The Member of Parliament for Okaikoi Central, Patrick Yaw Boamah has extended his benevolence to free vacation classes for SHS 1 & 2 students from various schools and residents in the constituency.

According to him, the children are the future leaders of the nation and therefore want to occupy them during the vacation instead of allowing them to loiter around, engaging in unnecessary ventures.

The classes will cover both core and elective subjects including English Language, Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies and Economics.

He added that some parents cannot afford the vacation classes but he has taken it upon himself to organize such programme for the children yearly to support them in their academic endeavour.

Boamah reiterated that to become somebody better in future starts from school and calls for collective responsibilities to support the children in their education. He buttresses his point with the Holy Bible that says, train up the child the way he should go and when he grows up he will not depart from it.

He pointed out that he can organize classes for them but he cannot learn for them thereby admonishing them to take their books as their best friend instead of constantly using the social media.

The MP advised them to pray, learn and respect elders in society and also urge the parents and guardians not to miss this unique opportunity for their wards, they should make sure they are there to experience it.
