Proprietress of Mary Summer Preparatory School Mad. Rebecca Ntiriwaa Adebayor in Suhum has called on the government to provide private schools with furniture, teaching and learning material to enhance quality education.
According to her, since most of the private schools in the country contribute their quota to the development of the country and also the wellbeing of the Ghanaian child, there is the need for government to extend support to their doorsteps.
she added that government should not only look up to the public schools extend whatever they give to the public schools to the private ones as well, pleading with the government to institute soft loans for private schools which will help management run the schools in a conductive environment.
Madam Rebecca Adebayor noted that Mary Summer Preparatory School was established in 1990 with eight children and three teachers. Currently the population stands at four hundred and fifty with twenty eight teachers and thirty two non teaching staffs.
Her vision was to help the Ghanaian child in terms of education, at the time of establishment of Mary summer there were not enough school in the District so she took it upon herself to help children in Suhum Municipality for them to come out as good ambassadors of the society.
She elaborated that the school presented ten students to the BECE this year hoping to come out with good grades, and again talking of academic performances the school recorded 16th position in the BECE results last two years and recorded 9th last year in the Suhum Municipality.
According to the proprietress the PTA of the school is really helping since they have been able to get the school computers, poly tanks, some tables and chairs but not enough.
She highlighted their challenges as school fees payment, inadequate computers and furniture, disturbances from commercial drivers since the school is sited along the road.
She urged parents never to neglect their responsibilities in educating their wards and invest in them for a brighter tomorrow.
