GES introduces Revised Unified Code of Conduct

By gna

Mrs Rebecca Dadzie, the Western Regional Director of the Ghana Education Service (GES), has said the service has introduced a Revised Unified Code of Conduct to enforce discipline among its staff and students.

She said this in an address read for her at the induction of new prefects and awards day of Bompeh Secondary Technical School at Takoradi.

Mrs Dadzie said the code had been effective in combating indiscipline in schools and many school administrations have been applying its tenets.

"If we accept the idea that a quiet atmosphere promotes learning, it follows that any breach of that atmosphere is will not be tolerated".

She advised the new prefects to foster harmonious relationship between the school authorities and students and to perform their roles diligently to project a positive image of the school.

Mrs Aba Smith, the Headmistress of the school, said the school obtained 95 per cent pass in last year's West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSSCE).

She said the school also performed creditably in the 2006 Science and Mathematics Quiz at its first appearance and has been invited to participate again this year.

Mr. Quansah called on the community, companies and business establishments to assist the school to develop.

He said students are receiving the same education as their counterparts in well-endowed schools.Mr. Joseph Quansah, a retired Metropolitan Director of Education who presided, urged parents not to look down on the school because it is a community institution.Mrs Smith commended the school's Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) for providing accommodation for teachers, establishing a computer laboratory and purchasing a school bus.
