The Government Technical Institute (GTI) seems to be stagnated since for the past three years no real efforts have been made to transform the institution into a polytechnic one, Troy Polamalu Steelers Jersey, despite talks about a roadmap in that direction.Norman McLeanThis is according to Norman McLean, Vic Beasley Jr Falcons Jersey, Chairman of the Board of Governors of GTI, DeAngelo Williams Steelers Jersey, during the institution’s graduation ceremony Thursday evening at the National Cultural Centre.Expressing distress over the situation, Lynn Swann Steelers Jersey, McLean stated there are no talks of moving GTI in this direction.

I therefore challenge the principal and lecturers and others to make this development, Donnie Shell Steelers Jersey, ” McLean stated.According to McLean, Chris Hogan Patriots Jersey, GTI is faced with the challenge of delivery of training. He noted that it is now fully into competency based education and training with no turning back, Patrick Chung Patriots Jersey, despite his apprehension.He added that his recommended model for the institution is not only the future of Guyana but other CARICOM countries, Eddie Lacy Packers Jersey, and those further afield.Another area which would enhance students’ abilities is attachment with companies.

For the last academic year 150 students were placed with companies such as Demerara Distillers Limited, Banks DIH and Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company.He enlightened that these attachments represent a wonderful opportunity for students and employers to learn from each other.

Yesterday the Guyana National Haiti Relief Committee reported that the cash in hand figure stands at $213.6 Million and growing. As the committee awaits word on the way forward internationally this amount was realised through Government’s initial donation of $205.9 M (US $1m) as well as those realised from two telethons aired on NCN among other fund raising drives. As at Friday the other deposits totalled $4.5M while the cash and cheques delivered to the CDC amounts to $779, 000. In addition the cash received from the NCN telethons amounts to $2.4 M. Guyana Committee for Haiti relief Chairperson Minister Priya Manickchand said the other figures announced remain pledges for now. The Minister said that as at yesterday the telethon drives are off unless there is a public demand for a continuation. As the local response continues she reported that the private sector is getting on board locally with pledges of items as well as cash. Yesterday, NFL Jerseys Outlet From China, too, Jerseys NFL Wholesale China Online, at the press briefing GT&T’s head of marketing, NFL Jerseys Outlet, Wystan Robertson, announced that his company has made available its SMS platform to raise funds via text messaging that collects $100 per message and as at yesterday more than 8000 were received.

Donations are also still being accepted at the CDC Thomas lands and NCN as well as at any Republic Bank. The Minister also stated yesterday that contrary to public opinion the committee has no issues with the Guyana Red Cross but noted that the efforts remain a national joint effort that includes the organization on the committee. On Friday Minister Priya Manickchand announced that the initial amount collected from donations via the first telethon on NCN was $8.74M. Also on Friday the Civil Defence Commission, Thomas Lands, Norman McLean, handed over $500, 000 representing a contribution from the Guyana Gold Miners’ Association to GNCHR chairman Minister Priya Manickchand and pledged that several individual miners will make additional donations. “This is just our initial donation but miners such as Japarts, Cheap NFL Jerseys Supply, the Alphonsos, Authentic NFL Jerseys Wholesale China, Omai and others will make donations shortly.

She said, too, that any talk of granting refugee status will be addressed at a later date should the need arise but stressed that the aim is not to further demoralise the already displaced and hurting Haitians. Already some persons have presented perishables to donate to Haiti but because there is no clear word the local committee took a decision to donate the items to local institutions in need.
