By gna

Nana Oduro Poku III, Chief of Dromankese in the Nkoranza North District, on Friday commended teachers of the Seventh Day Adventist Junior High School for their hard work that enabled the school to score 100 per cent pass in this year's Basic Education Certificate Examination(BECE).

He appealed to parents to team up with the teachers and offer them the necessary support and encouragement so to boost their morale.

Nana Oduro Poku, a retired educationist, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that that he was impressed about the way all the teachers in the community were working.

He said last year the Anglican Junior High School at Dromankese scored zero per cent in the Basic Education Certificate Examination but this year they managed to obtain 42 per cent pass.

Nana Oduro Poku said chiefs and the community leaders would also not relent in their efforts in supporting the teachers so to sustain their interest to serve in the area.

The people have decided to construct a bungalow for the teachers in the community.

Mr. Francis Nkrumah, Headmaster of the SDA Junior High School, said his staff showed commitment and organized extra classes for the students free of charge.

Mr. Nkrumah said the parents joined hands with the teachers and supervised the work of their children and monitored their movements.

He was full of praise for the 11 past students who also allowed themselves to be controlled by the teachers and attended classes regularly and expressed the hope that the school would maintain the good record this year and the subsequent years as well.
