Ricketts Motivates Pupils Ahead Of BECE

As part of efforts to motivate and boost the morale of Basic School Candidates in the Cape Coast South Constituencyahead of their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) which begins next month, the Member of Parliament for the area, Mr. Kweku Ricketts Hagan has been presenting mathematical set to pupils.

The mathematical set presentation which began on Thursday is being done on behalf of Mr. Ricketts by his constituency chairman, Mr. Mohammed Muftao, Mr Theodore Yanka, secretary, Kojo King, deputy constituency communications officer, and Mr. Abaka Ishmael, coordinator of projects and communications for the MP in the Constituency.

The gesture according to Mr. Abaka Ishmael is to enable the team reach out to the pupils and explain to them the kinds of ideas and good plans the MP, Mr. Ricketts Hagan has for education.

“Some time people from poor homes or those who think that their parents cannot help them continue their education after basic school, decide not to take the BECE Examination seriously because they believe that will be the end of their education ladder” Mr. Abaka Emphasized.

He continued “we are therefore taking advantage of this presentation to tell them that there is a way they can be supported if only they pass well. The MP uses part of his share of the common fund to help brilliant but needy students who excel in their BECE”

Mr. Abaka stressed that the Member of Parliament would not hesitate to offer scholarship to any student who performs creditably well in the BECE and therefore appealed to the pupils in all the schools he visited to take advantage of the scholarship package from the MP and study hard.

There are 53 public and private basic schools in the Cape Coast South Constituency and a total of 1,782 candidates have been registered by the schools for the Basic Education Certificate Examination.

So far, 8 schools have received their shares of the mathematical set presentation.

They include; Ekon A and B Basic School, Joy Preparatory A and B School and Redemption Baptist JHS School.

The rest are Aboom A.M.E Zion School A and D and ST. Nicholas Anglican JHS at Adisadel.

At the St. Nicholas Junior High School, which was the last school the team visitedon Friday; Mr. Abaka told the student that, education is the most valuable property their parents can give them and therefore advised them not to engage in any activity that can rein their lives in the near future.

“Education is very important and the foundation begins at where you are today. We all passed through the same system to get to where we are so please don’t joke with the BECE. Build strong foundation for your education today so that you can be successful tomorrow.” He told the pupils.

Constituency Secretary, Mr. Theodore Yanka on his part, appealed to the pupils to keep faith with God saying, “the Lord who started it all with you, will bring you to an expected end.”

The presentation is expected to be completed before the commencement of the exams.
