Ghana's Chief of Staff has stated that the newly trained teachers from the Holy Child College of Education in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis of the Western Region are an asset for national transformation.

According to her speech read by the Western Regional Minister Hon. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, the newly trained teachers being an asset for national transformation, perfectly encapsulates the vital role each of them plays in the development and transformation of the country

Hon. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah on behalf of the Chief of Staff, welcoming stakeholders and graduating students to the just ended 2nd Graduation Ceremony by Holy Child College of Education said teachers can instill values of integrity, critical thinking creativity, and compassion in their students, helping them become responsible and engaged members of the society.

Again, teachers possess the potential and power to motivate their students to seek higher education, acquire new skills, and make constructive contributions to their communities by fostering a love for learning and curiosity.

He emphasizes that the newly trained teacher does not just walk into a classroom as a teacher only, but also as a mentor, a role model, and an influencer who has the power to profoundly impact the lives of their students.

The Takoradi MP further stated from the Chief of Staff's speech that all these important things the teacher possesses in the transformational agenda of the nation and has therefore committed to improving the conditions of teacher's training hence ensuring that Ghana's educational system is equipped to foster national transformation.

However, the communities must also be engaged in the education process, valuing and respecting the contribution of teachers, the private sector, and individuals.

The Holy Child College of Education Principal, MR. FRANCIS HULL ADAMS commended the effort of the graduates despite the challenges they encountered during their stay in the college.

However, he is urging the central government to expedite action on the migration of colleges of education staff, both academic and non -academic onto the tertiary salary structure.

This move according to the Holy Child College of Education Principal will at least have the benefit of retaining our highly experienced and quality staff in the system.
