Educational institutions urged to work on morality
Reverend Joseph Senyo-Pongo, Resident Pastor of Evangel Assemblies of God Church, Ho at the weekend challenged educational institutions to seriously address issues pertaining to morality among students.
He said this was necessary to match academic and professional excellence with moral uprightness.
Reverend Senyo-Pongo said this at the inauguration of Wallahs Academy Army Cadet and the launch of the School’s fifth anniversary in Ho.
The anniversary scheduled for March this year is on the theme: “Five years of quality education, success, challenges and way forward.”
Reverend Senyo-Pongo said there should be no pretence that all was well with issues pertaining to morality in the country.
“Our students are our only hope and we must start working on them now, so that they become responsible citizens,” Rev. Senyo-Pongo stressed.
He therefore charged authorities of educational institutions especially Senior High Schools to give high priority to morality.
Rev Senyo-Pongo advised students to work extra hard and develop good personal ethics and principles to be successful in future.
Mr Francis Kwawu, Municipal Director of Education commended Wallahs Academy for having achieved a lot within five years.
Mr Maxwell Afram, Rector of the Academy said the School is among the top five private Senior High Schools in the Volta Region in terms of academic performance and extra-curriculum activities.
He said the school now has more than 300 students from just nine, five years ago.
Wallahs Academy is a subsidiary of Wallahs Educational Institute, which has the vision of producing excellent students for quality human resource.
Programmes lined up for the fifth anniversary include, clean-up exercises, symposiums and an anniversary durbar on March 10, 2012.
Capt. George Nfodjo (Retired) Member of Parliament for Ho-Central inaugurated the School’s Army Cadet and urged the members to help ensure discipline in the School.
