Give Children Good Education – Parents ToldMADAM BIBIANA Irene Bangpuoro has entreated parents to do all in their capacity to give their children good education to enable them overcome challenges that they might face in their journey through life.
Biabiana Bangupuoro, the Education Committee Chairperson of St Kizito Cluster of Schools, Nima, made the call during the school’s second speech and prize giving day ceremony last Tuesday at the school premises in Nima. It was themed: “Advancement Towards Meaningful Catholic Education At The Basic Level.”
She described good education as a holistic education that empowers the child spiritually, mentally, psychologically and physically to be focused in life and excel in any endeavour that he or she found himself or herself.
She said the attempt to belittle education as not important should be discarded with impunity. She admonished children not to accept such tales but take their education seriously, work hard at school to become knowledgeable and successful in life.
“Learn hard to become good citizens and blessing to Ghana and the society at large.”
On her part, the headmistress of the primary department of the St Kizito Cluster of Schools, Teresa Kangberee had disclosed that the school, the first in the Nima community had since its inception in 1952 churned out many great men and women who are now occupying important positions both in Ghana and abroad.
She however lamented that in spite of the achievements, the school was grappling with the problem of negative peer pressure and general indiscipline; some of the major challenges the school faces. This she attributed to broken homes and single parenthood.
“Other challenges are lack of learning materials, which some parents do not provide due to economic hardship or general lack of commitment to the education of their wards.
“It is sad to note that some of the pupils come to school on empty stomach while others also, on their own, fend for themselves and their education.”
She said as a remedy, the school has been offering counseling to the children to help them overcome the effects of such situations.
She appealed to parents to take more interest in the affairs of their children.
The headmistress commended all who had contributed to get the institution to its current enviable standard.
Rev Father Raymond Osei-Tutu, the local manager of the school and his assistant Rev Father Michael, the Executives of PTA, parents and other dignitaries were present at the function.
Head teachers; past and present, teachers, deserving pupils and the security man were awarded.
