THREE KINDARGARTENS Pupils from His Grace and Mercy Preparatory School, which is within the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly (LekMA), have made a passionate appeal to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the assembly to provide infrastructure for the school children in the area.
According to the KG pupils, their foundation of becoming future leaders is to have good basic infrastructure like libraries and recreational centres to help them develop.
The pupils, on behalf of their mates elsewhere, made this passionate appeal in a form of a petition to the MCE during the 6th KG Independence Day Anniversary March Past at Teshie, which was on the theme: ‘Celebrating Peace and Unity.’
Receiving the petition, the MCE of LekMA, Mrs Evelyn N .A Twum-Gyamrah, praised the pupils for their courage and desire to have better education.
She, however, assured them that the assembly, under her leadership, was doing everything possible to make education comfortable for them.
Touching on the theme, the MCE said for the country to accelerate its growth, “we need to come together” and push a common agenda. She thanked the directorate for the nationalistic approach to the event.
Mrs Gloria Naa-Ahinee Clerk, the Municipal Director of Education, said the march past was intended to be used as a form of enrolment drive to lure other pupils who are not in school to come and make Teshie an enviable place of education.
Mr Cephas Sowah, who chaired the march past, commended the participants for the level of performance and said the enrolment drive be encouraged to ensure more kids come on board.
“If it is possible, organise a match past at Teshie Maami or market to entice the children to come to school,” he appealed to the people.
Ms Abena Owusuaa Amo Yeboah, the Municipal Early Childhood Coordinator, said she was happy with the standard of participation, considering the fact that the earlier one held at Nungua was rained off.
According to her, a total of 25 KGs took part in the exercise, which was being used as a channel to increase enrolment in the municipality.
