College celebrates students’ graduation Info you need to know
MIDDELBURG — On Friday, December 1, 61 (of the 63) third year students received their Agriculture Diplomas at Grootfontein College of Agriculture on the final Academic Prestige Day.
ASATI President, Sandile Nzuza, addressed the ceremony with his last speech in front of his fellow-students, DAFF and GADI Directors, Staff and Lecturers, parents & families. With these words he concluded the 1 043 days since this group of students entered Grooftontein for the first time:
“I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities and to the most special places your heart has ever known. Forget all the differences there may be in life, and just love, just like Jesus said in John 15:17. This is my command: Love each other”, and once you do that you will understand that you are just as special as John 15:16 says you are.” MIDDELBURG — SANRAL will erect a speedbump at the hotel in Meintjies Street in due course.
It will be the same size as the speed bumps on the national road between Kwanozame and Lusaka.
Also in due course, a 4-way stop will be erected at the corner of Meintjies and Van der Walt Street - SANRAL is also in discussion with the Inxuba Yethemba Municipality (IYM) regarding the red lines in Meintjies Street. The tar-team of IYM is currently working in Midros until the end of the week. They will proceed to Church Street thereafter. Vandals
Frequent complaints from the public about the vandalising of house refuse on pavements, can be reduced by following these easy steps:
- If you can afford it, order or build a wooden/ steel rubbish collection holder of a minimum height of 1.5 meters. Put the holder with the rubbish out on the pavement on collection days. This will deter vandalism. The majority of people who go through rubbish are waste collectors who can make a few bucks by selling it at the waste recycling plant outside town.
- In your household/business it is a good idea to separate all GLASS, TIN, PLASTIC AND PAPER/CARTON in separate CLEAR bags. Put these bags out, together with the rest of your refuse.
This way you can help the environment while assisting the needy. Die Van der Merwe Gedenk Primêre Skool in Middelburg het op 25 November ‘n baie suksesvolle debutantebal aangebied. ‘n Rekordbedrag van R160 835 is deur die debutante ingesamel terwyl die dans R16 300 opgelewer het.
