The Good Shepherd International School at Boadua near Akwatia, has celebrated its fifth anniversary with the inauguration of its ICT centre.

In his inaugural address, the Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Alhaji Baba Jamal, congratulated the school for establishing the centre, and advised the pupils to take the study of ICT seriously.

He said in the modern world, one’s education was not complete, if one was not a computer-literate, since most jobs demanded computer literacy.

Alhaji Jamal said advanced countries took the study of ICT seriously, whereas others lagged behind.

That is the reason why the government is encouraging and supporting the study of the subject.

The Deputy Minister said education generally ensured a nation and individuals’ progress, noting that, it did not matter one’s humble beginning, education could put one on the high path.

He asked teachers to exercise patience in imparting knowledge to their pupils, while urging parents not only to encourage their wards to study hard, but to refrain from the use of abusive language.

Alhaji Jamal presented one desktop computer with accessories to the school.

The headmaster, Mr Isaac Kwasi Duku, said the school which started with 15 pupils, now has a population of 320 pupils, with a staff of 16 teachers.

Mr Samuel Odoom, the proprietor of the school, disclosed that by next academic year, the school would start a Junior High School (JHS).

Mr Samuel Sackey, popularly known as ‘’Omega,’’ who chaired the function, urged both parents and teachers to work together to ensure that pupils attained the best in education.
