August 2014
Reflecting back on the fast-paced month of August, one can't help think about the strange earthquakes and untimely thunderstorms experienced. We also proudly remember the South African achievements at the Commonwealth Games which took place in Glasgow over July and August.

Continuing with achievements, please don't forget to register your attendance at our annual function which is scheduled to take place in September. We are looking forward to showcasing our activities undertaken in the 2013/2014 financial year with you.
