It was all joy when teachers, pupils and students of the Glory Kindercare Learning Complex at Fiapre, near Sunyani, put down their chalks, pencils, pens and books to enjoy themselves during an end-of-year programme dubbed: “Glory Goes Traditional”.
After going through rigourous classroom work and the tension that characterise examinations, it was time to have fun and refresh themselves.
The 1,200 pupils and students of the school engaged in a number of activities to commemorate the day.
The children sang Christmas carols, danced, cooked traditional dishes, engaged in a fashion show wearing varied traditional outfits and had a variety of food to eat.
Some of the children also dressed up in the clothes of the professions they hoped to pursue in future.
Speaking during the occasion, the Administrator of the school, Mr Emmanuel Taah-Amoako, said a conducive environment had been created over the years to mould the children to excel not only academically but in every aspect of their lives.
He, therefore, urged the children to create bonds of friendship among themselves so that they could share their knowledge and experiences always and learn from one another.
Mr Taah-Amoako commended parents for investing in the education of their children and gave the assurance that the teaching and non-teaching staff of the school would work hard so that their investments would not go waste.
He said the school, which was established in 1980 with only five pupils, now had a total of 1,200 pupils and students.
Mr Taah-Amoako said the school had consistently scored 100 per cent in the Basic Examination Certificate Examination (BECE) and excelled in extra-curricular activities such as the National Spelling B competition in 2015 and debate among many other contests.
