e-Learning course updates & more – July 2024 Newsletter

Oh my word, it is crazy to think that half the year has gone. In South Africa we have a Government of National Unity or GNU after the recent elections and the new executive of the GNU has now finally also been announced. Hopefully now that the dust has settled business will now start to gain momentum and projects will be released.

Last month we announced that we are making some very important changes to the course content of the Advanced Diploma in Illumination Engineering course. When one starts a project like this, it is only once started that one realises exactly how much work it involves. Every module that follows the removed module has to be completely edited and to be renumbered. When a single module that is no longer relevant, is removed, all subsequent modules must be edited and revised. But not to worry. They say that when the going gets tough, the tough get going...

Is it June already?

THE NEW RADISSON HOEDSPRUIT - Hotel work is like being pregnant for 2 to 3 years and then finally being able to stand back and enjoy the fruits of your labour. The new Radisson Hoedspruit was actually one of the quicker hotel projects we have worked on or maybe the time just felt like it went quickly because of the fabulous owners of this establishment who made the project feel less like work and more like we were working with friends. We fitted out all the bedrooms, conference centre and public areas with wallpaper – some designs by were by local bird artists which we placed strategically into the wallpaper and some of our own designs. The outcome is breathtaking...

Learn how to care for your items

Why would you spend time reading washing instructions?

The short answer is that you should, in order to preserve the life of the items you are washing!

The symbols on wash-care labels were developed to be universally understood and accepted.

Decoding them makes it easy to launder that wonderful sweater you bought in London, or the silk blouse from Seoul.

Basically, they have been ‘broken down’ into 5 types of symbols – each one representing a part of the laundry process.
  • Washtub – washing – often indicates temp as degrees Celsius – e.g., 60⁰
  • Square – drying – how it should be dried
  • Iron – iron settings to use, and whether you can iron
  • Triangle – bleaching – whether you can and which type of bleaches
  • Circle – dry cleaning your garment

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

Take a drive between the rolling farmlands of the Overberg and you will find the quaint village of Genadendal, established in 1738 on the site of the oldest missionary station in South Africa. During the same year, LR Schmidt Moravian Primary School was founded, 286 years ago, making it the oldest school in South Africa! The School is a no-fee school, catering for 420 boys and girls from reception through to grade 7.

When Alex Jellen, the Headmaster, enquired if we were willing to assist with the upgrade of the girls’ loo, we jumped at the opportunity to be involved. This project, however, called for a very different set of criteria to our normal projects, and resulted in a great deal of teamwork, positivity and fun.

Victorian Bathrooms’ vision was to create a space which would be like none that the learners had ever experienced before as most of these girls have only ever known this valley. Our aim was to create a happy, light and uplifting environment and to involve the learners themselves to foster pride and respect in their surroundings.
