The youth have been advised to take advantage of the numerous educational and training programmes instituted by government to enhance their development as well as contribute meaningfully to national development.
Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle Constituency, Nii Armah Ashitey, at the 15th graduation ceremony of the Young Women Christians Association (YWCA) over the weekend reminded the youth of their role in the socio-economic development of the nation.
About 103 students graduated from Fashion, Home Management and Secretarial courses and were awarded with diploma certificates.
Reverend Theophilus Addy, the Principal of YWCA, stated that in line with government’s vision of making technical and vocational education as the bedrock of the nations development, the YWCA schools have begun to put in place the appropriate changes to meet requirements of the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) reforms, and all courses currently run by the schools are ICT integrated.
He mentioned that one of the major challenges that have confronted the schools over the years is the irregular and non-payment of tuition fees.
“It is surprising to note that students or parents are able to find money to pay for examination fees but not tuition fees,” he stressed.
Reverend Addy emphasised that the school depends solely on the modest fees it charges the students to run its programme, and if the fees do not come in, the school won’t be able to upgrade its facilities, training material and human resources, which will certainly pose a great challenge to private TVET providers such as YWCA of Ghana.
He congratulated the graduates and wished them the best in life, and further urged them to exhibit exemplary qualities of leadership, perseverance, morality and truth in all their dealings.
Various prizes were presented to the overall best students in each school and well- behaved student.
The 15th graduation ceremony of YWCA was under the theme ‘Bold and Transformational Leadership.’
