Accra July 5, GNA – Mrs Samira Bawumia, wife
of the Vice President has paid a working visit to a model school in China with
a view to replicating their successes in Ghana.

The visit, which took place on the sidelines
of the four-day official state visit by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu
Bawumia, went to the Beijing Jingyuan Primary School, one of the most
prestigious schools in Beijing, the capital of China.

The school, which takes care of grooming the
next generation of responsible citizens and world leaders, is focused not only
on teaching the tradition and history of the Chinese people, but also imbibe in
the younger generation fundamental principles of living a happy and fulfilled
life.

Among other accolades, the kindergarten is
widely acknowledged as one of the nation’s finest and the primary school
students have won the first prize for synthesis ability in Shjingshan District
for many years, while the junior middle school students have won first place in
the Entrance Examination to high school for six years.

The students have since gone on to famous
universities.

After lengthy interactions between the staff
of the school and a guided tour of the facilities, Mrs Samira Bawumia was
invited to try her hands on Chinese calligraphy and she drew the first two
letters in the spelling of China, C and H in Chinese calligraphy to a loud
applause.

She was later presented with a traditional
Chinese calligraphy scroll describing Ghana as the Golden Beach.

The scroll recounted the old friendship
between Ghana and the Chinese people and the hope of strengthening the bond.

Mrs Bawumia in a brief remark promised to pass
on the knowledge acquired to the appropriate authorities in Ghana in order to
enable the country draw lessons from the successes of the model school.
