TEACHER EDUCATION CONFERENCE CONCLUDES

The Eastern Caribbean Standing Conference on Teacher Education

which opened at the Holiday Inn here last Monday (7th) concluded

today with some delegates hurrying away to attend a meeting of

the School of Education Executive Committee scheduled to take

place at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies

on Saturday April 12th.



Represented at the Holiday Inn Conference were Principals from

Teachers' Colleges in Grenada, Trinidad, St. Kitts-Nevis and

St. Lucia, and Chief Education Officers from Antigua, Grenada,

Montserrat, St. Kitts and St. Lucia. Representatives were

also present from the Caribbean Community Secretariat, the

University of Guyana, the British Council, the British Development

Division and the University of the West Indies.



These latter were Professor R N Murray, Dean of the School of

Education, Dr Lawrence Carrington, Vice-Dean at the St.Au ustine

campus, and Mr R M Nicholson, Vice-Dean at the Cave Hill campus.



In an exclusive interview with NEWSLETTER, Mr Nicholson said the

Conference had been a success in that problems had been

identified and discussed. "We did come up with some proposals

which will be circulated to Ministries of Education", said

Mr Nicholson. However, he continued, these are just suggestions.

"We do not have any misconceived idea of our influence, but we

regard ourselves as a professional group assembled regionally who

would make suggestions to Ministries".

CANADIAN AID FOR BUSINESSMEN

Mr Murray Marven of Canadian Executive Service Overseas (CESO)

will shortly be completing a three month term of service with the

Grenada-based Carib Insurance Ltd. which has expanded its

operations to Curacao, Aruba, St. Vincent and St. Lucia.



In an exclusive interview with NEWSLETTER, Mr Paul Slinger,

President of Carib Insurance Limited said the service offered by

CESD is available at very little cost and he hoped that Companies

in the smaller Westindian islands would make more use of it.



"Mr Marven's time with us", said Mr Slinger, "has been invaluable

in smoothing the transition from being a small Grenada Company

into being inter-Caribbean insurers".


Mr Marvin is a retired insurance executive; during his stay in

Grenada, he is accompanied by his wife.
