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.
