Ho, July 30, GNA – Dr Hillar Addo, Vice
President of Academics, Leadership University College of Applied Sciences
(LUCAS) in Accra, has re-echoed the call for a practical-oriented educational
system in the country.

He said that system must produce students who
would impact positively on society, instead of only nurturing “certificate
goals.”

Dr Addo said this at the maiden graduation
ceremony of Ho International School Complex.

He said “education is producing critical
thinkers and assertive students. It is giving people knowledge, skills, values
and attitudes that human beings need to be confident and live their lives
productively.

Dr Addo said knowledge abounds in the country
and that what it lacked was the skills to become innovative, and productive and
called for the introduction of practical learning in preschools to help pupils
and students identify their talents and strength.

He said it was unfortunate that students had
certificates but could not do much and asked that practical training be
encouraged and parents advised to support skill training programmes.

Madam Commend Enyam Akpeloo, Proprietress of
Ho International School Complex, said the School, established in 2014, has a
blended curriculum of international and local course structures laced with
field trips, creative workshops, among other practical activities to position
pupils strategically within an “evolving” educational system.

Madam Akpeloo said pupils in the School were
being trained to become problem solvers even before they enrolled in to senior
high school.
