Three of Grenada’s top National Swimmers Delron Felix, Kerry Ollivierre and Kimberley Ince leave the island today 15 July 2019 to participate in the 18th FINA World Swimming Championship from 21 – 28 July 2019 in Gwangju, South Korea.

The swimmers will be accompanied by Coach Nataly Regis Sihera and GASA’s Secretary Reyan Neckles who will also serve as Team Manager.

Each swimmer will be competing in 2 events. Felix will compete in the 50-metre backstroke and 100-metre freestyle; Ollivierre in the 50-metre butterfly and 50-metre freestyle while Ince, the lone female, will compete in the 50-metre and 100-metre backstroke. Grenada is optimistic that the team, which has consistently performed well at several regional meets, will put on another stellar performance. Over 194 federations will be participating at the championships from the 7 continents.

All 3 swimmers competing at the FINA Worlds are all hoping to make the Olympic qualifying times in their respective events as they seek to attain a spot for the 2020 Olympics scheduled for Tokyo.

The Grenada Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) extends best wishes to all our swimmers and look forward to their continued high level of performance.

TAMCC release to students | NOW Grenada

Published

By

Please be assured that during this very difficult time the college is continuously assessing and reassessing its position as it relates to the submission of SBAs and the impending administration of final exams for both the 9-week and 15-week semesters.

We want you to know that the health and welfare of our college community remain our top priority as we grapple with the impact Covid-19 coronavirus is creating around the world and in our local community. We are also cognisant of the government’s decision to declare a State of Emergency for our tri-island state. It is with this in mind I wish to inform you of some new developments:

  • That you are expected to attend classes virtually/remotely and in accordance with the guidelines given by your lecturers, because we are currently not on vacation;
  • That some of the assessments given virtually/remotely will form part of your final grade. So, there may not be in-class final exams, rather on-line exams or continuous assessments. Hence, it is important that you attend all classes scheduled virtually by your lecturers. Please take these classes seriously! The lecturers are making tremendous sacrifices to ensure you are given the syllabus;
  • That the new deadline being considered for the submission of ALL SBAs (hard and soft copies) is 22 April 2020. Therefore, science students are not required to submit SBAs in early April as was previously communicated;
  • Students who are required to submit SBAs via softcopy must continue to do so as the platform will be open until 22 April 2020;
  • It has been suggested by CXC that CAPE exams be held in June/July. You will be apprised once this is finalised.

If you are experiencing difficulties with attending classes virtually or submitting your SBAs, please contact any one of the following officials via email:

  • Your lecturer
  • Acting Registrar
  • Assistant Registrar Exam
  • IT Director

You are advised to report difficulties with the submission of SBAs before the stipulated deadline, preferably by 3 April 2020. Difficulties with the learning platforms must be reported immediately.

If you are not receiving emails from the SASPS mailing list, kindly follow the instructions below.

Send all requests to get support via email to [email protected]
