Adankwame (Ash), Oct. 19, GNA - One hundred and eighty-seven out of the 287 candidates presented by the Asuofua Junior Secondary School (JSS) for the 2005 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) have so far been placed in some reputable senior secondary schools in the country through the computerisation system.
Thirty-three of them were placed in private second cycle institutions while the remaining 100 are yet to be placed. Mr Jones Arthur, headteacher of the school, announced this at the monthly review meeting of heads of public and private basic schools in the Adankwame circuit in the Atwima-Nwabiagya District on Tuesday. The meeting, which was attended by more than 30 headteachers, critically assessed and analysed the 2005 BECE results in the circuit. It also discussed the correct preparation of the School Performance Improvement Plan (CSPIP) to strengthen monitoring and supervision to improve teaching and learning and to ensure proper keeping of school records and writing of headteachers terminal reports.
Addressing the headteachers, Mr Baffour Asare-Bediako, an Assistant Director of Education at the Atwima-Nwabiagya District Education Directorate, charged them to identify and develop meaningful strategies for effective mobilisation of local resources to improve education delivery.
He said school authorities should create adequate awareness within the community about the need for transparency in the management of the school's finances.
Mr Asare-Bediako called for the strengthening of school-community relationship to create conducive atmosphere for quality teaching and learning.
Mr Wilson Awuah-Dartey, an Assistant Director of Education in-charge of Quality and Access (Supervision), urged the heads to improve the quality of instruction to ensure that children maximised the time spent in school.
Mr Stephen Osei-Appiah, the Adankwame Circuit Supervisor, urged teachers to periodically review strategies towards achieving set targets.
