The Coordinator of Early Childhood Education at the Adentan Municipal Education Office,Mrs Durowaa Amponsah-Mensah has advised parents to show more interest in their children’s education.
This is because it is the best legacy parents can bequeath to their children and also the surest way to success.
She said this during a Reading festival at Flobar school in Accra.
The Flobar School which is located in the Adentan Municipality was established in 1993 by Madam Florence Osei Ampomah, a retired Educationalist with one pupil. Currently, it has a population of 468 from class one to JHS three.
Since its establishment it has trained a lot of people who are in responsible positions in and outside the country.
To help pupils and students in the school to overcome reading challenges it instituted the festival and this is the maiden one.
The Executive Director of the Flobar School, Mrs Sandra Ama Addico said the focus of the festival is to ensure that all the students acquire the habit of reading.
She said according to research students who read their books 20 minutes a day are able to top their class. Mrs Addico therefore appealed parents to encourage their children to read their books.
The Adentan Municipal Chief Executive, Nii Noi Adumoa asked students not relegate the mother tongue to the background in their effort to learn English. He said although English is the mode of instruction, the local language helps students to understand their work better.

Mr Adumoa appealed to Ghanaians to change their attitude towards waste disposal saying it is better to segregate the rubbish that are generated for the plastic to be recycled. This will help the country to deal with the sanitation challenges facing the country.

The Coordinator of Early Childhood at the Adentan Municipal Education Office, Mrs Durowaa Amponsah-Mensah appealed to parents to always monitor their children’s progress in school to enable them to benefit from their investment.

She said it is not good for parents to dump their children in school for only the teachers to take care of them adding that taking care of children is a shared responsibility between parents and teachers.

She asked the children to adopt reading habit to enable them to achieve their aims in life.
