The Headmistress of Akropong School for the Blind, Mahela Narh has appealed to parents whose wards are in the school to show more interest in their welfare and education.
She said some parents abandon their wards in the school without visiting to find out how they are doing.
Madam Mahela made the appeal when De Youngster’s International School in Accra donated items worth GH¢38,000 to the Akropong School for the Blind and the Demonstration School for the Deaf at Mampong all in the Eastern Region.
De Youngster’s International School for more two decades has been making donations to the School for the Blind and the School for the Deaf at Mampong. It is to inculcate the spirit of giving into the students.
This year the items include 40 bags of maize, eight bags of gari, 100 loaves of bread, cartons of Milo and Nido, 300 pieces of chocolate and cooking oil.
A student of De Youngster’s International School, Stephanie Asor Asare presented the items which were received by a student of the school for the Blind, Emmanuel Quartey.
The Headmistress of the School for the Blind, Mahela Narh expressed gratitude to the school for the donation. She said it is a government-assisted school but it receives a lot of support from the public.
Madam Mahela urged parents who enroll their wards in the school to pay frequent visits to them and not to abandon them
At Demonstration School for the Deaf at Mampong, the Headmaster, Abraham Yemoson thanked De Youngster’s School for the gesture and urged other institutions to emulate it.
