Christmas gifts appeal for local people in care

School’s out for many matriculants Mfundo Mkhize ALVIN Reynders (18) of Howick wrote his final English exam yesterday. He formed part of 150,061 full time candidates who wrote the National Senior Certificates exams. Reynders plans to study for a degree in Medicine next year. He has received a number of plaudits at the school, having scooped the Dux prize at the annual prize giving. “I will miss the structure and the pressure of the school environment. I would also miss my friends,” he said. Monday signalled the end of the schooling career for most pupils, while others would still be writing other subject with most sitting for consumer studies exams on Friday. Meanwhile, Zamo Buthelezi from Howick said 2013 could best be described as a rollercoaster ride for her. “I cemented friendships and also assumed a role

C Father Christmas paid a fleeting visit to Howick to check on the gifts being prepared for needy children in the Midlands. With him are (left) Jeanette James of Sew What and Sally Evertse of Sally’s Sewing Workshop who are supervising the collection and distribution of the Christmas stockings.

I

T is hoped that the 400 child and adult patients in the Umngeni Hospital, as well as those residing at the Khazimula Children’s Home at Lidgetton and all needy young people supported by local Rotary charities, will receive a Christmas stocking filled with gift surprises this year. Despite generous support received so far there remain many unfilled Christmas stockings, so Sally Evertse of Sally’s Sewing Workshop and Jeanette James of “Sew What” are appealing to the public of the Midlands to provide further support so they can complete their task. Among the “goodies” sought for many yet-to-be-filled Christmas stockings are crayons, colouring-in books, Dinky cars, card games, balls, soaps, perfumes, make-up, blankets as wells as clothing, bed-socks and shoes for adults and children. Young learners at

Howick Preparatory School illustrated 235 Christmas stockings under the guidance of their Art teacher. These stockings were cut from a roll of fabric donated by a Howick resident, Phyllis King. Karen Davel, at the Celtiskloof’s “Art & Soul Centre”, is providing further stockings, paints and paint brushes so that more children or adults can come and paint imaginative designs on them. Many more stockings are still required. Sally Evertse and Jeanette James are loud in their praise of the Amber Valley Knitting Group, the Sew What Knitting Ladies and the many residents and businesses of the Midlands who have already donated a wide variety of gifts that will bring joy to those in greatest need. Further gifts can be dropped off at 88 Main Street in Howick. Any enquiries to 033-330 6564.

Zamo Buthelezi (18) from Howick and Jessica Hoffman (18) from Hilton, one of many friendships formed during the past 12 years of schooling.

of being a leader. This made me come out of my shell,” she said. Also from Howick High was Thembi Mswane of Escourt, who described the exams as being very trickly. Mswane said she was looking forward to a family vacation at the beach. She, like Reynders said she would miss her

friends dearly. KZN department spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi said this year’s exams went smoothly as there were no challenges reported. “We thank the support of teachers, parents and the pupils which ensured that the exams ran smooth. So far there has been no irregularities reported throughout the province. The marking of the matric scripts would begin on the 4th of December. The department has appointed 8426, 1610 of which are senior markers, 209 deputy chief markers, and 79 markers. It also added marking assistants. According to Mahlambi the markers were appointed to ensure that the marking process is transparent. “They are appointed to ensure that quality is maintained,” said Mahlambi. The matric results are expected to be released on the 7th of January 2014.

Howick Library hosts art exhibition

T

HE exhibition of the Howick Art Society (HARTS), will move from Fairways on Main to the Doris Robins Room, Howick Library, on 2nd December and will run until 12th December. Most of the artists are non professionals and feedback is very important to them. So pop in, have a look, and give your comments – both positive and negative. It may help the

artists expand their visions. Art as communication began long before the written word, and still expresses the emotions and sentiments of the society we live in. With the Christmas season at hand, what could be a more personal gift than an original painting by a local artist? There are also cards available at very reasonable prices. HARTS would like to

thank everyone for their support at Fairways and the management of Fairways on Main for providing a venue for the club to display their work.

Hilton boy donates generously Festive cheer at Mount Carmel

Father Christmas visited Mount Carmel Pre-School on Friday 22nd November to hand out gifts and good cheer to all the children, seen here with their teachers.

(Left to right) Guy Waterhouse and Lloyd Smuts (Director of Vula at Hilton College).

H

ilton boys through the years have been very conscious about giving to those in need and noteworthy causes. Guy Waterhouse (Grade 9) recently won a competition and he generously gave his winnings of R2 500 worth of stationery to two Vula Projects, namely Gateway School and PROTEC. The competition was run by

the Rhinose Foundation, which was founded by Andrew Paterson who was so incensed by the horrific rhino slaughtering and pain of numerous calves left motherless, that he hit on the idea of Rhinoses, a bright red, recyclable plastic rhino ‘horn’ seen displayed on the front of many motor cars. Guy entered the competition in which he had to write a chil-

dren’s book on a young rhino affected by poaching and his progression through the years. “I was lucky enough to win the 14+ category with my book “The Long Flight to Freedom,” he said, winning an I-Pad and a CNA gift card worth R2 500 for stationery to donate to a school/s of his choice.

Gardener’s Corner I

DO hope you are all enjoying the lovely rains - but not the hail! If you were hit by the hail your garden will take about a week to recover so don’t despair, the nitrogen will do your garden good. After the rain the weeds will take off so pull them out while they are young and the ground is soft, remember one year’s seeding seven years weeding! Your annuals and perennials should all be looking good especially if you keep dead heading them. Irises are over now, if you have too many dig them up cut off the leaves to about 3 inches, remove shrivelled rhizome and replant in manure or compost. Do not bury rhizome, cover with a little compost and water. They

look lovely grouped together. Hydrangea roots should be kept cool and moist at all times, feed and mulch with pine needles. To keep them blue add 90g aluminium sulphate to 5 litres water. To keep them pink add a little lime to the soil. Don’t forget to tend your roses. Don’t cut your lawn too short, the sun will scorch the roots. Veggies: beans (bush and climbing) beetroot, brinjals, broccoli, cabbages, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, gem squash and tomatoes. Pick your lemons when they are half ripe and you will get the maximum amount of juice. Happy Gardening - Judy Duggan.

Letters to the Editor

A great company to deal with

H

AV Auto - a great Company to deal with! I cannot imagine how I would have managed to make up my mind when it came to selecting and purchasing the right vehicle at the right price for the right reasons without the guidance and help of Charmaine, who presented the vehicle to me absolutely meticulously when the deal

was finalised. She also went over the finer details that I needed to be fully informed about. This whole scenario was one of helpfulness and a pleasure to have dealings with, not only Charmaine, but the entire staff. Top marks to HAV! A very satisfied customer

Well deserved gratitude and recognition

I

feel that not enough gratitude and recognition is given to our rescue workers and emergency services. It is amazing how everyone will constantly harp on how long it takes our police force to respond to a call but when they are rescuing people from crashed cars and climbing down dangerous cliffs to

save a life then we speak about it for a day and it is then forgotten. We need to learn to cherish the good moments and commend our rescue workers and emergency workers on a job well done. We are proud of you guys! Keep up the good work! Al-Yasa Jorry

Hayden Neave in action. Congratulations on an excellent performance.

VER the weekend of 16th November 2013, Hayden Neave, currently in Grade 10 at Howick High School, competed in the Silver Class of the Roof of Africa, known as the most challenging and dangerous off-road motorcycle race in the world. He

performed excellently to achieve third place in his class. Having not only faced the most appalling weather, he ran out of fuel just 50 meters from the finish but managed to complete the race with the kind assistance of a fellow competitor who siphoned off

enough fuel for him to make it to the end. To illustrate the difficulty of the race, 182 competitors entered the silver class with only 23 riders completing the course.
