Brand South Africa, in partnership with the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, is helping renovate Simunye High School in Bekkersdal as part of Mandela DaySome 170 South Africans, including from Brand South Africa, the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, are busy renovating classrooms, replacing broken windows and doors and painting walls, at Simunye High School in Bekkersdal in Westonaria in Gauteng.Brand South Africa, in partnership with the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, is helping renovate Simunye High School in Bekkersdal, Westonaria, in Gauteng, on 18 July, as part of the organisations’ Mandela Day commemoration activities.The organisations are also cleaning up, replacing doors and broken windows and painting ten of the school’s classroomsLindi Sibiya, an HR administrator at Brand South Africa, says, “The school is in a very bad state, with classrooms that have no doors, no windows and no chairs. Students have to share chairs or sit on the floor.”The organisations are replacing doors and broken windows and painting ten of the school’s classrooms.Bishop Siwa, presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa and President of the South African Council of Churches kicked off the ceremony at the school with a motivational speech this morning, before the team got down to tackling the classrooms.Siwa had close ties to Nelson Mandela, preaching the sermon at his funeral and leading the Methodist Church’s pastoral care to Madiba and his family.Some 170 people, including members of the local community, churches, and Brand South Africa and Nelson Mandela Foundation staff will be working on the school rooms. Brand South Africa and the Methodist Church will continue to work with the Bekkersdal community to maintain the school.Siwa will also lead a ceremony in which the young people at the event can commit to being leaders in the nation. The newly-proclaimed leaders will plant trees symbolising their commitment to building the nation.According to Miles Giljam, spokesman for youth organisation SACLI, “Planting a tree will symbolise each young leader’s desire and commitment to take up their own leadership space and grow into great trees like Mandela.“The trees will visually remind us over the next 30 years of our commitment to grow as leaders in the same way we see our trees grow in stature. Finally the trees and forests left behind after we die will be a reminder to future generations of the commitments our generation made to the nation.”
Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Tuesday sought an apology from Congress president Rahul Gandhi for Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s remark that local people lost out to migrants from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in jobs.“They [people from U.P. and Bihar] contribute to the progress of the State through hard work. Kamal Nath should answer whether India is a federal structure. Congress president Rahul Gandhi should apologise to the people of Bihar and U.P.,” Mr. Singh said. Mr. Nath’s comments on Monday evoked sharp reactions from the Samajwadi Party, RJD and the JD(U) as well. “This is wrong. In Maharashtra, you hear questions like why have north Indians come here? Why are north Indians doing business here? The same questions come from Delhi. Now this is coming from Madhya Pradesh. If north Indians get together and decide then who will come to the Centre?” he said.Soon after being sworn in on Monday, Mr. Nath had said, “Lot of industries are set up in which people from other States, like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, come to work. I do not want to criticise them, but the youth of Madhya Pradesh remain deprived.” He added that his government would provide incentives to industries that provide 70% of their jobs to people of Madhya Pradesh.‘Attack on Constitution’Mr. Nath’s statement was also criticised by the JD(U) and the RJD. JD(U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar said it was ironic that while Congress president Rahul Gandhi speaks at length about the Constitution being under threat from the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, a senior leader of his party took a stand that was an assault on the federal structure of the country.RJD MLA and spokesman Bhai Virendra said such comments should be avoided as every citizen of the country is free to live and work anywhere.The Bihar Congress unit hit back, saying the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was talking about providing employment to the people of his own State and that should be a priority for the government in Bihar as well.Positive spinBihar Congress working president Kaukab Qadri said Mr. Nath was not spreading hatred against the people of U.P. and Bihar, or threatening to drive them out, something which was witnessed in the BJP-ruled Gujarat and which has been a pet theme of Shiv Sena, the BJP’s ally in Maharashtra. He said the thrust of Mr. Nath was on giving incentives to employment-generating industries in the State.“Herein lies a lesson for U.P. and Bihar where the political leadership seems to have abdicated its responsibility towards its talented and hard-working youths who have to fend for themselves outside their home states,” Mr. Qadri alleged.
The much-talked about reshuffle and expansion of the Union Council of Ministers will be carried out on Wednesday evening amid indications that the ‘big four’ incumbents in Finance, Home, Defence and External Affairs may not be disturbed.There was speculation that Beni Prasad Verma from Uttar Pradesh will be made a Cabinet Minister while Praful Patel may be elevated to Cabinet rank. Ministers of state Ajay Maken and KV Thomas are expected to get independent charge.This would be the first cabinet reshuffle in the UPA-II after it retained power in May 2009.KC Venugopal, a first timer from Allapuzha, is likely to become Minister of state following the exit of Kerala MP Shashi Tharoor from the Ministry. Kerala is poll bound and Venugopal hails from the influential Nair community.The talk is that in the “moderate” exercise, the Prime Minister could go in for changes in portfolios to give a new look to the government reeling under a series of scams.Sports Minister M S Gill is among the ministers who may be dropped.Congress President Sonia Gandhi has also intensified consultations over the reconstitution of the AICC, which is expected soon.Gandhi held consultations with party general secretary Rahul Gandhi as also her political secretary Ahmed Patel amid indications that some of those being dropped from the government would be drafted for party work.Senior Congress leader Ashwini Kumar may also be inducted as a minister of state.Meanwhile, Textiles Minister Dayanidhi Maran has met Sonia Gandhi.Beni Prasad Verma, a member of Lok Sabha from Gonda, who is tipped to be a cabinet minister, also met the Congress chief.advertisement- With PTI inputs
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, July 21 (JIS): Approximately 18 primary schools with small populations ranging from a low of 16 to a maximum of 68 students will be closed effective September 2015.Minister of Education, Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, made the announcement during today’s (July 21) sitting of the House of Representatives.He explained that the closures are intended to achieve greater levels of efficiencies in the school system. The Ministry is projecting savings of $23 million in operational costs from the school closures.Minister Thwaites noted that the 18 schools are among the more than 200 public institutions offering primary level education, which are all underutilised, with an enrolment of 100 students or less. “In most cases, enrolment has declined steadily during the five-year period 2010-2014. In some communities, where the schools are located, the population has been declining, with a small number of youth and many older persons as residents,” Rev. Thwaites said.He added that this has negatively impacted the operational cost for these institutions, noting that while the average per capita expenditure at primary schools amounts to $88,000, in many of these small schools, it is costing up to twice as much to operate them.“Nearly all of the 18 schools targeted for imminent closure have performed below or at about the national average of 77.2 per cent in the 2014 Grade Four Literacy Test. This academic performance is despite the fact that the teacher pupil ratio is less than one to 20 in most of the schools; the ratio is as low as one to seven in several institutions,” Rev. Thwaites noted further.He told the House that the process of closing these schools involved extensive public consultations with stakeholders including parents, the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA), churches, community leaders and political representatives. “The team from the Ministry of Education has been very responsive to concerns raised. However, in the final analysis, we have to make a decision in the interest of student achievement and the efficient use of financial resources,” he said. Meanwhile, the Education Minister assured parents that where the relocation of students has resulted in transportation needs, transport operators will be contracted to take children to and from school.He added that the estimated total cost for transportation is $106,000 daily, with an estimated annual cost of $20 million.Also, permanent staff at the schools to be closed will be facilitated for employment through the relevant authorities and unions.“Through the necessary consultations and agreement with affected parties, teachers will either be relocated under the voluntary relocation exercise, retired or to be asked to opt for early retirement,” Rev. Thwaites said.He noted that the students from the affected schools have been transferred to others, where they can “access richer and more diverse learning experience.”“We encourage parents and school personnel to assist the students as they grow through a period of change. We are confident this can be a positive move for the children in attaining their education,” the Education Minister said.The schools, which will be closed in September are: Bowden Hill Primary, Tower Hill Primary, Clifton Primary and Mount St. James All-Age in St. Andrew; Black Hill All-Age and Belvedere Primary School in Portland; Pear Tree River Primary in St. Thomas; Preston Hill Primary and Rose Bank Primary in St. Mary; Brittonvale Primary, Clydesdale Primary, Jefferyville Primary and Watsonville Primary in St. Ann; Alps Primary and Infant school in Trelawny; Hillsbrook Primary in Hanover; Auchtembeddie Primary and Junior High in Manchester; Hopeton Primary in St. Elizabeth; and Hartlands Primary in St. Catherine.

Star Wars told by a CNET intern who’s never seen it He orders his Stormtroopers to arrest Doza, but the captain tells droid 4D-M1N (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) to “stop them.” She goes into a previously unseen combat mode and takes several troops down before being blasted by Pyre. With his ally destroyed, Doza is tossed into a cell.Pyre’s shiny gold armor looks beautiful in this scene’s bright lighting. He’s a total jerk but has plenty of style.The Resistance members hatch their plan. Lucasfilm The Colossus is more than a platformNeeku Vozo (Josh Brener), Kel (Anthony Del Rio) and Eila (Nikki SooHoo) end up in the Colossus’ main control room and back Kaz up by opening and closing hatches. However, they also discover that the platform has a hyperdrive.This basically confirms that the Colossus is a mobile space station; a very exciting prospect. Kaz orders Neeku to get the platform in the air. TV and Movies Culture Tags Comments Now playing: Watch this: All the Star Wars movies, from the cheesy to great, ranked 2 It’s great to finally see the emotional weight of Hosnian Prime’s destruction. Princess Leia’s reaction added some depth to Alderaan being destroyed in A New Hope, but Hosnian Prime was just an unnamed world getting blown up in The Force Awakens. At last, we’ll see a survivor reacting to it.Even though the New Republic can’t help any more, there are still two sources of backup in play for the second part of the season finale. A number of Kaz’s friends went to Takodana to seek help (most likely from Maz Kanada) and the pirates are still itching for a little payback after being betrayed by the First Order.Star Wars Resistance airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD. Share your voice 5:29 Assuming they manage to kick the First Order off it, the Colossus could end up being the Resistance’s base after it was scattered in The Last Jedi. This is major speculative territory, but it could make a cinematic appearance in Episode IX — is it too much to hope that some of the characters could make their live-action debuts as well? Justin Ridge, one of the show’s executive producers, hinted at the possibilities around this in an interview with Good Morning America last week.These guys look super cool. Lucasfilm Scuba troops!Seeing new Imperial units was always fun in Rebels (the previous Star Wars CGI show), but we haven’t really seen any new First Order troopers in Resistance… until now. As he swims outside the Colossus, Kaz encounters a pair of Stormtroopers in scuba gear.Like the jumptroopers in Rebels, their specialized outfits are awesome. Their blasters also have a cool effect on the water when they open fire on Kaz, even if they’re predictably poor shots.Tierny sows the seeds of doubt in Tam. Lucasfilm Tam gets an offerThe very charming First Order Security Bureau agent Tierny (Sumalee Montano) continues to get into the head of captive mechanic Tam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath) by making her believe Kaz and her boss Jarek Yeager (Scott Lawrence), who’s also in First Order custody, betrayed her.With Tam set against her friends, Tierny offers to make her dream of becoming a pilot come true if she joins the First Order. Since her prospects on the Colossus seemed limited, this is pretty much the offer of a lifetime. Will she go for it?Kaz and Tam sneak around before coming around the holo of Hux’s speech. Lucasfilm There is no more New RepublicKaz’s plan goes awry in the closing moments of this episode, when he and Torra Doza (Myrna Velasco) see a holographic projection of General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) delivering his fanatical Starkiller Base speech from The Force Awakens.Then the First Order superweapon fires, wiping out five planets in the Hosnian system. This includes Hosnian Prime, the seat of the New Republic government and Kaz’s homeworld.”My parents… my home,” he says, bringing the episode to a dark conclusion. 23 Photos The First Order is about to come out of the shadows, as General Hux delivers his speech. Lucasfilm Well, that escalated quickly.We’re in the first half of the two-part season 1 finale of CGI animated series Star Wars Resistance and thrown right into the events of The Force Awakens.With the Colossus refueling platform underwater, two of his friends in First Order custody and his cover blown, Resistance-spy-posing-a-mechanic Kazuda Xiono (AKA Kaz, played by Christopher Sean) plans a daring rescue. After that, he’s going to get to a shuttle and escape to Hosnian Prime, where he’ll persuade his father — who’s a New Republic senator — to send reinforcements and wrest the Colossus from First Order control.A solid plan…Doza’s droid is deadlyFinally sick of the First Order pushing people around on his platform, Captain Doza (Jason Hightower) confronts Commander Pyre (Liam McIntyre) and threatens to bring in the New Republic.”We are well beyond the Republic’s reach,” says the ever-sinister Pyre. “Fortunately, they are not beyond ours.” Disney Star Wars
