KNUST VC calls for academic discipline among students

Professor Otoo Ellis, Vice Chancellor, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has reminded students to be disciplined, saying without that it would be difficult to achieve academic success.

He said they should refuse to have anything doing with violent acts, drugs, alcohol and other socially reprehensible lifestyles.

Prof Ellis was speaking at the launch of the 50th anniversary and third speech and prize-giving day of the KNUST Senior High School (SHS) in Kumasi.

“KNUST SHS 50 years of discipline and steady academic progression”, is the theme for the anniversary.

The Vice Chancellor said it was refreshing that since its establishment in year 1961, the school had never experienced any acts of students’ demonstration or vandalism.

The enviable record, he advised, should be maintained.

Prof Ellis gave the assurance that despite the constraints facing the University, they would continue to provide adequate architectural and engineering support to develop the school’s infrastructure.

Mr Samuel Sarpong, Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, said the Assembly had successfully completed a-six-unit classroom block for the school.

Investment in the human resource, he said, was a top priority of the Government and for that matter everything would be done to create the right conditions for effective academic work.

Mrs Joyce Owusu-Ansah, the Headmistress, said they were grateful to the Government for constructing a classroom, boys’ dormitory and bungalow for the school.
