    2011: The year that wasTAURIQ HASSEN

    IN A YEAR filled with excite-ment, Peoples Post takes alook back at some of 2011s big-gest stories in the Woodstock/Maitland edition.

    The year started off on a positivenote when matriculants stepped uptheir game and achieved a 76,8%pass rate for 2010.

    Peoples Post reported on thissuccess, Matric results are better(10 January).

    Maitland High School improvedon the previous years results, in-creasing from 57% to 73,9%.

    Windermere High School wentup from 57,1% to 74,6%. However,Salt River High School droppedfrom 72,3% to 66,7% and QueensPark High School went from 81,9%to 72,7%.

    In March, the Queens Park Recre-ational Facility made headlineswhen locals challenged the City ofCape Towns R2 million upgrade ofthe facility, raising issues of access,

    security and suitability for chil-dren and dogs Queens Park aburning issue (14 March).

    The sports precinct in UpperWoodstock emerged after the long-standing Queens Park SwimmingPool was demolished.

    The city has since introduced anew trim park, recreational playpark for children, along with im-provements to the soccer field.

    In June, Woodstock Police Sta-tions appearance was the talk ofthe town in an article, Battle ofwords over stations appearance(28 June), when rumours suggestedthat the station could be moving,which did not go down well with lo-cal residents.

    Peoples Post cleared the air in anarticle, Police station not movinganywhere (11 May), which high-lighted the situation.

    The Moore Paragon building inObservatory was heavily tipped asbeing a possible new home for thestation, but station commanderColonel Pierre van der Riel quicklyset the record straight, announcing

    the station would not be moving.However, the buildings appear-ance and suitability remained aconcern, with the lack of parkingspace for police vehicles, no roomfor fast entry or exit in case of emer-gencies, the location of the stationnot allowing for easy traffic flowand the fact that the toilets were lo-cated behind the building.

    At the time, Lieutenant ColonelAndre Traut, spokesman for theSAPS Western Cape Media Centre,indicated the station was on a West-ern Cape provincial property listfor the construction of a new policestation.

    In September, the annual crimestatistics were released, which re-flected the period between April2010 and March 2011.

    Peoples Post ran the article,Crime statistics revealed (12 Sep-tember), which featured the resultsof the Woodstock, Maitland andKensington police stations.

    In Woodstock, the murder ratedropped from 12 in the previous sta-tistical period to only eight, but the

    number of attempted murders in-creased from four to seven.

    In Maitland, murder increasedfrom three to seven, with attemptedmurders dropping from six to fourcases.

    In Kensington, murder only in-creased by one, going from four tofive, but the number of attemptedmurders jumped from nine to 22.

    In November, Facreton receivedsome exciting news, when a R100000 development for Acre Road wasannounced after a proposal was de-clared the winner at the recent De-sign Indaba Your Street CapeTown Challenge competition.

    Peoples Post highlighted the arti-cle, Development on the cards forAcreRoad (7November),which in-dicated that the plans would in-clude a six-a-side soccer field, abench/barrier between the soccerfield and the road, constructed byusingaproven recycling technique,making use of plasyic bottles.

    There will also be an open airdance floor and useful informationin the form of graffiti.
