A really awesome benefit of being a CapaCiTi student is having access to our network and the events that are hosted by the Cape Innovation & Technology Initiative - CiTi.
Some of our students were invited to attend this Talk by DJ Sbu which was hosted by Heavy Chef at our The Khayelitsha Bandwidth Barn venue.
Networking events like these are important as we invite many delegates from the companies we work with as well, many of the start-ups and entrepreneurs where students get the opportunity to interact and to begin to build a professional network for themselves as well.
How can South Africa address the urgent reading crisis it faces? There are no quick fixes, but there certainly are slow and sure ones. Developing a culture of reading is one such solution. Creating a school with a strong reading culture means making learners aware of the joy of reading and encouraging them to read for pleasure to develop their literacy skills and improve academic achievement. One way this can be done is through the inclusion of ‘instapoetry’ in the classroom.
Try Victorious Driving School and partners with their fantastic, fresh and fabulous driving instructors. Learners classes every Tuesday at Strandfontein Primary School by appointment only. Driving lessons from beginner to pro driver we get you driving and licensed asap. Book today 078 224 6432
Congratulations to Brandon Burke on being selected for the SA schools water polo team and being named under 19 player of the tournament in WP's IPT at nationals. Congratulations also to James Morritt-Smith who was also a member of the winning team.
Today we had so much fun at our class parties. We had a visit from Leslie the magician, who entertained us with many magic tricks, leaving us amazed and our jaws dropped.
We danced all day and exchanged gifts with friends. Some even said their final good-bye's for the year. We will surely miss all those embarking on their new journey and we wish them well.
We look forward to 2018. New challenges and exciting times ahead.
We would like to wish all our families and staff members a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Good day friends. See our own Chadley Jacobs sharing some inspirational words of what sport meant for him. The clip is being spread amongst the International member nations. We are super proud of you young man.

This #ThrowbackThursday features historical photograph #2656 of, ‘E. [eastern] Buttress. Mt Aux Sources’ in the Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal (QDS 2828DD) taken by Ulrich Nanni in 1961, and its awesome repeat taken by citizen scientist, Joshua Weiss in 2015 (http://rephotosa.adu.org.za/Search_photos.php?option=search-rec&rec=2656). Mont Aux Sources (or “fountains mountain” or “mountain of sources”) is a basalt mountain plateau or plateau summit in the Drakensberg mountain range at the junction of Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal and Free State provinces in South Africa. The plateau has an average elevation of over 3,000 m and is a watershed of several rivers including the Orange (south), Vaal (north), Tugela (east), and others. Although the photographs were most likely taken in different seasons, we can see that there has not been much change in the landscape over 54 years. Nanni took hundreds of photographs of the Drakensberg, can you find them and take their repeats? Thank you Josh for this fantastic #repeat!
rePhotoSA (a joint project of the Plant Conservation Unit and the Animal Demography Unit, University of Cape Town) encourages you as the public or 'citizen scientists' to contribute to an understanding of how the environment in southern Africa has changed and is continuing to change. Repeat photography is an important tool used to understand these changes and therefore it is critical that the repeat photograph be taken in the exact location and as accurately as possible. See our website for guidelines on how to take a repeat photograph: http://rephotosa.adu.org.za/Taking_a_repeat_photograph.php.
If you would like to contribute to discussions on repeat photography or keep up-to-date with our latest projects, please join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rePhotoSA/?ref=bookmarks. To find out more about the project, please visit http://rephotosa.adu.org.za/. Alternatively, contact the rePhotoSA team on [email protected] and follow us on Instagram (rePhotoSA_uct).
Every Thursday we will feature a historical landscape photograph from the rePhotoSA database (http://rephotosa.adu.org.za/Search_photos.php), we need your help to track down these historical landscapes and take a repeat photo.

He asks the questions, “Where is this all going? Is it simply a fad, or the next tsunami of disruption since the internet?”
Gavin is a consultant and trainer at Blockchain Academy and has experience as the head of innovation at a mobile social network, Mxit. He’s also worked in product development at Nigerian e-commerce company, Konga. Both of these gave him the technical experience and network to bring Sharebit to the market in 2016.
