Second ‘Boks for Books’ library opens

first_imgOn Thursday, the first school to benefit in KwaZulu-Natal, the Kwamanzini Primary School, celebrated the opening of their mobile library, with Saru president Oregan Hoskins, Springbok eighthman Pierre Spies in attendance. ‘A vital skill’ South Africa public schools are desperately short of functional libraries. In 2011, the World Economic Forum ranked South Africa 140th out of 144 nations based on national educational assessments. “Literacy is essential for the acquiring of skills and knowledge, and those who can read are usually in a position to make a very meaningful contribution to the social, welfare and community affairs of their respective communities,” he said. South Africans can assist the Boks for Books campaign by purchasing the Springbok Literacy Bracelet, which is available at leading news agents across the country or directly from Blue Groove Africa (www.bluegrooveafrica.com). “Reading is a vital skill and I know that many learners unfortunately don’t have access to basic library facilities,” he said. “I am therefore very glad that Saru are assisting in the effort to make these facilities more accessible in some of the remote parts of the country.” 25 October 2013 Impact ‘beyond the school’ “The library will improve reading skills and hopefully create life-long readers among the learners, who will no doubt become intellectually enriched,” she said.center_img Boks for Books, Saru’s first venture into corporate social investment, supplies fully stocked mobile or refurbished libraries to previously disadvantaged schools. Saru has teamed up with non-governmental organisation Blue Groove Africa on the campaign. Hoskins said he hoped the library would have a lasting impact not only on the schools but also in the surrounding community. Spies shared his reading experience with the excited learners and encouraged them to make use of the library. Kwamanzini Primary School is situated in the KwaNdengezi District in Pinetown and serve pupils in eight grades. The school’s acting headmistress, Bongekile Mbatha said the library would also open its doors to the nearby Amanganga, Nkosenye, Bhongo, Botate and Umthende Primary Schools. The next library handover, in partnership with South African rugby sponsor Absa Bank, will take place in Gauteng in November. The South African Rugby Union’s (Saru’s) “Boks for Books” literacy campaign opened its second library at Kwamanzini Primary School in Pinetown outside Durban on Thursday, following the first library launch at Gcobani Higher Primary School in Mdantsane in the Eastern Cape in August.

Using Interior Poly As an Air Barrier

first_img Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Back in the 1980s, Canadian energy experts urged builders to use interior polyethylene as an air barrier material. If the poly was installed conscientiously, and all seams were sealed with Tremco acoustical sealant, the approach worked well — at least in cold climates.When the same techniques were later adopted by American builders in places like Ohio and North Carolina, builders learned an important lesson: “Climate matters.” In hot climates or mixed climates where air conditioning is common, interior poly can become a condensing surface for exterior moisture during the summer. In many cases, the result was mold and rot.These days, interior polyethylene is not recommended in most U.S. climates, especially in any home that may be air conditioned during the summer.But what if you are building in Alaska or northern Canada? Well, in those climates, interior polyethylene still makes sense. That’s why the Cold Climate Housing Research Center (CCHRC) in Fairbanks, Alaska, recommends that Alaskan builders use interior polyethylene as an air barrier.The CCHRC has produced an excellent video on this topic. In the video, Ilya Benesch, a building educator at the CCHRC, explains how to do a good job of air sealing with interior poly. If you are building in northern Canada or Alaska, the techniques shown in this video (below) are worth emulating.For more excellent advice on building techniques for very cold climates, visit the CCHRC website.[Author’s postscript: in July 2012, when I was vacationing with my family in Alaska, we all showed up unannounced at the Cold Climate Housing Research Center in Fairbanks, where we were warmly greeted by Jack Hébert and Ilya Benesch.
