A large number of enthusiastic first year students of free education were admitted to the Ngleshie Amanfro Senior High School yesterday and offered orientation of the do’s and don’ts of the school by the headmistress of the school, Rev. Mrs. Lydia Enim–Nketiah, and the Board chairman of the institution, Professor Christopher Obroni.
Mrs. Enim-Nketiah encouraged the excited students to learn hard to justify the scholarships that have been awarded them in the form of free education and also be appreciative to the government by performing well in all their future exams.
She noted that the school believes in discipline which has really made it what it is among the comity of schools in the country as they perform well in academics and sports as well.
The headmistress noted that due to indiscipline, a student was sacked when he was caught smoking wee in the school, and advised them to study their booklets which contain guidelines of the school in order to be aware of how to behave at the school to avoid a breach of the rules to risk dismissals from the institution.
She noted that the free education includes everything, except shoes and a few personal belongings that the students would need.
On his part, the Board Chairman of the school, who is also a Senior Lecturer of the University of Education, Winneba, Professor Christopher Obroni, said the free education has nothing to do with politics, but it is a policy to help all Ghanaian students to access free SHS for a better future for all students in public schools in the country.
He also urged the students to learn hard and read widely in order to gain more knowledge that will make them successful in any field that they wish to venture into in school.
He noted that all schools in Ghana are good schools so what is important is to learn hard in order to move further on the academic ladder and finally enter the university and other places of higher learning.
