THE headmistress of Adabraka Presby School, Ms Wennifred Aboagye, has called on parents to take keen interest in school activities that are open to parents especially ‘Open Days’, to find out the progress of their wards.
She said, “the upbringing of the children should not be left on the shoulders of the teachers alone but should be complementary.”
Ms Aboagye made the call at the graduation ceremony of the final year Junior High School students of the Adabraka Presby School.
She expressed worry about the rampant cases of theft in the school, adding that, even though the PTA had employed a watchman, it still inadequate because the compound is so large.
She therefore appealed to parents, philanthropists, organisations and the old student association to come to the aid of the school and help solve the problem.
Rev. Mrs Victoria Kai Wagoe, the Regional Manager of the Presbyterian Education Unit, said education is the greatest investment in the human being and a God-given strategy to promote spirituality and also address illiteracy, poverty and backwardness.
She explained that the Presbyterian Church of Ghana sees, education as both a social and a religious obligation.
“Many disciplined citizens who distinguished themselves in the nation were known to have profited from Presbyterian education,” she noted.
The church, she said, had set itself to improve the quality of teaching and learning through supervision and support.
Rev. Wagoe advised teachers to exhibit virtues that can be emulated by the students especially at this time when the entire nation is engulfed with so much indiscipline.
She congratulated the graduands and urged them to carry on the Presbyterian training they had acquired to the next stage of their academic persuit.
