first_imgREGIONAL Chairman of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Region Ten, Renis Morian, has been honoured for his contributions to youth and sport.He was recognised with the award by a visiting Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America delegation.The delegation, which is here to effect a 10-day service to the communities within Region Ten, was organised by the Bethel Tabernacle Assembly of God Church, Linden, Upper Demerara-Berbice (Region 10).At a simple handing-over ceremony held at the Regional Chairman’s office, Linden, the visiting delegation said that they had sought to publicly recognise Morian who has been contributing significantly to the youths of the community through sports and community development.As such, they urged him to continue contributing adding that they are appealing to others to emulate his efforts. “Despite being in the USA we continue to hear about the enormous and significant work that Mr Morian has been doing over the years and today we would like to salute him for his enormous work and contributions and to urge him to continue his efforts.“The contributions by Morian have been felt by many far and wide and to acknowledge his noble efforts we present him with this plaque as an indication that we are proud of him as a resident and more so as someone who is genuinely interested in youth and community development through sports and other areas,” Reverend Clavis Duke said.Duke, who pastors the church in Linden said that his congregation continues to be very impressive with the significant and consistent contributions that Mr Morian has been making over the years, adding that through his efforts they continue to see a number of young people turning away from negative ills within society.The visiting 22-member delegation is made up of Guyanese, Jamaicans, Trinidadians and persons from the USA.They indicated that while they have been around for the past 19 years they have visited Guyana a number of times and intend to continue visiting.They plan to execute a number of youth and sports-related programmes and projects.

Phoenix Rising School’s Friday Workshops Bring Real World Skills, and Joy,…

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook23Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Phoenix Rising School“It is a problem that so many children love learning and hate school,” says Nick Gillon, The Phoenix Rising School’s Education Director. “It’s a problem when rich, rigorous, relevant and engaging experiences have become the exception rather than the norm.” At heart, he says, the issue is one of equating ‘learning’ with ‘schooling’, and academic schooling at that.But learning encompasses many other skills which are applicable in everyday life, which is why every Friday, Phoenix students from kindergarten through 6th grade get the chance to participate in workshops that run the gamut from crochet to canning, bmx bikes to propulsion science, and acrogym to candle making. The result is enthusiasm, new skills, pride in their work and – dare we say it? – joy.“I don’t know many schools that make homemade spaghetti, bike ride, weave, do pickling and lots of other things,” says Pyrenees, age ten. “This way kids can learn about things that they love,” explains Chatalain, also age ten. “Sometimes if you just get assigned something, you don’t want to be there. When you can choose it, you can easily feel like, ‘I love this because I chose it and I knew what I wanted to do.’”Students find that the skills they pick up in workshops transfer nicely to the rest of their lives. “If you didn’t know how to ride a bike and you took the biking workshop, you would know how to do that skill,” says Helen, a third grader. “And cooking, that’s something we can use every day.”For teachers, workshops offer a chance to teach a subject they’re passionate about. “I get to choose something that I’m really interested in, so it’s not like actually working because I have so much fun,” says 3rd and 4th grade teacher Megan Moskwa, who has taught canning, soap making, candle making and more.“Seeing kids get excited about making blackberry jam really makes my day,” Audrey Goodwin-Arpin concurs. Four days a week she teaches K-1, but on Fridays she has offered acrogym, crochet, jewelry making, knitting and most recently, cooking. “If I like something and I do it in my own life, I transfer that passion to them,” she says.Students and teachers also get an opportunity to mix with people they wouldn’t normally see. According to Miles, a first grader, “You can get to know other people better.” The different grouping of students add to the feeling of a village, says Audrey. “When I see the students outside at recess, I’ve already been their teacher. There’s a different level of respect and a feeling that we’re responsible for all of them, not just the ones in our class. It’s also a way to keep track of the ones that I’ve already had that have moved on from my class.”Here are some of the workshops that have been taught at Phoenix Rising over the last three years:bmx bikesartfairy housescandle makingsoccercookingsurvival skillsacrogymadvanced electronicssoap makingweavingKorean languagepuppetspianotheaterpotterycartoonjournalismjewelry makingimprovsinginglamp makingcreative dramagardeningfiber artsliving historydanceschool beautifulrace carswater colorcarpentryhandbuilt potteryanimepropulsion scienceoutdoor educationdigital photo and videolast_img read more
