They don’t just win, they win and they entertain, and that is what St George’s did. They played the best football in the competition; they entertained the crowd,” Miller told the audience.St George’s emphatically defeated former champions Jamaica College 4-0 at a packed National Stadium last Saturday.The school won another major award as its striker, Alex Marshall, won the Golden Boot for his six goals, and will also receive a scholarship grant of $100,000 from FLOW.Marshall, clearly not the biggest talker, except with the ball at his feet, said: “On behalf of the Manning Cup team, we would like to thank you all for your support. We really appreciate it. Thank you. Love you very much.”He was accompanied by his proud mother.St George’s Old Boys’ Association representative Michael Chai said: “I firmly believe that we will be coming here another morning with a different trophy on the podium. I want to thank all those who helped to make this a reality.”The coaching staff, the sponsors who chipped in, whether with cash or kind, on behalf of the old boys, thanks again for making this a reality,” he underlined.Principal Margaret Campbell expressed gratitude.”We just want to say we are proud of you, and thank you so much for all that you continue to do for us,” she said.Inspirational captain Shevon Stewart stressed: “We will continue to work hard to make St George’s the best team in 2015 and beyond. Greater things are still left to come under the guidance of our coach, Neville Bell.”last_img read more

first_imgAnother round of uncertainty has engulfed the already shaky resumption of academic activities a few months ago as the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) that compelled the government to shut down all schools in the country vanished. Meanwhile, a copy of a leaked document captioned, “Proposal for Change in Academic Schedule” is in the possession of the Daily Observer.According to the document, school will close on June 30, for Early Child Development (ECD), Basic and Secondary schools, and there will be no promotion for all grades.This suggests that tuition paid by parents and guardians amid frustrations owing to the economic hardship would be only for what is being termed as a “study class” period from February to June. Among other things, the document has suspended the writing of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams until 2016. But the WAEC National Monrovia Head office is yet to make an official comment on these momentous developments.A source at the WAEC Congo Town office, however, told the Daily Observer via mobile phone that they are yet to receive word from the Ministry of the Education as to whether the exams have indeed been deferred to next year.“We are under the authorities at the MOE and whatever they desire is what we at WAEC will do, but as of now, we have no official word from MOE concerning this year’s WAEC administration, even though students have paid their WAEC fees,” our source said.MOE has not commented officially, but the Assistant director of Communication, Sannor Goe, told this newspaper late yesterday that whatever decision the Ministry intends to arrive at would be announced by the Ministry of Information.According to the new academic calendar, however, no exams will be administered by WAEC for 9th and 12th graders. Hereafter, “Saturday Clubs Enrichment Programs” will be encouraged in all schools, especially at the basic and secondary levels. This initiative, according to the document, is recommended to be conducted every Saturday beginning October 2015 for grades 9 and 12.The document states that Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Reading Comprehension and Writing specialists from WAEC will develop aptitude tests for teachers who will teach the Saturday classes. These classes will be open to all students in grades 9 and 12. Additionally, the document said, contracts will be signed by students for punctuality and conduct, while schools will also sign up to ensure their participation.
