Potters Market at Rondebosch Park

 

Potters Market at Rondebosch Park is the biggest gathering of potters in the Western Cape, featuring over 100 potters, ceramicists and sculptors. The next market will be held on 18 November 2017. Hosted by Ceramics Southern Africa – Western Cape, this dazzling display of exquisite ceramic art will be open from 8 am to 2 pm.

Apart from giving us an excuse to enjoy some alfresco retail therapy, what we love about the Potters Market is that you’re buying directly from source, which means that you don’t pay inflated retail prices. Food and refreshment stalls are dotted around the park, and pooches are welcome. We suggest getting there early to avoid the crowds.

Stuff that caught our eye at previous markets:

  • David Walters and his daughter Sarah Walters’ hand-thrown bowls, teapots, mugs and jugs.
  • Alessandro Pappada’s eclectic collection of functional and fantasy.
  • Troy Seaman’s range of raku sculpture, vases and orchid pots
  • John Wilhelm’s classic oven-to-tableware handmade pottery featuring his iconic stamps.

Westerford High School – Excellence Awards

 

westerford
Westerford High School was invited by our National Minister of Basic Education, Ms Angie Motsheka, to attend the 2016 National Education Excellence Awards Ceremony to be held at the Presidential Guest House in Pretoria on Friday 1 April 2016.

At this prestigious function Westerford was honoured in two categories.

Firstly, in the category “Top performing Public School” Westerford was place second behind joint winners Eunice Secondary School in Bloemfontein and Danville Park Girls’ School in Durban, with Rustenburg Girls’ in third place. I believe this is based on the 2015 NSC results.

Secondly, we received a “Ministerial Award (2011-2015)”. This award, as we understand, is a special award to just one school, Westerford, for outstanding NSC results based on matric pass rate, matric Bachelors pass rate, results in Mathematics and results in Physical Science taken over the five year period 2011 to 2015.

Buying or selling a home as well as moving, can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life, even more so if you are not properly informed, and it is probably one of the most important investments you will make. You need to understand your rights and obligations and learn to take control of the process.

Property and its wealth creating power is not an exact science, but a very complex industry, in which most of us share an interest. Property Power is designed to empower home buyers, home sellers, first-time property investors and owner-builders/renovators with knowledge regarding important aspects of purchasing and selling immovable residential property.

Too many people run into financial difficulty and have to live with disappointments after making hasty decisions and not taking control of their property transactions. Property Power is a magazine (including an interactive PC CD-Rom) in which we cover the most important facts with regard to property transactions as comprehensively as possible, while keeping it simple, user-friendly and easy to read.

If you missed out on the previous editions, don’t despair. Each year, after the Minister of Finance announces the new Budget, we update Property Power and release a new edition. Everything discussed in the previous edition is simply revised and modified to the latest developments, figures and legislation in the market and newly researched material is added.

Updated Information
Property Power is updated and published regularly. You can visit our website at any time to make sure that you have the latest edition and that you are not missing out on any new information, like amendments to certain acts, or changes in the interest rate, budget speech, and so on. We endeavor to update Property Power at least once a year, however sometimes an edition may be relevant for two years.
