Thank You Letter - Timara Bubb SPISE 2017 PETNA Foundation Scholar

A special and heartfelt thank you is extended for providing me the opportunity to attend the Student Program for Innovation in Science and Engineering 2017. Words cannot express my elation in being selected, and further revelation of such a prestigious sponsor. As I am Grenadian, the discovery that Mr. Brathwaite is the son of one of our former Prime Ministers was a very pleasant surprise.

TAMCC Benefits from PETNA Foundation Partnership

The much talked about PETNA Foundation partnership with Grenada’s lone tertiary institution, TA Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) has finally become a reality.

Several TAMCC lecturers have received training and certificates from Masters University in Canada as part of the 5-year partnership initiative.

Minister for State in the Ministry of Education and Human Resource, Senator Simon Steill, has been spearheading this initiative. He stated that the programme would include the establishing of a student partnering programme for “greater student involvement in the teaching process,” to boost students’ competency and confidence.

An infrastructure and development committee will be put in place to explore the re-development of the sites in Carriacou, St Andrew, St Patrick and St George, as, according to Steill, these sites must be upgraded. Government approached the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) for assistance and has been awarded US$500,000 in grant funding.

This new partnership will bring more technical and vocational training to the curriculum — necessary for persons to fill the needs of today’s market — and will make TAMCC one of the leading tertiary institutions in the Caribbean.
