Reading level worries Education Minister

first_img Sharing is caring! 65 Views   one comment Share Tweet Education Minister, Petter Saint Jean (file photo)Education Minister Petter Saint Jean has expressed concern about the level of reading among Dominica’s population.“One of the things that is of great concern to us is the fact that we don’t have a reading population here in Dominica,” Mr Saint Jean told the Dominica Reading Association.According to the Minister, proprietors of newspapers on island have complained that their sales are not what it ought to be, which reflects on the level of reading. This he said goes back not just to schools, but to families and households within the Dominican society as “there is an absence of reading at the home level and even at schools”.“We are challenged because we have young people, children who are registered at our institutions and at age five, six, seven and eight, they have difficulty. We have individuals, who at the primary stage and are not able to read at their grade level,” Mr Saint Jean noted.He is hopeful that with the Dominica Reading Association which was officially launched on December 17, 2013, a greater love and appreciation for reading can be inculcated, especially among the young generation.“I think we need to go back to the days when mammie and daddy would sit with the kids and read to them and allow them to read to the adults”.Additionally, he said, “we need to go back to the days where teachers will focus serious attention on the whole issue of developing literacy skills”.Literacy, he explained, “involves not just a reading aspect but even one of the inherent problems that we have today is that of handwriting”.Mr Saint Jean therefore called for improvement in handwriting particularly among the male population.“We must develop a love and an appreciation for reading,” he emphasized.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Share EducationLocalNewsPrimary Reading level worries Education Minister by: – December 19, 2013last_img read more

The sophomore shot a 65 in the final round of stroke play at last year’s NCAA Championships and again at the 2016 Florida Amateur in June. He and Florida Southern’s John Coultas are two strokes behind Richard Mansell of NSU, who posted a 65-69=134. Blanchet is in fourth place at 7-under par, following his 68-69=137 performance.

Covid-19: Time to Fix Our Sports Facilities, Says Egbe

first_imgFIFA match agent and stadium facilities expert, Ebi Egbe, has called for Nigeria to make good use of the lull in sports as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic to fix her sporting infrastructure.Egbe who is the CEO of Monimichelle Group said at the weekend that the time to fix the nation’s sporting facilities is now, even as he thumbed up Spors Minister, Sunday Dare, for moving in that direction.“The biggest challenge facing Nigerian sports is that of the poor infrastructure in the country. Now that there is a lull in sports as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, this is the time to get it right in that area. If we fix our facilities during this period, Nigerian sports, post Covid-19 would flourish. “I’m happy we have a visionary sports minister that is already towing this part. The moves by the minister to rehabilitate the Abuja, Lagos and the other national stadiums is commendable. “Other states should do the same so that our youths would have the opportunity of doing sports in top notch sporting facilities when the coast becomes clear for sports to return,” Egbe stated.Egbe whose outfit, Monimichelle has won the bid to construct the FIFA Goal Project at Ogborodo in Warri South LGA of Delta State said he would as usual deliver a world-class project that both NFF and FIFA would be proud of.“All the jobs we do in Nigeria and other places are world-class. We don’t compromise on standard and we are going to bring this to bear in the FIFA Goal project in Ogborodo, Warri South LGA,” Egbe assured the NFF.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
