Oyarifa (G/R), Aug. 7, GNA - The Gloryhills
International School (GHIS) has held its 10th anniversary and 8th graduation
ceremony with a call on parents to be good ambassadors by contributing towards
the success of the school.
Dr Eric Ntiamoah, a medical Doctor and President of Christian Professional Fellowship (CPF), who made the call, said being good ambassadors required collaborative effort between Parents, school administrators and the staff to build a great institution.
He was speaking on the theme, “Ten years of comprehensive education; our hallmark”.
He advised parents not to see private institutions as belonging to individuals, who are in to make gains, but rather, their efforts should be supported for the benefit of the whole community.
Dr Ntiamoah said parents should collaborate with the founders of the school to build a formidable institution so that that their children and grandchildren would be proud of attending a good school in the community.
This he believed, required a great understanding of the vision and mission of the institution, and encouraged parents to be part of the vision that seeks to train students.
He said most at times people equate good schools to big infrastructure, but the calibre of people who train and teach at the school was very key in the development of children.
The Proprietors of the School, Mrs Georgina Obeng said a lot has been invested to ensure a very conducive environment for the children to attain the best education and moral training.
This she said, had enabled the school to chalk excellent results, through quality education, in the few years of its existence.
The Director of Gloryhills International, Rev. Alex Boakye Yiadom in his speech said, the School over the past years had remained committed to providing the best in education for its students.
He said this is seen in the learning facilities and quality of teachers, as well as the exposure that the school gives to every student.
He explained that the School’s learning facilities have undergone drastic upgrades to meet international standards, adding that, the school had intentionally kept small class sizes to enhance teaching and learning.
The School, which started with one female pupil in 2008, can now boost of 370 pupils, with 200 at the pre-school and 170 at the Primary levels, with a staff strength of 20.
