Impact on school attainment Impact on school attainment Many schools have found that daily storytelling can have a dramatic influence on progress in composition. For instance, the initial teacher research into this approach focused on 4-and 5-year-olds in Reception classes.
Introduction We must in this case consider the difficult and important question of the requirements, including those of fairness and justice, that must be complied with in the process of the relocation of a large community so that better housing may be built in these informal settlement areas.
This is an application for leave to appeal against a judgment and a rather unusual order of the Western Cape High Court, Cape Town 1 for the relocation of 4 households said to consist of around 20 residents from a large informal settlement known as Joe Slovo settlement area Joe Slovo settlement.
I must say at this early stage that the relocation order was sought and granted in order to facilitate the development there of better quality housing than the informal housing presently in use. This is described in more detail later. The applicants are, in effect, all the people who are obliged by the order of the Western Cape High Court, Cape Town to relocate.
They are represented in these proceedings as they were in the High Court by two committees.
The one is described as the committee chaired by Mr Penze 3 while the other is referred to as a task team chaired by Mr Mapasa. Although the arguments submitted by the legal representative of each committee differed somewhat, they supported and complemented each other.
In the circumstances, all the people who are subject to the order of the High Court and who are in effect the applicants for leave to appeal will be referred to as the applicants.
The application for leave to appeal conveys that the two committees together represent the applicants and the entire Joe Slovo community. This was not questioned by anyone and this judgment will accept that this is so without qualification.
The City of Cape Town the Citythe owner of the property occupied by the applicants, did not participate in the eviction proceedings. The relocation order was instead obtained at the instance of the three respondents.
Thubelisha Homes, the first respondent, has been charged with the responsibility of developing the housing at the Joe Slovo settlement. The national and Western Cape provincial Ministers responsible for housing are the second and third respondents respectively.
Although argument was filed separately on behalf of the first and third respondents on the one hand and the second respondent on the other, they make common cause on every issue and can be referred to simply as the respondents.
They vigorously defended the High Court order. Both are non-governmental organisations. The amici were not separately represented and advanced additional dimensions in support of the applicants.
These will be considered in due course. I have already described the High Court order as unusual. It reads as follows: Those who are subject to this order are interdicted and restrained — once they have vacated or been ejected from the area known as Joe Slovo informal settlement — from returning thereto for the purpose of erecting or taking up residence in informal dwelling.
First Applicant is directed — in accordance with its tender to do so — to render assistance to the parties affected to move their possessions to the extent that it is able to do so.interpretations, to talk effectively about a book, deepening their understanding, shifting their ideas, thinking together as a group and moving comprehension forwards.
