Parliament happy with efforts being made on education-MP

Awutu-Beraku, May 13, GNA - Parliament is happy with efforts being made by individuals and organisations in their active involvement in the promotion of basic and higher education in the country.

This is the reason why parliamentarians have been supporting communities, school managements and Parents/Teachers Associations with cash and in some cases building materials for the construction of school buildings, libraries and KVIP with part of their share of the common fund.

Mrs Hanna Tetteh-Kpodar, MP for Awutu/Senya said these when she presented roofing sheets worth 7,000,000 cedis to the authorities of Youth Faith International School at Awutu Beraku to help a 10-classroom block being constructed by the school.

She said members of parliament, irrespective of their political affiliations regard education as they do to economic, spiritual and cultural development of the country and would continue to support moves by the government to raise education at all levels of national administration.

Mrs. Tetteh-Kpodar however, advised managements of private educational institutions in the country to try and make their tuition and other charges a little more affordable for people in their communities to patronise.

She commended management and PTA of Youth Faith International School for their hard work and advised pupils of the school to cultivate the spirit of self control, obedient and hard work to enable them come out as responsible citizens, whom the nation could rally around for development.

Mrs. Tetteh-Kpodar particularly cautioned the JSS students who were at the function not to be complacent but rather take their studies very serious to pave the way for them to gain admission into secondary, technical and vocational institutions to secure employable skills, which would make them more useful to society.

Mr Emmanuel K.Sankofi, Chairman of Youth Faith International School's parent/teacher association, on behalf of the management the PTA and children of the school expressed his appreciation to Mrs. Tetteh-Kpodar for extending such laudable and inspiring assistance to the school, and appealed for more of such support from well wishers of the school to ensure early completion of the project.
