DGS students protest outside Parliament

first_img 171 Views   one comment Tweet Share Students of the Dominica Grammar School protesting outside of Parliament on Thursday morning. The Dominica Grammar School (DGS) has been at the center of controversy for the second consecutive day.On Wednesday teachers staged a “sit in” refusing to teach classes following an attack on one of their colleagues by a student.On Thursday the students decided to mount their own protest citing security issues as a major concern.“We are out of school today because students started throwing chairs and desks at teachers and all over the schools compound,” one student told Dominica Vibes after our reporter inquired why such a large number of them were in the streets during school hours.“That not finishing so. We want the teachers to teach us and expel the boy they are protesting about because we want to learn,” another student yelled.The students who apparently planned this protest action bore placards written “We need security”, “Mock exams in two weeks we the students need security,” among others.The students matched to the Financial Center in Roseau and then on to the Parliament building while Parliament was in session and were asked to leave by the police.Meantime education officials and members of the Dominica Teachers Association have met to address the problem.Chief Education Officer Steve Hyacinth said the issue of security at schools has been raised and this is being assessed.He said some measures have already been implemented including the availability of security guards at the schools.Hyacinth also noted that the student in question was suspended but that the student has to be accessed further and the matter could lead to an expulsion.Dominica Vibes News EducationLocalNewsSecondary DGS students protest outside Parliament by: – February 16, 2012center_img Sharing is caring!

CONFIRMED: Daniel Sturridge signs new 5-year contract with Liverpool

first_imgDaniel Sturridge has pledged his future to Liverpool by signing a new contract which will keep him at Anfield until 2019.The new five-year deal is heavily incentivised and could net the Liverpool striker almost £40m.Sturridge’s pay packet is expected to soar from £65,000-a-week to beyond £150,000-a-week if he is playing and scoring regularly.Talks began at the end of last season and, despite the player’s representatives and the club being apart at the start of the month, common ground was found to tie Sturridge’s long term future to the Anfield club.As with all the contracts now on offer from Liverpool, the terms are performance-related and mean Sturridge will be rewarded financially for his progress on the pitch.The improved deal is a reflection of the strides Sturridge has made since arriving on Merseyside from Chelsea for £12m in January 2013 with 36 goals plundered in just 52 appearances. Sturridge has been sidelined for a month with a thigh injury sustained while with England and is unlikely to face West Brom tomorrow.“He has had a Grade One injury now for near on four weeks which is a long time,” said manager Brendan Rodgers.last_img read more
