Pupil gives name to new street
Masiphatisane Primary Shool in Vredenburg now has a street name, thanks to the schools’ grade six learner Awonke Maqhubeha. A street name was never allocated, thus the primary school did not have a physical address.
A new street name was created to give access to Masiphathisane Primary School in Ongegund, Vredenburg. This process involved learners from Masiphathisane Primary School who helped identify and propose suitable names for the street. A total of 117 proposed names for the street were received.
A panel was consulted and a decision was made to recommend the name Petro Street through a submission to Council for approval. Awonke submitted the proposed name Petro Street with reason “Petro SA was the co-sponsor of the building of the Masiphathisane Primary School in Ongegund.”
Petro SA contributed R15,5 million towards the construction of the R22 million Masiphathisane Primary School. Awonke was present at the laying of Petro Street’s kerb together with the Executive Mayor Francois Schippers and School Principal Donovan Cleophas on 29 October 2014.
The load shedding schedule gives an indication of when which areas could be affected/switched off during emergency situations.
Eskom has identified three stages of load shedding (Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3). During the different load shedding stages, there is a possibility that specific areas could be switched off during the times and days indicated.
Please note: Eskom will indicate which stage of load shedding they will apply during an emergency situation.
It is expected that we will only go into Stage 1 load shedding during the winter period. Only if the Eskom system is under severe constraint, will Stage 2 or Stage 3 load shedding apply.
Abbreviations used in the schedule include the following areas:
Vred - Vredenburg, Paternoster
Sal - Saldanha, Jacobs bay, Marais Industries, IDC industrial (Spoornet Office)
LHS - Langebaan, Hopefield, St Helena Bay

SARS Tax Season
1 July 2014 marks the start of the Personal Income Tax Filing Season where taxpayers are expected to submit an Income Tax Return to the South African Revenue Service (SARS), thus declaring income received and claiming allowable expenses for the period 1 March 2013 to 28 February 2014.
|Every taxpayer who meets their tax obligations and responsibilities strengthens the culture of tax compliance and makes it easier for SARS to focus its resources where they are needed.|
