Parents Urged To Motivate Wards In ICT Studies Website
Parents and guardians have been urged to encourage their children in the study of Information Communication Technology (ICT) to enable them to meet competing demands on the job market. Mr. Joseph K. Onyinah, Metropolitan Educational Director of Education made this known in Kumasi on Wednesday in a speech read for him at the Africa Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E) Zion Junior High School Parent's Teachers' Association (PTA) meeting. He explained that to motivate the teaching and learning of ICT, in especially public schools, parents have to complement government's efforts by helping to set up computer laboratories in the various schools after the introduction of the course. The Director added that, parent's provision of the necessary inputs for the ICT studies for their wards would also help generate interest in promoting the course among students. Mrs. Margaret Kwakye, Headmistress of the primary school urged parents to ensure that their wards always looked neat and smart when going to school, saying that it builds the confidence of the children in class. Mr. Dickson Kwasi Odame, school Management Committee Chairman appealed to parents to visit their wards regularly as a means of supporting the teachers to build them up.
