DID YOU KNOW … that South Africa’s labour law does not include parental leave for adoption? The decision to grant “Adoption Leave” is left up to the company the individual works for to decide whether to grant leave or not for adoption to its employee. Until the Bill that was passed last year(2017) and yet to become effective – On November 28, 2017, the South African National Assembly passed the first-ever private member’s bill to amend the Basic Conditions Employment Act 75 of 1997 (Southern African Legal Information Institute (SAFLII) website) and the Unemployment Insurance Act 63 of 2001 (SAFLII website) – becomes law, adopting...

Recently we attended a “workshop” at our son’s school hosted by Raising Readers SA. Marian’s presentation on the importance of reading to and with our children was reaffirming.  Often, I know I’m guilty of it, I tend to take reading off the list of things to do with our son daily.

MARVEL’S BLACK PANTHER HITS SOUTH AFRICAN SHORES

Last week saw the global premiere of the much-anticipated movie, Black Panther . There was some serious hype around it and I was extremely curious to see if the movie lived up to it. It did! I didn’t rush out on Friday night to watch it with the crowds.

Black Panther is captivating from the opening scene all the way through to the final...
