The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Shai Osudoku, Mr Daniel Akuffo, has urged parents and guardians to take advantage of government’s educational policies and send their children and wards to school.

That he explained was the only way their children and wards could benefit from such policies towards attaining the highest academic status in life.

Mr Akuffo gave this advice at separate durbars for parents of new entrants as part of ‘my first day at school’ celebrations in the district last week Wednesday.

The event was to ensure that the new entrants get the needed support from all stakeholders especially parents and guardians.

The DCE was accompanied by the District Director of Education Mrs. Elizabeth Awoonor-Williams and other officials of the assembly.

The education directorate distributed educational materials and goodies to the kindergarten pupils while pupils who were freshly admitted given exercise books, pens and erasers.

According to Mr. Akuffo, said the government had concluded all preparatory works for their children’s success, as such have no cause to prevent them from attending school.

The DCE, urged them to monitor the progress of the children, encourage them to be time conscious, respectful, ready to learn in order to compete with colleagues in other schools and communities.

Mr. Awooner-Williams charged the teachers to always remember that no dream is beyond any child saying “once that child is able to take advantage of the opportunity to be in school, achieving the full potential would not be a problem”.

 

Mrs. Awoonor-Williams urged community members, particularly parents to take advantage of the Basic school capitation Grant and the free Senior High School policies and ensure that their children stay in school till they complete.

She appealed to the children to shun social vices and concentrate on their education so as to be role models in their community.
