Ghanaian Teacher Provides Pupils with School Uniforms
Early in September, Fredrick Mensah, a class one teacher, provided six of his pupils with free school uniforms on behalf of a donor.
In a Facebook post, he disclosed that a Good Samaritan named Tenisha Rosand reached out to him after posting about his love for his work as a teacher.
Mensah accompanied the post with photos of his class one pupils.
Meanwhile, a video of Fredrick Mensah hugging, dancing, handshaking, waving, fist and leg bumping with his pupils before entering his class for lessons has gone viral.
Mensah, a teacher at the Mankessim M/A "A" School in the Central Region, added the tension-easing practice of 'class entering greeter' to his special way of welcoming his pupils to class.
The adorable video that has raked in millions of views so far shows him and the students bonding in a heartwarming way before entering his class.
