The Director of the Justice Nii Amarh Ollenu Memorial Basic School at La, Mr Fred Larbi, says the introduction of the school feeding programme has increased enrolment in basic schools in the country.He, therefore, commended the government for expanding the programme.

Speaking at the first Speech and Prize Giving Day of the school, Mr Larbi said the introduction of the school feeding programme “has increased the number of students in the school and parents are hoping for its extension to the junior high level”.

He used the occasion to appeal to the authorities to help construct a library for the school,  one which was unsuitable to accommodate the present student population, with books at the library being outdated.

The Chief of  La, Nii Kpobi Tetteh Tsuru III, called on parents to complement efforts of  teachers to instil discipline in their children to ensure that such children grew up with high moral values.

He said parents could for instance help monitor the activities of their children outside the normal school hours and must spend more time knowing their children, rather than attending social activities.

The La Mantse lamented the carelessness and negligence of some parents in the education of their children, adding that such behaviours did not augur well for the social up bringing of their children.
He said “parents must make it their duty to take a keen interest in the education of their children”, adding that education offers tremendous opportunities for every child.

The La Mantse used the occasion to caution parents to desist from spending all their time at social gatherings at the expense of the education of their children

The Accra Metro Director of Education in a speech read on his behalf by the Assistant Metro Director of Education, Mrs Gloria Clerk, said parents should show interest in their children’s  education.
She also urged teachers to be conscious and committed to their task in order to produce good pupils academically and morally.

Students were later awarded for their attitudes, moral behaviours and academic excellence in their various courses..

The senior prefect of the school Mr Enoch Clottey said parents must find time to visit schools to find out  about the attitudes and behaviours of their wards.

He appealed to the Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A) of the school to get the school a bus which would help convey students to the school and to their various homes.
