Lekker om te leer by dié skool
2nd shot at maths, science Students who have passed matric but did not obtain a high score in mathematics and physical sciences, have a chance to improve their marks with the help of the successful SciMathUS programme at Stellenbosch University (SU). They will hopefully follow in the footsteps of the 2012 group, where all 104 students who wrote the final examination passed, also continuing the 100 % pass rate over the previous four years. The programme offers talented and motivated students, who are educationally disadvantaged and did not qualify to be admitted to university programmes, a second chance.
Students may apply for SciMathUS if they have passed Grade 12 with a minimum of 50 % in Afrikaans or English, a minimum of 30 % in mathematics and physical sciences, or 80 % in mathematical literacy and also 50 % in any four of the subjects designated for university admission. The students will rewrite the Grade 12 exam. Prospective students may apply for the programme until 31 January and application forms can be downloaded from the website at www.imstus.sun.ac.za/scimathus.html or alternatively phone 021 808 2301 or 021 808 3032.

Turning up heat on crime Since the inception of Operation Rubicon, much successes have been attained in the Parow area. Operation Rubicon is the brainchild of the cluster commander, Brig Darius van der Ross, W/O Jacques Mostert of the Parow police said. “A plan was devised where members from Parow such as shift, crime prevention and sector managers work during the hours in which these types of crimes are the most prevalent. “Members from Parow have also pledged to do extra duties during their time off and are also supported by detectives and members,” Mostert said. They have also been joined by members of Bellville, Bothasig and Goodwood who are also performing duties when they are on rest days. According to Brig Van der Ross, the fact that everyone is working together
shows the degree of support the cluster stations have for each other and is also a force multiplier. A large number of police members are deployed on a daily basis, some in uniform and marked vehicles, while others are in civilian clothes and unmarked vehicles. Since the inception of the operation on 11 January, good successes have been achieved as numerous arrests were made for the following crimes: possession of drugs and dangerous weapons, as well as for murder and robbery. According to Mostert besides the drugs, various other dangerous items which could have been used to commit crimes have been taken off the street. The main goal of Operation Rubicon is to turn up the heat even more on criminals in Bellville cluster, Mostert concluded.
Police nab 41 ‘drunk drivers’ Metro police officers arrested 41 suspects for driving under the influence of alcohol and drug-related offences during patrols and operations across the city this weekend. Officers also issued 441 traffic fines and recorded 30 bylaw offences. On Saturday 19 January officers arrested 10 motorists for driving under the influence of alcohol at a roadblock in Voortrekker Road, Parow. Another four motorists were arrested for the same offence in Atlantis. A joint operation with the SAPS resulted
in the arrest of three motorists for driving under the influence of alcohol, while another three motorists were arrested for the same offence in Parow, Bellville and the Cape Town CBD respectively. During routine patrols in the Maitland area, officers arrested one suspect for possession of illegal narcotics after he was found with dagga.
