David is the best retailer I have worked with in 25 years in the industry. Having worked alongside him for 15 years, I know he will bring to Morrisons a focus on the customer, a track record of delivery, flair, talent, and immense energy to his new role.

Education minister addresses secondary school principals on violence in schools

LocalNews Education minister addresses secondary school principals on violence in schools by: – March 15, 2012 55 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Tweet Education minister addressing principals. Photo compliments: Dionne Durand.Roseau, Dominica – March 15th, 2012…The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development on Wednesday pledged its full support to secondary school principals in their efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour in schools.The Hon. Minister for Education and Human Resource Development Petter Saint Jean told principals his ministry would support their disciplinary measures as long as they conformed to the Education Act (1997).“No principal should abdicate their responsibility and give charge to any child or student groups within their schools. You are the final authority at your school and principals you have to take charge of your schools.“Once you do what you have to do, the ministry is obligated by law to stand with you,” he said.Saint Jean also called on parents to reclaim control of their children, adding that violence in schools was a wider societal problem.(L-R): Hermione Irish – Wesley High School prinicapl , Chandler Irish- North East Comprehensive School, Jerome Bardouille – Isaiah Thomas Secondary School, Josephine Dublin – Pierre Charles and Celia Nicholas – Dominica Community High School.“We have too many homes with parents who have abdicated their responsibility so the home must also take charge. But it also stands true that management at the schools must stamp the seal of authority,” he said.“No 17-year old boy or parent is going to determine what happens at our schools…I am saying this to say that we cannot allow the students of Dominica to take charge of our schools,” the minister stressed.Saint Jean’s meeting with the principals was part of a series of consultations organised by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development with principals, teachers, parents and students of secondary schools.Principals and education officials.
