The Students Representative Council (SRC) of the Tamale College of Education (TACE) has set July 3rd, to 10th, 2021 to mark its 12th SRC Week Celebration.
The week-long event is loaded with many activities, both educative and entertaining and it's scheduled to start on Saturday, July 3, 2021.

Speaking to the media, the SRC President of the College Tahiru Mohammed Murtala said for the past two years the college hasn't organized the event. He blames it on the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"For two years now, thus since the outbreak of the COVID -19 pandemic, we haven't observed the event," he said
He explained that the theme for this year's celebration sought to bring together stakeholders in education to deliberate on ways to improve Teacher Education in the country.
"The theme was carefully crafted with the mind of bringing together the various stakeholders in education such as GNAT, NAGRAT, CCT, GTEC, and GES as well as the ministry of education so that together we can all see how to improve Teacher Education in Ghana."
He also said as part of the celebration, the board will be handing over some completed projects it undertook since assuming office.
