Heads of Schools told to share Good Practices.


The Obuasi Municipal Director of Education, Mrs. Beatrice Boakye Prempeh, has called on heads of basic schools to continue sharing good practices that would help to improve the quality of education delivery.

She said such exchanges would also help the heads to gain experience in managing the human, material and financial resources of their schools.

Mrs. Prempeh was speaking at a three-day management training workshop for over 100 basic schools from the municipality at Obuasi.

She said the heads were doing their best with support from staff at the education office but urged them to continue to put in efforts for the municipality to achieve the best of results.

The municipal director reminded them that management involved planning, budgeting, coordination, monitoring, supervision and the implementation of programmes and activities and said they should engage their teachers in such activities for effective school management.

“You have a lot to do and I am happy that you are doing as expected of you,” she said.

Mrs. Prempeh said in-service training was very important to the teacher and announced the Ghana Education Service had made it a requirement for all kinds of promotions in the service.

Among the topics treated at the workshop were school record keeping, vetting of lesson notes, duties of a head teacher, the head teacher as a financial administrator and good human relations.

Others were disbursement and utilization of the Capitation Grant, preparation of School Performance Improvement Plan (SPIP), relation between the school and community and budget preparation and auditing.
