Koforidua, Aug. 14, GNA – Dr. Matthew Opoku-
Prempeh, Minister of Education, has entreated directors of education, heads of
institutions and teachers to ensure that Physical Education (P.E), is given the
needed attention in the curriculum.

He said, the freedom to develop physically,
intellectually and moral power through physical education and sports must be
guaranteed both within the education system and social life.

This was contained in an address read on his
behalf, by the Eastern Regional Director of Education, Ms. Monica Ankrah at the
official opening of the 33rd National Basic Schools Sports festival, being held
at the Koforidua Senior High Technical School (K.S.H.T.S) at Koforidua.

Dr Opoku-Prempeh said, if physical education
was not effectively thought and practiced in schools, talents would not be
identified for future sporting events.

Dr Opoku- Prempeh said the ministry would
continue to support quality education for the total development and progress of
the youth in the country.

He said, he was hopeful that the festival
would provide the exposure and experience that the youth needed to help build a
stronger and healthy nation.

The nine days sporting festival would see the
young sportsmen and women compete in athletes, volleyball, table tennis,
football, handball, netball and hockey.
