The Crown Prince Academy, a private educational institution in Accra, has held its 5th graduation ceremony with a call on parents to partner teachers in the training of their children.
It was on the theme: Education – a catalyst for positive change in society and economic development .
Speaking at the ceremony last Saturday as the guest speaker, Patrick Otieku Boadu, Chief Manager, Onetouch division of Ghana Telecom, said education is about imparting knowledge and helping to draw out what is inside us .
Parents therefore have the responsibility to collaborate with the school authorities to stimulate the process of the children’s education in order to give them proper training and upbringing, he emphasised.
Mr Antwi-Boasiako stressed the need for educational policies to be regulated to make it easier for the private sector to participate and contribute meaningfully towards education delivery.
He urged the graduates to bring out all that they have learned by working hard to secure themselves a good future, since not all educated people are liberated .
In his report, the headmaster of the school, Joseph Appiah Addo, said the school scored 100 per cent passes in the 2007 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Of the 72 candidates presented, 65 had aggregate six, four had aggregate seven, two obtained aggregate eight, and one candidate had aggregate ten, he said.
The above success could not have been achieved without a strong team of teaching staff, he added.
While advising the graduates to protect and uphold the image of the school wherever they find themselves, Mr Addo urged them to stay focus and keep their dreams and aspirations, intact.
