One of Accra’s leading private schools, Crown Prince Academy is set to roll out e-learning platform to enable pupils have unlimited access to the school’s educational materials while off campus.
The project is expected to be fully fledged in the next two years, the Headmaster of the School Joseph Appiah Addo announced at its 11th graduation ceremony on Saturday.
It would first be piloted at the Junior High School level, and based on its success rate, replicated at the upper primary (class 4 to 6) and subsequently to pupils in class 2 and 3.
“A platform would be created for students to access their homework or research work online, solve same and e-mail the work done to their subject facilitators. We think that we could be doing this even during the holidays,” Mr. Appiah Addo noted.
In all, 88 students who recently sat the Basic Education Certificate Examinations were graduated. Those who excelled in various disciplines while in school were awarded. Parents and teachers whose works were exceptional were also recognized by the management of Crown Prince Academy.
The headmaster said plans by Management to ensure that staff of the school attain certain academic height were on course. For instance, at the JHS department, four out of the 14 staff have Masters Degrees with the remaining holding Bachelor Degrees.
“Over the last three years, Crown Prince Academy has been reshaping, rethinking and refocusing the quality of its entire system of education,” he pointed out.
Management, he said, is also taking a second look at the school’s slogan ‘Sending Leaders to the World’ as it tries to qualify the leadership aspect.
Mr. Appiah Addo maintained: “Our concern has emanated from how leadership in Africa, particularly West Africa and to a large extent Ghana, has been so demonized, and attributed with all the wrong reasons. This has made the word ‘Leader’ appear quite vague.”
Managing Director of Crown Prince Academy, Mrs. Susanne Prince-Boateng, charged the graduands to make great impact as thinkers and innovators who are capable of fashioning out how to make Ghana proud.
“In the age of 3D print, space shuttle and bioengineering, our farmers are still using hoses and cutlasses; we virtually import everything and produce less. We, the older generation, look up to you, the young ones, to take up the mantle and become our vessels of hope for a great transformation of our motherland.”
