Monday, May 13, 2002 – ‘Empowerment and Productivity in a Changing Education Environment’- the theme for this year’s Annual District Six Education Conference. The conference which takes place at the Plain View Combined School In the south of the island on Friday May 17th, is organized for all principals and teachers, representing the 13 schools in that district. Some of the schools include Augier, Belle-Vue, Blanchard and Desruisseaux Combined; Vieux-Fort Comprehensive Campus A and B and the Special Education Center.

According to Peter Joseph who is the Education Officer for District Six, Friday’s conference “would provide the principals and teachers with an opportunity to deal with educational issues and to discuss issues that are of concern to them.”

Later this year principals and teachers are going to be presented with the legal interpretation and analysis of the new Education Act. The conference also aims to provide some clarity on the relevant section/clauses that affect them as educators in carrying out their responsibilities.

“ In order to achieve this objectives one of the guest speakers is Mr. George Charlemagne, an Attorney at Law who will deal specifically with aspects of the education Act; so at the end of the day teachers could be much clearer with regards to important sections of the education act,” Joseph Added .

Deputy Principal of the Leon Hess Comprehensive Secondary school Orvil Combie, will be the second guest speaker at Friday’s Conference, who will speak on the theme, ‘Coping with diversity in the teaching and learning process.’

The conference is also expected to promote interpersonal relations among principals and teachers within the district. Over 200 persons are expected to attend the conference.
