By an enactment of one of his poems, “The Master Brewer”, Prof. Wosornu, who is also a poet, asked students to make a concentrated effort to take control of their lives, because their future depended on them, after their teachers and parents had played their role in ensuring their bright future.
He made the call at a maiden Students Representative Council (SRC) week celebration of Dabala Senior Technical School (DASTECH) in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region on Saturday.
Prof. Wosornu, who is columnist for The Ghanaian Times, reminded students that their actions and inactions would yield corresponding results, which they would be compelled to embrace, and urged them to channel their thoughts and actions towards productive and positive outlook.
He asked students to take their studies seriously to be able to acquire knowledge and skills needed for development.
The South Tongu District Director of Education, Mrs. Angelica Attakey, urged students to take advantage of opportunities being offered by government, individuals and organisations and realise their educational aspirations, to become responsible and meaningful adults to the nation.
She gave the assurance that her outfit would help DASTECH to build a boys’ dormitory, as requested by the students, to enhance academic performance.
The headmaster of the school, Mr. Simon Aklomasa-Conutsey, advised students to use their time judiciously in school.
Patron of the SRC William Kwasi Dzikunoo, cautioned students against indiscipline, laziness and absenteeism, and rather focus on their studies so that they could pass their examinations.
The local literary group and DASTECH Cultural Troupe, spiced the occasion with interesting poetry recitals and performances, to crown the week.
