The Headmaster encouraged parents to enroll their children into the school to receive the “best of education”.
Reverend Kofi Amnel Mensah, delivering a sermon at the event, admonished parents to take proper care of their children.
Making reference to Luke 2:7 in the Bible, he reminded parents and guardians of the responsibilities to their children.

“We must protect our children, support them and help them walk in their God-ordained destinies,” he said.
