The Vice Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), Professor Lydia Aziato has advocated for the enrollment of females into Senior High Schools (SHSs).

That, she said would ensure equity in male-female enrol­ment in pre-tertiary schools.

Prof Aziato said this last week at the 60th anniversa­ry of Awudome Senior High School (AWUSCO) at Tsito in Volta Region.

The anniversary was held on the theme “60 years of qual­ity education- benefits and relevance in contemporary times.”

She said educating females was not only about imparting knowledge, but it is about empowerment, resilience and transformation that tran­scends generations.

“Although AWUSCO is in the Volta Region, management should always endeavour to be equitable in admissions to provide opportunities for all qualified applicants from across the country,” she said.

She said the pre-tertiary institutions should create opportunities for individuals with disability, adding that it means ensuring disability friendly facilities.

She said those from less endowed schools and students with some learning disabilities should have special interven­tions to help them achieve the desired outcomes

The Vice Chancellor of UHAS said pre-tertiary education provides the foundations for success bonding while rela­tionships were established for life and alumni groups at this level are stronger.

Prof Aziato stated that in schools where alumni mentor­ship sessions are incorporated, students identify mentors that help them navigate their life journeys.
