Dr. Eleanor Naa Norkor Light, a medical doctor has earned the admiration of many as she volunteered to teach a Junior High School pupil who was on admission prepare for his Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
The doctor, who was impressed by the decision of the 14-year-old on insisting to revise his notes while on admission, decided to teach him.
Dr. Light used her free time to take him through some topics in General Science and Mathematics, while calming his nerves with words of encouragement.
Caleb Giftan, a final year junior high school pupil of the Manle Dada JHS, who was put on admission on January 15 at the LEKMA hospital, earned the admiration of the health officer for taking his books to the hospital ward.
Little did he know that he would get a qualified medical doctor to teach him science while on admission.
Caleb’s family had become worried after he started complaining of pain in his left leg one afternoon in November 2018, upon returning from school.
Abdul Salam, elder brother of Caleb, who shared photos of the doctor and his brother on social media, expressed gratitude to management staff as well as doctors and nurses of LEKMA Hospital for their professionalism and dedication to service.
He said, amid several criticisms of Ghana’s health care system, the sacrifice of some workers must not be overlooked since it helped in improving both the physical and psychological well-being of patients.
The Ghana Education Service, in a statement on November 8, 2018, urged heads of basic schools to take notice of the revised date and prepare candidates accordingly.
Over 500,000 registered candidates are expected to sit for this year’s BECE organised by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
