars. Wrap in plastic wrap for a quick grab and go snack!

2 cans crushed pineapple, undrained 2 packages frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed 1 can fruit cocktail, undrained 1 can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed 3/4 cup thawed lemonade concentrate 6 medium firm bananas, cubed

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Pour into foil-lined muffin cups or individual plastic beverage glasses. Freeze until solid. When ready to serve, thaw for 30-45 minutes before serving. (10 servings.)

Wrap: oven roasted turkey breast, low sodium ham, 1 slice crumbled center cut bacon, 1 tablespoon guacamole on half a whole wheat wrap and tomato mozzarella skewer (cut one lower sodium part-skim mozzarella stick into fourths and skewer with cherry tomatoes alternately) + 8 vanilla wafers.

Save the cheese for the skewers, and opt for tasty guacamole instead of mayo for the wrap. Slice the wrap into medallions and skewer on toothpicks for less mess at lunchtime.

Lunch Box Planner MONDAY

Think about what your child likes to eat at home and try to translate that into a lunch box option. Vegetables are often overlooked in the lunch box. Try cutting up some carrot sticks or putting in a handful of cherry tomatoes. While the humble apple is a great lunch box filler (sturdy and hard to squash), consider cutting softer fruit up and putting it into a smaller container for protection. Berries and kiwi fruit survive very well this way. Dairy can be hard to include, particularly in hot weather. If you can’t safely get a yoghurt into the lunch box, make sure you offer dairy when she comes home from school. Last night’s leftovers in a container with a small spoon can make a welcome change to the parade of endless sandwiches. Try putting together a small picnic in her lunch box - slices of tomato, ham, grated carrot, grated cheese and some bread and butter - so she can build her own sandwich. Stick to water in the drink bottle - most juices are full of sugar and make the drink-bottle smelly. They also don’t do a very good job of quenching thirst. Homemade pikelets are a great snack - easy to make ahead of time, they’re filling and don’t require any extra toppings.

Die Leerderraad onderneem jaarliks ‘n fondsinsameling wat as ‘n blyk van welwillendheid aan ‘n hulpbehoewende organisasie geskenk word. Gedurende November 2013 het die 2013 Leerderraad die pragtige bedrag van R3 000 ingesamel wat deur Jaco Mostert (Hoofseun) en Demi Murray (Hoofdogter) aan mev. Louw van die plaaslike Meals on wheels oorhandig het.

Mev. Esmé Louw (Gr. 1-opvoeder) het gedurende die vierde kwartaal op eie inisiatief 147 geskenk-skoendose onder die ouers en leerders van Laerskool De Tyger versamel. Van die leerders wat betrokke was is (agter) v.l.n.r. Jandré Punt en Kevin Pringle asook (voor) Anouschka Strydom, Raulph Geiger en mev. Esmé Louw (Organiseerder).

Laerskool De Tyger

Natasha Martins is aangewys as die Victrix Ludorum nadat sy verlede jaar op die dag van die jaarlikse Kleuratletiekbyeenkoms as volg prtesteer : 1ste in 80m, 1ste in hekkies, 1ste in verspring (ook rekord), Iste in hoogspring (ook rekord), 2de in 100m , 2de in 1 200m

Die Blou- en Witspan dirigente het daarin geslaag om hul spanmaats tot groot sukses en “gevleuelde note” aan te spoor en het sodoende die Sangbeker te deel tydens jaarlikse Kleurbyeenkoms.

Allesandro Dirk is aangewys as die Victor Ludorum nadat hy verlede jaar op die dag van die jaarlikse Kleuratletiekbyeenkoms as volg presteer het : 1ste in 150m, 1ste in 100m, 1ste in spiesgooi 1ste in verspring (ook rekord), 3de in gewigstoot Op 15 Januarie 2014 het die nuwe skooljaar vir mev. Hannelie Kotzé se Gr. 1-klas in volle gang begin.

Laerskool De Tyger se nuwe nasorgfasiliteite is pas in gebruik geneem. Die fasiliteite bestaan uit vier tydelike klaskamers wat toegerus is met die toepaslike meublement en toerusting. Hierdie lokale huisves alle leerders van Gr. R – Gr. 7 wat naskoolse sorg benodig. Hier ontvang mnr. Barend Ritter (Voorsitter van die Finansiële Komitee) die sleutels van mnr. J.P. van der Spuy (Opsigter) wat as bouprojekbestuurder opgetree het. Mev. Umia Knibbs (DHP) en Nasorgverteen-woordiger op die SBL asook mnr. Marius Jansen van Vuuren (Adjunkhoof ) het ook die oorhandigingseremonie bygewoon.

By Laerskool De Tyger word suksesvolle onderrig en die ontwikkeling van leerders gerugsteun deur die deurlopende kurrikulumontwikkeling van die opvoeders tydens personeelontwikkelingsessies. Die effektiewe gebruik van rekenaartegnologie in die klaskamer word ‘n al hoe groter onderrig- prioriteit en daarom word die opvoeders ook hierin ondersteun.

Dit is tradisie by Laerskool Brackenfell om alle nuwe Graad R en 1 leerders ‘n dag voor die opening van die skool, by die skool te ontvang. Die rede hiervoor is dat die skool te groot is en die terrein nog onbekend aan hulle is en ons hul graag op hul gemak en veilig wil laat voel voor al die ander kinders vir die nuwe skooljaar aanmeld. Ons behaal jaarliks groot sukses met die reëlings. Sommige van hul het ‘n traan gepik, ander was weer baie seker van hulself en menige ouers het tevrede gevoel toe hul die terein verlaat, want hul kon sien dat hul kind in veilige hande is. Ons het tan 4 Graag R klasse en 6 Graad 1 klasse. Aansoeke vir toelating vir 2015 tot Graad R en 1 open reeds vanaf 1 Februarie 2014. Laerskool Brackenfell streef na uitnemendheid!!!

Laerskool Welgemoed

Nuwe nes vir blessies! Leerders van Laerskool Welgemoed leef voluit vir die Blessie-tradisie soos gedikteer deur die skool se wapen wat ‘n Bleshoeder is. Die Blessies is nou baie aangedaan om nes te skop in ‘n pragtige nuwe multi-funksionele lokaal, Die Blessienes. Hierdie nuwe lokaal wat deel vorm van die sportfasiliteite van die skool, sluit in kleedkamer geriewe vir seuns en dogters, aantrekkamers met storte en ‘n ruim multi-funksionele lokaal waaar dansklasse aangebied word en ook sal dien as ‘n onthaallokaal. Moderne kombuisfasiliteite en ‘n paraplegiese toilet rond die gebou af. Peet van Biljon namens Van Biljon Barnardo argitekte, ingenieur Gus Venter en Anien Booyens, almal ouers van Laerskool Welgemoed, het hulle self oortref en die projek gelei om ‘n snoesige nes te bou vir die Blessies.

Blessie “mascott”

Welkom Graad 1’s!

125 Graad 1’s het op Woensdag, 15 Januarie vir ‘groot skool’ aangemeld. Ons was bevoorreg om die oggend met 125 droeë ogies te begin. (Ons kan ongelukkig nie dieselfde van al die mamma’s sê nie.) Ons vriendelike “Blessie” het vroegoggend kom kennis maak. Groot was party van ons se verbasing oor die “groot voël” wat kan praat. Net na eerste pouse het al die graad 1’s die hoof in die saal gaan ontmoet. Dit was lekker om te hoor ‘n mens gaan nie net vir die skoolhoof in sy kantoor kuier as jy verkeerd doen nie, maar ons kan gaan kuier om oor ons mooi werk te spog. Die eerste dag is vinnig verby – ‘n vol dag met baie nuwe ervarings.

Our New “BLESSIE MASCOTT” hatched out of an enormous egg, on the stage, in the presence of the whole school and much to the delight of children and adults, attends all important school functions.

Adalene Bezuidenhout

We welcome three new teachers at Welgemoed Primary School I love the kids at Welgemoed – they bring such innocence, life and hope to the world. They still have that spark - that desire to help, to contribute and to enjoy the simple things. I love the way they all jump out of their seats to help at the mere mention of a star as reward!

Dit is vir my ‘n wonderlike voorreg om my onderwysloopbaan by Laerskool Welgemoed voort te sit. I’m very excited to share what I’ve learned outside of the classroom over the last 5 years with my grade 7 classes. Ek wil my klas graag inspireer en motiveer om hulle volle potensiaal te ontwikkel. I see myself as a moulder of dreams and I want to encourage my class to dream big dreams and work hard to make it a reality. Ek dare jou...leef voluit! Dieter Voigt

I feel privileged to join the Blessie Family at as a Grade 2 teacher. I am extremely excited about my journey at Welgemoed Primary and look forward to all the new and exciting challenges this year may hold. My dreams and hopes are simple: Live for today, Dream of tomorrow, and learn from yesterday. My class motto: Play, learn and grow. . . together Janine Potgieter

I wish for my learners to grow not only intellectually, but also spiritually. I want them to leave my classroom ready to take on any challenge! I want them to remember their values and I want to impart them with a sense of respect for themselves and those around them. If they finish Grade 7 with these ideals, I will feel that my job has been done properly. I look forward to teaching at Welgemoed for many years to come! Shani Marchand

Welgemoed Primary School turns 49! We celebrated our 49th birthday at Welgemoed Primary School in a most colourful, “fantastic” manner!! Our theme was “Rainbow Rascals”, whereby every grade had to wear tops in a specific colour. Our birthday cake was comprised of 49 brightly coloured cupcakes complete with sparkling candles. There were also delicious chocolate slabs up for grabs for the three learners who correctly guessed the colours of Blessie’s(our school’s huge bird mascot) hat. Learners enjoyed a cooling orange or red ice-lolly before going home. Much fun was had by all!

Personeel afsluitingsfunksie 2013 Ons as personeel van Laerskool Welgemoed was baie bevoorreg om aan die einde van verlede jaar op die City Sightseeing bus vir ‘n toer deur Kaapstad te gaan. Ons eerste stop was by Kirstenbosch se tuine. Daar het ons heerlike middagete geniet. Daarna is ons verder met die bus. Ons het na Houtbaai toe gery en is met Chapman’s Peak terug waar ons ‘n ongelooflike uitsig oor die see kon besigtig. Op Signal Hill kon ons weer besef wat ‘n pragtige stad ons het. Ons onvergeetlike toer het weer by die Waterfront geëindig. Dit was voorwaar ‘n heerlike afsluiting wat nog lank onthou sal word.

Die Evers het ‘n Grease moeder-en-dogtertee gehou! Gedurende die vierde kwartaal van 2013 het die ouers weereens bewys dat hulle uiters kreatief kan wees en die Evermammas en - dogters het hulle tafels pragtig versier om by die tema, Grease, van die Moeder-en Dogtertee te pas. The Ever girls could escape reality and for one morning all pretended that they were Sandy!

Kaskarkenades Van ons jonger leerders tydens ons jaarlikse Kaskarkenades. Die hoof-organiseerder en voorsitter van die Ouervereniging, mnr. Arné Mulder, staan in die agtergrond.

JP Prysuitdeling Henry Longlegs het ons JP-prysuitdeling kom besoek en gesorg dat dit genotvolle aand vir almal teenwoordig was. Die tema van die aand was “Die sirkus” en die kinders het dit geniet om soos allerhande narre en ander snaakse karaktertjies aan te trek.

Voëlvertoning Die hele skool het ‘n opelug optrede geniet waartydens ons meer geleer het van allerhande soorte roof- en ander inheemse voëls van ons land. Ons kon ook baie naby aan dié geveerdes kom en van die leerders kon selfs van die voëls hanteer. Later dieselfde dag het ons ook meer geleer van allerhande reptiele.

Kamp Hier is ons graad 7’s besig met probleemoplossing tydens hul kamp op die plaas Kopbeenskloof in die berge naby Touwsrivier.

Pikkewynefees Die Landsdiensklub (gr. 4-7) en Groentjiesklub (gr. 3) het vele kampe en uitstappies meegemaak. Hier is ‘n groep by The Boulders nadat ons die vrylating van ‘n hele paar pikkewyne wat weer in die see vrygelaat is aanskou het. Die res van die dag het ons die pikkewynefees geniet.

Gholf Hier is die vierbal van Tyremart Strandweg tydens ons jaarlikse Gholfdag. Tyremart Strandweg was vanjaar weer een van ons skool se borge.

Swimming champion!

With great excitement, eager grade one learners started their school careers at Edgemead Primary School. Day one started off well with very few tears! Proud mommies and daddies spent some time in the classrooms enjoying their child’s first moments at school.

2014 Prefects Rebecca Meder (11) qualified to swim in the Western Province Championships 2013 that were held from the 6 December to the 10 December at UWC. She swam in 13 individual events and 5 relays and medalled in all 18 events. Rebecca was awarded gold for the (11 & Ur) 200m and 400m freestyle, as well as the 200m Individual Medley (in which she broke the WP record). She achieved silver medals in the (11 & U) 100m freestyle, 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke respectively, as well as the 50m, 100m, 200m backstroke events and the 200m freestyle and medley relays. Rebecca also attained bronze medals in the (11 & U) 50m butterfly, 50m freestyle and the 800m freestyle (age 11-13), as well as for 400m freestyle (11 & U), 200m medley (13 & U) and 400m freestyle (13 & U) relays respectively. Rebecca was awarded the Junior Victrix Ludorum for the Championships. What an achievement!

Grade 7 farewell

The following 12 learners have been selected as the Edgemead Primary Prefects for 2014. Back Row: (L to R) Christine Hanekom, Mila Burger, Alexis de Villiers, Shuhayma Jaber, Jessica Laubscher, Skye Wyeth, Sydney Roffe. Middle Row: (L to R) Rebecca Mortley, Sian Thompson, Nicole Smith, Reid Donson. Front Row: Matthew Nash.

Staff year-end function

In true Edgemead tradition, we bid the Grade 7’s of 2013 a fond farewell. 180 Grade 7 learners arrived to see our school hall transformed into a spectacular Chinese landscape. It was most certainly a night to remember!

We welcome Miss Candice Carlson and Mr Jared Bremner to the Edgemead Primary staff. They have both joined the Grade 5 team and we look forward to many exciting years with them.

Red was most definitely the most popular colour at the staff’s year-end function where everyone enjoyed the same delightful Chinese décor and exotic Chinese cuisine.

At the end of 2013 we bid a fond farewell to Mrs Dingle (seated) – the Head of Department for Grade 7 – who faithfully served the school for 25 years.

Farewell!

Die Leerderraad onderneem jaarliks ‘n fondsinsameling wat as ‘n blyk van welwillendheid aan ‘n hulpbehoewende organisasie geskenk word. Gedurende November 2013 het die 2013 Leerderraad die pragtige bedrag van R3 000 ingesamel wat deur Jaco Mostert (Hoofseun) en Demi Murray (Hoofdogter) aan mev. Louw van die plaaslike Meals on wheels oorhandig het.

Mev. Esmé Louw (Gr. 1-opvoeder) het gedurende die vierde kwartaal op eie inisiatief 147 geskenk-skoendose onder die ouers en leerders van Laerskool De Tyger versamel. Van die leerders wat betrokke was is (agter) v.l.n.r. Jandré Punt en Kevin Pringle asook (voor) Anouschka Strydom, Raulph Geiger en mev. Esmé Louw (Organiseerder).

Laerskool De Tyger

Natasha Martins is aangewys as die Victrix Ludorum nadat sy verlede jaar op die dag van die jaarlikse Kleuratletiekbyeenkoms as volg prtesteer : 1ste in 80m, 1ste in hekkies, 1ste in verspring (ook rekord), Iste in hoogspring (ook rekord), 2de in 100m , 2de in 1 200m

Die Blou- en Witspan dirigente het daarin geslaag om hul spanmaats tot groot sukses en “gevleuelde note” aan te spoor en het sodoende die Sangbeker te deel tydens jaarlikse Kleurbyeenkoms.

Allesandro Dirk is aangewys as die Victor Ludorum nadat hy verlede jaar op die dag van die jaarlikse Kleuratletiekbyeenkoms as volg presteer het : 1ste in 150m, 1ste in 100m, 1ste in spiesgooi 1ste in verspring (ook rekord), 3de in gewigstoot Op 15 Januarie 2014 het die nuwe skooljaar vir mev. Hannelie Kotzé se Gr. 1-klas in volle gang begin.

Laerskool De Tyger se nuwe nasorgfasiliteite is pas in gebruik geneem. Die fasiliteite bestaan uit vier tydelike klaskamers wat toegerus is met die toepaslike meublement en toerusting. Hierdie lokale huisves alle leerders van Gr. R – Gr. 7 wat naskoolse sorg benodig. Hier ontvang mnr. Barend Ritter (Voorsitter van die Finansiële Komitee) die sleutels van mnr. J.P. van der Spuy (Opsigter) wat as bouprojekbestuurder opgetree het. Mev. Umia Knibbs (DHP) en Nasorgverteen-woordiger op die SBL asook mnr. Marius Jansen van Vuuren (Adjunkhoof ) het ook die oorhandigingseremonie bygewoon.

By Laerskool De Tyger word suksesvolle onderrig en die ontwikkeling van leerders gerugsteun deur die deurlopende kurrikulumontwikkeling van die opvoeders tydens personeelontwikkelingsessies. Die effektiewe gebruik van rekenaartegnologie in die klaskamer word ‘n al hoe groter onderrig- prioriteit en daarom word die opvoeders ook hierin ondersteun.
