Accept Posting To Rural Area’s For The Sake Of Children ~ Prestea-Heman Chief Appeals To Teachers

A Divisional Chief of the Prestea-Heman Traditional Area in the Prestea Huni-Valley Municipality of the Western Region, Nana Nteboa Pra IV, has entreated teachers to accept posting to rural communities for the future of the children.

He explained that considering the importance of education, the Prestea-Heman Traditional Area, under his leadership, remained committed to promoting education through the development of children and support for teachers posted to the area.

He added that to improve education and achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), which focused on education and aimed to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, as well as promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, there was the need for more support.

At the finals of the maiden edition of the Beyeman Quiz Competition in the traditional area, Nana Pra said several studies showed that good educational infrastructure and motivation encouraged attendance and allowed teachers to deliver without difficulty.

He again said even though the condition of the pupils in the deprived community was not the best, the traditional council was not going to look on unconcerned.

“We are doing the little we can to help; hence, the need to accept posting to the community while we continue with the support,” he stated.

He said that to achieve SDG 4, all stakeholders needed to note that teachers were important “because they change lives, inspire dreams of our children, and push the limits of human potential for social, economic and national development”.

He called on all stakeholders in the area to come on board to provide teaching and learning materials for the schools and support the traditional area to institute a teacher’s award scheme, among others.

“We will continue to do our bit at the community levels through programmes such as educational workshops or clinics to encourage all stakeholders – companies and individuals, among others, to help us inch towards perfection,” he said.
