Happy Home School Complex at Manhean, a suburb of Tema, has organised a Career Day to assist the children to choose their future professions.
The students were dressed in different uniforms to represent their future careers such as nursing, security services, engineering, among others.
The Headmaster of the School, Prosper Ashigbor, told the Junior Graphic that the objective of the programme was to educate the learners on various career opportunities.
“The professionals’ day is to provide learners with a tangible experience that provides a connection between their academic pursuit and careers in future,” he said.
He advised that careers could only be achieved by determination and perseverance.
Some resource persons were invited to help clear any doubts the schoolchildren had about choosing their careers.
Two health workers of the Tema Manhean Polyclinic, Mavis Dewodo and Eunice Kanor, educated the children on some challenges and sacrifices associated with choosing a career, especially the health sector.
They encouraged the learners to focus on what they actually wanted to be in the future and pursue it, adding “as you progress you will gain more knowledge about your career.”
Fleet Chief Petty Officer Class II, Samuel Kankam Nimako of the Ghana Navy, Tema Eastern Naval Command, engaged the students on the duties of the Ghana Armed Forces and advised them to take their studies seriously to achieve their dream, particularly those who desire to join the army in the future.
