Mr Amoatey gave the advice at separate programmes in Somanya, Nkurankan and Klo-Agogo in Yilo Krobo Municipality when he visited the three centres where holiday classes were being organised.
The holiday class which is being attended by 657 students who would be in junior high form three next academic year, was organised by the MP in collaboration with the assembly to take thestudents through English Language and Mathematics.
The MP used the opportunity to provide the students with the necessary teaching and learning materials, including exercise books and graph sheets, for their exercises.
He said the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results of the previous years in the Yilo Krobo Municipality were not encouraging, and that called for the holiday classes to prepare the students enough for next academic year.
'Your future depends on what you are doing here today so don't take what you are doing lightly. It is your future and see it as such and be more serious with it,' Mr Amoatey stressed.
'We want to help you to build solid foundation from the basic school to enable you to achieve your future dreams,' he said.
The MP was full of praise for both the teachers and students at all the three centres for the seriousness they attached to the exercise. He was especially grateful to the teachers and the two Circuit Supervisors because they sacrificed their time to help their students.
Master Emmanuel Zutah, a student of Nkurankan R/C JHS, who thanked the MP and the assembly appealed to the organisers to add Social Studies and Integrated Science to the classes, since, according to him, these two subjects were part of the core subjects in BECE.
He advised his mates to take the lessons seriously in order to put them in a better position for what they would be doing next academic year.
The two Circuit Supervisors, Messrs Benjamin Kwame and Samuel Narh Tetteh, who were co-ordinating the programme, added their voice to that of the MP for the students to take the lessons seriously.
