She called on the current students embarking on the out programme to discharge their duties with optimum professionalism.
She was delivering a keynote address over the weekend at the grand durbar organized by the college to climax their 9th SRC week celebrations on the theme: Making the Youth important Stakeholders in Governance- Institutional Examples.
She observed that the standard of basic education is gradually falling and it is imperative that teachers rise up quickly to salvage the situation as soon as possible and this responsibility lies on them.
The Principal of the College, Mr Cephas Bodakpui emphasized on the need for students to partake in fun activities such as SRC week celebrations to entertain themselves as the popular adage goes ‘all work and no play makes jack a dull boy’ but was quick to add that students should not forget they are here for academic purposes.
He also used the platform to remind students and stakeholders present of their upcoming golden jubilee celebration in October this year and ask them to prepare adequately towards it.
Mr. Jacob T Tugah, headmaster of Ada Senior High School admonished the students to embrace the teaching profession and be proud as teachers.
“I am a proud man because I am a teacher” he told the students. He explained further that teachers should be proud because parents have entrusted the welfare of their children into their hands and added that they should not let the parents of their pupils down in the discharge of their duties.
Speaking at the durbar, a representative from the GNAT Ada district office, Mr. Napoleon Bonapaf advised the students to view teaching as a profession rather than a stepping stone. He encouraged the students to love the profession because they are not in this profession by accident. He revealed that some of his superiors monitor comments and remarks teachers post on social media and cautioned the students to desist from making derogatory comments or remarks on facebook, twitter, whatsapp etc.
“Some of the directors now monitor teacher s’ posts on social media to form their own perceptions about them so be mindful of the comments and remarks you post on social media” he adviced.
The president of the student representative council (SRC) of the college, Mr. Ernest Akorta thanked all the executives for organizing a successful week celebration and made a passionate appeal to the students to be dedicated and show good attitude.
