Students Advised To Work Towards Set Goals

Professor Jane Naana Opoku-AgyemangThe Minister of Education, Prof. Naana Jane Agyemang, has advised students to have set goals in life and work very hard with the view to achieving them.

She gave the advice at the closing ceremony of the annual free vacation school for Junior High School (JHS) and Senior High School (SHS) students in Accra on Thursday.

The free vacation school, an annual community service, organised by the Ghana Muslim Academy to provide practical education support to students, especially, the underprivileged had the theme, “Providing practical support for quality education”.

The minister said making it to the top all depended on individual efforts and their believe that they could make a difference.

Prof Agyemang urged the students to study hard since greater opportunities awaited them in the future.

She urged them to refrain from pre-marital sex since they could become pregnant leading to the termination of their education.

The headmaster of the vacation school, Mr. Suleman Moro, said this year’s vacation school was significant in that it recorded the highest enrolment since 2011.

He noted that, this year, they enrolled 300 students for both JHS and SHS which indicated that parents in the deprived communities take the education of their children serious.

He appealed to the Ghana Education Service to support the school by providing the needed textbooks and computers to assist the deprived children.
