Frank Annoh Dompreh honours 76 JHS graduates at maiden MP’s best performing BECE students’ awards

The awards scheme recognises BECE graduates who best demonstrated the values that defined and shaped them in their results

Seventy-six students who excelled in the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the Nsawam-Adoagyiri Constituency have been honoured at the maiden MP’s Best Performing BECE Students Awards.

The awards scheme instituted by Mr Frank Annoh-Dompreh, Member of Parliament, Nsawam-Adoagyiri with the Municipal Chief Executive and Municipal Director of Education, Nsawam-Adoagyiri recognises BECE graduates who best demonstrated the values that defined and shaped them in their results.

The awards were the highest honour given by Mr Annoh-Dompreh to graduates who had six ones, seven ones, eight ones and nine ones in the 2022 academic year.

Award winners were presented with laptops, mattresses, scientific calculators, a dictionary and an envelope.

Ms Nancy Aloba Bonsu of Nana Osae-Djan Junior High School who received the MP’s Auspicious award is also listed for the President Independence Day Award in March for the Eastern Region.

Speaking on the theme: “Prioritising Education Impacting Lives and Changing the Narrative”, Mr Annoh-Dompreh narrated that he birthed the award in 2013 after he revisited the past BECE results of the constituents and realised it was not encouraging.

“So in that same year, I organised private classes for the students and from 2013 to 2022, the BECE results from Nsawam-Adoagyiri within the Eastern region has become the best, with us emerging first,” he said.

He urged the students to look beyond the laptops and pursue academic laurels that would bring honour to the constituency.

Mr Annoh-Dompreh implored stakeholders to work together in solidarity towards the better future of students in the constituency.

Nii Okopti Akrong II (Dr), Chief of Ntoaso Traditional Area, said the event not only celebrated students but it pushed the frontiers of education, especially when the theme gave much attention to schooling.

He emphasized the need for digitisation to be embraced to make education a topmost focus in improving learning outcomes.

On her part, Mrs Doris Appiah-Danquah, Acting Regional Chief Inspector NaSIA, called for a collective role among stakeholders in the pursuit of education at all levels adding that there was a need for legislation to regulate the time students allocated to their books even at home to project learning and teaching.

Mr Samuel Otopah-Ntow, Municipal Director of Education, Nsawam-Adoagyiri, lauded Mr Annoh-Dompreh for being passionate about education in the constituency.

While encouraging teachers to keep up the good work in the area of education for academic performance, Mr Opatah-Ntow urged continuing students to emulate their predecessor’s zeal towards education.

Consequently, he advised the awardees to keep up their academic strife at all levels.
