The Ayawaso West Municipal Chief Executive, Mrs Sandra Owusu-Ahenkorah, has called on teachers to adopt all teaching techniques to make the school environment friendly and a memorable one for beginners.

This, she explained, would build the interest of schooling in them as they grow.

Mrs Owusu-Ahenkorah said this on Monday, when she toured some public schools in the municipality to welcome some newly enrolled pupils as part of ‘My First Day at School’ celebration.

The event, observed annually was to allay fears of newly enrolled children by making their first day at school enjoyable for them to have interest in the school.

The MCE presented educational materials and some confectionery to the pupils.

Schools visited included the Bawaleshie Presbyterian Basic School, Abelenkpe 2 Basic School, Dzorwulu Presbyterian, Mamprobi Prisons Basic School, and Legon Staff Village Basic School.

At the Bawlashie Presbyterian Basic School, Mrs Owusu-Ahenkorah presented assorted items to the newly enrolled children, and promised to regularly visit the school to monitor their progress, assuring that the assembly would do everything possible to make their basic education memorable and fruitful.

She reiterated government’s commitment to invest heavily in the youth of the country with provision of free quality education, and appealed to the pupils to take up their education seriously and also respect their parents and teachers to make their stay in school eventful.

The MCE urged parents not to hide behind the clock of poverty and deprive their wards’ education.

According to Mrs Owusu-Ahenkorah, the government had provided the opportunity for every child to be in school, and “it behoves parents to complement government’s effort to ensure that their children attained at least a senior high school certificate”.
