In light of many complaints by parents highlighting that their children were awarded incorrect scores at the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) 2016, the Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Suella Williams disclosed that technical errors, which occurred during the process of tallying marks, are to be blamed.Guyana Times was informed that the information surrounding incorrect marks at the NGSA was disclosed only when parents opted toMinistry of Education Public Relations OfficerSuella Williamshave their children’s examination papers re-marked. According to many parents, after having the Education Ministry review the test scripts, their children were awarded up to nine marks more than was originally recorded. “The result is that some of them awarded more marks that were previously given to them. A student got 516 marks, after the review he got nine more marks.”Speaking to this publication on Friday, Williams highlighted that “In some cases, you’ll find that the Ministry may have made a mistake and so that was corrected and the child got a point or two more and there are cases where maybe the child got a point less. This happens every time. The fault has to do with the technical aspect of things.”She also stated that after the requested recounts are done, the children are likely to be re-appointed to a school that would suit their new scores at the examination.
LA MIRADA – City Manager Andrea Travis on Wednesday predicted that 2006 will see major projects in the city started and some completed. Projects include a new aquatics center, new fire station, sheriff’s station expansion and street improvements. The business community, public safety and recreation all will be enhanced by new projects during the year, Travis said in her annual state of the city address. She delivered the report at a luncheon sponsored by the La Mirada Chamber of Commerce and attended by 90 people. “This is an exciting time because 2006 brings tremendous opportunities to ensure La Mirada remains a safe, desirable community,” Travis said. Stacey Cripe, executive director of the chamber, said she was impressed by Travis’ speech. “She covered everything very well,” Cripe said. “The city is definitely on a forward path. The improvements and the growth will affect everybody in a positive way.” The biggest project will be the proposed $24 million aquatics center that will include a family fun area with slides, play structures and a flow channel area, a 25-yard pool for swimming lessons, a 50-meter competition pool and a spa. Combined with the aquatics center project will be a $6 million expansion to the La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station, Travis said. The expansion will allow Sheriff’s Department personnel to start their day at the main station, she said. They now report to a facility in the industrial area in southwestern part of the city. “The expanded sheriff’s station will centralize La Mirada’s law enforcement,” she said. Public safety also will be improved with the construction of a new Los Angeles County fire station on Beach Boulevard, Travis said. “It will significantly reduce emergency response times,” she said. In terms of development, a Home Depot may be built in the Crossroads Shopping Center, Travis said. Two new businesses – Living Spaces Furniture Store and John’s Incredible Pizza Co. – are expected to move into La Mirada in 2006, she said. The city also plans to make improvements on Imperial Highway and Santa Gertrudes Avenue. Other city facilities also will get help. New playground equipment is expected to be purchased for Neff Park and an elevator will be installed in the La Mirada Resource Center. email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SHAY Given may not have played in today’s showpiece FA Cup Final at Wembley today, but the big Lifford keeper certainly joined in the celebrations as Man City beat Stoke City 1-0.There was disappointment locally for the Delap family – Rory played for Stoke before being substituted 10 minutes from time.When the final whistle went Shay was one of the first Man City subs onto the pitch to join the celebrations. And when it came to climbing the famous Wembley steps, the Donegal man insisted the rest of the team go first – before he walked up with Man City manager Roberto Mancini.There is no doubt that Given wants first team football and may join Liverpool in the summer transfer window.But for today at least he was a happy and proud member of the Manchester City squad.It was the club’s first trophy in 35 years – thanks to Yaya Toure’s goal in the 74th minute. City manager Mancini said: “I’m happy for the supporters. For a long time they didn’t win. My feeling is good but it is more important that their feeling is good.”City’s Patrick Veira added: “It means a lot to the players but even more to the fans. They have been waiting a long time for this. It is fantastic. There has been a lot of pressure on this team. It’s a really fantastic season for us.”In other football news Man Utd won the league.SHAY-ELEBRATIONS AS GIVEN WINS FA CUP MEDAL was last modified: May 14th, 2011 by gregShare 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)

Claire Rafferty says Chelsea Ladies’ desire to play possession football even when under pressure, coupled with an improved attacking threat, makes them a dangerous side.New signing Gemma Davison scored twice as the Blues opened their Women’s Super League campaign with an impressive 2-1 win over Notts County Ladies on Sunday.And England left-back Rafferty told West London Sport the eagerness to keep the ball and remain patient that was so evident is instilled in them by manager Emma Hayes and is also part of the club’s ethos.“We train like that every day so it’s not natural for us to go long even when we are under pressure,” she said.“Maybe sometimes we should go long a bit more to relieve the pressure, but that is not how Emma wants us to play. She wants us to play our way out and that is the mentality within the whole club.“Eni (Aluko) and Gemma are a real force, and Ji So-Yun as well, and we like to let them express themselves by keeping the ball. That allows them to wander and they can really do that and pose a threat.”Rafferty and her team-mates face another away game on Thursday, against Bristol Academy, and the defender said confidence would be high after beating a side they failed to beat in two meetings last season.“We are buzzing to get the first game out of the way,” Rafferty added.“We lost the league only on goal difference but did well to finish second and we have high expectations for this season. It was bit of relief to get the season off to that start we wanted.“It certainly points us in the right direction. Winning that first game felt really good.”You can read Claire Rafferty’s thoughts on the new season in her West London Sport column which will be a regular feature again this season.Chelsea Ladies play their first home FA Women’s Super League game of the season against Liverpool on Sunday 19 April at Wheatsheaf Park, Staines Town FC. Kick-off is at 2pm and tickets are currently available priced at £5 for adults and £3 for juniors/seniors.See also:Chelsea Ladies driven by near missRafferty like a new signing – HayesDavison scores two in Chelsea Ladies winChelsea Ladies proved grit – HayesChapman hails Chelsea Ladies signingsFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
