#JaVotes2016: Holness taunted by PNP supporters

first_img The greetings were returned by the JLP leader. Things changed when he drove into the polling station located in the St Mary of the Virgin Church on Molynes Road and Headley Avenue. Shouts of “Portia!” and “Patrick!” punctured the hitherto quiet atmosphere. Patrick Roberts is the PNP candidate, who is attempting to unseat Holness as Member of Parliament for St Andrew West Central. Clearly energised by Holness’ presence and closely watched by a team of security personnel, the crowd of comrades continued to chant “No Labourite!” Holness, however, continued his meet and greet. The comrades refused to cease even during a tender moment when Holness held a young baby wrapped in a green blanket, saying that his time at the centre had expired. The nearby Drewsland is a PNP stronghold. Similar sentiments were expressed by residents inside the Drewsland community – a PNP stronghold – which was quiet until Holness arrived in the area Leader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Andrew Holness was taunted by orange-clad supporters of the People’s National Party (PNP), a short while ago. Holness was touring his constituency of St Andrew West Central to ensure that the electoral process was proceeding without glitches, when he ventured into areas in which residents support the PNP. Prior to this, Holness was greeted well by supporters of both the JLP and the PNP.last_img read more

Tottenham fans love this Pochettino news, but United fans aren’t pleased…

first_img Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino (right) has signed an extension to his contract 1 It’s safe to say Tottenham fans were pretty happy when their club announced that Mauricio Pochettino had extended his contract at White Hart Lane.The manager’s new deal will keep him at the club until 2021 or until someone offers Daniel Levy a shed load of compensation for his services.And while Tottenham fans cheered, Man United fans jeered as it means there is one less top quality manager available to take over at Old Trafford, meaning they could be stuck with Louis van Gaal if they cannot entice Jose Mourinho.Here, talkSPORT looks at how both Spurs and United supporters reacted to the news on Twitter.last_img

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! INDUSTRY – Change starts from the small stuff.At Workman High School, students and teachers have noticed a dramatic improvement in attitude and environment this year.And it started with a “Good morning” or “How’s it going” greeting from the school’s new principal.Workman has a new administration team led by Principal Sergio Flores, whom students and staff describe as a leader who listens.“It’s so refreshing to have an administration on campus that listens and responds proactively,” said science teacher Greg Wood.U.S. History teacher and ASB adviser Jennifer Buchi said: “School spirit here is 100 percent different. People don’t talk down about the school anymore.”A year ago, students say, the atmosphere at Workman was scary and hostile, remarkably different from this year.“Last year, it didn’t feel like a high school. It felt like we were trapped in a prison,” said ASB President Ashley Pech, a senior.Nearly one year ago, on Nov. 4, about 130 students walked off campus to protest former Principal Sergio Garcia, whom they describe as controlling and dictator-like. The walkout commenced a tumultuous year that included student protests, vandalism, a vote of no-confidence by teachers and a failed civil suit brought against Garcia by a parent.At the end of the school year, Garcia announced he was taking a job at Artesia High School in Lakewood, which he said is less than two miles from his home.He did not return calls for this story.During the summer, Flores, 36, was appointed to the principal post and three new assistant principals were hired.Flores listens to students’ opinions and attends football games, according to students.When ASB needed a convertible for the Homecoming princesses, senior class President Verenice Quezada said Flores called a local car dealership. For the year’s first rally, the gym lacked a working sound system, so Flores borrowed one from another school, Quezada said.Teachers are also happy that Flores includes them in the decision-making and planning process. They say Flores is a collaborative leader who makes people feel important, a sharp contrast from Garcia, who had an adversarial relationship with some teachers.Flores formed a leadership team that includes teachers, classified staff, parents and students to help make campuswide decisions. Earlier in the year, the team decided to hire a librarian when the school had the budget for an additional teacher, and Flores supported the decision.“When we’re talking about major changes to the school … we definitely bring the staff together,” Flores said. “I think it’s a strong beginning but we have a lot more work to do.”Wood said Flores has won over many faculty members because of his inclusive leadership style. “And he says that,” Wood said. “He says, `I need your help. I need your expertise.”‘A year ago, many people on campus were fervently against the former principal. This year, they can’t say enough good things.“(Flores) is a real leader who listens to what we have to say. He’s not a dictator,” Pech said. “People are a lot prouder to come to school here.” esther.chou@sgvn.com626-962-8811, Ext. 2513last_img

LAUSD breaks record

first_imgLos Angeles Unified’s massive expansion program got another boost in 2005 when voters passed a $4 billion bond measure that will allow the district to complete the renovation and construction of hundreds of schools. District officials said the money was crucial to completing their ambitious $19 billion construction program, which will add 150 campuses by 2012. The district also was able to open a record 31 schools this year – including 13 on Sept. 6 – which allowed 28 campuses to switch from the unpopular year-round calendars to a traditional fall-summer schedule. “It was an eventful year for us. By the end of this year alone we’re on schedule to complete 55 new schools and that’s huge,” said district facilities spokeswoman Shannon Johnson.

And in November, officials announced a $7.4 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to boost their efforts to plan and build the smaller learning communities. Board President Marlene Canter created a special committee to work on breaking up massive campuses with thousands of students into clusters of 500-student learning environments. “We are very anxious to operationalize the small learning communities plan,” Canter said. “It’s a smaller environment for students to learn in, and there’s continuity in the teaching staff and classmates from grades 9 to 12, so they’re able to function in a smaller environment in a larger school.” — Naush Boghossian, (818) 713-3722 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
