Warm greetings to Umzimkhulu people
Ward Committee Launch
After the successful Local Government Elections, in order to further intensify democracy, we are now at the stage whereby we have to identify and launch Ward Committees as direct community representatives to account to the councillor. Significantly, the nominees will be coming from sectors than from villages of each ward. These foot soldiers will be responsible for the monthly ward reports that will be submitted to the office of the municipal Public Participation for further interventions and actioning. Through this approach, Operation Sukuma Sakhe (OSS) will elevated.
Health Promoting School Programme
A Health Promoting School (HPS) is a place where all members of the school community work, learn, live and play together to promote the health and wellbeing of learners, staff, parents and the wider community. Most schools experience a wide range of health problems. Some of these problems lie within the school itself. Others are problems of the surrounding community, which impact on the school environment and on health of its learners and staff.
Efforts to address these problems often fail and result in discouragement. The HPS concept provides the basis for the spreading of health ideas and practices from the school to the community. The Health Promoting School, networks and links up with other schools in this process and may become a role model for other schools. A sense of ownership of self and the school is established and self-respect in reinforced. The health status of the learners, educators, community and the environment is enhanced. Many schools have already successfully implemented HPS and a strong network has developed for mutual support and sharing of resources. For the first ever in Umzimkhulu, this programme was launched at Buhlebezwe Senior Primary School in Mvubukazi Village of Ward 20.
IDP OUTREACH PROGRAMME
To take service delivery to another level also to create an enabling platform for the community of Umzimkhulu to develop their service delivery bible (IDP Document), as per their respective wards. The community has to be gathered in one venue to officially express their views. This IDP will be an official guide towards changing the lives of the ordinary people, for the entire five years. This is paramount hence it will define the ability of this municipality towards its vision of being the most economically viable municipality by 2030.
BEST WISHES FOR MATRICULANTS
A nation is defined by how it invests to its future leaders, future leaders are to an extent defined by do they prepare themselves for the next stage of their lives. After the regrettable disappointing 2015 Matric Results, education stakeholders have developed a turnaround strategy. They eloquence of that strategy will indeed be defined by the 2016 Matric Results. We would like to urge all stakeholders to intensify their approach on creating an enabling space for the learners to fruitfully participate on the exams. We therefore would like to wish all matriculants to best of luck to those who have prepared themselves for the 2016 Examination.
Till we meet again on the same platform.
