Cradock se watertariewe

CRADOCK:

Cradock se Sakeforum het sy kommer uitgespreek oor verskeie inwoners van die dorp se wanopvatting oor verlede week se voorbladberig in Cradock Courant aangaande Chris Hani Distriksmunisipaliteit wat geswig het onder druk van AfriForum oor die geweldige styging in watertariewe.

Volgens Charles Featherstonehaugh, voorsitter van die Sakeforum, spreek hierdie berig slegs die tariewe vir dorpe soos Tarkastad, Elliott, Indwe, Dordrecht en ander aan en het dit nie betrekking op voorgestelde tariewe wat op Queenstown, Middelburg en Cradock betrekking gaan hê nie.

Ter insae het Featherstonehaugh verduidelik dat die geweldige styging in water en sanitasieheffing soos voorgestel deur Chris Hani Distriksmunisipaliteit, die gemiddelde huishouding se maandeikse rekening bykans onbekostigbaar duur gaan maak. Hy het verduidelik dat waar huisbewoners tans R91-50 vir sanitasie betaal (teenoor die R87-00 per toilet wat sake-ondernemings betaal) gaan die distriksmunisipaliteit vanaf 1 Julie 70% van elke huishouding se totale waterrekening vir sanitasie hef.

Waar ‘n gemiddelde huishouding tot dusver ongeveer R115-63 vir dertig kiloliter water en R91-50 vir sanitasie betaal het, gaan dieselfde huishouding volgens die nuwe tariewe R372-03 vir 30 KL water betaal waarby R593-89 (70% vir sanitasie) gevoeg word wat die totaal van die rekening op soveel as R965-92 te staan kan bring. Die nuwe sanitasieheffing wat Chris Hani vir besigheidspersele wil hef is 95% van hul totale watergebruik.

Die prys van water waarvoor inwoners van die Inxuba Yethemba munisipaliteit tans R4-26 per liter vir ‘n verbruik van 30 KL betaal, gaan steeds opgestoot word na R15-29 per KL.

Hierdie verhoogde heffings val saam met die styging in munisipale belasting en elektrisiteit wat vanaf 1 Julie gehef gaan word.

Cradock Sakeforum is besig om hierdie totaal onaanvaarbare verhoging met hand en tand te beveg en het die ondersteuning van al die inwoners van Cradock en omgewing nodig om hul hande te sterk.

· Die bogemelde tariewe word op ‘n glyskaal bereken.


Desktop Project Launch May 2014

Maths and Science Desktop PC support

project implementation in schools in the

Somerset East and Cookhouse region
SOMERSET EAST

The Govan Mbeki Mathematics Development Unit (GMMDU) of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University recently launched a Maths and Science Desktop PC scaffolding support project in schools in Somerset East, Bedford and Cookhouse. The project is an extension of recent GMMDU maths and science initiatives in the region, including learner incubation programmes as well as skills upgrade programmes for educators. According to Prof Werner Olivier, who heads the GMMDU, a number of telling successes emerged from the learner incubation programme recently where similar resource materials were used as a basis. “We are very excited about the potential benefits that flexible after-hours learner access to quality syllabus aligned Maths and Science material could bring” he said.

The desktops are pre-installed with the TouchTutorTM maths and science resource package to provide independent virtual tutoring and support via video content lessons, calculator support, exam revision and learner workbooks. The model is independent of the internet and will provide support for Grades 10 – 12 learners after school hours.

Six schools in the region will benefit from the project, namely, Aeroville High School, Johnson Nqonqoza High School, Gill College, Cookhouse Senior Secondary, Lonwabo High School and Templeton High School. Teachers at these schools will facilitate and monitor access to the support platform which will be placed in secured venues at the schools. The project enjoys the support of the local Department of Basic Education, school principals and teachers.

The initial phase of the project is sponsored by Cennergi and is in partnership with the Dr Ngcipe Foundation and the Blue Crane Development Agency.

Further similar Maths and Science development initiatives in schools in the region are planned for the near-future.
