Dr George Maddy, a medical doctor from Russia, said it takes more than just studying to excel in life, thus children must be humble and willing to submit to the instructions given by parents and teachers to excel.
He said this at a Career Day celebration at the Christ the King Methodist School at Anaji, a suburb of Takoradi.
The event was held to mark a weeklong celebration of the school’s "1st Speech and Prize giving Day", which was held under the theme: "Holistic Education the role of stakeholders".
Mrs Mildred Siabi-Mensah, a journalist at the Ghana News Agency, urged children to be dedicated and hard working to ensure that their dreams become a reality.
Madam Elizabeth Ofori, head teacher of the school, said the purpose of the Speech and Prize giving day was to reward deserving students and encourage others to emulate their example.
She said it is also to solicit for funds for the school in aid of the construction and expansion of the school building since the number of enrolment has increased.
Activities line-up for the week long celebration include: a procession through some streets, career day, clean-up exercise and a grand durbar.
