GES honours four retired staff at Agona West
Four retired employees of the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the Agona West Municipal Education Office in the Central Region have been honoured for their contribution towards the development of education in the Municipality.
Made up of teaching and non-teaching staff, the retirees were presented with citations and parcels in recognition of their service.
The ceremony was held on the theme: “Retired, but a Repertoire of Knowledge to the Development of Education”.
Addressing the ceremony, Elizabeth Helen Essel, Agona West Municipal Director of Education urged the recipients to use the experience acquired in their active years for the benefit of society.
She said they would have ample time to actively impact the lives of the people in the society, now that they were on retirement.
She thanked the retirees for their immense contributions towards improving education in the Municipality.
The Municipal Director of Education urged them to regularly undergo check-ups to know their health status, as their active years had been very challenging with a lot of risks.
She therefore reiterated the call on retirees to make themselves available to enable others to benefit from their array of experience.
The retirees in a response, thanked the Municipal Education Office for the honour.
