The Metro Director for the National Service Secretariat (NSS), Baffuo Asaase Gyimah has called on students to think through careers they would want to pursue after school.
This, he noted would inform how they study and prepare themselves while in school.
Addressing a Career Summit event organised by the Metro Directorate of the National Service Persons (NASPA) as Chairman, Mr Gyimah said it was important that students think through what they would want to become in future at the Senior High School Level.
“I am hopeful that when Ghanaian students get their minds to think about careers they would want to pursue in future they would have the desire to learn towards that”, Mr Gyimah stated.
Mr Gyimah advised the students who were drawn from the Kumasi Anglican, Kumasi Secondary Technical and Asanteman Senior Secondary schools to be focused on their studies at school.
He said how they shape up in life would depend on the attitude and character they build while in school.
Rather than anything, Mr Asaase urged the students to take advantage of their environments and study to get good grades that would enable them pursue university education after SHS.
“You become what you do with your life and therefore i will urge all of you to be focused on your courses so you can study to pass well and make the entry to university seamlessly smooth”, the Metro NSS Director stated.
Dr Pauline Boachie Ansah-Coleman, Pharmacist at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) asked students to concentrate on their studies while in school.
She encouraged them to research into their careers so that they can apply themselves to studying to get good grades so they can access university education.
Professor Alexander Yao Segbefia, Associate Professor at the Geography Department at KNUST admonished students to devise ways of learning in school.
He noted that constant revision was key to unlocking their minds to appreciate the courses they were offering.
