Govt hands out 450 scholarships for UG and GSA

first_imgMinistry of the Presidency’s Department of Public Service has handed out some four hundred and fifty full scholarships for students to attend the University of Guyana and the Guyana School of Agriculture to advance their education.The scholarships include payment for courses and stipends, which eases the burden of students being required to work whilst studying. However, recipients are expected to maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.8 during the course of their study at their respective institution. ‘At the orientation ceremony held at the Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE), Turkeyen, Advisor to the Education Minister, Vincent Alexander, urged the students to take full advantage of the opportunity being presented to them, while reminding them that certification and acquiring good jobs are just part of learning.“Education is a process of being able to assess your environment and to apply your skills and knowledge for navigating the environment; being able to recognise challenges and to confront them successfully,” he explained.Additionally, Alexander told the students that the citizens of Guyana are investing in the education of these scholarship recipients for the development of the country, and he encouraged them to make effective use of the knowledge they would receive.Permanent Secretary of the Department of Public Service, Reginald Brotherson, called upon the students to “look forward to what you can do for your country through the education that you will receive. Your training could create the jobs that are necessary that many others could also benefit. So we are looking at education in a transformative situation.”The scholarships, he said, indicate Government’s commitment to education, national development, and to creating a bright and prosperous nation.The Permanent Secretary noted that scholarships incur a cost to the State, but he said Government is committed to investing in education and training because it is convinced of the transformative power of education.Last year, the Ministry awarded about 310 scholarships, although only a small percentage of those recipients pursued studies at the GSA.The Ministry also offers grants to students pursuing studies at the Carnegie School of Home Economics and The Burrowes School of Art, among other institutions.last_img

first_imgThe Police have reportedly arrested three suspected bandits in Ruby Backdam, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) on Sunday evening while two escaped.Based on reports received, a resident of Ruby Backdam was driving along the main access road heading home when he came under gunfire.He reportedly attempted to overtake two cars – a Carina 212 and a Toyota Premio when the occupants opened fire. The man managed to escape and immediately contacted the Police.A cousin of the traumatised man explained that the Police took close to an hour before they responded to the report. Nevertheless, he noted that as the Police were making their way into the Backdam, they reportedly intercepted one of the cars with five occupants.As the car came to a halt, two of the men exited and ran into the bushes. The Police reportedly discharged rounds in their direction, but they managed to escape. The other three occupants were arrested.The man explained that Police found a gun and ammunition in the motor car. He stated that the residents were fearful given the fact that two men remained at large. He recalled about two months ago, a businessman was shot and killed during the commissioning of a robbery and believed that the group of men were on a mission to commit other robberies in the area.Somdat Ramgobin, 46, also known as “Rakesh”, was killed in mid-May when bandits invaded his Parika Backdam home.It was reported that two men entered the premises – one brandishing a gun – and asked for “Rakesh”.

Unsatisfied, the men then demanded jewellery and after being told that there was none, they took Ramgobin to a bedroom in his house where they shot him to his chest.last_img

We will beat Atletico away, believes Wilshere

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is fouled by Atletico Madrid’s Croatian defender Sime Vrsaljko © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 27 – Jack Wilshere says Arsenal can take confidence from their Europa League semi-final draw against Atletico Madrid, despite the frustration of conceding a late away goal.With the visitors on the back foot for much of Thursday’s first-leg contest at the Emirates Stadium following Sime Vrsaljko’s early dismissal, the Gunners dominated the game and looked set to take a lead to Madrid next week when Alexandre Lacazette headed them in front. But Antoine Griezmann capitalised on weak defending to convert a late equaliser and secure a 1-1 draw.Diego Simeone’s side have lost only twice at home since moving to the Wanda Metropolitano last summer, one of those a Champions League group game against Chelsea.Atletico have also gone 11 home games without conceding a goal, and Arsenal head to Spain needing two to win the game.But, ahead of what could be Arsene Wenger’s last European match in charge as he prepares for the end of his 22-year reign in the summer, Wilshere believes there is reason for Arsenal to be positive.“It was definitely not the result we wanted but the performance was good and we have got to take confidence from that and take that into the away fixture,” the midfielder said.“It is half-time. We cannot be too disappointed. We created a lot of chances. If we create chances and put them away then we have got a chance.”Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday but, with a top-four berth seemingly out of reach, Wenger will be focused on which players will feature in the Spanish capital four days later.Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin admitted Atletico are favourites to progress.“Atletico are a team that know how to make you suffer,” he said. “They know how to create chances and score goals.“It’s only 1-1, though, and the tie is still open. We know it will be hard playing in their stadium but there are positives that we can take.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img
