Reconstituted Education Oversight Committee inaugurated at Awutu-Senya District
Awutu Beraku (C/R), March 8, GNA - A 15-member reconstituted Awutu Senya District Education Oversight Committee headed by Mr Sampson A. Amarh, the District Chief Executive, has been inaugurated.
The Committee is tasked to improve educational standard of the children in the area, educate members of the area on the need to invest in their children's education and counsel teachers to give off their best towards quality teaching and learning.
Addressing members of the Committee at Awutu Beraku, Mr Armah said matters relating to education became the issue on every political platform during the 2012 campaign and therefore 'one cannot deny the fact that quality and access to education is what Ghanaians want for their children.'
The DCE emphasised the need for stakeholders in education - parents, teachers, non-governmental organisations, corporate organisations to come together to ensure access to quality education for all in the area.
Mr Armah said with the reconstituted Committee in place they would work harder to promote teaching and learning in the district.
The Committee later directed that the District Assembly should sponsor 20 needy students who would excel in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the district to serve as means of encouraging learning among the children.
The Committee members also asked that 10 staff of the Health Directorate including midwives in the district should be sponsored to update their knowledge to enable them give quality health delivery to the community members.
