St Maurice RC JHS calls on stakeholders to assist BECE wards

The management of  St Maurice Roman Catholic  A&B Junior High School (JHS), La, Accra has called on all stakeholders to assist their wards  to make good grades at the forthcoming  Basic Education Certification Examination (BECE).

The headmistress of the school, Mrs Evelyn  Ampomah- Nkansah  Mainoo  has expressed worry that since students had been at home for a long time, and contact hours  had reduced from a minimum of eight to four hours, parents must guide their wards  to study adequately at home to cover up for the  time lost.

She said the teachers had conditioned the minds of the students to study hard despite the COVID-19 pandemic, and that they were  prepared  to  help them come out victorious in the  BECE.

Mrs Mainno said  the   School Appraisal  Committee , made up of teachers would  analyse  the performance of students in the recent mock examination, adding that  the school was looking forward to writing another mock examination on August 17,  for Roman Catholic schools in the area.

According to her, these examinations would help the teachers to know the  strength of the students and areas which needed to be polished.

On COVID-19,  she  said a group of students and teachers who had attended a trainer  of trainees workshop and had become COVID-19 ambassadors, were assisting  their respective schools to educate their peers on how best to observe the  safety  protocols.

Mrs Mainoo said the COVID-19 ambassadors met each day to assess issues which pertained to the observance of COVID-19 protocols.   

The ambassadors also ensured that the Veronica buckets contained water while soap and tissue paper were  also available.
