first_imgFrom Your CareBy Saah MillimonoFrom your care and consolation,Spring forth the pleasure of others,Blossoming in your dedicationAnd strength of will that never falters.You have walked many a troubled road,Your faith tested as though by fire,Your shoulders bearing many a heavier loadBut refusing to retire.Your heart is like an iron woodThat outlives a generation,And rises in a triumphant moodThat leaves no cause for indecision.You have had your doubts,To be sure, and which is only human;But even in those very doubts,You have emerge triumphant likeCeasar the RomanMay the consolation that others findAnd have found in all your yearsBring the best of every kind,Leaving no cause for tears.I RISE By Matenneh-Rose L. DunbarThough the words down my sensesI still riseThough loved ones demoralize meI still riseThough all paths seem cloudedI still riseThough my valley stretch up highI still riseThough tons of filthy water covers upI still riseThough the same old bench gives wayI still riseThough ten trucks fall in my passageI still riseThough the voice of the soul piercesI still riseThough my tears run to bathe my cheeksI still riseThough it is day but darkness surroundsI still riseThough buddies plan to strike your backI still riseThough the task faces many uphill trudgesI still riseThough history says I can never make itI still riseThough men desire to suppress that dreamI still riseThough my eyes thin out due to near fearI still riseThough no one think it is possible for meI still riseThough rain burst fill the once blue sun skyI still riseThough the pens tremble bare in my handsI still riseThough purple splurges wild next to hazelI still riseThough I am weakened and cold from wordsI still riseThough teeth and tongue cohabit they clashI still riseThough time and events rips hearts far apartI still riseThough clamor fills the suppose to be calmI still riseThough in the hands of the all Almighty KingI still riseGUILTY CONSCIENCEBy Varney L.S.

TD slams Education Minister’s “laissez faire attitude” to Minor Works Grant Scheme

first_imgFianna Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue has called on the Education Minister to explain why no funding has been forthcoming from his Department under the Minor Works Grant Scheme.The funding, which is usually paid in November, has still not been announced.Deputy McConalogue explained, “I have been contacted by a number of school principals who are concerned that funding that they were expecting to help them cover the cost of improvement works and equipment has not yet been allocated. “This is putting them in a very precarious situation as they had budgeted for this money but it has not been sanctioned.“Minister Bruton has adopted a very laissez faire attitude to this important scheme – saying that he will examine whether there is any spare money in his Department which could be used for the scheme.“This would indicate that he thinks this scheme is optional rather than essential.“The truth is the Minor Works Grant is a vital funding scheme for schools, and in some cases, especially in smaller schools, makes up around a third of their annual budget. “The Minister’s failure to ensure that these grants are paid out is leaving many schools at a severe loss, and parents may be left having to pick up the tab for works.“The Minister needs to clarify this situation as a matter of urgency by announcing that funding will be made available”.TD slams Education Minister’s “laissez faire attitude” to Minor Works Grant Scheme was last modified: December 1st, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:charlie mc conalogueeducationfianna failminor works grant schemelast_img read more
