Second lady, Samira Bawumia, has visited her the very school she used to attend as a young girl as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations.
The visit of the second lady to Alsyd Academy saw her share words of encouragement with pupils and teachers of the school as she entreated teachers to do their best to ensure the best of teaching and learning is achieved in the basic level education.
According to Samira Bawumia: "If we are to contribute to the intellectual development of the next generation, we must continue to insist on keeping up with best practices, not just nationally, but globally".
Basic education in Ghana remains a constitutional right with government currently rolling out a program to rope in senior high students (SHS) into the free SHS program which is set to begin on October 4th.
The free SHS policy is committed to providing free tuition to over 400,000 students across the country with the full cost of the program expected to be funded by the funds from oil reserves.
