Bibiani (W/N), Sept. 11, GNA – Mr Alfred
Amoah, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai, has
distributed uniforms to six schools within the Bibiani Municipality during a
visit to monitor enrolment of pupils on My-first-day-at-school.
The visit took the MCE, the Municipal
Director of Education, Madam Emefa Boateng, and some officials of the Ghana
Education Service to schools including Lineso M/A Basic, Abokyikrom Primary,
Anglican Basic School, Bassenegle D/A Basic and Bibiani Community Primaries
The team welcomed the Kindergarten and
primary one pupils and encouraged them to “feel at home and learn.’’
The pupils were refreshed with assorted
drinks and biscuits and presented with learning materials including exercise
books, pencils, sharpeners and erasers.
Mr Amoah commended the Government for
policies such as the Free Senior High School (SHS), School Feeding Programme,
Capitation grant, Free School Uniforms, New Curriculum for Basic school and
infrastructure development to promote education.
He advised the pupils to learn hard to enjoy
the Free SHS after basic school adding; “I’m optimistic that many of you will
become members of Parliament, MCEs, lawyers, doctors, nurses, teachers,
engineers, journalists and bankers in the future.”
Madam Boateng, on her part, said most
schools were suffering from infrastructure deficit within the Municipality,
which had affected enrollment.
She, therefore, said it was heartwarming
that the Municipal Assembly had expressed readiness to tackle the
infrastructure problems to enhance enrollment.
Mrs Boateng cautioned parents and guardians
to refrain from using their children on the farm during school hours so as to
guarantee them a brighter future.
Mr Frank Adjei Mensah, Head Teacher of
Community Primary ‘A’, thanked the MCE for the items, particularly the school
uniforms, which would lessen the burden on parents.
