The event, held in the various districts across the country, is meant to welcome basic school pupils who are entering school for the first time to undergo formal education.
She encouraged the pupils to learn well and be obedient to their teachers and parents, and also urged the teachers to effectively support the children to overcome learning challenges and achieve academic excellence.
Mr. Maxwell Gbakah, Ho Municipal Director of Education, was optimistic that the ceremony would help to build the confidence and self esteem of the new entrants, and for them to develop the zeal for school.
He called teachers to collaborate with parents to improve the school enrolment and retention by embarking on house-to-house outreach so that more children out of school, could be enrolled to benefit from formal education.
