The Morning Star International High School (MOSHIGH) at the weekend, held its eighth Speech, Prize-Giving and Graduation Ceremony with a call on graduates never to stop learning to become better solutions providers in society.

The event held on the theme: “Transforming Our World through Education: The Role of Secondary Schools” saw the graduation of 12 Graduates who were urged to continuously study towards becoming the truest expression of themselves.

Dr Linda Deigh, the Associate Dean of Academic City University College who made the call urged the fresh graduates to have a mindset of ongoing and lifelong learning, which must stem from an attitude of questioning.

She urged the graduates and current students never to be afraid of questioning things especially on what they have limited knowledge on because it was not wrong to ask questions and that “if you do not ask, you will never know”.

Dr Deigh urged the graduates to be more creative in approach towards solutions saying “think outside the box or even grow the box,” adding there was no need to stop trying and questioning because that would be the true way to learn and stay confident.

She urged the graduates never to relent on the relationships created while in the secondary school level of their education adding that one of the reasons Ghana continues to be a nation of enviable peace was due to bonds built from a very young age through to the second-cycle institutions.

Mrs Nana Abena Kwakyi, the Managing Director of the School in her address commended the graduating class and all award winners, urging them to shine in every corner they would find themselves by using the knowledge gained for a positive change.

She said the school would continue to shape the lives of young learners through connection with families, developing students and empowering them for responsible adult life.

Mrs Kwakyi said a good education must necessarily inject the knowledge for building networks, engaging in social programmes, utilising resourceful expressions, community service, sports, finding relaxations adding that these tools and knowledge imparted on them would serve as a fantastic foundation for transforming the world.

She said the school’s secondary education had opted to provide learning, character building, optimism, creative arts, confidence, good communication skills through many languages, critical thinking, problem-solving strategies, Christian values, and a determination for hard work among others.

Mr Charles Adu Appeah, the Director of Programmes at MOSHIGH said the school has the right ambience and serenity conducive for academic work and other recreational activities with diligent staff who had gone extra miles to impart knowledge in the students.

He urged parents to engage their wards constantly in discussions concerning academics progress and share hopes, aspirations, and concerns adding that the smartness and astute intelligence of the modern day student could not be underestimated.

As part of the occasion, the School launched its magazine titled: ‘Sirius’, which seeks to give opportunities to students to build their communication skills and also make known to parents, the happenings on campus.

Mr Daniel Ofori Mante, the Principal of the School said aside ensuring the publication of future editions, the proceeds generated from the magazine would be used to procure learning materials for the Dodowa ‘Basic A’ primary school.

Master Prince Amos, the Head Boy of the 2018/2019 Academic year in an address commended parents and teachers for sacrificing for their future and urged colleagues never to take for granted what had been done for them and make them proud.

Graduates and students who excelled in the academic year were recognised and presented with awards towards motivating them to do more in their academics and other aspects of their lives.

Some staff members were also awarded for their dedication to service and sacrifice.

The eighth Speech, Prize-Giving and Graduation Ceremony were characterised with an exhibition of students’ made artefacts and fashion accessories, cultural display, spoken word among other performances.
