The Volta Regional Branch of the Ghana National Association of Teachers Ladies Society (GNAT-LAS), has held its fourth Quadrennial roundtable conference in Ho with a call on female teachers to upgrade themselves by pursuing further studies to boost their profession.

They have also been urged to strive to become achievers in society to serve as role models to shape the future pupils and students, of especially girls in their schools and society.

Dr Hellen Afeavor, headmistress of Likpe SHS and guest speaker at the conference, who made the call noted that these tendencies will in the long run propel the country’s educational system, adding it will also empower women to effectively contribute to nation building.

Dr Afeavor advocated more female participation in the country’s political system to help formulate laws that will promote the rights of women.

She also urged the Ghana Education Service to reintroduce adult education to provide formal and non-formal education to illiterates and drop-outs.

That, she noted would turn them into productive citizens who would contribute to nation building.

Abdul Aziz, Assistant Regional GNAT Secretary, commended members for their dedication and commitment towards the improvement of education in the country.

He urged them to sustain efforts geared towards developing their society and GNAT in subsequent years.

Nana Yaa Owiafe, Volta Regional Coordinator of GNAT-LAS, for her part, noted that her outfit is committed towards rolling out pragmatic programmes to enhance the welfare of its members in the region.

The event brought together coordinators of GNAT-LAS from the 14 districts of GNAT in the region.

It provided them the platform to take stock and review activities of the Society over the past few years and to rollout strategic measures to improve upon their activities.

It had the theme, “Transforming Society through Education- the Contribution of Women Achievers in the Attainment of Agenda 2030”.
