This is very nice and simple as well. Am also proud to be a teacher
It's about what u going to teach not what u wear and dont try to be differciated from the kids,you're just a teacher not a better human than them.
Is this necessary huh aaaaawo Ghana while other nation leaders are thinking of ways to better the living of its citizens see what my Pple are doing Wei
One good thing about this initiative is that it will reduce indecent dressings as well as reducing wearing too many nd different dresses to school
Some of the comments from Facebook have been compiled below;
Agbagida Innocent wrote:
If that's a private initiative why do they have Ghana education service written in it?
Joseph K. Amofah replied:
Great initiative. I wish there is a nationwide consideration for the rollout of uniforms for teachers.
Desmond Allotey-Pappoe commented:
Obviously, because any such moves will stir the call the uniform allowance and lead to labour agitations. And this won't be an interest for GES/MOE pursue at this moment.
From Ellenam Foli:
Instead of initiative that will improve their abysmal BECE performance. This what they choose to do
Fredrick Mensah: Ghanaian Teacher Provides Free Uniforms to Students in His School Through Donor
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a Ghanaian teacher at the Mankessim M/A ‘A’ Basic School, Fredrick Mensah, provided some pupils at his school with new uniforms through the help of a donor.
The primary one teacher, who doubles up as a subject teacher in Fante for primary four and five, revealed that the donor was inspired by his relationship with his students.
He mentioned that the donor, who is based outside the country, originally gave cash towards snacks for the pupils but convinced her to approve channeling the cash donation towards new uniforms.
