Nana Nyarkoa Afraso I, Queen of Nyamekrom Traditional Area, has provided teaching and learning resources to the Nana Oware Agyapong M/A Basic School, including text books (60 packs), practice books (600), mathematics sets, and erasers.
The Queen, accompanied by Chief of Nyamekrom Nana Kwame Nnuro Agyapong II, visited the school campus to present the presents.
Nana Afranso, who addressed the students and school officials, stated that the gesture was intended to encourage the students to study hard.
’I decided to share these items to this school to remind the pupils that society is counting on them to do well in school so they could become useful persons in the future’’, the Queen noted.
The Queen advised parents and guardians to support school authorities to give the best of training to their wards.
She expressed concern about the increasing number of parents storming schools to challenge instructors who warned their children about inappropriate behavior.
Nana Afraso believes that rather than fighting school authorities and instructors, parents should work with them to provide their children with the greatest possible training and education.
‘’I have been hearing about how some parents go to schools to fight teachers for punishing erring pupils but I want the people of Nyamekrom and elsewhere to know that the training teachers give to the children is only aimed at shaping them to live responsible lives after school’’, the Queen stated.
Clean up Exercise:
Earlier at the weekend, Chief of Nyamekrom, Nana Nnuro Agyapong II joined the Assembly member, Enoch Boahene as well as residents of the electoral area to clean the streets of weeds and debris.
The residents, numbering over two hundred (200) took turns to weed and desilt some of the choked gutters in the area.
Following the exercise, the Chief praised the Assembly member and the people for demonstrating their dedication to keeping the neighborhood clean and neat at all times.
The Assembly member, on his part, praised the Nyamekrom Chief for taking an interest in community cleaning and sanitation issues, and urged other Chiefs around the country to do the same.
