30 teachers honoured at Kpone-Katamanto

A total of 30 teachers and educational workers in the Kpone-Katamanso municipality have been honoured for distinguished services.

The selected personalities were given prizes such as double door refrigerators, chest freezers, gas cookers and certificates.

The programme dubbed the ‘Municipal Teacher Prize’ for 2015, 2016 and 2017 was organised by the Kpone-Katamanso Municipal Assembly(KKMA) in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service.

It was under the theme, ‘The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher, the role of stakeholders.’

In an address the Chief Executive of KKMA, Mr Solomon T. Appiah, acknowledged teachers for the roles they played in inspiring students to realise their potential in life.

He called on stakeholders to support the government to create a conducive environment for teaching and learning in the area.

Mr Appiah enumerated some development projects the assembly had undertaken to improve education in the area, including the construction of a six-unit two-storey classroom block for Kubekro Basic School and the three-unit two-storey Junior High School block for Kpone Methodist School.

The former District Director of Education in KKMA, Mrs Rose Adorbor, appealed to the government to consider a scheme to motivate teachers who accept postings to deprived communities like Kpoete, Nanoman and Okushibri.

The District Director of Education in KKMA, Mr Dickson Delanyo, said the awards were to recognise and pat the shoulders of teachers who distinguished themselves for the period.

He called on those who did not win awards to continue to do their best in the coming years.
