Laudia Sawer, GNA

Tema, July 23, GNA – Ghana
Education Service (GES) professional teachers in the Katamanso circuit of the
Kpone-Katamanso District have held their maiden capacity building workshop.

The workshop held on
the theme: “Redefining the destiny of today’s child”, was aimed at
enhancing the teachers’ knowledge on modern teaching techniques.

The circuit had 83
teachers made up of 55 females and 28 males teaching at eight public schools.

Mr Jonathan Okunor,
GES Circuit Supervisor for Katamanso, commended teachers in the area for doing
their best to provide quality education to students despite the.many challenges
they faced.

Mr Okunor said the
workshop was organized to provide additional modern training which would equip
them to effectively and efficiently discharge their duties.

He added that such
workshops were a necessity as teaching technologies and methods kept changing
over the years.

He appealed to the
Kpone-Katamanso District through the Education Directorate to assist schools in
the District to overcome their numerous challenges.

The challenges, he
said, included overcrowded classrooms, inadequate infrastructure, lack of
textbooks, encroachment on school lands and non-availability of teacher’s
residential accommodation.

Mrs Mabel Botokro, GES
Kpone-Katamanso District Education Directorate’s Human Resource Manager,
encouraged teachers to use available opportunities to upgrade themselves
instead of waiting for the GES to organize training for them.

“The world is
transforming and teachers must be in tune with it, they must be
proactive”, he stated.

Mrs Botokro reminded
teachers that their students were advanced in technology, therefore, they could
not afford to be comfortable with the old methods of teaching and learning.

She further urged them
to be committed to their profession as the future of the Ghanaian child was in
the hands of teachers.

The workshop was also
used to provide free medical examination for the teachers.
