Stakeholders in the education sector have been advised to play their role effectively to promote quality education in the country.
The Guidance and Counselling Coordinator of the Tema Metro Schools, Mrs Gifty Mussey Azeko, who made the call, said all hands must be on deck to fashion quality educational programmes that would be a legacy for the country’s future leaders.
“To ensure quality education stakeholders (the government, school, parents, and community) must play their role effectively,” Mrs Azeko said at the maiden graduation, speech and prize-giving day of Lyron International School in Accra last Saturday.
On the theme, “Laying the foundation for the future through quality basic education,” the event on the school’s premises on Spintex Road, Baatsona, served as a platform for deserving students and teachers to be honoured for their hard work.
Mrs Azeko lauded the school for its efforts in promoting quality education and also expressed the commitment of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to support private schools for them to address challenges facing them.
She urged Ghanaians to unite, play supportive roles and be part of the process of designing an educational system which would be cherished by all.
The Founder of the school, Ms Ama Shabee, in an interview with the Daily Graphic after the event said it was important to honour the hard work of staff and academic excellence by the pupils.
She said the occasion was also a period for the school to reflect on activities over the few years of its existence and assess itself in order to forecast for the future.
She urged parents and guardians to support and encourage their children and wards to work hard to achieve both academic and moral success.
