The Ho-Dome United Youth Club has donated assorted literature books to the local R.C School Complex to inculcate reading habits in the pupils aand enhance teaching and learning.
Making the donation at the school's Open Day at Ho-Dome, Zilas Dikro, said that the club, having realised the important role reading plays in the educational development of the children, decided to support them with the relevant books.
He said inculcating reading habits in the children at the early stages would go a long way to help them acquire good knowledge, adding that, it would help them to know what to use their idle times for “instead of the devil planning for them evil things”.
Mr Dikro appealed to parents to collaborate the effort of the teachers to help their children to cultivate a good habit instead of them wasting their precious time watching films on television as well as playing video games.
He reminded parents that education is the best valuable property they can give to their children to ensure their success in future, to become good citizens to help in nation-building.
Receiving the package, the headmistress of the school, Marine Kudolo, thanked the club for donating the books and said the gesture indicated the commitment of stakeholders in education to the development of education and mentioned the construction of the Kathy Knowles library and the computer laboratory, as some of the facilities that have enhanced teaching and learning in the shool.
She also expressed appreciation to Madventure Group, a British voluntary organisation for helping to train the school's sports team.
The Christian Father of the school, Reverend Father Joy Akposu, was not happy about what he described as neglect of the primary schools by the old students to assist their alma mater, which he noted, had helped in laying the foundation of their lives.
Rev Fr. Akposu said “the old students associations rather concentrate attention on the second cycle schools and tertiary institution where government and organisations use resources to maintain them at the expense of building a solid foundation of the younger ones”.
