The Asunafo South District Assembly has announced a scholarship package for candidates in the area, who would excel in this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Mr. Christian Oppong Frimpong, District Chief Executive (DCE), said it would pay for the full cost of the senior high school education of those who scored “six ones.”
He announced the package during an interaction with candidates, supervisors, invigilators and teachers at the Kukuom Agriculture SHS examination centre during the just ended BECE.
A total of 1,633 candidates, made up of 891 boys and 742 girls from 53 public and private basic schools, wrote the examination in the district.
Mr. Hayford Osei Kwadwo, District Director of Education who accompanied the DCE, expressed satisfaction with the way the candidates, invigilators and teachers had conducted themselves.
