Sonrise Christian Int’l JHS holds 6th graduation

The Sonrise Christian International Junior High School (JHS) in Ho on Saturday held its 6th Graduation Ceremony with a call on parents to spend more time helping their children with their school assignments.  

The Technical and Vocational Education Division Coordinator of the Ho Municipal Directorate of Education, Miss Felicia Nuworklo, who made the call, said that parents are the first teachers of children and, therefore, have a greater role in shaping their character.  

She pointed out that a balance between education at home and school formed the student’s actual learning process.  

Miss Nuworklo said that parental encouragement had played a crucial role in the performances of students, adding that children’s learning scale was highly related to how they were treated at home.  

For that matter, she insisted that it was important for parents to be role models of their children and also to create  favourable learning atmosphere at home.  

Miss Nuworklo also entreated parents not to over-burden their children with household tasks, but monitor them in their activities and criticise them constructively.  

 Mr Samuel K. Dzamesi, the proprietor of the school, said that due to COVID-19, the Sonrise Christian International JHS recorded low admissions.  

He said that the school which took off in 1990 on a humble note with 16 children now had a total enrolment for 589, made up of 293 boys and 296 girls.  

Mr Dzamesi said that the school could boast of a well-equipped science laboratory, a fully air-conditioned computer laboratory and modern washrooms.  

The proprietor said the school had recently provided its own mechanised borehole; as such the pupils no longer experienced water shortage.  

On achievements of the JHS, Mr Dzamesi said that Sonrise had over the years maintained a 100 per cent record in the Basic Certificate Education Examination, “and we are confident this trend will continue.”  

He said that two of the pupils from the school took part in this year’s Spelling Bee contest and performed creditably to qualify for the international stage of the competition, in Dubai, where one of them won bronze medal.  

Mr Miracle Attachey, a legal practitioner, and product of the school urged the students to study diligently towards a bright future.  

“That means waking up early, being punctual at school and also being respectful to your parents and teachers,” he said.  

Prizes were awarded to deserving students, after which the new GH₵ 17,000 school infrastructure was inaugurated.
