In the area of education, the government is doing its best to bring education to the doorsteps of the citizenry. This is according to the District Chief Executive for the Kassena-Nankana West District Assembly, Gerard Ataogye.

He said this when he spoke at the 67th Independence Day celebration.

Mr. Ataogye said, with the support of the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND), 4 six-unit classroom blocks have been constructed in the district and handed over to the beneficiary communities for use.

They are Sakaa Junior High School, English and Arabic Primary School-Paga, St. Oscar’s Roman Catholic Primary School at Kajelo, and Chiana Roman Catholic Primary School, he stated.

He stated that the school feeding program in the district has increased from 59 to 69, with an enrollment of seventeen thousand and forty-nine (17,049) pupils.

All primary schools in the district have been covered under the school feeding program, he added.

The District Director of Education, Mr. George Bebuga Woyongo, said teachers play a pivotal role in nurturing the next generation of Ghanaian citizens, who will uphold and defend our democracy.

“Not just imparting knowledge, you are instilling values, fostering critical thinking, and empowering students to become active and engaged participants in our democratic society,” he added.

According to him, teachers should embrace their role as guardians of democracy within the classroom and beyond.

“Teach your students not only about the principles of democracy but also about the importance of civic responsibilities, respect for diversity, and the power of collective action within the democratic space as enshrined in the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.”

Mr. George used the occasion to express his heartfelt gratitude to the gallant teachers in the district for their unwavering commitment to helping shape the minds and hearts of the youth.
