In an address to mark the day, Wing Commander Hilda Akuoko Adjei of the Ghana Air Force, said that it was important to make discipline a habit in all spheres of life.

She said: “In the realm of academic success, discipline manifests in various ways, including regular attendance to classes, diligent study habits, seeking assistance when needed, and a com­mitment to lifelong habits.’’

Wing Commander Adjei, howev­er, said that discipline extends be­yond the confines of the classroom and school grounds, adding that “it permeates every aspect of our lives, influencing our relationships, careers, and personal growth. Even in mo­ments of worship or online interac­tions, discipline should play a pivotal role.”

She urged the pupils and students to see discipline as a mindset and make con­scious efforts to prioritise their long-term goals over short-term gratifications, adding “It requires embracing discomfort and uncertain­ty, understanding and growth beyond comfort zones.’’

Wing Command­er Adjei charged the pupils and students to see discipline as char­acter and person­ality trait that must and should be developed and not a burden.
