PHS Working Hard to Save Water

Posted by on in News
Displaying FullSizeRender.jpg
 
You may have seen our new mobile water tank set-up in the last few days. Treated effluent water is pumped from our dam into the tank and water is then transported by mini-tractor and trailer to areas like the front of the school and the staff quad (where only clean water is available).  The 500 litre tank can water, under the influence of gravity, for about 40 minutes.  Because of time & labour constraints, one can't water all the areas in need but at least some valuable plants and important grassed areas can be kept alive. A pump is being acquired to increase the range that can be covered.
 
Quotes have also been sought to lay a pipeline from our treated effluent dam to the front for a more effective water solution.  Inside the building, we have ordered very efficient tap aerators for the bathrooms which reduce water use when people wash their hands.

OFFICIAL REVIEW

Alistair Izobell brings Kaapse Jol to the Baxter for the festive season to celebrate this dynamic cosmopolitan city that he calls home, pulsating with a heartbeat that is filled with the unique rhythms inherent to the Mother City. From the indigenous sounds of the Khoi people to the Malay and Dutch influences that make up this rich tapestry of local music. Izobell has become widely regarded as one of Cape Town`s best champions of local music and entertainment and has created many opportunities for young artists. He is one of South Africa`s foremost artists, producers and musical directors, having started his career at age seven, and later went on to perform in David Kramer and Taliep Petersen`s Kat and the Kings, which earned him and the cast the Laurence Olivier Best Actor in a Musical award.

With a stellar cast of high energy performers the story of Cape Town`s sounds will be celebrated and embraced with festive cheer. Join Alistair and friends on a musical journey that will have audiences singing and dancing this summer.

Posted by on in News

short film festival PHSWe are excited to announce that Pinelands High School will be hosting our first Short Film Festival. With so many budding film makers in our school we thought it would be appropriate to give them a platform to showcase their work.

The Festival will be happening next week Wednesday, the 30th November, in the Reeler Centre. Page Break will be open at 5.30 for refreshments and we will start at 6pm.

Darryn Joshua, the Director of 'Noem My Skollie', and Simon Beesley, the editor, will be judging the films. 'Noem My Skollie' has just been selected as South Africa's entry to the Academy Awards and recently has been nominated for a Palm Springs Award.

Tickets will be available next week and seats are limited. We look forward to starting a new tradition and appreciation for young film makers.
