He reminded teachers to prepare learners to acquire skills, knowledge, attitudes, and values that would address the interconnected global challenges and be innovative and assertive with entrepreneurial skills relevant for the fourth industrial revolution.

Since 2017, the government had initiated and implemented bold reforms and decisions aimed at improving standards and equipping learners with 21st century skills which are rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to produce a critical mass of assertive and employable youth to accelerate socio-economic transformation.

The government had started operationalizing some STEM schools such as Bosomtwe Girls STEM SHS…. »others like Diaso, Akrodie will be operationalized soon ».

She mentioned challenges such as staff accommodation, official vehicle for the Headmistress, fence wall, renovation of the boys’ dormitory as key ones that needed immediate intervention.

Madam Essel Cudjoe said despite the daunting challenges facing the school, there had been a turning point in the academic performances of students.

She said the school had produced many scholars contributing their quota to the development of Ghana and elsewhere and appealed to government, benevolent organizations, and the alumni to come to the aid of the school.

The Western Regional Director of Education, Mrs Felicia Agyeibea Okine congratulated the past and current Board of Governors, staff and students for the sterling achievements and good quality education delivery.

She reminded teachers and stakeholders of their role to sharpen the architects of tomorrow by equipping them with 21st century skills for lifelong learning opportunities.

The Director advised parents to monitor their children at home and play an active role in shaping their future.

The District Chief Executive for Ellembelle, Mr. Kwasi Bonzoh urged the community to get involved in the activities of the school.

« In the last four years, government’s focus had been on STEM and TVET education ».
