Easpa soiléireachta Fós Ann maidir le Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga agus Scoileanna Breise – Doherty

first_imgTá easpa soiléireachta an rialtais ó thaobh na scoileanna breise a bhí le bheith páirteach i Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga don scoilbhliain reatha á cháineadh go géar ag Teachta Pearse Doherty.Tagann na tráchtaireachtaí déanta ag Teachta Doherty sna sála ar fhreagra ar Cheist Dála a bhí tugtha ag an Aire Gaeltachta ina theip air gealltanas a thabhairt go gclúdófar na scoileanna breise a bhí fógartha ag an Rialtas mar chuid den scéim.Deir Teachta Doherty “Mar is eol d’achan duine, tá uiríll á ndéanamh agamsa le dornán míonna anuas ar son scoileanna mar gheall ar na moilleanna tubaisteacha chun Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga a sheachadhadh. “Fógraíodh i lár mhí Mheán Fómhair go mbeidh trí scoil déag breise ann i mbliana mar ránnpháirtithe don scoilbhliain 2016/17- agus scoileanna i nDún na nGall, Pobalscoil na Rossan; Scoil Náisiúnta an Chéidigh; Scoil Náisiúnta Mhín na Gabhann; agus Scoil Náisiúnta an Bhrocaigh, ina measc.“In ainneoin an fógra seo, b’éigean dom riar na scéime a chur os chomhair an Aire i nDíospóireacht sa Dáil mar bhí Cúntóirí fós le ceapadh do scoileanna agus iad ar tí dul ar bhriseadh lárthéarma.“D’admhaigh an Aire go ndéarna sé faillí chun a chuid dualgaisí a chomhlíonadh ó thaobh na scéime agus na scoileanna breise a bhí le cur san áireamh, agus thoiligh sé go n-íocfar airgead riaracháin agus go mbeidh na socruithe sin curtha i bhfeidhm ar an toirt.“Maidir leis na scoileanna breise a fógaraíodh mar rannpháirtaithe nua sa scéim, mhaígh an Aire go dtabharfar cuidiú do na scoileanna breise ach caithfear comhairle na Roinne a fháil chun a chinntiú gur scoileanna Gaeltachta iad agus go bhfuil siad ag múineadh trí mheán na Gaeilge sula ndéanfar é seo. “Bheartaigh mé Ceist Dála a chur ar an Aire arís an tseachtain seo ina thaobh, agus d’fhiafraigh mé de cén dul chun cinn atá déanta ionas go mbeidh na cúintóirí in ann dul i mbun oibre sna scoileanna seo.“Ar an drochuair, theip ar an Aire ina fhreagra gealltanas a thabhairt go gclúdófar na scoileanna breise, agus tá easpa soiléireachta fós ann maidir lena rannphairtíocht sa scéim.“Is cás nairéach é seo agus, chan amháin sin, tá an Aire ag cliseadh ina dhualgas i leith na Gaeilge.”CríochUncertainty Continues to Surround Irish Language Assistance Scheme and Additional Schools – Doherty Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Deputy Pearse Doherty has strongly condemned the Government over the lack of certainty surrounding the Irish Language Assistance scheme ‘Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga’ for the current school year.Deputy Doherty’s comments come following a reply to a Parliamentary Question from the Minister for the Gaeltacht in which he fails to to give a commitment that the additional schools which had been announced by the Government will now be covered as part of the scheme.Deputy Doherty said:“As everyone knows, I have been making representations on behalf of schools for some months now over the terrible delays to deliver the Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga.“Thirteen additional schools had been announced in the middle of September as participants for the academic year 2016/17- and schools in Donegal, namely Pobalscoil na Rossan; Scoil Náisiúnta an Chéidigh; Scoil Náisiúnta Mhín na Gabhann; agus Scoil Náisiúnta an Bhrocaigh, were also to be included.“In spite of this announcement, I was forced to raise the administration of the scheme with the Minister during a Dáil debate as Assistants had yet to be appointed to schools which were due to go off on Midterm break.“The Minister admitted that he failed to fulfil his duties in relation to the scheme and also in respect of the additional schools that were to be included, and he conceded that the administrative funding for the programme would be allocated and that these measures would be implemented immediately.“Concerning the additional schools which had been announced as new participants, the Minister claimed that help would be provided to these extra schools however, advice would first have to be sought from the Department in order to clarify if these are Gaeltacht schools and that they are teaching through the medium of Irish before this could be done.“This week I again decided to table a Dáil Question to the Minister on this issue, and I asked him to give details of the progress which had been made to enable Assistants to start work in these schools.“Unfortunately, the Minister failed to give a commitment that these extra schools would be covered, and there is still a lack of clarity in relation to their participation in the scheme.“This is a shameful situation and, not only that, but the Minister is failing in his duties with respect to the Irish language.”Easpa soiléireachta Fós Ann maidir le Scéim na gCúntóirí Teanga agus Scoileanna Breise – Doherty was last modified: November 11th, 2016 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more

South Africans at the frontier on Play Your Part TV

first_imgLinzi Lewis wears many hats; she describes herself as an urban geographer and ethno-botanistThe sixth episode of Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part television series, which airs on SABC 2 on Sunday 20 July at 9pm, features pioneering South Africans who are Playing their Part by pushing the boundaries of science and technology, the environment and beyond – into space.The episode features Sandile Ngcobo, Mandla Maseko, Linzi Lewis and Adam Levy, as well as a closer look at a groundbreaking multi-billion dollar project taking place in the remote Northern Cape province – the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).Breakthrough experimental work by University of KwaZulu-Natal scientist Sandile Ngcobo as part of his PhD research has led to the development of a world-first digital laser set to open up revolutionary new technologies for medicine, communications, manufacturing, product development and more.Ngcobo was a key part of the team at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’s National Laser Centre that demonstrated that, instead of resorting to expensive optics or other special mediating devices to control the shape of the light coming out of a laser, laser beams can be digitally controlled from inside the laser device itself.Ngcobo said he believed the digital laser would prove to be a “disruptive” technology. “This is technology which may change the status quo and which could create new markets and value networks within the next few years or decade.”It is an extraordinary dream come true. Like music to Mandla Maseko’s ears, this part-time DJ will blast off into space, literally. No-one in Maseko’s family has ever stepped outside South Africa, but now the 25-year-old is preparing to rocket into space in 2015.Maseko won the global Axe Apollo Space Academy competition for an hour long sub-orbital trip of 62 miles, or about 100 kilometres. Handpicked for the trip on the Lynx Mark II Spaceship, Maseko is one of only 23 civilians from around the world to win a seat on the space mission. He saw off a million other entrants to emerge victorious.Linzi Lewis wears many hats; she describes herself as an urban geographer and ethno-botanist. Fiercely protective of her Mother Earth, she says she is constantly mindful of her relationship between herself and the planet.It feels natural for her to ride her bicycle 15 km to work every day. This ceremonial cycle is something she believes allows her to be more mindful of the world and is a healthier, more environmentally friendly option.“I ride my bike for a few reasons. It is where I feel really free. I love riding bicycles and know it’s also possible to do this in Joburg. I believe we need to challenge ourselves, particularly in this society, and challenge the fear we are engrained with growing up here. And not only is it freeing and liberating to do this, it has effects on people who see. It’s all about transforming people’s perceptions, and when they see you riding your bike through the inner city, through Yeoville, etc., they see more possibilities, and hopefully more people will challenge themselves and transform their own behaviours.”The answers to some of astronomy’s biggest questions may come straight out of the Karoo when construction on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) begins in 2018.The SKA is a radio telescope which will scour the universe for information to give scientists more data on dark matter, black holes, energy particles and the formation of stars and galaxies. The final construction will look like a field of giant satellite dishes.The SKA Organisation, a private non-profit company based in the UK, is running the project. Both South Africa and Australia will host SKA with 70% of the project being based in the Karoo. The first phase of construction is expected to start in 2018 with phase two commencing in 2023 and ending in 2030.The core site in South Africa will be located 100km west of Carnarvon, Northern Cape.last_img read more
