Residents of Annotto Bay Benefit from Skills Training

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail A number of persons in Annotto Bay and surrounding communities in St. Mary are benefiting from skills training in food preparation, which is designed to improve their employability.The programme, which began in January of this year, is the collaborative effort of the Annotto Bay Methodist Church and the business community.Louise O’Hara, co-ordinator of the training programme, told JIS News that 13 persons were participating in the sessions, which were held on Thursday of each week at the Methodist Church Hall. Areas covered are meal and drink preparation, the making of preserves and cake and pastry making.Already, she said, the participants have learnt to prepare breadfruit drink, coconut bun, duckunoo, cho-cho and carrot fritters and sweet potato biscuits. Mrs. O’Hara said there were plans to introduce sewing as part of the training effort, noting that a sewing machine has been acquired, while crochet would also be introduced.With the knowledge and skills gained, it is hoped that the participants would establish small business ventures in their communities, she told JIS News.Mrs. O’Hara lauded the business community for supporting the programme, citing the Jamaica National Building Society, which has provided well-needed equipment. She appealed to other organizations in the town to follow example and support the programme, which is designed to assist needy residents.

New funding to expand Goldfields migrant employment program

first_imgNew funding to expand Goldfields migrant employment program McGowan Government invests additional $300,000 into the highly successful Goldfields Migrant Employment ProjectState Government backs critical supply of skilled and non-skilled workers into the booming GoldfieldsProgram has relocated and connected 50 new migrants into work in the Goldfields The McGowan Government will invest an additional $300,000 over two years into the successful Goldfields Migrant Employment Project to continue to bring new workers to the Goldfields.The investment will help the Goldfields Community Legal Centre consolidate the unique solution to the region’s labour shortage, and brings the McGowan Government’s total investment into the program to $500,000.The Goldfields Migrant Employment Project was a pilot program funded through the first round of the Regional Economic Development grants program, and has successfully relocated and connected 50 Perth-based migrants into work in the Goldfields.Project participants have been placed in a range of jobs including ICT workers, trades assistants, mining services, delivery and truck drivers, carers and cleaners, and professional placements.The Goldfields Migrant Employment Project is one of several initiatives that the State Government is supporting to meet the rising demand for workers in the Goldfields.As stated by Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan:“Between the increased mining activity and State Government projects coming online, the Goldfields-Esperance region is experiencing a high demand for labour in most sectors.“This program has been an innovative and very successful way to bring migrants based in Perth to a new life in the Goldfields.“Relocating one person has often resulted in other family members also showing interest in the Goldfields opportunities – we have families bringing their children, using local schools and participating in local community groups.“This additional funding will ensure the program can continue and expand over the next two years, building on the group of 50 migrants already connected into local jobs in the Goldfields.“Well done to the Goldfields Community Legal Centre and the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission for embracing the idea and driving outstanding results.” /Public Release.

Late goals from Coutinho and Neymar help Brazil beat Costa Rica Serbia CEST Juan Carlos Gracia Switzerland didn’t give up, though, and little by little they took control of the game, showing that they are a compact side who know how to compete. The comeback came after the break. Xhaka levelled the scores with a great effort from outside the box and then Shaqiri, the game’s best player, sealed the win, applying the finishing touch to a perfect counter-attack. It was a deserved win which puts the Swiss within touching distance of the last 16.  22/06/2018 Upd. at 23:03 Serbia, who for large parts of the night looked set to book their place in the last 16, must now beat Brazil in their final game to avoid exiting the competition early. Brazil have still not qualified, either, but a draw will be enough for them to finish at least second in the group. No one will doubt that Switzerland will get three points against Costa Rica, who are now eliminated.  Suiza SUI Neymar’s message for Brazil fans after late Costa Rica win Switzerland came from behind to beat Serbia 2-1 and, with one game to go, edge closer towards the last 16 of the World Cup in Russia. They took control of the game in second half with goals from Xhaka — a spectacular long range effort — and Shaqiri cancelling out Mitrovic’s fifth minute opener.  It was an exciting game which was finally won by the more competitive team. Serbia started well and Mitrovic gave them an early lead with a perfect header. Those early minutes proved to be Serbia’s best spell and they could have increased their lead. last_img read more

Stephen F. Austin Roberts Named Women’s Basketball Player of the Week

first_imgFRISCO, Texas – Stephen F. Austin senior center Porsha Roberts has been named Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Honorable mention this week goes to Abilene Christian sophomore forward Sydney Shelstead, Southeastern Louisiana senior guard Elizabeth Styles and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi sophomore forward Camesha Davis. To receive honorable mention, a player must receive votes from 25 percent of the Southland women’s basketball sports information directors. Roberts led the Ladyjacks to an impressive 72-60 victory over the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday in SFA’s only game of the week. The senior center scored 21 of her game-high 29 points in the second half to lift her team over the Pac-12 foe. Roberts came one rebound shy of her fifth double-double of the season, finishing with nine boards – five of which came on the offensive glass. Her dominance down low helped the Ladyjacks outscore the Wildcats 38-30 in the paint and 18-11 in second chance scoring – two statistical categories that proved to be the difference in the game. Roberts shot nearly 70 percent from the field (11-for-16) in the contest and owns a 61 percent field goal percentage overall on the year.center_img Each school’s sports information director nominates and votes for the players of the week, though is not permitted to vote for his or her own player.last_img read more
