Parents asked to educate their disabled children-Headmistress
December 17, 2010
Agona Swedru (C/R), Dec. 17, GNA - The Headmistress of Agona Swedru Salvation Army School of the Deaf, Mrs Favoua Aflakovi, has appealed to parents to send their physically-challenged children to school.
She made the call when addressing traders at the Mandela Market Square in Agona Swedru as part of activities marking the Annual Day celebration of the School.
The theme for the celebration was "creating awareness for patents to send their deaf children to school."
The headmistress said education was key to development and therefore must be given to every child.
Mrs Aflakovi said the school started with 24 children and now has student population of 125 children.
The headmistress commended the government for including the school in the School Feeding Programme and the Capitation Grant and called for the completion of a GETFUND project started two years ago.
