CLEMENT HOWELL HIGH SCHOOL RECOGNIZES AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH - AUTISM: IT’S NOT A DISABILITY, IT’S A DIFFERENT ABILITY

CLEMENT HOWELL HIGH SCHOOL RECOGNIZES AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

AUTISM: IT’S NOT A DISABILITY, IT’S A DIFFERENT ABILITY

In recognition of Autism Awareness Month, Clement Howell High School hosted a group of students from the Ashley Learning Centre.  The school works closely with the Centre where some of our teachers visit and assist with teaching of the students, especially Music.  The Tourism Club students are volunteers at the Centre working with the students on a regular basis and providing some basic items towards preparation of breakfast, snacks and lunch.

The students and teachers made a courtesy call on the Principal and then they received a tour of the school.  The students welcomed the group and some participated in the tour with them.  The group of students who came enjoyed interacting with the students from Clement Howell and they were excited to be in ‘regular school’.

They met other teachers in the staff rooms, toured the labs and ended with a session at the Music room. The students were able to play instruments and for those who are already knowledgeable of playing the instruments, they showed their skills. 

The teachers wore T-shirts to celebrate the initiative. They also organized a small fundraising effort in order to make a contribution to the Centre on behalf of the school.  The school will continue to support the Centre.

PUBLIC NOTICE - ELECTRICIAN LICENSE

ELECTRICIAN LICENSE

The Ministry of Infrastructure, Housing and Planning issues this final notice to all electrical practitioners, property owners and businesses. 

Approved electrical license applicants are required to pay the licensing fee for 2018 before May 15, 2018.  The processing of payments can be done at the Planning Department Offices in Grand Turk and Providenciales.

The Planning Department Office on Providenciales is located in Emily House, Leeward Highway, Providenciales and the office in Grand Turk is currently located in the Government Compound, on Pond Street.

The Electricity (Amendment) Ordinance 2015 which came into effect on March 1, 2016 states that, “no person shall carry out electrical work of any nature unless he holds a license issued by the Board authorizing him to do so and is licensed in one of the following categories;”

  1. Electrical Engineer
  2. Master Electrician
  3. Journeyman
  4. Wireman
  5. Linesman.
  6. Apprentice or
  7. Engineer-in-training

While the onus is on electrical practitioners to complete the licensing process, property owners and businesses have a responsibility to ensure they engage and use only electricians and electrical practitioners who are licensed and who can provide proof of such license to perform electrical work in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Electrical works conducted by unlicensed individuals will not be approved by the electrical inspector and such persons performing electrical works without a license, contravene the provisions of Section 60T (b) of the Electricity (Amendment) Ordinance 2015. Any person who carries out any electrical work, electrical installation or electrical wiring without a license issued by the Board commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine of $5,000 or to a term of imprisonment of six months, or to both such fine and imprisonment

The Ministry anticipates the full cooperation of all electrical practitioners, property owners and members of the public.
