Quality Basic Education is hinged on Multi-tasking abilities of Female Teachers – Second Lady

 

The Second Lady, Mrs Samira Bawumia says the multi-tasking abilities of female teachers make them best suited in providing sound and quality basic education.

According to her, although the achievement of quality basic education is a shared responsibility, “the mental and physical contact of women with life is much more lasting and comprehensive than that of men,” thus making them crucial in achieving quality education at that level.

Mrs Bawumia was speaking at the weekend during the 10th Congregation of the St. Teresa’s College of Education in Hohoe, which saw the successful graduation of 228 trained female teachers.

Speaking on the theme: ‘The Female Teacher; A Tool for Transforming Society Through the Provision of Quality Basic Education,” she said in providing quality education, the country could not be oblivious of the importance of a sound teaching and learning environment; devoid of bickering and malice, and that it was at basic stage that the role of a female teacher came to play.

“She must be a peace broker, both among her pupils and the large community she lives and works in. Where peace abounds, there is unity and development is certain,” she said.

The Principal of St. Teresa’s College of Education, Mrs Angelina Kutin-Tandoh urged the graduates to be disciplined, law abiding, tolerant, modest and be content with what they have.

She said their graduation should be a “launching point,” projecting them to higher heights.

“Life is about growing, and having obtained Diploma in Basic Education gives each of you new opportunities to continue growing, and learn new skills that you will carry with you for the rest of your lives. So you see, you don’t have to stop there! Let the sky be your limit,” she added.

The graduation ceremony say six students passing out with First Class Honours, 53 had Second Class Upper Division, 101 had Second Class Lower Division, 59 with Third Class Division, while nine had a Pass.

Ms Loretta Ackah was adjudged the Overall Best Student.
