    History of Earth HourEarth Hour first started in Sydney, Australia, in 2007 when 2.2-million households turned off their lights for one hour to make a stand against climate change. Today Earth Hour is much more than just switching off lights for an hour once a year. Its a growing international campaign to encourage people to make sustainable choices in every aspect of their lives and the act of switching off the lights for the hour has taken on symbolic significance. This year South Africans are being challenged to go one step further by publically responding to the question, How do you honour the Earth? with the intention of changing the way we behave towards the environment.

    If we all add our voice by sharing our promise, we not only uphold our own best intentions but we can motivate those around us, says Pedzi Gozo, Executive Manager of Communications, WWF South Africa. The growing collection of promises forms an inspiring overview of the varied actions that everyday citizens are taking to make a difference.

    Answers to this How do you honour the Earth? question can be found at www.earthhour.org.za where people and organisations have been making their commitments to protect our planet. Make your promise to the Earth by thinking about the choices you make around food, energy and water use and what our wider impact is on the environment. Together we are stronger. Promises already posted on the site range from the simple, like unplugging the cellphone charger or eating

    Switch your lights off on SaturdayJoin the symbolic switch for Earth Hour on 29 March 2014, in the hour of darkness from 8.30pm.

    only SASSI green-listed fish, to the philosophical, such as taking time out to enjoy and appreciate nature, as well as huge environmental commitments made by large corporates like SAA, Nedbank, Pick n Pay and Woolworths.

    Die Isa Carstens Akademie (ICA) bied n drie-jaar voltydse Diploma in Somatologie, n NQF vlak 6 kwalifikasie. Hierdie is n belowende loopbaankeuse vir jong dames aangesien dermatolo, plastiese chirurge en dokters in estetiese medisyne toenemend van somatolo in hul praktyke gebruik maak om behandelingsprosedures aan te vul.

    Voornemende studente wat as n somatoloog in die estetiese mediese rigting wil werk kan Somatologie studies kies as n alternatief vir daardie kandidate wat byvoorbeeld akademies presteer maar nie vir medies gekeur word nie.

    Die Isa Carstens Akademie (ICA) is reeds vir 36 jaar een van die mees vooraanstaande opleidingsinstansies op die gebied van gesondheid en velsorg in Suid-Afrika en is ook die eerste CIDESCO (Comit International DEsthtique et de Cosmtologie) erkende skool.

    Volgens Isabel Roos, besturende direkteur van ICA, is n belangrike faktor wanneer n opleidingsinstansie gekies word, dat dit by die Departement van Hor Onderwys en Opleiding geregistreer is, asook geakkrediteer deur die raad van hor onderwys dus voldoen die kwalifikasies aan die Nasionale Kwalifikasieraamwerk se standaarde.Die ICA het kampusse in Stellenbosch en Pretoria en bied uitstaande koshuis verblyf.

They learnt to serve their school, to lead effectively and to work as a team so that they could meet the challenges ahead. Earlier this term, the student council attended a special leadership-training camp and, besides the staffs input, the current prefects were also involved in the head prefect selection process.

    Die ouers het die onderwysers die stryd aanges tydens die Rooftek T20 krieketwedstryd. Ongelukkig moes De Hoop se onderwysers die knie buig as gevolg van die ouers se uitstekende kolfwerk. De Hoop s baie dankie aan mnr. K. Bruwer vir sy borgskap.

    Hierdie pappas stap n lang pad met Laerskool De Hoop! Na die somtotaal van 67 jaar, groet Die Legendes De Hoop aan die einde van die jaar. Tydens die Rooftek T20-krieketwedstryd het hulle gewys waar Dawid die wortels begrawe het Pappas wen onderwysers!

    Water week

    Grade 1 outing

    Super SWPS atlete

    During water week (17 21 March) the learners discussed where water comes from, uses and how we should conserve it. Our grade 3 learners made raindrops with ideas on how they can save water.

    The grade 1 class read In the pond. After reading the book they decided to go and have a look at the school pond. Many of the learners did not know that there was a beautiful pond at the school! They saw water lilies and water pads, tadpoles, dragonflies and gold fish who nibbled their fingers.

    Hierdie vier leerders het hul WP-atletiekklere verwerf. Caitlin en Jesse gaan die Wes-Kaap atletiekspan verteenwoordig.

    App of the monthPushBullet

    By no means is PushBullet new, but thanks to an update this month, the app is now one of the most powerful and useful apps you will ever install on both your phone and computer. For those new, PushBullet began as an incredibly useful app that would allow you to push links, files, or other goodies from your com-puter to phone and then back again. We have watched as the functionality for it has grown immensely over the last six or so months, but this month its creators added notification mirroring.

    With notification mirroring, PushBullet will show a pop-up in your Chrome PC browser every time you get a notification from any app on your phone (assuming you enabled it). You can choose to dismiss it on phone, turn off mirroring from that app, or go on about your business. I dont know about you, but the fact that I dont have to pick-up my phone each time it buzzes, and can keep my eyes glued to my computer, plus wipe the notification from my phone, is freaking ground-breaking. Go install this.
