Only four matrics pass TARRYN-LEIGH SOLOMONS @tarryns07


eauvallon Secondary School in Valhalla Park obtained a 14.8% pass rate for the 2019 National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams. The school, which is located in the middle of gang territory, achieved the lowest pass rate among surrounding schools. According to the provincial education department of the 27 learners who wrote the exam, only four had passed. Spokesperson Bronagh Hammond says the learner population at the school is 197. “The school records high failure rates in Business Studies (11% pass rate), Geography (14.8% pass rate) and Mathematical Literacy (55.6% pass rate) which all attributed to the final result of 14.8%. They only offer seven subjects at the school,” she explains. Hammond says the school did not have any matric learners in 2017 and 2018. “The reason why there were no matriculants the past two years is because the learner numbers were so low in those grades that it would not justify the teaching posts to teach specific subjects. Learners were therefore transferred to John Ramsay High School. 26 learners were promoted to Grade 12,” she says. Going forward, Hammond says the department’s metro north district will analyse the results more

carefully. “Intervention strategies will be discussed with the school in the weeks to come.” The school’s acting principal Leonard Jansen says the result was very disappointing as the staff put in extra hours to help the learners. “It all boils down to discipline, studying and commitment from the learner. As teachers we stayed at school until 21:00 for the latest to equip learners for the final exams. We held spring and winter schools to get them ready, but there was a lack of commitment,” says Jansen. “We can’t always blame socioeconomic issues. For the new academic year we would like for parents to come on board and support their children. The learners need encouragement. In this case there are three strings to a learner’s success and these include learner, parent and teacher support.” For the current year the school has 26 matric learners. “We are working on programs to improve this year’s results.” The pass rate of neighbouring schools are as follows: . Elswood Secondary – 55.4% . Bishop Lavis High – 56.9% . Arcadia High – 61.8% . John Ramsay High – 65.6% . Modderdam High – 66.4% . Bonteheuwel High – 70.5% . St Andrews High – 71.7% . Range High School – 72.4% . Elsies River High – 73.7% . Valhalla Secondary – 75.0% . Marian RC Secondary – 83.3%

All-female crew waiting for call to fight fires AVRIL FILLIES


he all-female firefighting wildland crew, consisting of 15 women that completed the three-month nature conservation programme at Chrysalis Academy, are rearing to go. They are known as the Nature Conservation Corporation (NCC) all-female wildland crew and hail from Capricorn, Retreat, Philippi, Bonteheuwel, Khayelitsha and Mfuleni. “The crew is the result of a successful partnership between the NCC, Chrysalis Academy and the (provincial) department of public works, with support from Vergelegen Wines. The project officially kicked off on 25 November 2019, after a recruitment process was performed,” says Kylie Paul, superintendent of the crew, the first of its kind in Africa. “There were a large number of women interested in the programme and the 15 that graduated were interviewed, performed a fitness test and were then hand-selected by a large panel including myself. Every member of Team Juliet completed an elective fire fighting skill phase during their threemonth programme. All of them loved this part,” she says. Chrysalis Academy is hosting them while they search for accommodation and a base. “We are currently still searching for a home base, looking into many options, but we are lacking a degree of sponsorship on this matter. We are also trying to source a vehicle that could transport us to and from fires. Any support on this from anyone would be greatly appreciated,” Paul says. TygerBurger asked why they became firefighters and here are their responses: . Zimkhitha Nqetelo (22) from Philippi: “The reason I became a firefighter is to rescue animals and my crew when they need me, also to destroy trees that could be a danger to all of us and animals (widowmakers).” . Tarren January (27) from Bonteheuwel, one of the crew leaders): “When I applied to become a firefighter I knew I had to commit myself and that it would positively change my world and my perspective.

Anga Kom and Yandiswa Tywalana keeping fit. “I always loved being out in nature and exploring the wilderness, also because of my love for animals and new adventure, I decided that being a part of this team, I could contribute by lending a hand to this very important cause. It is an honour to be a part of this mission to save and protect wildlife, as well as human beings – instead of turning a blind eye to the beauty of nature that can be destroyed in the blink of an eye.” . Sisanda Bam (25) from Philippi: “I want to be a firefighter to save people’s lives, communities and animals. I also like to work with people.” . Sharne Maritz (19) from Retreat: “When I was young I witnessed my community burn down. It was horrible to see people’s lives burning away. Firefighters came but could only save some of the properties and a few people at a time. At that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. “Whenever I see a fire-truck drive past me I get filled with excitement, it’s a burning feeling, wishing it was me heading to the fire. Now it is. I can’t see myself doing anything else. I was told I couldn’t be a firefighter because I was a weak woman, yet that did not stop me. It’s tough, dirty, amazing and an important job.”

Team Juliet, the all-female crew of the Nature Conservation Corporation that are awaiting their first call to fight a fire.

Buite Ekspo skud vere reg Die 19de kykNET Buite Ekspo vind vanjaar op die plaas Môreson langs die N7, net 10 km buite Malmesbury, gedurende die naweek van 14 tot 16 Februarie plaas. Verlede jaar het dié gewilde geleentheid meer as 20 000 besoekers gelok, wat dit die grootste ekspo van sy soort in die WesKaap maak. Die ekspo is hoofsaaklik gemik op buitelewe- en relevante uitstallings en beloof om die nuutste in hierdie veld aan besoekers te bied. Uitstallers bly dan ook die hele naweek op hul uitstalterreine en rig hulself so in dat die publiek eerstehands kan ervaar hoe die produkte funksioneer. Alle uitstalterreine het toegang tot krag, water en badkamergeriewe. Tesame met die uitstallings word ook lekker pretaktiwiteite vir die hele gesin

aangebied. André de Villiers van Safari 4x4 Roetes bied gratis Amarok 4x4-hindernisritte aan. Dan is daar veldmotorfiets- en vierwielfietsvertonings en -ritte, asook helikopterritte. Maak ook seker om nie die kykNET Buite Ekspo se verjaarsdagjol – aangebied deur Jimmy’s Steakhouse Sauces met kykNET-sepiesterre – mis te loop nie. Daar word gedurende die naweek verskeie interessante kompetisies en aktiwiteite aangebied – onder meer ’n kunsmark en splinternuwe Swartland-Wyntuin, wat wyn en eetgoed sal verkoop. Daar is vanjaar selfs meer gekeurde kosverskaffers om aan almal se smaak te voldoen. Daar is ook ’n Castle Light-kroeg en -biertuin en ’n baie gewilde “slush”-tuin om almal se dors te les.

. Anelisa Thwasile (23) from Khayelitsha: “The reason I chose to become a firefighter is the love for the job and I am willing to take any chances that may come my way to save the world and to prove to some women and young girls that this is not only a man’s job.” . Nyameka Makeleni (25) from Khayelitsha: “A firefighter is the closest thing to a hero. My dream was always serving my community. I am serving my community… I became a firefighter because I love it!” Paul says the male colleagues have been a huge support from day one! “They are so excited to have us and constantly offer advice and assistance in getting started up or on projects. They cannot wait to see us out on the line beside them. The integration with the male contingency has been effortless and really special. “They totally support this project and understand why it is so important. Many of the male firefighters have roots in Working on Fire, where there are male and female firefighters that are integrated into the crews,” she says. . Sesethu Stuma (male crew leader and experienced firefighter): “The NCC Juliet Crew, for me, is ready to respond to any fire. From what I saw when working with them on an alien clearing job was that they have the potential and energy. I am looking forward to seeing them on the line.” The women have been undergoing all the relevant wildland and fitness training that is required to perform this highly skilled, amazing and physical job. The crew has officially been on standby and ready to respond to call-outs since Thursday 2 January 2020. “We have not received a call out yet, and we have faced some operational hiccups, but are constantly training, studying and eagerly awaiting our first call. As the ladies often say, “When the going gets tough, Juliet gets going,” says Paul.

Die kykNET Buite Ekspo is nie ’n musiekfees nie, maar daar kan uitgesien word na optredes deur ’n paar uitstekende kunstenaars – onder andere Amore, Nadia Louw, Desmond Wells, Pieter Smith, Joe F, Cheree, Wicus van der Merwe, Megan Danner, Wynand Windpomp, Sam en Calla en Melo3, Suid-Afrika se splinternuwe “girl band”.

Model embraces skin condition NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk

Chad Esau


ast year a woman walked up to Chad Esau and said she would pray for his skin to turn back to normal. Esau (22) smiled politely and then prayed for the opposite. “It was that moment that I realised I’m not that young boy who used to pray for my (skin condition) to go away. Esau, from Bellville-South, has come a long way from being bullied as a young boy. These days he’s a part-time model and is vying for the title of Mr South Africa 2020 and hopes to inspire everyone who is a little different. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes the loss of skin colour in blotches. Michael Jackson famously tried to hide any signs of the illness, while Winnie Harlow became a top model with her unique beauty. Esau’s Vitiligo started when he was between five and six years old. “I didn’t know what it was called at that time because the internet wasn’t as informative as it is right now. I always thought it’s “wit lewer” (white liver), that’s what people called it growing up.” When he became a teenager he received his first phone and discovered the condition is called Vitiligo. He always felt self-aware about the condition, but with time he started accepting it. “I can’t picture myself without my Vitiligo,” he says. “I learned that it never mattered what people say about me growing up, it’s always been what I tell myself.” Esau works as a barista at GrandWest and this is how his modelling career took off. He was working the night shift when a scout asked whether he wanted to start modelling. Esau put motivational sticky notes on his wall with things he wanted to achieve and coincidentally he was focusing on a sticky

note about becoming a model that specific morning. His decision to enter Mr South Africa is one that suddenly popped into his head. “I told myself ‘no that’s ridiculous, why would I want to do modelling as big as Mr South Africa 2020’?” But later he changed his mind. “Why can’t I do this? I’ve always been a role model for family and friends growing up.” Modelling has given him a platform to inspire more people and speak to those who are a bit different or who are bullied. “I’m with an anti-bullying campaign called Brave Heart, which focuses on stop-

Boek bring hulde aan Abe se mentors AVRIL FILLIES


erwyl hy in sy hospitaalbed gelê het nadat hy tydens ’n valskermsprong in Bloemfontein beseer is, het Abraham (Abe) Bengell, voormalige brigade-sersant-majoor (BSM) van 44 Valskerm-brigade in Bloemfontein, besluit om sy loopbaan in die SuidAfrikaanse Weermag te boek te stel. Hy was ook verbonde aan 1 SAKK-Opleidingseenheid in Faure as instrukteur van verskeie troepe. “Die titel van die boek Abe ons eerste is ontleen aan die koerantopskrif in Die Burger-Ekstra in April 1987, toe hy as die eerste bruin (regiment-sersant-majoor (RSM) in die rooi gebied aangestel is by 55 SAI Bataljon in Namibië. Die berig is deur jou, en ek het gedink dit is ’n gepaste titel, want ek was die eerste in baie opsigte. Boonop het jy my weermagloopbaan saam met my gestap en dis dan ook my manier om dankie te sê vir jou bydrae,” het Bengell Onder die genooide gaste wat die bekendstelling bygewoon het, was sy voormalige bevelvoerder, kol. Leon Martins, Leër-sersant-majoor Edward Sykes (AO1), wat sy kompanie-sersant-majoor was as die vegtende magte/infanterie in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika, en brig, genl. Graham Jacobs, bevelvoerder van SAKK Skool, en vriende. Vriende en familie het vanaf Bloemfontein na die Kaap gekom om die geleentheid by te woon. In die boek gee hy ’n breedvoerige beskrywing van al sy prestasies, persoonlike ervarings en toeken-

nings wat hy in sy loopbaan van 27 jaar en ses maande beleef het. “Benewens my oorlede ma, Poppie, my vrou, Karen, my kinders en susters en broers, was daar vyf persone wat sentraal staan in my lewe en loopbaan as ’n soldaat. Hulle is JP Taylor, my korp. en Dennis Johannes, sy instrukteur op die instrukteurskursus, Jan (Essy) Estruis, sokkerafrigter en hoof van die militêre polisie, en wyle Henry Maasdorp. “Taylor het my geleer dat jy moet luister na ander voordat jy ingeligte besluite maak en hy het my leierskapsvaardighede ontwikkel. Sykes het my ondersteun om as 55 SAI Bn se RSM in Namibië al was dit sonder betaling te werk. Jacobs was ’n voorbeeld as offisier, as heer en Maasdorp het hy altyd daaraan herinner dat in alles wat ek doen, nooit die Here te vergeet nie,” sê Bengell. As hy nou terugkyk op sy lewe en loopbaan besef hy dat die Here hom altyd gedra het, selfs toe hy as ouderling Sy werk as bedlêende in die gemeenskap van Heidedal in Bloemfontein verrig het. “Ds. Collin Goeiman, die predikant van die Verenigde Gereformeerde kerk in Heidedal, het my nie in sak en as laat sit nadat ek die besering opgedoen het nie. Hy het van sy senior ouderlinge gevra om my op ’n matras huisbesoeke in die gemeenskap te gaan doen. Dis dan ook tydens die huisbesoeke dat ek nog nader aan God beweeg het en Hom eerste in my en gesinslewe gestel het. “Tydens my stasionering in Namibië het ek goeie vriendskaps-

bande opgebou met lede van Untag, die internasionale vredesmag wat destyds daar ontplooi is, en ook goed saamgewerk met ander bevelvoerders by die verskillende eenhede in Namibië. Hieroor word breedvoerig in die boek uitgewy en ook watter invloed elkeen van hulle op my loopbaan gehad het,” sê hy. Bengell is gebore in Springfontein en hy begin die boek deur te vertel van sy rol as leier in sy ouerhuis nadat sy pa gesterf het en hy as pa ingestaan het. “Ek het my ma belowe dat ek nie

sal drink nie en dat ek alles in my vermoë sal doen om haar en my ander familielede te onderhou. Voor haar afsterwe het sy my bedank vir die rol wat ek in haar en die familie se lewe gespeel het,” vertel hy. Die boek sal wonderlike herinneringe oproep van almal wat saam of onder hom soldate was. “Die besering van lt. Sandy van der Sandt tydens ’n landmynontploffing in Namibië het my laat besef waarvoor ek my as soldaat ingelaat het. Elke ervaring, goed of sleg, tydens die Grensoorlog vanaf die sewentigerjare het my die per-

soon gemaak wat ek vandag is. Sonder die Here en die gebede van my ma, makkers, vriende en familie, sou ek nie in staat gewees het, om my lewensverhaal te boek te stel nie. Ek hoop almal wat dit lees, sal nie net genot daaruit put nie, maar ook my lewensreis tot op hede beleef,” sê hy. Sy offisiere, onder-offisiere en troepe is landwyd versprei en hy het sy dank teenoor elkeen se bydrae tydens die bekendstelling uitgespreek. Rig navrae aan Abe by 073 151 1479.

Bible for the Deaf opens new world NIELEN DE KLERK @nielendk


or many the words in the Bible are selfexplanatory. Verses like “whoever has ears, let them hear” or “if you declare with your will be saved” are so commonplace, many don’t think twice when reading it. For a deaf person this is a completely different experience, says Dr Rocco Hough, who helped put together the English Bible for the Deaf (EBD), which the Bible Society of South Africa released at the end of last year. Hough, who was a reverend at the De la Bat Dutch Reformed Church for the deaf in Bellville for over 30 years, was directly in-

The English Bible for the Deaf.

volved with both translations, along with Elmien Roux, a retired teacher who used to work at the De la Bat School for the Deaf in Worcester. Helping them were scores of academics and deaf people, making this a translation developed with the deaf, for the deaf. The EBD follows the runaway success of The Afrikaans Bible for the Deaf of 2008 (now also known as the Bible for All), the first Afrikaans Bible for the deaf. The EBD is aimed at people who were born deaf and could not learn a language in an auditory way.

Necessity Hough says he was challenged to do the English translation of the Bible for the Deaf while in Kenya about 11 years ago. A pastor there said they were struggling to understand the English Bible for the Deaf they were using at the time. When he looked at the Bible himself, he saw about 50 words in the first chapter of the Bible that the average deaf person wouldn’t understand. There was a great need for a text-based Bible for the deaf in English, Hough realised. And as he knew only too well from translating the Afrikaans Bible for the Deaf, most of the existing Bible is too difficult for a deaf person to understand. “The mother tongue of the deaf is Sign Language, a very difficult language for hearing people to learn, and likewise, difficult for deaf people to understand written language as we find it in our Bibles.” A hearing impairment normally leads to language impairment. “Deaf children cannot learn a language in a normal way, and in the past deaf children were sent to a school for the deaf at the age of 3 where they had to learn a language in a specialised way.” Even though they have normal intelligence, the average reading ability of an adult de-

Dr Rocco Hough and his wife, Jean. Hough says Jean has been a big help in the process of putting together a more readable Bible for the deaf.. af person is that of an eight-year-old-hearing child. This creates a large barrier when trying to read something like the Bible. Added to this is the fact that the Bible is filled with idioms, which is something that is acquired by speaking a language over time and not something deaf people learn automatically.

Translation The translation of EBD officially started in 2011 and the text was completed after about five years. “After (this) it was tested, the development of all the footnotes and illustrations, the page layout, and then it was printed in China, who has the largest and most modern Bible printing press.” Two source experts Prof Bart Oberholzer

and Prof Hermie van Zyl helped with this translation. After Oberholzer’s death, Dr Tiana Bosman took over. Hough says this Bible is ideal for groups of people wanting to read an easy translation, like Christians in countries like Pakistan and India. “There is such a big need for a Bible like this and I’m grateful we could finish it,” Hough says. Hannerie Swart, development manager at the National Institute for the Deaf (NID), says it’s special that the deaf can receive the word of God in an easily understandable way. “It supports deaf accessibility and inclusivity.” VThe Bible is available at Cum Books or at the Bible Society of South Africa.

‘Cigarette butts’ serve as warning SAMANTHA LEE-JACOBS @samantha_lee121 A unique and quirky art installation aimed at creating awareness around an unknown plastic pollutant and its risk has hit beaches and popular attractions around the country. The Kiickbutt initiative was initiated more than a year ago but gained momentum over the last month. The initiative is aimed at simulating the magnitude of damage created by irresponsible disposal of the cigarette butts and what animals encounter as they come across the butts in nature. The 19 life-sized butts are created from decommissioned telephone poles, spraypainted to resemble cigarette butts. Clive Amsel, WRAPP CEO, installation artist and environmentalist, says many people do not realise the cigarette butts are made of plastic and are one of National Geographic’s top listed plastic pollutants in the world. While they may look like white cotton, the basis of most cigarette filters is a plastic named cellulose acetate, which can take up to 10 years to fully decompose. The environmental risk is increased in the fact that filters are designed to absorb the contaminants in cigarettes and prevent them from going into the lungs. These contaminants include cadmium, arsenic and lead which are then released into waterways or ingested by animals. “We chose areas that are environmentally sensitive, but also areas where people tend to smoke and leave their butts,” says Amsel. “As you walk along the beach or take a hike anywhere in the country, you will find cigarette butts scattered all over the place.” Amsel recently also collected a 2L bottle full of butts while hiking up the Platteklip Gorge trail. The identified are-

as included Lion’s Head, Llandudno, Table View, Scarborough, Fish Hoek, Platteklip Gorge, Kommetjie and Umhlanga beaches, Tokai, Zeekoevlei and the Cederberg mountains. The installation is funded by WRAPP waste who were motivated to get involved through their passion for responsible waste removal. Amsel says the installation will be around until June and move to other locations, weather dependent. “It seems like a small thing but it has a butterfly effect, a lot of small things add up to a big problem,” says Amsel. Another area of focus is the CBD, as Amsel says many drivers discard of their butts on sidewalks and out car windows. “This enters the stormwater systems, goes out to sea and affects our marine life and shellfish. We end up eating that,” he says. The butts have already caused a stir and Amsel hopes it will change people’s minds about irresponsible disposal of their cigarette butts, and decrease the toxic waste caused by discarded cigarette butts. It is estimated that 18 million cigarettes are smoked around the world daily. “It is a personal choice whether or not to smoke, but at least throw the discarded cigarette butts into the nearest waste bin,” he says. “We are not educating people against smoking, but rather to discard butts in a dust bin or controlled environment.” Aside from the toxicity, the butts also pose a major fire risk. One of the biggest reported veld fires which started on Table Mountain in 2007 was caused by a tourist who discarded a smouldering cigarette butt out of his car window. Amsel says they have enough funding to run until June and hope to secure additional funding to assist them in continuing at more locations beyond this date.

Die voormalige Springbok Hilton Lobberts, wat deesdae vir Hamiltons uitdraf, trek ’n speler van die WP-vyftiental plat tydens ’n Stormers Varsityrugbydag op Saterdag 11 Januarie in Ravensmead. Die Stormers het sy mini-kragmetings met KSUT (15-10), Ikeys (15-5) en Maties (10-5) gewen, maar kon nie die WP-vyftiental, wat uit plaaslike klubspelers bestaan het, tot oorgawe dwing nie (10-15). Die Stormers se teenstanders het ook onderlinge mini-wedstryde gespeel. FOTO:

Durbies gee Langa pak slae SAREL BURGER


urbanville se weghol-sege met 10 paaltjies oor Langa op Saterdag 11 Januarie het tot gevolg dat die Durbies steeds die bopunt van die punteleer in die WP se Premierliga beman. In antwoord op Langa se 146/9 het Durbanville se aanvangskolwers Hayes van den Berg (74) en Jean Marais (73) met ’n onoorwonne vennootskap 152 lopies bymekaar geskraap. Maar met Bellville (186) het sake minder voorspoedig verloop teen Kaapstad (236/6), ondanks ’n knap derdepaaltjie-vennootskap van 98 lopies tussen Schaughn van Greunen (58) en Uwe Birkenstock (45). Brackenfell en die Universiteit van WesKaapland het loslootjies gehad. In die eerste liga is Kraaifontein deesdae weer goed op dreef. Die Kraaie se telling van 228/6 was bo die vuurmaakplek van Edgemead (203) ná goeie bydraes deur Craig Ephraim (52* en 3/27) en Garth Madden (50). Vir Edgemead het Justin Higgs (47) die beste vertoon. Milnerton (233/7) was gans te sterk vir Noordelikes-Goodwood (114). Die sege was grootliks te danke aan die bydraes van Damian Crowley (66), Maximillan Walter (46), Matthew Snyman (45) en Sean Roach (3/26). Tygerberg-klub (86) het le-

lik gefaal teen United (188) terwyl Kuilsrivier (142/9) met 3 paaltjies deur Primrose (143/7) getroef is. Die Kuile is ook Sondag in ’n tweede wedstryd met 88 lopies deur United (230) geklop. . In die laaste reeks Premierliga-wedstryde in Desember het Brackenfell – die voorloper op die punteleer in daardie stadium – skande gemaak toe hy ’n pak slae van 172 lopies teen Rondebosch op die lyf geloop het. In Durbanville (218/8) se kragmeting teen Strandfontein (143) het ’n vyfdepaaltjie-vennootskap van 150 lopies tussen Dale Campbell (83) en Byron Boshoff (73) tot die Durbies se redding gekom nadat hulle op 18/4 gesteier het. Bellville (76/2) het danksy ’n goeie spanpoging maklik met Langa (75) afgereken. In die eerste liga het Ryan Milne (6/36) en Justin du Toit (52) gehelp dat Milnerton met 97 lopies teen Tygerberg-klub seëvier, terwyl Danie Bothma (5/20) en Craig Thyssen (44*) aan die voorpunt was van Kraaifontein (133/5) se vyfpaaltjie-oorwinning oor Rylands. Edgemead (238) het Gugulethu met 114 lopies verslaan ná knap bydraes deur Duane Abel (6/25), Aaron Wilke (53) en Bradley Johnson (53). Noordelikes-Goodwood (159) is naelskraap met twee lopies deur Ottomans geklop.
