Old boys of Yendi Islamic School commended

By GNA

Yendi (NR), Sept 21, GNA - The Yendi Asalia Islamic Primary School, has held its first speech and prize-giving day in the Yendi Municipality of Northern Region.

In all, 18 pupils and 18 teachers of the school received prizes for their best performances during the 2011/2012 academic year.

Pupils, who became first to third positions in primary one to six in the third term examination during the 2011/2012 academic year, received awards.

Master Sa-eed Adam of Primary six, Abdul Karimu Hafsa of primary four and Nuhu Habibata of Primary five, all who were first in their classes, received a school bag, exercise books and certificate of merit each.

Others in primary three to one also received similar awards.

The teachers also received bars of key soap and notebooks as their awards.

The old boys of the school introduced the awards to encourage pupils to learn hard and teachers to put up their best in teaching.

The school now has 190 boys and 149 girls with excellent academic performance in the Municipality.

A major problem in the area is lack of Junior High School for pupils who graduated from the primary level.

The school was founded in 1922 by the late Alhaji Abdulai Gomda.

A representative for the Old Boys, Mr. Bawa Mohammed Rabiu, said the school started as a Makaranta, teaching only Islamic studies and later introduced secular education in 1977.

Mr. Rabiu said products of Asalia Primary School can be found all over the country, making great contribution to the welfare of Muslims in Ghana and the country as a whole.

The Local Manager of Yendi Municipal Islamic Education Unit Mr. Ibrahim Mumuni Shani stated that Yendi Municipal Islamic Education Unit had 43 Primary Schools, 16 Junior High Schools and 43 KGS with a very high enrolment of both boys and girls.

He called on parents to use their resources to support their children's education.

A retired educationist, Mr. Amadu Tahidu, who chaired the function, urged parents to send their girl-child to school.
