Ministry works to secure boy’s educational future

Ministry works to secure boy’s educational future

The Ministry of Education is working closely with Green Bay High School to secure the educational future of a boy at the centre of a legal case.

“We have been working with the Principal of Green Bay High School on the next steps for the future of this boy,” says head of sector enablement and support Katrina Casey.

“The school has been directed by the High Court to work co-operatively with the boy’s parents to ensure he can complete his education. Although the school has now appealed the court’s decision, it must still work with the boy’s parents in the meantime on the boy’s education.

“We have been in touch with the Principal and the Board Chair and offered a package of support that would help the student return to the school.

“The boy is currently receiving education through a one-on-one individual learning programme we have put together that involves curriculum learning in the morning and work experience in the afternoon. This is working well and he is settled,” says head of sector enablement and support Katrina Casey.

“We will be meeting with Green Bay High and the boy and his family over the next week to ten days to discuss the boy’s educational future.“

“Any transition back to school will need to be carefully handled. The boy’s needs must come first. Currently he is well settled and we want to ensure that any change is carefully managed in the boy’s best interests.

“The Ministry has been closely involved with the boy’s education over a number of years.”

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
