Editorial comment

WELCOME to all our readers and I hope the new year has brought new beginnings and a chance to do things right.

Congratulations to the matric Class of 2015. We hope the results reflect the hard work you have put in since the beginning of last year. To those that didn’t make it, there is always an opportunity to try again. Explore your options and give it your best shot the second time around.

The country is still reeling from the uproar caused by a Facebook post by one Penny Sparrow. Who knew a single post from the South Coast could shake up the country like that?

What ever comes from this, may it clearly demonstrate that we need to know each other more. As dumb as that post was, it shows we haven’t even taken the first step to living in harmony as a nation. May this be a lesson­ from which we all learn.
