The Akatsi North District Assembly in the Volta Region in collaboration with its district education office has rewarded hard-working teachers and non-teaching staff as part of efforts to improve the standard of education in the district.

The initiative dubbed Akatsi North Best Teacher Awards was introduced in 2018 in line with the National Best Teacher Prize. The District has since seen transformation in its educational system.

The Akatsi North Best Teachers Awards since its inception has enhanced the academic performance of students in the district. It is particularly focused on motivating teachers to provide quality training to ensure that students perform better especially in Mathematics, Science and Information Communication Technology subjects.

This year’s awards saw the three best teachers in Senior High and Basic Schools in the area receiving awards comprising chest freezers, smart televisions and citations. Hard-working non-teaching staff were also rewarded.

The District Chief Executive for the Akatsi North, Dr Prince Sodoke Amuzu noted that the district has recorded 100 percent pass mark since the introduction of the award scheme compared to abysmal performance by students in previous years.

He said the Assembly will not relent on its efforts to enhance the standard of education in the remote district and urged teachers not to lose their guard.

The Member of Parliament for Akatsi North, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe who is a ranking member on Parliament’s Education Committee commended organisers of the programme and pledged his support towards any move geared towards improving education in the area.

The Best District Basic School Teacher, Saviour Vikpornu called for more support for especially basic schools and teachers in the country saying that there will be a total transformation in the country’s educational sector if government invest more in early childhood development.
