GETSA Model School holds 2nd graduation (Saturday, July 24, 2010, spread)

A Family life educator and counsellor, Mrs Flora Sackey, has called on parents to foster friendship between them and their children to ensure that the children do not fall victim to bad influence outside the home.
She said when children had the friendship of their parents, they did not get distracted by outside influence that could jeopardise their future.
Mrs  Sackey made the call at the second graduation ceremony of the Pre-school Department of the GETSA Model School at Lashibi, near Tema.
The school started two years ago with a pupil population of 35 but now boasts 200 pupils, 32 teaching staff and six non-teaching staff.
Mrs Sackey observed that the formative years of children needed a lot of attention because it was at that period  that  they formed  most of their character traits.
She, therefore, advised parents to  invest their time and prayer in the lives of their children, saying, “You can give the children material things but those will not last, but investing your time and prayer in their spiritual life, health and future career will remain in their lives forever.”
According to her, children became confident when they know that they had the support of their parents.
She also advised parents to train their children in environments devoid of animosity because children grew up seeing the image of their parents in others.
“If you are a father, you are the first figure of a man your child sees and the same applies to mothers and so there is always the need for parents to relate to each other in a manner that will not create a negative picture in the minds of the children," she said.
Mrs Sackey also urged parents and guardians to complement the efforts of schools in the education and training of children to enable them to become responsible citizens.
She also asked parents to encourage their children to study seriously and not indulge in any form of social vices that might endanger their future.
In all, 17 pupils graduated from the school, with Zoe Tandoh picking the overall best pupil and the best reader awards.
The pupils thrilled the invited guests with drama, poetry, choreography and memory verse recitals.
