Ms Mavis Ama Frimpong, the Birim North District Chief Executive (DCE) has advised parents to invest in their children’s education rather than spending much of their resources on funerals and other ceremonies.
She said government would continue to provide the necessary educational infrastructure and materials to facilitate teaching and learning in the country.
Ms Frimpong was speaking at the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meeting of the Akwadum Model School at New Abirem on Wednesday.
She stressed that parents had a crucial role to play in the development of their children, and said that the assembly’s “one graduate per family policy,” which aimed at ensuring that at least a graduate was produced from every family in the district was on course.
Ms Frimpong said more scholarships would be awarded to brilliant but needy students in the area in September this year, to enable them to completed their education.
She donated GH¢100.00 to the PTA to support its activities, and promised to donate computers for the school’s computer laboratory, to enable school children to study Information and Communication Technology.**
