Is it a cold or flu?The flu virus can be transmitted from person to person by droplets or by contaminated surfaces such as banknotes, doorknobs, light switches and other household items. Do you know the difference between a cold or a flu?

Winter is just around the corner making us all more vulnerable for the flu virus which is very contagious.

As ouers word ons gebombardeer met boeke en die media oor hoe die “perfekte” ouer lyk. Ons het die vermoë om onsself op verskeie maniere te kritiseer. Ons voel skuldig as werk of sosialisering ons weerhou om genoeg tyd saam met ons kinders te spandeer. Verdere druk word op ons geplaas deur skole, familie en vriende oor wat die “regte” goed is om te doen, te wees en te sê.

Om onsself as ouers met hierdie ideale sosiale prentjie te vergelyk is fataal en dit lei tot die wanpersepsie dat ek in my rol as ouer misluk het. Wanneer jy as ouers ‘n oomblik neem om te kyk na daardie spesifieke aksie wat maak dat jy jouself as ‘n “slegte” ouer beskou, sal jy sien dat selfs daardie aksie ook jou kind gehelp het.

Elke persoon het ‘n balans van ondersteuning en uitdagings nodig om tot hulle volle potensiaal te groei. As

Die “Perfekte” Ouers

‘n kind net ondersteuning kry, heeldag hoor hoe oulik hulle is en met alles gehelp word, gaan hulle nooit leer om iets op hulle eie te doen nie. Maar as ‘n kind nou weer net een na die ander uitdaging kry, sal die kind deur die uitdagings oorrompel word en nooit selfvertroue bou nie. ‘n Kombinasie van gelyke ondersteuning én uitdagings bevorder ideale omstandigehde vir groei.

So in plaas daarvan om te dink dat jou kinders verwaarloos word terwyl jy werk, sien eerder hoe jy hulle deur jou afwesigheid help om onafhanklik te word, en om in volwassenheid en selfwaarde te groei.

Stop en vra vir jouself hoe jou elke optrede en aksies jou kinders help? Jy sal vining ontdek: maak nie saak wat jy doen of nie gedoen het nie – jy speel ‘n kritiese rol in jou kinders se groei en ontwikkeling.

optrede ons kinders gedien het.

DINNER is served…

Come and visit us to feel all the colours, taste all the flavours and get swept off of your feet in a world filled with gorgeous meats.

Skaapland More than just your local butcherLife without delicious, gorgeous foods would be completely dull without any flavours to look forward to for dinner.

One of the main questions asked within the industry is: What foods make you fat?There are many myths that people are made to believe with regards to eating and living healthy.

Our answer to this question is: Natural fats that come from animals, vegetables and even fruits are exactly what the human body requires to function fantastically without fail. The intake of these fat groups provides the body with the correct nutrients, vitamins, proteins and minerals to prevent flu for example.

The main key is to consume everything in moderation.

Here follows a high protein and LOW natural fat recipe:


Parsley is slightly peppery and bright herb. There are two main varieties of parsley - curly leaf and flat leaf. Curly leaf is probably the most recognizable, as restaurants often use it as a garnish on their plating, but both varieties are widely used in cooking.

Health benefits of Parsley:Parsley is a great source of vitamin C, calcium, iron and fiber. Raw parsley also acts as a breath freshener and has anti-inflammatory properties.

How to Use Parsley in Your Cooking:Because of its light scent and fresh taste, parsley can be used in anything from soups to sauces to vegetables.

Tips with Parsley:

1. To store parsley, rinse with cool water and then wrap in a slightly damp paper towel in a resealable plastic bag and keep in the fridge.

2. Infuse your homemade dressing with chopped parsley for maximum flavor while you’re putting together a salad.

3. You can dry your fresh parsley by tying a bunch together and hanging it upside down in a cool, dry place. When the parsley is completely dry, remove the stems and store the dried leaves in an airtight container. You can also dry out your parsley in a slightly warm oven or in a dehydrator.

Outdoor ClubThe learners in this photo are congratulated on their wonderful achievements during the first part of the 2014 athletics season. These nine athletes from Metro North competed against three other districts at the Western Province Championships at Blue Downs on 1 March 2014 and obtained their Western Province colours. The Western Province team took part in the Western Cape Championships at the Doljosaphat Stadium in Paarl on 8 March 2014. Emma Ellis and Nicola Middleton did exceptionally well and represented the Western Cape Team at the South African Schools Athletics National Competition on 21 March 2014. Nicola (U/11) came second in the 1200 m. The staff and learners at Kenridge Primary are very proud of their athletes!

A very successful chess tournament for parents and children of Kenridge Primary, was held at the school on Saturday 15 March. Fifty one children and eleven parents participated. Grade 1 & 2 learners bravely battled against one another across the chess boards, with Reinhard Viljoen, Luke Abrahamse, Hannah Loebenberg and Kyle Maclean taking the top positions. Grade 3 & 4 learners confidently challenged one another, with Francé Esterhuyse, Minkyum Kim and Emihl Rossouw taking the top three positions. Karen Vergeest, Julian Milner en Keenan Loesch het die eerste drie posisies behaal. Elf ouers het alles in die stryd gewerp sodat hul kinders trots kon wees op hulle. Frans Vergeest, Gary Kalt en Werner Barnard het die goue medaljes gewen. Baie geluk aan al die deelnemers. Dit was ‘n dag vol pret en die terugvoering van ouers en kinders was baie positief. Thank you to EvaluNet for donating GetAHead software for the top player of each grade.

Op 13 Maart 2014 was Laerskool Kenridge die gasheer van Tygerberg en WP-Noordliga se Rooiballe Tennistoernooi. Ses skole, met 144 spelers, het aan die toernooi deelgeneem. Spanne het ingeskryf in ‘n Graad Twee en Graad Drie afdeling. Elke span het bestaan uit 12 spelers – 6 seuns en 6 meisies. Behalwe Laerskool Kenridge het Laerskool Welgemoed, Curro, Eversdal, Brackenfell en Welgemoed ook aan die toernooi deelgeneem. Die bane, nette, balle en tellings is aangepas sodat die spelers die wedstryde makliker kon baasraak. Watching these youngsters play was like touching the future of tennis. Good sportsmanship was shown and there were smiles all around.

Gr 6 & 7 Boekklub

Gr 2 Uitstappie - Volstruisplaas

Landsdiens – Bergie-aand

Laerskool De Tyger se 1ste krieketspan het nuwe kleredrag ontvang wat geborg is deur, CCHN Marketing cc en KC Flooring Concepts. Die spelers lyk sommer spoggerig en gereed om krieket te speel in hul nuwe kleredrag. Baie dankie aan CCHN Marketing cc en KC Flooring & Carpets.

Tydens die 1ste skoolkwartaal het die 0/9 mini-krieketspan al hul wedstryde gewen. Dankie aan mnr. Grant Welsch vir sy afrigting en aan elke speler, welgedaan. Ons hou julle dop om te sien wat jul in die toekoms gaan oplewer.

Tydens kuns-periodes werk die kinders, van elke klas, baie hard. Aan die einde van die kwartaal word van hul kunsskeppings uitgestal in die gange vir almal om te sien.Hier is ‘n paar van die klasse se kunswerke.

Elke jaar is ons bevoorreg om gasheer te speel vir die Sanlam Atletiekbyeenkoms, geborg deur Sanlam. Vier laerskole het deelgeneem aan die byeenkoms. Elke atleet het ‘n sertifikaat ontvang vir hul deelname en die wenners het medaljes gekry. Dit was weereens ‘n baie suksesvolle byeenkoms wat elke atleet geniet het. Baie dankie aan Sanlam.

Ons Gr. 6 en Gr. 7 Boekklublede is besig om ons Roald Dahl boeke se karakters uit speelklei te bou! Hier wys van die lede vir ons hoe hul karakters uitgekom het. Dit was vet pret!

Op Donderdag, 20 Maart, was die opwinding voelbaar onder die graad 2’s. Dis uitstappie tyd en hul is oppad Volstruisplaas toe. Groot was hul verbasing toe hul hoor dat, elkeen wat wil, ‘n geleentheid het om op ‘n volstruis te kan sit. Selfs die juffrouens het ‘n beurt gekry. Die kinders het die volstruise gevoer, geleer van die verskil tussen mannetjies en wyfies, verskillende tipe volstruise en hul het sowaar op volstruis-eiers gestaan. Na die toer was dit pure kinderpret op die klimrame, swaaie en in die sandpit. Hier het hul verbeelding vrye teuels gekry. Wat ‘n lekker ontspanne, opvoedkundige dag was dit nie!

Vrydagaand, 7 Maart, het ongeveer 40 lede van die Landsdiens ‘n bergie-aand gehad. Elkeen moes sy eie beskutting, van karton boks tot tent, bring en dan uitkamp op die rugbyveld. Die klomp is in 2 groepe verdeel en het lekker aktiwiteite gedoen gedurende die aand. Daar is teen die skynste afgegly, ‘n “katwalk” mode-parade is gehou en toe dit begin reen het, word speletjies in die skool se gang gespeel.Die kinders het om middernag lekker partytjie gehou om juf. Esme Louw en een van die kinders se verjaardag te vier. Met al die pret en plesier was daar beslis nie tyd vir slaap nie, al het party weggeglip na hul “huisies” om bietjie te slaap. Ons wag om te sien wat hulle volgende kwartaal gaan doen.

GelukwensingBaie geluk aan Juf. Hannelie Kotze en haar

man Rayno, met die geboorte van hul seun op Maandag, 24 Maart 2014.

Eversdal se atlete presteer puik!

Model Dinosaur The u/14 girls hockey tour to Knysna

Every bread tag helps!

Twee van Eversdal se leerders by die SA Nasionale vlak 3 swemkampioenskappe!Sewe atlete van die Laerskool Eversdal is in die WP Laerskole Atletiekspan

opgeneem. Hulle het Saterdag, 8 Maart 2014, in die Paarl aan die Wes-Kaap Laerskole Atletiekkampioenskappe deelgeneem waar twee van die atlete Wes-Kaapkleure verower het. Jaco Wolstenholme het ‘n goue medalje vir 800m Seuns o/13 ingepalm, terwyl Niel Nelson ‘n derde plek in die gewigstoot vir Seuns o/12 behaal het. Beide hierdie twee seuns gaan nou aan die SA Laerskole Atletiekkampioenskappe later vanjaar deelneem.

Albert Kotze, a Grade 5 learner built this model of a dinosaur using pipe-cleaners and egg containers.

The U/14 girls’ hockey team toured Knysna, the past long-weekend, where they played in a tournament against schools like Herschelle, St. Cyprians and Springfield.

Hana Garthwaite, a Grade 4 learner, collected over 12 000 bread tags which was given to the Jan Kriel School, in Kuilsriver, to help them reach a target of 200kg or 600 000 bread tags. On reaching this target the school will be able to donate a wheelchair to a worthy person. The learners of Eversdal Primary School have been collecting bread tags over the last few years and have so far given over 183 000 bread tags to Jan Kriel School.

Twee leerders van die Laerskool Eversdal, Van Reenen de Waal (links) en Henju Duvenhage (regs) het van 13 tot 17 Maart 2014 aan die SA Nasionale Vlak 3 Swemkampioenskappe by UWC deelgeneem. Die Nasionale Swemkampioenskappe word jaarliks landswyd gehou vir gekwalifiseerde swemmers van die ouderdom van 12-18 jaar. Slegs die top junior swemmers in die land (ongeveer 30 swemmers per item) kwalifiseer jaarliks vir die Vlak 3 Swemkampioenskappe. In die finale rondtes het Henju

Op 6 Maart 2014 het die Laerskool Eversdal ‘n baie suksesvolle swemmarathon aangebied. Daar het altesaam 36 swemmers deelgeneem wat ‘n totale afstand van 62 km geswem het. Die beste swemmers was Ilanka Combrink (links op die foto) en Walter de Jongh (regs), beide in Graad 5. Hulle het onderskeidelik 105 en 106 lengtes geswem. Fotograaf: Louise Rheeder.

Wendy moedig leerders aan om hulle drome na te jaag. Boeke is belangrik vir alle Blessies en daarom het LAPA Uitgewers weer kom boeke uitstal en verkoop. Op die vooraand van Biblioteekweek het Wendy Maartens, bekende skrywer, die leerders en personeel van Laerskool Welgemoed toegespreek oor die wonderwêreld van lees, boeke en stories en dit met voorbeelde uit haar boeke toegelig. Verder het sy ook leerders aangemoedig om te droom en daarna te streef om drome waar te maak. Sy het verduidelik dat ouer mense soos dik boeke met baie stories is en hulle aangesê om hulle oumas en oupas te vra om vir hulle meer te vertel oor hulle ondervindings en vroeëre ervarings. Daarna was almal baie lus vir lees en het flink boeke gekoop.

Caring Attitude at Blessie Land

Wynand Oberholzer skryf oor sy ervaring:

Die Leerderraad van Laerskool Welgemoed het hulle deel gedoen om Menseregtedag te bevorder! Hulle het sewe regte gekies en vrolike plakkate gemaak om die ouers en leerders te laat “smile” en aan te moedig om dankbaar te wees vir hierdie regte. Die reg vir onderrig, ‘n huis, ‘n familie, vriende, voedsel, gesondheid en veiligheid is beklemtoon.

During Care Week this term, Welgemoed Primary once again supported Môresterretjies, the farm school situated on the farm, Morgenster. The children on Welgemoed Primary donated clothes, toys, art supplies and books for the children at Môresterretjies. Many little eyes twinkled with joy at the sight of their new toys, whilts the burden of purchasing essential items was lessened for the parents of these little children.

Ons Graad 5’s het van die 19de tot die 21ste Februarie by Jonkershoek gaan kamp. Ons was so opgewonde toe ons daar aankom, want dit was ‘n wonderlike plek! Die swembad het heerlik gelyk om inte swem, maar ons moes eers ‘n aktiwiteit doen voor ons kon swem. Die volgende dag het ons in die berge gaan stap en baie nuwe dinge geleer. Die hindernisbaan was vir my die heel lekkerste, want dit was so lekker om in die modder te kruip. In die aand het ons gebraai en toe ek weer kyk is ons kamp verby!

During the week of 10 – 14 March the Grade 7 learners of Gene Louw Primary School, once again, had the opportunity to experience Oudtshoorn for a week: accumulating memories! The excitement was tangible when the Grade 7’s, each class dressed in their uniquely designed camp T-shirts, left on the Monday morning. The 223 learners

Op Donderdag 7 Maart 2014 het ons ons 19de Marathon fondsinsameling gehou. Hierdie fondsinsameling is elke jaar groot pret met o.a. draf, fietsry en kiskar ry. Daar word ook heerlik gesmul aan verskillende kossoorte en lekkernye.

resided at the beautiful De Hoek Mountain Resort, 25km outside Oudtshoorn. For many of the learners it was their first visit to places such as the Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife Ranch and the Sahara Ostrich Show Farm. This, along with fun activities such as canoeing, archery, camel riding and swimming, all formed part of their busy programme. The learners described the camp as “the highlight of their primary school careers”.

Fun day at Melkbos Beach Mathleague

Tennis Team

Bible Breakfast


Junior Gala

Senior Primary Gala

The Grade Two classes visited Melkbos Beach on 18 March and took part in a beach clean-up. After that, they did some fun beach activities, including building sandcastles. A great day was had by all.

Congratulations to the thirty-two learners from grades 4 to 7 who were selected to compete in the Mathleague Cape Town contest held at Constantia on February 22. We are especially proud of those learners who made the Top 10 in their grade divisions ensuring that we were the best performing school at the contest.

Edgemead Primary is very proud of their successful tennis team: Robbie Arends, Christopher Breetzke, Samantha Miller and Kelly Arends. Robbie competed in the WP Mini 2 Tournament over the long weekend and won the under 14 Doubles Championship. Kelly represented Western Province at the WP Interpro against Boland held in Worcester. She won all of her singles matches, and WP won overall.

The Grade One classes had a Bible Breakfast this term. Each learner dressed in simple clothing and experienced a morning depicting the typical life of the Biblical times. Fried fish, pita bread, grapes and dried fruit were served. The highlight was drinking fruit juice out of a goblet which they had made themselves. Entertainment was provided by a group of ‘Israeli dancers’.

As part of the Creative Arts subject in Grade 7, learners need to have seen at least one live production during the year. Twenty-six of our learners went to see the Sound of Music at the Artscape. For some, this was the first time they had been to the theatre. It was a magical experience.

The Junior Gala was held on Friday 14 March. The results are as follows:

This one is for ALL the ladies!!On the 26th of March our Franchisee, Erika van Wyk, made us come to work for the day without make-up. We had a good chuckle at each other and had great fun posing for our selfies! We also nominated the Rawson Head Office ladies to do the same!

But just taking your selfie is not enough, the Pink Drive association don’t just only need awareness, they also need the funds. We encourage each of you to join in the fun and post a “selfie” of yourself, with no make-up, on Facebook and sms “PINKDRIVE” to 40158 like we’ve done to donate your R20! LADIES this is a nomination from the Girls at Rawson Durbanville Elite to get your photo and donation out there and nominate more ladies to get involved in the fun as well. The Guys are also MORE than welcome to contribute a donation to the Pinkdrive, as they need all the help they can get to reach their target of Two Million Rand.
