Tarkwa- Nsueam marks 59th Independence Day anniversary


Tarkwa (W/R) Mar. 6, GNA – A parade of school children, workers and voluntary organisations on Sunday converged at the Tarkwa Na Aboso Park to commemorate the 59th Independence Day anniversary.

Mrs Christiana Kobinah, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area, said the massive investment made in education has yielded positive results for the municipality.

She cited the 2015 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results as a clear manifestation, saying the Education Directorate presented 2,755 candidates, out of which 2,314 scored aggregate six to 36, representing 84 percent pass.

She said 24 boys and 15 girls scored aggregate six while 238 boys and 204 girls obtained aggregate seven to 15 respectively.

The MCE said last year’s results witnessed a significant improvement over the previous years, stressing that no school in the municipality scored zero percent.

Mrs Kobinah said despite the successes chalked in the BECE, some candidates failed to turn-up to write the examination while some female candidates got pregnant and refused to write their papers.

She called on parents to urge their children to concentrate on their studies to enable them become responsible leaders.

Some candidates who excelled in the BECE and West African Senior School Certificate Examinations were presented with prizes.

Some dignitaries that graced the occasion included the Municipal Education Director, Mrs Veronica Ama Jackson and the Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Paul Ayittey, as well as the Member of Parliament, for the area Mrs Gifty Eugenia Kusi.
