Mr Eric Nuamah Ampofo, Assistant Director of Education in the Asene Manso Akroso District has urged parents to monitor their children to follow the Ghana Learning Radio Programme presented by Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) on Monday to Saturday, to improve their academic standards during their stay at home.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) in collaboration with GBC and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) initiated the Ghana Learning Radio Programme this year, to cater for pupils at basic one-three, which includes storytelling and games.
Mr Ampofo gave the advice during a Social Auditing programme organised by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) at Batabi in the Asene Manso Akroso District, in the Eastern Region.
Mr Maxwell Botwe Nkansah, District Director for NCCE said, the Social Auditing helped the citizens to identify the most pressing needs of their communities and be part of the solutions to facilitate development.
Barima Oppong Kyekyeku II, Chief of Batabi said, the town was in dire need of a Community Health Planning Service (CHPS) compound to lessen the burden of the people in the community who travelled long distances to access health care in other town.
Later, a five – member Social Auditing Committee was inaugurated and tasked to work hard to ensure that the CHPS compound was established.
