Building More Community Day Schools Is Commendable – Educationist

Dr. Nana Kwaku Asiedu, the Principal of the Foso College of Education, has lauded the Government for building more Community Day Schools (CDS) towards improving the standards of education.

The schools, he said, would bridge the education infrastructural gap between the urban areas and the rural and reduce the over concentration of schools in the cities.

Dr Asiedu said this during the maiden Speech and Prize Giving Day of Gyaase Senior High School (SHS) at Assin-Bereku in the Assin North District of the Central Region.

It was on the theme: “Quality Community Secondary Education; Impact and Challenges”.

He said if the CDS were given the requisite modern teaching and learning facilities, their graduates would rub shoulders with their counterparts from the prominent well-resourced schools.

Dr Asiedu, however, said many of the community Senior High Schools were faced with several challenges such as lack of accommodation for teachers, insufficient textbooks, libraries, unmotorable roads, furniture and classrooms.

Dr Kofi Blankson, the Municipal Chief Executive for Assin Central, promised that the Assembly would donate 100 dual desks to support the School.

He urged teachers, parents and guardians to closely monitor the use of the Internet by pupils and students to prevent them from being exposed to the negative influences of the information tool.

Mrs. Mary Williams, the Headmistress of the School, said the theme was chosen to demonstrate their promise to graduate disciplined and hardworking children who would grow up into responsible adults.

She expressed her commitment towards working hard to achieve excellent results in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate of Examination to the Board and Staff of the School.

She enumerated some of the challenges of the School as inadequate dormitories and teachers’ accommodation; lack of a library, a modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) centre and Science laboratory and urged the Ministry of Education to assist them.

Mrs Williams expressed concern about the huge unpaid fees, which she said, had hit GHȼ60,000.00, and appealed to defaulting parents to quickly settle their debts.

The students entertained the audience with displays in cultural drumming and dancing, as well as poetry recitals.

Prizes and certificates were presented to deserving students
