Problem solving modules are needed in basic schools – Principal

Accra, Aug. 10, GNA –
Mrs Joan Addison, the Principal of the God’s Grace International School, has
called for new enhanced teaching models that would expose school children to
problem solving activities.

She said it is
important for government to come out with early teaching of skills acquisition,
entrepreneurship and some collaborative activities among the children in
schools for them to appreciate the meaning of self-worth and patriotism.

She said this would
help the children to overcome the challenges of their time and this is what
quality education is all about.

Mrs Addison made the
call at the graduation and the 30th anniversary celebration of the school at
Tesano in Accra.

The event was held
under the theme: “Quality Education, meeting the Challenges of our time and
beyond.”

The occasion saw 57
students graduating from Junior High School to Senior High School while 62
Montessori graduated to primary one.

The Principal said the
school is redesigning its curriculum to include the values of skills training
in order to put the children on the right path of transformation and quality
education at the early age so that they would be become trail-blazers wherever
they may find themselves.

Mr Patrick Boamah, the
Member of Parliament for Okaikoi Central, the guest speaker, said education is
the bedrock of any nation and urged parents and guardians not to fail in the
investment of their children’s schooling.

He called on parents
to play their expected roles by ensuring that children attend school regularly
and are provided with their basic learning needs.

Mr Boamah urged the
students to use their time profitably as they go further in education and avoid
being lured by social media and telenovelas, but listen to the instructions by
their teachers and parents.

Mr Mohammed Adjei
Sowah, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and the Chairman of the occasion, said
education is the best form of social security for children and urged parents to
continue investing in it.

He called on the
public to be environmentally conscious and help to clean the filth in Accra,
adding that good sanitation is a shared responsibility.

Prizes were awarded to
deserving students and staff of the school.
