RUBIS, GPL urge more corporate investment in education

first_imgRUBIS Guyana Inc and the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Limited have reiterated the importance of corporate companies supporting the Biennial Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) Fair programme being undertaken by the Education Ministry.They are urging other corporate entities to invest in education as an avenue of facilitating holistic development.Leading the charge was Retail Accounts Executive Rhonda Johnson, who stressed that her company saw investment in education as investment in theGPL PRO Shevion Sears presenting a cheque to Regional Education Officer (REDO) Tiffany Favourite-Harveycountry’s future leaders, thus it has made significant outlays wherever it could. She noted that this principle saw the company supporting the Region Four Education Department’s STEAM fair in a very significant way.Johnson expressed satisfaction in the execution of the regional fair, but noted that in future fairs there were certainly some improvements that she would like to see. “The organisers and participants did a really remarkable job. However, there were some glitches which I trust can be rectified at the next competition if they are going to continue the growth and development of the science fair,” she said.Meanwhile, GPL Public Relations Officer Shevion Sears said she would like to see a more timely start to the STEAM competition. She also said that this year’s competition produced a significant number of brilliant ideas, which she passionately appealed to the Department of Education to ensure are explored thus further helping to bring them to reality.“There were some interesting projects. I have seen some very fantastic work by the students and it speaks very well about the students’ talent and if we can support these endeavours, there is no doubt that Guyana can be a better place. Therefore, for GPL we believe in supporting these initiatives as it plays a vital role in Guyana moving in the right direction and that we learn to be creators rather than accepting what is just there,” Sears said.The GPL PRO expressed satisfaction at seeing that this year’s competition involved a number of nursery schools, stating that it was the right direction for the organisers to go. She commended them for what she said was a well-organised competition, and urged the Department to continue involving more schools and students.The national finals for the STEAM fair are slated for April 3-6, 2018, at the St Joseph High School.last_img read more

School District 60 enrolment down as predicted

first_imgSloan says this is due to a “bubble” of older kids working their way through the school system. The last couple of years saw large graduating classes, but those were followed by smaller groups. Middle school Bert Bowes has 57 less students than last year, but that was expected, as the 12-15 year old age group is the smallest in that area. What wasn’t expected was the 29 extra students at Alwin Holland, 14 more than projected. Sloan says that is likely due to all the new housing developments going up in that area.- Advertisement – Sloan predicts that the numbers will continue in this way next year and then rise the following year as the students currently filling up the elementary schools move up to middle school. “This is a young, growing and expanding community, so by sheer volume, if the population of Fort St. John increases by 10 per cent, the number of school age children increases correspondingly.”Advertisement As for class sizes, all grades are currently under the provincial maximum average, although Kindergarten is getting close, while Primary and Intermediate are comfortably inside.last_img read more
