Parents urged to prioritize their wards education

Effiduase (Ash) Parents have been urged to prioritize the education of their children by providing them with their needs and ensuring that they are always in school.

Mr Frank Boakye Agyen, former Member of Parliament (MP) for Effiduase/Asokore Constituency, who made the call, said parents needed to play their roles effectively to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) four, which focused on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

He was speaking at a durbar to climax the centenary anniversary celebration of the Effiduase Presbyterian Primary school in the Sekyere East District.

Mr Agyen, who is an alumnus of the school, pointed out that, the education of every Ghanaian child was the responsibility of all stakeholders, including parents, teachers and community members since government alone could not shoulder and called for the support of all and sundry.

He commended the teachers for their hard work and dedication which had helped sustain the school over the years, in-spite of the numerous challenges.

Mr Agyen appealed to the pupils to concentrate on their education and study hard to pass their examinations to be able to enjoy the free senior high school.

Mr Anthony Boateng, Deputy Director General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), pledged to facilitate the necessary processes to help commence the reconstruction of the abandoned GETFUND 3-Unit Classroom project of the school.

Mr Sampson Nyame, Head teacher of the School, said one of the major challenges facing the school was lack of toilet facilities and appealed to old students, philanthropic organizations and individuals to come to the aid of the school to construct modern toilet facilities for the pupils.

Reverend Dr Daniel Osei Bediako-Akoto, Chairperson of the Sekyere Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church, pledged the support of the church towards the promotion of quality education delivery in the school.

Nana Serwaa Bonsu, the Asensuhemaa of the Effiduase Traditional Area, commended the management and staff of the school for the role they were playing in shaping the lives of young people in the community.
