Osino (E/R), Dec. 6, GNA - The Asiakwa branch of the Save Our Soul Children’s Villages (SOSCV), Ghana ‘Quality Education Now’ Project and the Accra Municipal Education Office have organised a two- day workshop for 50 members of the School Management Committee.
The training was to build the capacity of SMC members and to equip them with the requisite skills to perform their roles and responsibilities in their various schools effectively to help promote quality education delivery in the community.
Participants were selected from public schools across the Municipality.
Topics, such as effective participation of Persons Living with Disability (PWDs) in SMC, presentation and participation of women in SMC, promoting quality learning and teaching were treated.
Speaking at the training, Mr. Samuel Abrokwa Boye, the Asiakwa SOSCV-QEN Project Coordinator said every school needs a vibrant School Management Committee (SMC) and the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) to manage its affairs effectively, hence the workshop.
He added that the SOSCV- QEN was poised to ensure quality education delivery in the locality and therefore would continue to be organising trainings of this kind to help improve quality education delivery in the community.
Mr Abrokwa- Boye urged members to be transparent in managing financial affairs of the schools and advised them to involve communities as they placed crucial roles in the development of every institution.
He was hopeful the programme would go a long way to improve on the skills of the members to help bring development to Schools in the locality and therefore tasked participants to be committed to their duties in order to promote quality teaching and learning.
