Tema, June 27, GNA –
Mr Isaac Asamoah, Training and Development Officer of Kpone Katamanso District,
has urged teachers and parents to avoid canning children as a disciplinary measure.

He said they could use
other forms of punishment which would not be injurious to the children.

Mr Asamoah gave the
advice at a day’s seminar for teachers and parents organised by SOS Children’s
Villages Ghana under its “Family Strengthening Programme”, at Mataheko in the
Ningo/Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region.

It was attended by
head teachers, members of Parent-Teacher Associations, teachers and members of
School Management Committees drawn from public basic schools in Kpone Katamanso
and Ningo/Prampram Districts.

Mr Asamoah asked
teachers to create an atmosphere, which would enable the students to approach
them whenever they were in difficulty to ensure the promotion of teaching and
learning in the schools.

Madam Mary Yawavi
Korgbor, Girls’ Education Officer of Kpone Katamanso District reminded teachers
of the law that banned canning in schools and said anyone who flouted it could
be prosecuted.

She said canning of
children could harm them and sometimes destroy their lives in future by making
them incapacitated and therefore it must be avoided.

Mr Dziedzom
Owusu-Agbe, a Project Officer of the Family Strengthening Programme of the SOS
Children’s Villages Ghana, advised parents and teachers to adopt nice ways to
draw children to their side and point to them where they have gone wrong after
disciplining them.
