NANA NYARKOA Afraso I, Queen of Nyamekrom Traditional Area has donated teaching and learning materials including text books (60 packs), exercise books (600), mathematical sets and erasers to the Nana Oware Agyapong M/A Basic School.
Accompanied by Nana Kwame Nnuro Agyapong II, Chief of Nyamekrom, the Queen visited the school campus to present the items.
Addressing the pupils and school authorities, Nana Afranso said the gesture was aimed at encouraging the pupils to study hard.
‘’I decided to share these items to this school to remind the pupils that society is counting on them to do well in school so they could become useful persons in the future’’, the Queen noted.
The Queen advised parents and guardians to support school authorities to give the best of training to their wards.
She noted that it was becoming a worrying issue the rate some parents stormed schools to confront teachers who caution their wards for doing things that were bad.
Nana Afraso said rather than seeking to fight school authorities and teachers parents should cooperate with the teachers to give their wards the best of training and education.
‘’I have been hearing about how some parents go to schools to fight teachers for punishing erring pupils but I want the people of Nyamekrom and elsewhere to know that the training teachers give to the children is only aimed at shaping them to live responsible lives after school’’, the Queen stated.
Clean up Exercise:
Earlier at the weekend, Chief of Nyamekrom, Nana Nnuro Agyapong II joined the Assembly member, Enoch Boahene as well as residents of the electoral area to clean the streets of weeds and debris.
The residents, numbering over two hundred (200) took turns to weed and desilt some of the choked gutters in the area.
The Chief after the exercise thanked the Assembly-member and the people for showing their commitment to making the community look clean and tidy at all times.
On his part, the Assembly-member commended the Nyamekrom Chief for showing interest in issues about cleanliness and sanitation in the community and asked other Chiefs across the country to emulate the same.
