Asankrangwa (W/R), May 22, GNA - Nana Adu Boahene I, Gyasehene of Asankrangwa in the Wassa-Amenfi District has urged parents to visit their children's schools regularly, pay their schools fees promptly and also help to finance school projects to help raise the standard of education.

He said these at a meeting of the Parents Teacher Association (PTA) of the Asankrangwa Model School at Asankrangwa on Friday at which four pioneer teachers of the school were honoured.

Nana Boahene expressed concern about the attitude of some parents who shirk their responsibilities to their children's education and said this had adversely affected the development of many children in the area.

He advised teachers to continue to give of their best and to be good role models for children who pass through their hands. Mr Bernard Aidoo, head teacher urged parents to give children balanced diet each morning before they go to school instead of giving them money to buy food from vendors.

He advised teachers to be disciplined always and avoid vices that dent the image of the teaching profession. Members witnessed the commissioning of five computers and their accessories donated to the school by Wassa Amenfi citizens in the United Kingdom.

Colour television sets and cash awards totalling six million cedis were presented to the four pioneer teachers of the school for their dedicated service.

Mr John Sackey, one of the award winners, on behalf of his colleagues thanked the PTA and the school authorities for honour done them.
