Fun ideas for the last week of holidays:

Tour our beautiful city

Last fun before school starts

Take a deep breath before the cold reality of a new school ye­ ar hits home! Relax by burying yourself in the sand like Lohan Botha (8) and Marvin April (12) before you bury yourself in homework. Enjoy the mo­ ments when someone deci­ des to throw water in your face, because soon it might be a teacher who throws you with a piece of chalk. 2013 is here and there’s no better pla­ ce to stock up on happy me­ mories than on the beach!

Hoërskool Durbanville Hierdie skool se skoolgeld beloop R16 600, wat oor ’n tydperk van 10 maande betaal kan word. Dié bedrag bly dieselfde ongeag die hoeveelheid kinders van een gesin wat in die skool is.

VERVOLG VAN BLADSY 1 Ander skole Ander skole in die omgewing se skoolfooie verhoog as volg: Hoërskool Bosmansdam van R9 240 tot R10 450 vanjaar; Edgemead High School van R12 150 tot R13 050 vanjaar. Hoërskool President verhoog van R7 300 tot R8 300. Indien die skoolgeld voor Februarie vereffen word, ontvang ouers ’n vyf persent-afslag. Hoërskool Brackenfell ’n Tien persent-verhoging geld vir vanjaar by die Hoërskool Brackenfell. Ouers wat in 2012 R9 830 per jaar betaal het, sal vanjaar R10 860 opdok.

Skoolhoof Herman Mellet sê leerlinge ontvang alle skryfboeke, handboeke en vervoer van en na buitemuurse bedrywighede. “Baie skole verhuur of verkoop handboeke en voorgeskrewe boeke aan leerlinge, maar nie by ons skool nie,” sê hy. Mellet sê 60% van die begroting word aangewend vir beheerliggaampersoneel. Hy sê die onderhoud, herstelwerk en kapitaalprojekte by die skool vorm 25% van die skoolfondsbegroting. ’n Korting op die skoolgeld word gegee indien die volle jaar se skoolfonds eenmalig betaal word. Mellet sê voorsiening word gemaak vir leerlinge wat wettiglik in pleegsorg geplaas is en ouers kan aansoek doen vir skoolfondsvermindering volgens die Wes-Kaapse onderwysdepartement en die Suid-Afrikaanse skolewet-riglyne.

Hoërskool Monumentpark By dié Kraaifontein-skool word ’n 12%-verhoging gehef, ’n besluit wat deur die skool se beheerliggaam geneem word. Ouers sal in 2013 R8 550 betaal vir die skoolfonds in vergelyking met R7 500 wat in 2012 gehef is.

Hoërskool Table View By Hoërskool Table View word ’n 10%-verhoging vergeleke met verlede jaar gehef, van R10 400 na R11 440.

Hoërskool De Kuilen Skoolgeld by die skool is R9 770 per leerling per jaar vir 2013, wat ’n 12%-verhoging is vergeleke met 2012.

Sekondêre Skool Bloubergrant ’n Verhoging van 10% geld ook by dié skool. Die fooie verhoog van R8 500 na vanjaar se R9 350.

Hoërskool Melkbosstrand Vanjaar sal ouers R11 450 opdok vir skoolgeld by Hoërskool Melkbosstrand, waar dié bedrag verlede jaar R10 700 was. Hoërskool Parow Die voorgestelde bedrag vir die skoolfonds by Hoërskool Parow vir 2013 is R7 000 per jaar, ’n verhoging van R700 vergeleke met verlede jaar. Dié bedrag geld vir gesinne wat tot drie kinders in die hoërskool het. ’n Vierde kind word kwytgeskeld van skoolfonds. Ouers wat die totale bedrag teen April (voor die einde van die eerste kwartaal) betaal, ontvang R700-afslag. Hoërskool D.F. Malan In Bellville sal ouers by Hoërskool D.F. Malan vanjaar R16 250 per jaar betaal, ’n 10,2%-verhoging vergeleke met verlede jaar se skoolfonds. Joh Dorfling, skoolhoof, sê wanneer drie kinders in die skool is en die volle skoolgeld vooruit betaal word, kry die derde kind 15%-afslag, bo en behalwe die normale korting. Sy sê die grootste faktore wat ’n invloed het op die persentasie-verhoging is die aantal akademiese en administratiewe personeel wat deur die beheerliggaam betaal moet

Ouerwenke om kinders te motiveer Dit is belangrik vir ouers om ’n bydrae te lewer in hul kinders se opvoeding. Tamsyn Coerecius het ouers gevra hoe hulle hul kinders gemotiveerd hou om te studeer. Die ouers het ook hul eie ervaringe gedeel en vir ander ouers ’n paar wenke gegee wat hulle glo werk.

Ayanda Msutwana: My seun is maar nog net in graad 2, maar dis belangrik dat ouers op ’n jong ouderdom betrokke is by hul kinders se skoolloopbaan. Ek probeer om te kyk of my seun daagliks sy huiswerk doen. :

Marius Prins: Ek het vir my 13­jarige dogter ’n rekenaar gekoop. Die program­ me help haar en oefen haar brein om te onthou.

Xolisa Domo: My tweeling is 11 jaar oud. Elke dag vra ek of hulle huiswerk het en ek laat hulle toe om dit self te doen voordat ek hulle help. Ek herinner hulle daagliks dat daar niks is wat mens kan doen sonder akademie­ se opleiding nie.

Norwood Kotze: Ek het drie kinders van 16, 8 en 4. As hulle by die huis kom, doen hulle hul huiswerk. Ek kyk ook na hul dagboeke en help waar ek kan. Hulle doen ook ander aktiwiteite wat die brein stimuleer. Ek wil hê my kinders moet die beste opvoeding moontlik kry.

Filicia Willemse: Dit is belangrik om met jou kind te kommunikeer sodat pro­ bleemareas geïdentifiseer kan word. As die probleemareas groot is, moet jy ’n verhouding met die onderwysers bou. Dit is ook belangrik om te bid vir jou kind.

Dale Donsett: My dogter is 7 jaar oud en ek probeer om haar huiswerk “pret” te maak. As sy die ABC leer dan verander ek dit in ’n speletjie en beloon haar as sy goed doen. Ek wil dit aanhou doen as sy ouer is. Kinders voel altyd gemotiveerd as hulle weet hul ouers staan agter hulle.

Christa Bredenhann: My kinders is 18 en 21. Toe hulle klein was, het ek hulle gewys hoe om te studeer. Gewoonlik gee ek vir hulle ’n uur na skool om te rus en daarna begin hulle met huiswerk. Ek maak hulle ook 5 uur die oggend wakker om te studeer. Hulle weet dat hul punte belangrik is as hulle verder wil gaan studeer.

Janine Saul: My seun is ses jaar oud en gaan nou skool toe, so dis ’n groot aanpassing vir hom en vir my. Hy hou van lees op so ’n jong ouderdom. Ek hoop hy sal aanhou om daagliks te lees. Dis belangrik om verhoudings met onderwysers en jou kind te bou op ’n akademie­ se vlak.

word, water en elektrisiteit en die voorsiening vir vrystelling van skoolgelde vir ouers wat nie die skoolgeld kan bekostig nie.

Hoërskool Bellville By die Hoërskool Bellville is die 2013skoolfonds R11 853, ’n verhoging van 15,9% teenoor verlede se R9 990. Deon du Plessis, skoolhoof, sê die verhoging is om verskeie redes. “Twee bykomende personeellede word aangestel om voorsiening te maak vir een leerkrag vir elke 30 skoliere-verhouding,” sê hy. Du Plessis sê die styging maak ook voorsiening vir ’n nuwe pensioenfonds-voordeel vir beheerliggaampersoneel, terwyl ekonomie, siviele tegnologie en Frans as nuwe vakke vanjaar by die skool aangebied word. Hoërskool Tygerberg Dié skool se skoolfonds beloop R12 800 vir vanjaar, ’n verhoging van 10,3%, oftewel R1 200. Wikus Herselman, skoolhoof, sê die beheerliggaam stel die begroting vir die jaar in samewerking met die skool saam. “Die skoolfondsbedrag word aan die hand daarvan bepaal en by ’n ouervergadering voorgelê, waar dit deur die meerderheid van ouers goedgekeur word.

Big planning for Back­to­school Research conducted around back-to-school (BTS), has yielded hundreds of thousands of responses, indicating that parents have strong opinions about back-toschool issues and are prepared to go on record with them. PEP, which ran the research using its free messaging service, says 66 % of parents would like their schools to help them pay less for uniforms by standardising the uniform – i.e. a white shirt, grey trousers/skirt instead of clothing in special colours – and 56 % of parents said it would be easier to manage if everyone had the same uniform style. As the country’s largest schoolwear retailer, PEP was pleased to see that parents are generally well-informed about their rights: the majority (70 %) of respondents know it is against the law for any school to turn away a child for not wearing the school uniform, but an astonishing 59 % of people said they know of an incident where a child’s been turned away from school for not wearing the correct uniform - this would be against the law). Sixty-two percent of the sample is aware that the government has

produced guidelines for a standard school uniform (and perhaps this is also why they would like schools to opt for a less expensive uniform). While 63 % said their school already helps them by selling second-hand uniforms, over half the sample (of more than 100 000 people) said they would like their school to help them more with selling secondhand uniforms. The findings also reveal key behavioural buying patterns by cash-strapped parents: nearly three-quarters of parents give BTS items to their kids for Christmas (72 %); they also start planning and saving for BTS long before Christmas (63 %) and research prices and promotions ahead of time (54 %). Quality is very important to parents when selecting uniforms (69 %) – one reason for this could be that they pass down uniforms within their family (66 %) and even more so to their friends’ children (70 %). Half of all respondents buy schoolwear and shoes a size bigger to allow their kids to grow into them and 70 % say they spend more than R500 a year on school uniforms.

The salty sweetness of these little Oriental meatballs is balanced by the freshness of the ginger. A squeeze of lemon juice accentuates all the flavours. Perfect party or picnic food!

. lemon wedges to serve To make: Break bread (do not remove the crusts) into very small pieces. (Fresh bread is too difficult to crumble – it is easier to break it.) Mix beef mince, bread, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and brown sugar thoroughly together. Leave to stand for 30 minutes. Form 35 small meatballs. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry meatballs over medium heat, turning often. Drain on paper towels. Taste, and sprinkle with salt if necessary. Serve hot or a room temperature. Arrange the meatballs on a platter. Scatter strips of pepper and spring onions over the meatballs. Add lemon wedges. If you want to, you can add diced fresh pineapple to the platter.

Red Bull contest all about ‘big airs’ Kiteboarding will be pushed to its limits in the Red Bull King of the Air contest, taking place in Cape Town next month. The event promises to be a “mega airtime” contest with radically high jumps, various tricks and kite-loops combined with style, height and speed. “It’s going make a big impact on kiteboarding once again. This contest is all about big airs. I am just as stoked as I was back in 2005 when I won the last event in Hawaii. With the Red Bull King of the Air we’ll have the world’s best riders come out to battle it out in Cape Town’s extreme winds,” says Ruben Lenten, a formidable Dutch competitor. Sixteen of the world’s best, plus eight wildcards, selected from video entries at www.redbullkingoftheair.co.za will descend onto Cape Town. The window period for the event starts on Friday 1 February and will extend to Friday 15 February.

Vars groentestokkies en vrugte met ’n toebroodjie is ’n gesonde opsie vir ’n skoolkosblik.

Kies gesond vir kind se kosblik

’n Gesonde middagete en happies tussenin is baie belangrik vir skoolgaande kinders en help met konsentrasie en leerwerk. Om gesonde veranderinge te maak is nie altyd maklik nie, maar dit help wanneer ouers die voorbeeld stel. Dit is ’n goeie idee om kinders aan te moedig om deel te wees van die voorbereidingsproses en hulle keuse van gesonde kos te maak. Ses items wat in ’n kosblik gepak kan word vir ’n gebalanseerde maal is: groente, vars vrugte, suiwel (kaas of jogurt), proteïen (’n skyf maer vleis, hardgekookte eier of boontjies), stysel soos brood, ’n rolletjie, pita of platbrood of vrugtebrood en water. Om die kos interessant te hou kan jy groentestokkies met doopsouse inpak, ’n klein bakkie gemengde groente soos kersietamaties, wortelstokkies, spruite of komkommer. Ouers word gemaan om nie vir hul kinders aartappelskyfies in te pak nie. Vars of geblikte vrugte in natuurlike sap is daaglikse kos. Droë vrugte is taai en het ’n hoë suikerinhoud en moet liefs

net af en toe, of as deel van ’n maaltyd, geëet word. Die beste keuses vir suiwel is laevet-kaasskyfies of blokkies en ’n natuurlike of vrugtejoghurt. Dit is ’n goeie idee om die joghurt te vries wanneer jy dit in die kosblik pak. Teen middagete sal dit gereed wees om te eet. Melknageregte en gegeurde melk het ’n hoë suikerinhoud. Wanneer jy toebroodjies inpak, gebruik ’n verskeidenheid brode en vulsels, veral wanneer jou kind belangstelling daarin begin verloor. ’n Paar idees is salm of tuna in fonteinwater, laevet-kaas of -smeer, eier, skyfies koue vleis soos ham, kalkoen of hoender, ’n boneslaai of gerasperde wortel, blaarslaai of tamatie. As alternatief kan jy pastaslaai met baie rou groente probeer, of rys met gestoomde groente. Moet liefs nie sjokoladesmeer, konfyt of heuning op brood smeer nie en vermy ook vetterige vleis soos salami. As jy beskuitjies of koekies wil inpak, probeer droë volgraanbeskuitjies of ryskoekies met joghurt, hummus of groente-doopsouse.

Sights from a different viewpoint City Sightseeing (known for its red open-top buses) recently launched a new addition to its “red” family offering both tourists and locals a new, more personalised tour around the peninsula. Jana Bekker and Cecilia Hume joined tourguide Eugene Galley for a shortened version of the City Sightseeing Sidecar tour. I close my eyes and fill my lungs with a breath of fresh sea air, but only for a few seconds, too afraid to miss even one of the amazing views en route to Chapman’s Peak and Signal Hill in Cape Town. For the umpteenth time this afternoon, I am not disappointed.

I am surrounded by beauty in one of the most popular cities in the world. Our ride is uber cool too - a Changjiang CJ750 motorcycle with a sidecar. Cecilia and I met with Eugene in front of the City Sightseeing kiosk at the V&A Waterfront and after discussing a few details about the route and strapping on our helmets, the tour starts – one of us in the sidecar and the other on the back of the motorcycle with Eugene. The trip takes us along Beach Road through Mouille Point, Three Anchor Bay, Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton. At Maiden’s Cove we pull over to admire Lion’s Head and after borrowing a box of Lion matches from some workers in the area, Eugene shows us how this part of the mountain deserves its name. The tour then continues through Camps Bay, past the luxury Twelve Apostles Hotel and famous surfing spot Llundadno en route to Chapman’s Peak. The road takes us over the famous Suikerbossie pass, which is known as the toughest part of the Cape Argus Cycle race, and I feel a renewed bout of respect for the each cyclist who has ever conquered this steep part of the route. We ride through Hout Bay and up to the Chapman’s Peak View Point, where we pull over for a while to admire the view and then swop seats. On our way back, the comforting sea breeze suddenly becomes a bit chillier as we meander along the Twelve Apostels mountain range. Not to worry though, all the sidecars are equipped with leather jackets, ready to muzzle the windswept bite that might rob your ride of further enjoyment. We then head up Signal Hill where Eugene shares some long forgotten history and some interesting facts about Cape Town and Robben Island, like the latter being used as a de-

fence and training facility during World War II. Way back, not long after the first settlers had landed in the Cape, Robben Island was used to graze live stock to prevent the indigenous people, the “Strandlopers”, from stealing the farmers cattle, Eugene elaborates. This is just another advantage of The Chapmans Peak this tour - your viewpoints is one of own personal guithe stops enroute. de ensuring both PHOTO: CECILIA HUME an interesting and intimate exchange while getting to know the Cape Peninsula. And Eugene, who claims to read up on as much information and history of the Cape as he can find, is full of some very interesting facts. “You never know what type of tourist you’re going to get,” he explains. “The one might want to know about the Cape’s history, the other might be interested in property or even flowers.” Often during the ride he will slow down for a few seconds to quickly share some information or point out a piece of history. This is Cape Town sightseeing at its best and the sidecar tour as choice of transport ensures that extra exhilaration one requires every now and then. The full tour takes you on a journey to Cape Point via the original route taken by the settlers and then back via the Atlantic coast

line, including stops at Boulders, Cape Point, the Chapman’s Peak viewpoint and, if you feel like a coffee or drink, in Camp’s Bay. The tour takes about five hours and covers a distance of 150km. There is also a ninety minute Blouberg Sidecar Tour. Since the Sidecar tour is a private tour it is essential that you pre-book your adventure. Bookings can be done at City Sightseeing Tour Office outside the Two Oceans Aquarium, by phone or on-line.

The thrill of shark cage diving

Despite much controversy, Shark cage diving is often a tourist’s first port of call when they arrive in South Africa, and with fully booked tours on a daily basis, very popular among tourists and locals alike. Cecilia Hume joined White Shark Projects on one of their trips to find out what the hype is all about. “Go down!” echoes the voice of one of the crew on White Shark Projects’ orange catamaran, Shark Team, as he pulls a rope tied to a few fish heads towards the cage. The five divers inside the cage grab onto a red bar, take a deep breath and then pull themselves under the water, pressing their faces as close to the front of the cage as they are comfortable with, to see one of the ocean’s most amazing creatures nearing the cage in stalk of the bait. On the boat 15 other divers who all paid for a chance to see a Great White up close, leans over portside to watch the 4m long shark surface as it tries to grab onto the bait. Shrieks of excitement echoes from the cage as the divers surface again. “Wow, did you see how big it was!” The crew member standing at the top of the cage throws the bait out again to lure the shark back to the cage, while another is chumming the water with the hopes of keeping this Great White (and hopefully a few others) in the area long enough for all 20 divers to see from the cage. “We don’t feed the sharks,” explained the skipper during his briefing over breakfast earlier in the day. “We are not allowed to, we simply use bait to lure them to the side of the boat that we are working on.” The day starts out with breakfast at White Shark Lodge, the group’s home base in Kleinbaai (two minutes from Gansbaai). For

See a Great White up close. those who don’t feel like driving all the way, a shuttle service is available from Cape Town and Hermanus. Those who want to make an adventure of the trip can organise for helicopter transport from Cape Town. Divers are fully briefed on the day’s proceedings and safety regulations (and of course there is the indemnity form everybody makes you sign these days) before taking the 100m walk to the small harbour to board Shark Team. You are once again reminded that the crew have no control over the sharks. “We might see five, we might see nothing, we also can’t say how long the shark will stay, so when you get your chance to get into the cage, take it.” If you’re lucky you might get to see more than just a shark. As Shark Team heads out to sea, two Southern Right Whales make their presence known by slamming their tail fins down on the water in the distance. The sound of the catamaran’s engines co-

mes to a halt for a few seconds as the skipper answers his cell phone. A quick conversation follows with the skipper on another shark boat about to make it back to shore. There are sharks, and we can take over their spot. Another five boats, all from the various other shark cage diving operators in Kleinbaai, wait in the vicinity of where Shark Team finally throws down its anchor. While the crew lowers the cage into the water and ties it to the boat the first five divers start wrestling with their very thick wetsuits, as the skipper points out a shark next to the boat. On its fin is a tag that looks like the ones used by the Ocearch team (Shark Men), who were documenting sharks in the Cape earlier this year. As the first group of divers take their turn, the excitement starts to build and we’re overcome with adrenaline by the time we enter the cage. With two sharks circling the boat at that stage the wait isn’t long. “Go down,” the crew member’s voice echoes abo-

ve us. And you need to be quick, because within a split second this great white beauty swims past - a few centimetres from the cage. For those few seconds time seems to slow as you stare in awe. Then it’s back to the surface for some air, a short wait, and then you take the plunge again... After coming face to face with about five or six different sharks (apparently luck was on our side that day) and everyone who wanted to have a second turn in the cage, Shark Team starts heading back to shore. The cage is left behind for the next group of adventure seekers who want to get up close and personal with a shark. Back at the White Shark Lodge a hot bowl of soup (and other snacks) awaits and the video that was shot on board Shark Team, is shown. This video can of course be bought. The screening is followed by a brief overview of the conservation of the Great White Shark and how one can get involved. Shark cage diving is a must. If you consider yourself a lover of the ocean or care about sharks, then this should be one of the top ten items on your bucket list.

Uitstalling wys wonders van die lewe Die wêreldberoemde uitstalling van menslike lyke, Bodyworlds & The Cycle of Life, is tans in die Kaap te sien. Desiree Rorke het gaan inloer. Leonardo da Vinci sou in sy graf omgedraai het om die wêreldbekende uitstalling, Bodyworlds & The Cycle of Life, te sien, en met goeie rede. Net soos duisende Kapenaars oor die laaste maand gedoen het, dink ek die Renaissance-meester bekend vir sy eie anatomiese avonture, sou sy wenkbroue lig vir die uitstalling van menslike monsters of

eerder lyke, as jy nou eerlik oor die saak wil wees. Helaas, een van sy eie beroemde anatomiese sketse vorm deel van die uitstalling, in die afdeling wat spesifiek oor geslagsomgang gaan. Die uitstalling van sowat 200 monsters is beslis iets wat jy nog nooit gesien het nie en nie sommer gou weer sal sien nie. Dit verander ook die manier hoe jy oor jou eie liggaam dink. Wonderbaarlik, ingewikkeld, maar ook broos in sy verganklikheid. Die lyke, of liggaamsmonsters, op die uit-

Die Bodyworld­uitstalling tans in Kaapstad is uitsonderlik en opvoedkundig.

stalling word deur ’n spesiale proses, genaamd plastinasie, gepreserveer nadat die vel verwyder is en dan in interessante lewensgetroue posisies, amper soos marionette, uitgestal word. Jy kan alles sien. Elke spier, been, ligament en aar. Ek het geensins in enige stadium van die uitstalling gewalg gevoel nie, en skaars besef dat dit regte lyke is wat hier voor my hang. Dit was geensins bisar nie, eerder ’n deur wat oopgemaak word na die wonders van die lewe. Dit was vir my asemrowend om te sien hoe ragfyn die bloedvatstelsel in ons ligga-

me is. Het jy geweet dat die volledie bloedvatstelsel van die menslike liggaam 96 000 km lank is? Dit was ook fassinerend om te sien hoe die verskillende spiere oor mekaar vou. Ek het veral getalm om te kyk na die spiere in die menslike nek en rug, en gewonder hoe dit lyk wanneer dit in spasmas vertrek in stresvolle tye. Die swart long van ’n ongelukkige roker het onseremonieel in ‘n glaskas gelê, en so ook die vergrote lewer van ’n selfvernietigde drinker…durf ek enigsins meer sê? Die brein, breinstam, hart, en ander organe word ten toon gestel binne en buite die liggaam, en daar is selfs ’n menslike fetus (3 tot 29 weke). Wonderbaarlik, ongelooflik. Amper teen die heel einde van die uitstalling was die foto-uitstalling vir my die heel beste. In ’n stil hoekie, met ’n fontein waarom voetstoeljies gepak is, hang groot portrette van ’n unieke groepie aardlinge. Almal ver oor ’n honderd jaar oud, verrimpeld, laggend en besig met die een of ander aktiwiteit. Ek is oortuig daarvan dat die skeppers van die uitstalling die voetstoeltjies juis daar geplaas het vir besoekers om te sit en oor hul lewens te peins. Wat is dit omtrent die oues van dae wat so fenomenaal is? Wat is dit wat hulle van binne af laat skyn en so onverowerbaar laat voorkom teen die aanslag van die lewe - die wreedheid van siekte, en smart van die dood? Elk van die foto’s spreek egter ’n duisend boekdele. Die hele skepping wat al 15 jaar lank wêreldwyd uitgestal word deur die Europese wetenskaplike pionier, dr. Gunter von Hagens, is stof tot nadenke. Nie net oor ons aardse “doppies” nie, maar ook oor die nietigheid van die tyd wat ons daarin vertoef. Beslis nie iets om mis te loop nie. Die uitstalling duur nog tot 31 Januarie by die Breakwater Boulevard by die V&A Waterfront. Bespreek by www.webtickets.co.za. Besoek ook die Bodyworlds-webblad vir meer inligting.

Learning the joys of surfing So the holiday is nearing an end, you have perfected your tan and lying on the beach is just no fun any more. Or maybe you are just looking for some last fun holiday activity... Why not take a few surfing lessons? Cecilia Hume and Ria Smith took a lesson from Mikhail Thompson at Son Surf School in Strand to find out if it really is as “easy” as it looks.

the board, then drawing surfboard shapes on the sand and explaining how to balance your board while lying down since lying too far forward will push down the nose and lying too far back will have the opposite effect. Then it was off to the water to catch a few waves lying down. Back on the beach, on our imaginary surfboards on the sand, came the standing up lessons, but after jumping up from lying down and also from our knees and also perfecting the stance, it was back to the water to catch a wave. It’s a lot more difficult than it looks, but easier than expected. The trick behind it is speed and understanding that the water actually helps you balance. If you’re going too slow, you are going to fall. Taking too long

to stand up will have the same effect. After quite a few tries and plenty of falls, the few seconds standing were pure bliss, and then the board slipped out from under my feet and my body hit the water. So, from thinking a few weeks at the beach a year is not enough time to bother, to learning how to stand up on a board in little less than an hour... Maybe after a few more lessons, investing in a surfboard and wetsuit might after all be a good idea. Son Surf School can be found both in Strand and Melkbosstrand. They have three lessons a day every day until the end of the holiday at R150 a lesson (including surfboards and wetsuits). Lessons start at 09:00, 11:00 and 14:00. For more information visit www.surfschools.co.za.

Learning to surf has always been a dream, but with growing up in the Platteland it was out of the question since a few weeks at the beach a year just didn’t seem like enough time. So of course when a recent opportunity arose for a lesson it was grabbed hands on.

It was a sunny, yet windy day in Strand as we pulled on the wetsuits provided by the surf school. Then with two really big surfboards (“it’s easier to learn on a bigger board”, Mikhail ensured us) under our arms we strolled down to the beach. The lesson was not at all what we had expected... Picture something out of a movie scene, a whole lot of surfboards lined up on the beach, surfing students on top jumping up learning how to stand and balance on the board. Well, this is not at all what we got. It never even crossed my mind that by the end of the first lesson we’d be standing up on our boards in the water, even if it was just for a few seconds. The lesson started with Mikhail explaining safety in the water and the dynamics of

Surf instructor Mikhail Thompson cheers as Ria Smith stands up on her board for the first time.

Between 5pm and 9pm, Geyser and Pool pump are not welcome Please switch them off

Between 5pm and 9pm electricity usage peaks when people return home after work. They start cooking, watching TV and bathing. All of this leads to a large demand on our limited power supply. A geyser can consume up to 39% of household power, whereas a pool pump can use up to 11%. Please help us reduce the pressure on the national grid by switching off your geyser and pool pump during peak periods. For more information please visit www.eskom.co.za/idm
