Tandan Assemblyman awards brilliant pupils

Tandan (W/R), Aug. 5, GNA – Mr Charles Kwesi,
the Assemblyman for Tandan, in the Ellembelle District, has awarded brilliant
pupils of the Tandan Catholic Primary School for their mark of excellence in
the third third examinations.

The gesture formed part of his commitment to
inspire pupils to take their education seriously in a bid to have a secured
future in life.

Mr Kwesi presented the awards to the pupils
during a durbar, which also coincided with the school’s Our Day ceremony to
mark the end of the 2016/2017 academic year. 

Most of the pupils from primary one to six
received awards ranging from exercise books, pens, pencils, rulers, crayons, as
well as cash prizes.

Mr Kwesi used the occasion to remind the
pupils that education was the key to every nation’s development.

He assured the teachers, parents, the chief of
the town and the pupils that the gesture would be a regular affair throughout
his four-year-term mandate.

He appealed to stakeholders in education to
come on board since education was a shared responsibility and to appeal to the
government and NGOs to come to the aid of the Tandan Catholic primary school
with some facilities especially an ICT laboratory.

Mr Kwesi said since he assumed office as the
Assemblyman in 2015, he has been organising quizzes for both primary and the
junior high schools.

He commended Mr Emmanuel Armah Kofi-Buah, the
Member of Parliament for Ellembelle, for the support he has been giving to
schools in the Ellembelle District.

Mr Eric Moha who represented the Chief of the
area expressed appreciation to the Assemblyman for the gesture.

Mr Francis Asuah Ackah, the Chairman of the
Parents, Teacher Association (PTA), applauded the Assemblyman for the love and
care he has shown to the school and encouraged other Assembly members to do so.

On behalf of the pupils, Millicent Dowase who
was adjudged the best pupil in the school thanked the Assemblyman for the award
given to them.

She said the awards would motivate them to
learn hard and become great leaders in this country.

“My colleague pupils should learn from us
and take their studies seriously, let us learn hard and become great leaders in
future,” she said.
