Asafo-Asin (Ash), June 6, GNA - Saviour International School at Asafo-Asin, near Tepa in the Ahafo-Ano North District has marked its fifth anniversary with a call on parents to seek quality education for their wards.
Nana S.K. Kufuor, Odikro of the town, who made the call at the ceremony, said formal education had become the bedrock of modernity and societal advancement.
He called on the District Assembly to provide the community with basic amenities like potable water as the area had become endemic with buruli ulcer cases.
Mr Joseph Amoateng, Assembly Member and Mr Awuah Berchie, chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association deplored the high level of indiscipline among the school children in the area and advised school authorities to take stringent measures to arrest the situation. The school's proprietor, Elder Francis Afrimu, said the school, which started with just "a handful" of pupils, now had more than 100 pupils.
He said the school authorities would adopt measures to instil discipline in the children to be able to achieve their academic targets, noting that the school had seen a steady rise in academic and sporting activities.
