The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has presented three boxes of “The Cockcrow” books to final year students of the Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Girls Basic School at Korle-Gonno in Accra.
The donation was made on Friday in fulfillment of a promise he made last year during the national tree planting exercise in the school.
‘Cockcrow’ is the approved book for the literature aspect of the English Language section of the upcoming Basic Education Certificates Examination (BECE).
Apart from the Minister donating the books, he spent time teaching mathematics and the English language during the visit.
He urged students to develop an interest in studying mathematics since that is the “easiest subject to study” and clear their minds of the misconception that “mathematics is a difficult subject”.
He assured them of his readiness to continue visiting them to encourage them to study hard as well as liaise with the school authorities and their parents to organise vacation classes for the students.
“I am going to get teachers to support them during the vacation and after school, I will take care of the cost. I just want them to succeed”, he said.
Dr Adutwum reminded the girls to take keen interest in their education and should not allow their peers to distract them from their studies.
Regarding the choice of Senior High schools, the Education Minister urged the students not just to choose any school because of influence from their friends.
“I have also come to meet a group of teachers who are so dedicated”, he said.
The Headteacher of the school, Patience Addy, lauded the Education Minister for honouring his promise of supporting the students.
She was also happy that the Minister spent time teaching and mentoring the students.
“The Minister today has fulfilled the promise he made last year during the tree planting exercise and we are so excited and this gesture alone will go a long way to motivate my students and teachers to improve upon their performance”, she said in an interview with JoyNews.
