Public Holiday: National Women's Day
Aug
9
12:00 AM00:00

Public Holiday: National Women's Day

The holiday commemorates the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against legislation that required African persons to carry the pass Information.

Over 20 000 women of all races and ages from every corner of South Africa marched together towards the Union Buildings in Pretoria in a national march petitioned against pass laws.  

“pass laws” legislation required African persons to carry a document on them to ‘prove’ that they were allowed to enter a ‘white area’ during the Apartheid regime.

Organised by the Federation of South African Women, the March was led by four brave women; Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa, Sophie Williams and Lilian Ngoyi. The leaders delivered petitions to Prime Minister JG Strijdom’s office within the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

The march was a resounding success and South Africa recognises the bravery of these women who risked arrest, detention and banning by declaring 9 August National Women’s Day.

29 June – 8 July 2018 - Knysna Oyster Festival & Marathon

The Knysna Oyster Festival is probably one of the most popular annual events in the Western Cape. It is also something of a celebration of the good life and sport and has taken place every year since 1983.

The Knysna Oyster festival is spread across two weekends that promise constant fun and activities for the whole family.  The Forest Marathon (half marathon), and the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Rotary Cycle Tour, now a two-day event that is the biggest of its kind in the country.

Other mid-week events will include the Wade Bales Wine Festival, the Pick n Pay Oyster and Wine Mardi Gras, the Knysna Lyster Company Shucking Competition and sports events such as the Scottish Leader Whisky Bowls Tournament and the Protea Hotel Knysna Quays Waitron Race.

But of course the stars of the show are undoubtedly the oysters, served naked, cooked or garnished at over 30 local Tabasco Hotspots throughout the festival.

Lingo Links -

Lingo Links consists of small, friendly, informal groups where you brush up language skills through conversation with mother-tongue speakers.

The concept is uniquely South African, and as a non-profit organisation it is affordable to all.  Our aim is Lingo Links from A – Z  (Afrikaans  – Zulu)

There are two forms of groups: 

1. Bilingual exchanges.

Speakers of any two languages meet for mutual practice, spending equal time (usually one hour) on each language.

e.g. Spanish/English or Afrikaans/German.

2. Single medium groups.

Groups where one or more mother-tongue speakers direct the conversation.

e.g. The group meets to speak Greek, Chinese or Venda.
