Parents asked to reduce burden on pupils

Ho, July 9, Ghanadot/GNA - Parents have been advised to lighten the burden of household chores on their wards, especially those about to take major examinations and motivate them to be studious.

Mr Joy Akpebu, a Circuit Supervisor at the Ho Municipal Directorate of the Ghana Education Service gave the advice at an assessment meeting of teachers, parents and final year students of Kabore School Complex Junior High School in Ho on Tuesday.

The meeting, an annual affair on the school's calendar enabled parents to see their wards' academic standing and together with the teachers adopt a common position to fine tune them for the Basic Education Certificate Examination.

Mr Akpebu observed that many academically poor pupils, who received moral and material support from their parents, were able to rise to become the best when they came to terms with their situation and resolved to turn things around.

He therefore urged parents to apply every resource at their disposal to sharpen the competitiveness of their wards in the increasingly challenging academic environment.

The Headmaster of the School, Mr Fred Akpah, said too many extra classes, contrary to helping students to prepare adequately for their examinations, rather denied them enough time to study.

He urged those students who did not appear to have been doing well to see their current situation as a challenge to put in more effort because some of their predecessors in similar situations emerged tops in the BECE once they became focused.
