and other infrastructure and in fact has since embarked on a new road project
with China namely the southern coastal highway improvement project in addition
only this week in Parliament the Prime Minister review that China has interests
in investing in the key – economic zone so we desperately run from one

incompetent tribalist governments Mattel had this to

Catherine High and Excelsior will meet in the deciding game of this season’s is
a Walker Cup knockout competition after scoring contrasting victories in
Thursday’s semi finals at the ‘i’m east here Stevie J is a Spencer
Darlington in TV Jay’s game of the days in Catherine hi upset nine time former
champions sent to George’s College courtesy of a 5-4 penalty shootout win
st. George’s College started out on the front foot and proceeded to dictate the
tempo in the first half where San Catherine high looked a subdued in most
areas st. George’s took up the ascendancy when captain Nathaniel
Campbell served up a nice delivery for top marksman shantamma Taylor the slot
home quite easily in the 40th minute st GC began the second half in a similar
mood to the first as they searched for some added insurance however st.
Catherine high fought their way back into contention and were rewarded on six
to four minutes when they’re sick on the leading scorer this season Siobhan Cole
rifled home from close range regulation time and even the five minutes which
were added for stoppages ended in a one all deadlock and so the dreaded penalty
kicks were called in to play center ojas College missed their third penalty who
Allison Catherine were perfect from the spot I think we start the game very well
but I’m a fan I take a to triode step back after I first 20 minutes analogous
at our plea you know we talked about it at length in debris and asked them to
steer close and and be very patient you know you know you know approach and when
the opportunity comes and we must have to take it and you know it we’re going
to find to the pin at the shootout and it’s very very confident of the tough
device this is something that I’m you know we we work on a whole lot and not
you can see to the end you can see to do or they look kicking those penalty I
think this is our 19th game and we’ve only lost one game junior on a play that
was the same hundred technical when we lost 3-1 we lost on penalties here and
we lost on penalties the Cornwall College so yeah you’re disappointed
every time you lose you’re disappointed every time the season ends and and you
don’t win anything but I I can’t give these kids a hard time I think they
worked hard I think they put out your best which is what I asked I asked for
them to have fun playing schoolboy football and to leave everything on the
pack and I think they did Spencer Darlington TVJ sports and that’s the

  1. Oh my God that's not appropriate for a teacher to behave like that maybe she was having a bad day and even that you don't show it in your classroom

  2. Andrew they have invested in good governance and stamp out corruption which your government never does including pnp. U guys rather pocket the country’s money 🙄

  3. I guess now she’s out of a job 🤦🏾‍♀️.. these kids can really piss you off but as an adult and a teacher at that she should have acted like a professional… This is sooo embarrassing 🤦🏾‍♀️

  4. The example of dealing with conflict in this country in a non aggressive manner is lost!!! What is wrong with Jamaica can be fixed with what is right with Jamaica!!! That being said everything cannot be dismissed as being stressed.

  5. While she is unprofessional here….we dnt know the full case. Some of these kids not easy, if you show any weakness they will take advantage. A lot of teachers are getting attacked. I can see why she is on the defence, but still unprofessional.

  6. It is one thing when they show Jamaica to the world the slums and think all Jamaicans live that way , it is quite another when they interview the average Jamaican, and they are in the patois and think all Jamaicans speak that way . I am from a Jamaican background , and the only speak that way amongst family and friends , or when you have a battleax for female parent , who for one reason or the other goes off on one , and we say they are going native . We had many Jamaicans who stupidly said that we don't sound Jamaican , or because we lived in England . Has nothing to do with it . We were brought up to speak the proper English , the correct and grammatically correct way . To make Patois the official language is beyond one of the most ridiculous , and insane things I have ever heard . How in the Sam Hill will that enable learning English easier . What complete rubbish . Learn the proper English , and continue to make the ONLY English to be taught in schools . Years ago we knew someone who said that it should be the national language . So wait now when you go out in the world , and you only spoke Patois , how in the world will that help you to communicate . This garbage should not even be up for debate by any means .

  7. The prime minister must remember that people vote for them ,is not the government vote for the people them ,PNP and JLP doesn't make zero

  8. these set of children now a days are beyond rotten i can totally understand what teachers going through now a days but the teacher should never get baited to there level

  9. Thank you Television Jamaica for the upload. As for my thoughts on the Jamaica language I disagree with the Prime Minister. I believe if a country has a strong leader the country will flourish. PNP and the JLP a di same thing, mi nah pick nuh side.

  10. Regardless of what happened prior to this if he was out of line he should have been sent out to the principal or dean. There’s no excuse for her response

  11. Mr prime minister st.Lucia first language is not English but dey native tounge If I light skin negroes want acceptability from the white man go to dem country nah leave the local tounge be wat it is n stop manipulating poor ppl wit low education

  12. Reading some of the comments,it should not suprise anyone of her behavior,just listened to how she is speaking,no formal English,but the local village language,other wise called patwa, teacher back then use to speak English,to the point when they speak patwa,they sound so strange,well I guess those were the days will ever come back again,

  13. It not easy being a teacher, children these days don't have no respect. She was under some stress, they should check her record before think to fired her….

  14. She shouldn't say she we Murder him, that part wrong, but a so you have to deal with these now a days children, u gwan like you soft, and a you them a murder,

  15. The teacher was wrong but the student was equally wrong listen to student fuelling the issue. The teacher should be setting an example, this sort of behaviour by the teacher must be looked into. The student should not be speaking back to the teacher. The teacher should ask the question the pupil should answer, not talking back to teacher. These pupils they do not seems to understand that they are in school to learn and get themselves an education to better themselves. There needs to a proper study into schools on teacher / students interactions.

  16. A bit sad, but, as in many countries (UK where I am) this type of situation will pop up from time to time. I have had my fair share playing music and teaching (mainly music) over the years. Only this week,in the uk a little white girl. But this was a special school ( SEN, Special Educational Needs). So then teacher stressed out but if you find you are having to talk to students in this manner too often, you might want to consider taking a break from the profession at least for a while.

  17. This Teacher probably suffering from stress or have some home issues. It's not easy but she needs training. Maybe if it was another student he would have been more confrontational and it would have ended in physical violence. I dnt know…trying to see all sides.

  18. Jamaica is being left behind because of corruption and crime, and if we cannot proficiently speak English…then it's the ministry of education's fault. Do something about that and stop with your damn boastful slave talk.

  19. Jamaica will not acknowledge pawah as our main language not until an investor come in and say they want to invest in our language before they move to make it recognized developed and commercialize. By this point we would have already sell our birth rights… smh

  20. Pussyclaat Jamaica so bad that ppl a thief the street lights?? that is for dem better good.😂😂 that actually help the country to be developed also ok

  21. The teacher is not behaving like a teacher . I totally agree with the prime minister ENGLISH is what the world communicates with so that's what we should teach . Regarding the PSOJ head , Jamaica has spent a lot on poor communities , with nothing to show for it . Good , decent housing was developed , places like Arnett gardens , Tivoli gardens , Seaview gardens and the people turned them into ghettos . Build a palace put a pig into it and it will become a pigsty .
