Lago Sponsors Chemistry Course

For Group of Island Schoolteachers

Learning is a continuous
process not only for trade and
industry personnel, but for
educators as well. With the
advance of science and tech-
nology, students must be bet-
ter prepared to follow advanc-
ed studies in various fields.
In Aruba, MULO and UTS
graduates wishing to follow
an engineering curriculum at
U.S. colleges generally find
they need a higher level of
chemistry training than is
available at these schools.
Without this special chemis-
try knowledge, they may have
to follow a one-year prep
training before entering col-
To give teachers of MULO
and UTS schools a better
knowledge of chemistry a stu-

dent needs for college en-
trance, Lago has sponsored a
special chemistry course for
the teachers involved.
A group of eleven island
teachers have recently com-
pleted a 9-month chemistry
course under direction of Hud-
man A. Hoo, a chemist in La-
go's Laboratories. In less than
a year's time, these teachers
covered a rigorous theoretical
and practical chemistry pro-
gram that would otherwise
take three years to complete
in a regular HBS program.
Every Monday night they had
followed three-hour classes at
the Colegio Arubano.
The presentation of certifi-
cates for completing the che-
mistry course was made by
PR/IR Manager B. E. Nixon

during a luncheon at the Olde
Molen on April 27, 1967.
The teachers who completed
the chemistry course and their
schools are: P. F. Hoogestee-
ger, of Abraham de Veer
School who also teaches part-
time at Colegio Arubano; J.
W. Klein of John Wesley Col-
lege; P. G. J. van Grinsven,.
A. Rosenstand, and G. Ter
Hennepe of Kennedy School;
Sister Cecilia and Th. M. Vaee-
sen of St. Antonius College;
H. van Ree and Mrs. G. van
Ree of Juliana School; Frere
Huysmans, of La Salle College,
and S. Punt of Abraham de
Veer School.


L. Werleman

For the 13th consecutive
year, Lago will offer on-the-
job summer training to college
students. The program runs
from June 19 to August 11,
Applications must be turn-
ed in before May 26. Applica-
tion forms are now available
at the Training Division.
The program is open to
children of Aruba residents
who are enrolled at an accre-
dited college. They must have
successfully completed at least
one year of college.
Applications will be handled
on a first-come, first-served
basis depending on available
job training openings.
Because of the limited op-
portunities, enrollment prefer-
ence will be given to Aruban
students to the extent pos-
A student grant-in-aid of
Fls. 225 per four-week period
will be provided.
