first_imgThere was confirmation this morning (Fri) that two new Special Education Needs Classrooms have been sanctioned in Dungloe.Donegal TD Pat the Cope Gallagher welcomed confirmation from the Department for Education that Scoil Chroine, Dungloe has been approved for two new classrooms.“The additional accommodation is urgently required at the school, as they strive to augment their already excellent disability and special needs facilities at the school. This facility is to cover the area from Ardara to Cloughaneely, so in effect it has a much larger catchment, which adds to the importance of this decision to provide for extra capacity at the School,” Deputy Gallagher said. It is understood that the two new classrooms and ancillary facilities will help in providing for the extra capacity requirement at the school.“It is essential that every assistance and opportunity is provided for schools such as Scoil Chroine, in order that a fully integrated educational system within our communities can be provided for all the children regardless of circumstance.“The Board of Management, Principal and Staff have played a key role in firstly applying for the extra accommodation and in securing the permission to proceed with the project. I wish to compliment the proactive and energetic approach of the school authorities in delivering for the school and in the disability sector,” added Pat the Cope.“I would urge the Department to use the format of the devolved system, which would in effect give the go-ahead to the school authorities to proceed with the project and to secure the necessary permissions, design teams and bring the project to construction stage. “In the meantime, I will maintain pressure on the Department to ensure that the project runs seamlessly, and no further time is lost in bringing this project to finality,” concluded Pat the Cope.Two new additional Special Educational Needs classrooms approved in Dungloe was last modified: November 15th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgOAKLAND — Matt Olson’s batting stance is menacing. His 6-foot-5 frame towers over the 17-inch rubber pentagon at his white-cleated feet. His lumber isn’t perched readily at his shoulder, but expectantly and loosely just inches from the strike zone.Olson’s game matches his batter’s box presence at this point. It’s safe to expect that Olson’s at bats will spawn something spectacular. With a little more than a week remaining in the regular season — a wild card game looking promising — Olson’s bat …last_img

first_img25 November 2011 As South Africa prepares to mark 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children, human rights activists have called on men in the Eastern Cape to stand up against rape, “corrective rape” and child molestation. Addressing a small crowd at a men’s indaba in East London on Wednesday, the founding member of gender-based anti-violence NGO Men for Change, Nkosohlanga Mkonjwa, said socialisation and the roles of girls and women within the family dynamic needed to change if a shift in society’s attitudes towards women was to happen.Change in attitudes called for “Our women and girls need to be more empowered in their roles in a family,” Mkonjwa said. “The belief that ‘Johnny must kick the ball while Suzie sweeps the floor’ creates an environment in which men feel superior to women, and this manifests itself in society where men believe they can do with women what they please.” Human rights activist and provincial legislature member Nomsisi Bata said that as long as women could walk the streets at night without the fear of being raped, they had not yet tasted liberation in the true sense of the word. Bata urged young men to “stand up tall like real men should” and champion the struggle against women and child abuse in society.‘It’s up to the youth’ “If anyone can get the message across to the perpetrators of these crimes, it’s the youth,” she said. “They are the ones who can relate to these people because most of [the perpetrators] are in their age group.” Eastern Cape Men’s Sector NGO chairperson Reverend Lulama Ntshingwa expressed concern over the high failure rate of the province’s men’s organisations due to lack of funding. He said, however, this would not deter their organisations’ fight against women and child abuse in the country. “We’ll be out in full force during the [16 Days of Activism] celebrations in Mqanduli on 25 November to show our unwavering support for women and children.” Referring to the phenomenon of ritual murders, Ntshingwa said: “The realities of our social constructs and moral fibre that define society have become quite scary. We can’t live in a society where we have our women’s and children’s private parts being sliced off just to make a quick buck.” He said men needed to take a firmer stance against those who commit such atrocities by making their voices heard.

first_imgPresident Jacob Zuma greets Tanya Garande and Hollie Brown during a prayer service for the late Nelson Mandela at the Bryanston Methodist Church in Johannesburg, 8 December 2013 (Photo: GCIS)President Jacob Zuma will take part in an Operation Clean Up for Madiba activity at the Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology in Mvezo in the Eastern Cape on international Nelson Mandela Day on Friday.Zuma said on Monday that the government had decided to honour Mandela’s memory this year through a massive Operation Clean Up for Madiba campaign, and called on all South Africans to “demonstrate our love for our beautiful country by cleaning our surroundings together.“In this way, we will be promoting working together to build our beautiful country, which is what Madiba taught us as South Africans,” Zuma said in a statement. “Secondly, we will also be demonstrating our collective commitment to a cleaner, safer and healthier environment and communities.”Zuma also urged both the public and private sectors to seriously reflect on how they dispose of waste. “We urge municipalities as well to use this campaign to discuss further improving refuse removal services in under-serviced communities.”The President said the Clean Up for Madiba campaign would build on existing environmental programmes, including Expanded Public Works Programme initiatives tackling waste, pollution and alien invasive vegetation, which had created over 700 000 work opportunities and 200 000 full-time equivalent jobs since 2009.It was also part of promoting the country’s growing green economy, he said.“For example, last year, we announced the National Green Fund with an R800-million allocation to support and catalyse investment in the green and lower carbon economy. This fund is now completely oversubscribed, with applications to the tune of some R10-billion, and has already approved investment of over R400-million in job-creating green economy projects with municipalities, other organs of state, community organisations and the private sector.After taking part in Friday’s clean-up activity, Zuma will officially open the Mvezo Komkhulu Museum, which will help to educate tourists on the history of Mandela and his family and how it is located as a royal family in the Thembu monarchy.Watch President Jacob Zuma’s Mandela Day Message 2014 here:last_img read more
