The Rev Lartey Adotey Memorial School has held a graduation ceremony for 49 learners.

Twenty Junior High School (JHS) students who wrote this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and 29 Kindergarten (KG)Two pupils graduated.

They received certificates and Bibles, while students and pupils who excelled in various subjects were awarded.

It was on the theme, “Educating the Ghanaian child holistically, the God factor.”

The Overseer of the Apostolic Church, Ghana, Cape Coast Dr Ebenezer Gyamerah asked parents to support teachers to nurture children to be responsible adults in the future.

According to him, the education of the children was a shared responsibility among parents, teachers, the government and the church and each has to play its part.

He said stakeholders have to help in providing holistic education for children by making it more practical so they will grow up to solve societal problems with the knowledge they had acquired.

In her report, the Headmistress of the school, Mrs Georgina

Addington-Frempong said the school had progressed tremendously as a result of the continuous inculcation of the fear of God into students.

She said the school, which currently has an enrolment of about 400 students, attained 100 per cent distinction in last year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

She, therefore, expressed her gratitude to her parents for their cooperation in ensuring the progress of their children.

She appealed to authorities and other stakeholders to support the school with computers, a refurbished library, a science laboratory, and a Basic Technology Design (BDT) workshop.
