Module 26

Planning a national day


To report on participation in or planning of a national day

[lo 2.2]

Learners choose one day from the national days that are celebrated in South Africa, as listed below:

Human Rights Day 21 March
Freedom Day 27 April
Workers’ Day 1 May
Youth Day 16 June
National Women’s Day 9 August
Heritage Day 24 September
Day of Reconciliation 16 December

Learners can do one of two assignments:

Assignment 1

You are a journalist on a regional newspaper, e.g. The Star or The Argus. You report on the origin and significance of a national day as well as on how the day is celebrated. It would enhance the report if you could include one or two photographs.

Assignment 2

You are a member of the town council or city council of your town or city. You have to compile a programme of duties and activities for the celebration of the national day. The programme will be published in the local newspaper and will also be distributed to community members by way of pamphlets. The relevant facts must be presented clearly and attractively so that people will feel inspired to attend the celebrations.

Remember to take into consideration all the different groups you would like to involve, e.g. youngsters, teenagers and adults. Your programme should indicate time, place, proceedings, speakers and activities.

  • The following newspaper report ( Die Burger , 3 April 2004 - translated) could possibly help you to get your thoughts in motion:
  • Freedom Day: This year’s project


Trafalgar Square will be alive with action on 27 April

Jeanne-Marie Versluis

London – Trafalgar Square in the heart of London will practically belong to South Africa on 27 April.

A huge party will be held to celebrate South Africa’s Freedom Day and the tenth birthday of democracy in the country. Various gatherings and projects have also been scheduled in the rest of Britain for the rest of the year to celebrate the tenth birthday of democracy in South Africa. Ms Lindiwe Mabuza, South African High Commissioner in London, said at a media conference yesterday that Mr Ken Livingstone, mayor of London, had given permission for the South African Embassy to use Trafalgar Square for the celebrations “even before we could ask him”.

Entertainers from South Africa and Britain will perform at this event. A book of tribute will be signed at the embassy by British government leaders, members of the metropolitan council, leaders of political parties, religious leaders as well as community and business leaders.

Mr. Peter Baird, one of the organisers of the event, said that on a “normal” day an average of 3 000 people cross the square every hour.

A freedom concert will be held the next day in the Royal Albert Hall in the city. South African and British artists such as Tshepo Tshola, Debra Frazier, Joyous Celebration, Bonganie Tembi and Linda Bukhosini will be on stage at this gala event.

Church services will be held in Britain from 23 April to 25 April to give thanks for the reconstruction and development that is taking place in South Africa. The services will be held in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu will conduct the main service in the St Paul’s Cathedral in London on 25 April.

South Africa will also have a high profile at the commonwealth film festival in June. This festival is being organised in cooperation with the National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa. Various South African films will be screened on this occasion.

A programme of gospel and jazz music will be held in the Royal Albert Hall on 26 May to celebrate 10 years of democracy in South Africa. At the City of London festival there will also be a contribution by South Africa to films, theatre productions and seminars on peace and reconciliation.

According to Mabuza the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra are collaborating on a concert of new music that has been written for the tenth anniversary of democracy in South Africa. The orchestras will perform in July at an event where they will be joined by two South African choirs, the Durban Serenade and Imilonji KaNtu.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
