Students urged to develop a holistic approach to education

Anyinam (E/R), July
22, GNA – Students have been urged to develop a holistic approach to education
by being honest, virtuous and dedicated to their studies.

They should also
endeavor to resist corruption in the form of cheating during examinations,
which is a canker eating into the fabric of society.

Mr Michael Kwaku Adae,
the Proprietor of Adae Yeboa Preparatory School, said this in an address during
a students’ durbar at Anyinam in the Eastern Region. 

The programme was part
of the school’s strategic plan to encourage the youth to become aware of their
civic responsibilities and be assertive.

He said students
should endeavour to cultivate the habit of learning to be patriotic citizens so
as to uphold and defend the good name of the country.

The proprietor urged
them to avoid cheating and take their studies seriously to enable them to
achieve good results.

Mr. Adae said
proprietors of private schools found it difficult to run their institutions to
complement government’s efforts to provide quality teaching and learning.

“However, we try our
best to sustain our businesses since education brings progress and
development,” he said, and appealed to government to assist.

Mr Adae said the
school, established in September, 2007 with 12 children from Kindergarten to
Primary One, had now expanded to Junior High School Three with 430 pupils.

He said the school
lacked books and computers to feed the school library and computer laboratory
respectively adding that it also needed a school bus to transport the children
to school from the catchment areas including Adasewase, Enyiresi, Akyem
Sekyere, Moseaso and Asaman Tanfoe.

He appealed to the
VALCO Fund to provide the school with a bus and called on the Ministry of
Education to supply text books to private schools.
