Education Director ranks BISECO most disciplined school in AEED
The Ajumako Enyan Essiam District Education Directorate has taken time to ensure practices in schools are in sync with policies governing the teaching profession. It is for this reason that comprehensive inspection has been mounted in all Senior High Schools under the able supervision of Mrs. Sabina Aba Wilson, District Director?.
A team of 8 officers led by Mr Martin Bekoe rounded up the exercise in Bisease Senior High School on Wednesday, April 21,2021.
During a debriefing session around 4 pm yesterday, Mr Michael Rockson, secretary to the team undressed their observations in the full view of staff of the school.
Areas checked included, but not limited to teachers attendance, pedagogical skills exhibited during instructional hours, administration-teacher-teacher-student relationship, the environment, teachers output of work and students punctuality.
He could not hide their satisfaction for the day.
“Biseco scores highest on our ranking for being the most disciplined school among the five SHS in the district where similar exercise has gone on.”
In reaction to why SHS teachers needed to prepare lesson plans, he clarified, that it was for the teacher’s own good; to stay on track, get the best of activities and teaching and learning materials, get someone to handle a class as perfect as the original teacher, in his absence ” He was emphatic as the core points only give facts, which prepare students for exams.” “We must shift from teacher centred lessons to have the students in focus instead,” he added.
Mr Rockson passed a satisfactory note on adherence of Covid-19 protocols by the rank and file of the school. He climaxed his turn with a plea for all teachers who were in the system before 2018 to register with their details on the NTC platform for the teacher licence
“licensing of existing teachers begins in no time. Teachers must participate by registering on the NTC portal. Government paid for this with the teacher professional allowance, so do not be expecting additional payments.”
Mr. Martin Bekoe, District HR and leader of the team indicated, that integrity, respect for authority and team cohesion are indispensable qualities teachers ought to work on.
“without team work, Biseco will not keep shining. Let’s adore integrity to safeguard our reputation. Respecting authority in this school has contributed to the level of discipline and cooperation we’ve witnessed today.”
District Director of Education, Mrs. Sabina Aba Wilson in her usual humility “I will add my voice to the call for diligence and commitment, our policy ensures that teachers in second cycle schools take a minimum of 18 periods weekly. Only assistant heads are to have 12 periods due to extra duties they may have to perform.”
“You have impressed us with the level of output of work, serenity of environment, and comportment.” she praised.
She urged the staff to follow due procedure in seeking permission to stay away from work, especially when sick.
In his closing remarks, Mr Afari Sackey, head of the school expressed his pride in his colleagues and put before the team a worrying challenge.
“The glory of the palm tree is in its fronds. I’m so glad receiving such comments from the team. Colleagues, until today, many of us may not have an idea how our collective efforts is moving the school forward.”
He praised his predecessors for such precedence he had inherited.
Madam, he continued, ”
We recently visited GES headoffice, introduced ourselves as management of Bisease Senior High School and we were not recognised”
Mr Afari explained. “The school has four different names up there at the Headquarters. Teachers here have been grouped into two on the pay roll. By this medium, we would visit you for directives to acquire at least one of the names we are known for up there.” He concluded.
