Delinquent private schools

Delinquent private schools

first_imgDear Editor,I have read, with concern, a letter published by sections of the media on March 3rd, 2018 under the caption “Private school or terror camp?” This letter was signed by a “Concerned Parent”.Editor, allow me opportunity to support the cries of this parent, and also to bring to the attention of the relevant authorities and the general public my own experiences at another private institution located in the heart of Georgetown.Editor, my daughter once attended a private institution that holds classes from forms one to five. She started the school in the second form, and had moved up to the third form class last September when I was forced to remove her, a few months ago. Editor, my heart trembles as I pen this letter, because the things that my daughter had endured at that institution I would wish on no one’s child.Dozens upon dozens of homework assignments were usually given, and those had to be submitted either the next day or before the said week was completed. The children had to reach to school for at least 08:30am in the morning, and had to take mandatory lessons till 4:30pm (16:30h) in the afternoon. This was further worsened by the children having only 20 minutes’ lunch break and absolutely no extracurricular activities such as sports, concerts, or even tours, so as to give them a well-rounded curriculum. Tell me, how can we expect these young minds to stay sane and not become stressed, when all that is forced upon them is school work and more school work?Bear in mind, Editor, that the mandatory lessons attract a separate fee from the school fee, and was either a few dollars shorter than the school fee; or, in some cases, it was the same thing.Like the concern shared by the fellow parent in the previous letter, although the Value Added Tax was removed from the school fees, the headmaster still continues to charge parents the 16%, claiming he had not being notified by GRA. If that’s not all, the headmaster of the school, who is a popular TV host, has a horrible attitude towards both the kids and, to some extent, parents. My daughter was bullied and harassed more than once by teachers of the school, and nothing had been done about it because of the unapproachable manner in which the headmaster usually carries himself.School should be a second home; however, we can clearly see that these private schools are out to get money, and would achieve that even at the cost of their students’ sanity.Editor, the Ministry of Education should take swift action before this situation gets further out of hand and results in yet another crisis that would deteriorate an already broken institution. As it is, there are few or no laws at all that monitor how these private schools should operate, hence advantage is being taken by these unscrupulous individuals to profit off the situation at public schools and the desperation of parents for a better education for their children. It is therefore imperative that relevant agencies lobby for these pieces of legislation immediately!Yours faithfully,Frustrated parentlast_img read more

PROPOSED EXPANSION OF MANDEVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL

PROPOSED EXPANSION OF MANDEVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL

first_img Related Items:Alwyn Miller, manchester, Mandeville Regional Hospital Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Dec. 29 (JIS):(BY: DOUGLAS McINTOSH) The management of Mandeville Regional Hospital, in Manchester, has secured an additional four acres of land, which will form part of its strategic plan to further develop and expand the institution’s facilities and services.The property, which is adjacent to the hospital on Caledonia Road in Mandeville, was acquired from the previous owner, the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the hospital, Alwyn Miller, tells JIS News that consideration is being given to relocating the outpatient department, which is earmarked for expansion. He informs that the department, which provides pharmaceutical and laboratory services, has “outgrown” the area it currently occupies, resulting in the staff being “overwhelmed (by) the volume of persons using these facilities.” This situation, he points out, makes it “more challenging for them to manage (the significant number of clients seen) within that space.”Mr. Miller says the proposed upgraded laboratory is highly anticipated in light of the fact that “there are some services required in the Manchester and wider Southern Health Region that we have to get done as far (away) as Cornwall Regional Hospital (in Montego Bay)”, which incur significant costs.He notes that the entire Southern Region (residents and other medical institutions) will benefit from having a regional laboratory at the hospital.Additionally, the CEO says that for “security reasons,” the management also wants to separate outpatient from inpatient services, “to be better able to monitor and manage all visitors to the hospital.” Mr. Miller tells JIS News that acquisition of the property will also provide the hospital’s management with the opportunity to explore development and installation of several additional cost effective features, capable of enhancing the institution’s operations.These, he informs, include installation of additional water storage tanks and rainwater harvesting facilities to assist in maintaining consistent supplies at the institution, particularly during periods of restriction or disruption. “One of the concerns we have always had is that while we do have our storage facility here, the hospital’s consumption rate has grown since the facility was established, and it can no longer store sufficient water for us beyond, maybe, a few days,” Mr. Miller points out. “Additionally, it is always a bit disconcerting in times of severe weather, for example, when the National Water Commission (NWC) may be affected by flooding…and damage to its pumps, and we have no water in Mandeville. So, we want additional storage space to harvest water from rainfall,” the CEO adds.Mr. Miller says the management is also hopeful that these projects will be complemented by the installation of eco-friendly renewable energy facilities, such as solar or wind, “to support the energy needs of the hospital.”“We are hoping that in the 2015/16 budget year, we will be able to get the funding to secure the necessary technical services to help us in the developmental stage,” he tells JIS News.Built in 1877, the Mandeville Regional Hospital is a Type B institution, which caters to just over 1,000 clients daily. The institution, which is administered by the Southern Regional Health Authority (SRHA), was initially called the Mandeville Public Hospital. It was renamed in 2001. The facility has undergone significant infrastructural upgrading and service expansion over the years, totaling in excess of $700 million. The most recent was the completion of five major projects during 2013/14 at a cost of approximately $105 million, with financing from the National Health Fund (NHF).These included: renovation and other supporting infrastructure works on four operating theatres; installation of new chillers and supporting air conditioning systems; procurement of food trolleys and meal wares; procurement, installation and commissioning of an X-ray machine; and renovation of Block H, which houses the internal medicine, paediatric and postnatal wards. They were symbolically handed over to the hospital’s management by Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, during a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony, and according to Mr. Miller, are expected to expand the hospital’s bed complement to approximately 230. Implementation of the projects and the development being proposed for the hospital are consistent with the Government’s Human Capital Development priority, focusing on development and strengthening of health care.Emphasising that the Mandeville Regional Hospital “must” be transformed into a Centre of Excellence, Dr. Ferguson assured that “the Ministry will continue to allocate resources to improve the quality (of the) infrastructure, even as we improve the manpower needs for the institution.”last_img read more

Yoshida says Japan doesnt have excuses

first_imgThe Japan national team captain says Qatar were superior, but the 2019 AFC Asian Cup helped the Japanese get better.Japan lost the 2019 AFC Asian Cup 3-1 against Qatar on Friday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.The Japanese had a very good run in the continental tournament, winning six consecutive matches before losing to the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts.And even after not lifting the trophy, Samurai Blue captain Maya Yoshida says they are responsible for their own defeat.“It’s difficult to describe how it feels,” Yoshida was quoted by First Post.“We were too passive, a bit naive and made so many mistakes. We conceded two goals at the beginning of the game which we shouldn’t have – we simply weren’t good enough.”“But they played well and deserve to be champions. No excuses, we move on,” he explained.“That third goal was really tough to accept.”“It killed the game. If that’s a penalty I probably have to jump without using my arms. It was accidental – but that was the referee’s decision,” he added about the controversial decision to award Qatar a penalty kick.“It’s a huge disappointment but we have to learn from it.”Christian Pulisic ‘happy’ with his Chelsea debut Andrew Smyth – July 19, 2019 Christian Pulisic was happy with how Chelsea debut turned out despite it ending in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Kawasaki Frontale.Now Japan and Qatar will participate in the 2019 Copa America to be played in Brazil this summer.“We have to lift ourselves and take the right energy into the Copa America and the (2022) World Cup qualifiers,” Yoshida continued.“It’s probably one of the hardest defeats of my career.”“I got caught out for all three goals. But losing is part of football, he concluded.2019 Japan will now play the Kirin Challenge Cup in March against Colombia and Bolivia.Then they will host the Kirin Asia Challenge Cup against Australia and China.The Samurai Blue will start their Copa America challenge on June 17 against Chile, three days later they take on Uruguay and finish the Group Stage against Ecuador.Let’s go to the @afcasiancup final. #AsianCupFinal#asiancup2019 #bringasiatogether pic.twitter.com/3Uc9nintSh— MAYA YOSHIDA (@MayaYoshida3) January 31, 2019last_img read more
