THREE KINDARGARTENS Pupils from Joy Kids International School, which is within the Krowor Municipal Assembly (KroMA), have on behalf of their mates, 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, they need good basic infrastructure like libraries and recreational centres to help them develop good foundation of becoming future leaders.
The pupils, on behalf of their mates elsewhere, made this passionate appeal in a form of a petition to the MCE in a thrilling manner during the 2ndKG Independence Day Anniversary March-past at Nungua Town Park, which was on the theme: “Consolidating our gains.”
Request to MCE
The pupilswereEliezer Dadzie, Davida Mensah and Mary Sackey, wholed in presentingtheir message to the MCE,said“suitable furniture such as maker boards and mono-desks should be provided for all KG schools.
They also asked that “Textbooks for the new curriculum should also be provided for all KG schools, and teaching and learning material resources such as laptop and play items should also be provided for all KG schools.
They also asked that the “Assembly should assist parents to get jobs by creating opportunities in the municipality and education officers should visit KG schools frequently to help teachers teach well.”
Receiving the petition, Mr John Tsiko, the Municipal Works Engineer, who represented Mr JoshuaNiiBortey, the MCE of KroMA, assured the children that their petition would be presented to the MCE.
While praising the pupils for their courage and desire to have better education, he assured them that the assembly was doing everything possible to make education comfortable for them.
KG march-past is enrolment drive
Mrs Gloria Naa-Ahinee Clerk, the Municipal Director of Education, said the march-past was intended to be used as a tool of enrolment drive to lure other pupils who are not in school to come and make Nungua an enviable place of education.
“The event is a deliberate attempt to create a bigger stage for children to participate in the independence anniversary celebration, hence creating the sense of unity, peace and nation building in the early stages of child development in the municipality,” she said.
She added that “It is also a form of enrolment drive to encourage parents to enrol their children in school for formal education.”
According to her, early childhood starts from zero to eight, where the child needs adequate attention and care and it is believed that if children are given the right foundation in education at this level, they would grow to become great achievers.”
Mr Francis Kwabena Adzeko, the head of Human Resource unit at KroMA, 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.
The KG march-past is principally meant for enrolment drive, so let’s go deep into our communities and bring all school-age children who are not here back in school.
Ms Abena OwusuaaAmoYeboah, the Municipal Early Childhood Coordinator, expressed satisfaction at the standard of participation and advised parents to get themselves involved in the early upbringing of their children.
“I will advice parents to involve themselves in early child education since they are the future leaders,” she advised.
In all a total of 17 private schools participated in the exercise. They are Nungua Methodist KG, NunguaPresby KG, St. Peters Anglican KG, St. Peters Anglican A and B KG, Quaye Nungua KG, Nungua KroMA 1 KG, KroMA 4 KG, KroMA 5 KG, Central KG,KroMA 7 KG and SDA A&B KG.
