Cherryfield Montessori Sch marks 10th Anniversary

Speaking at the 10th Anniversary of the school including Graduation, Speed and Prize-Giving Day at Pokuase ACP Estate Junction within the GA West Municipality, Chief Executive Officer of Cherryfield Montessori School Magdalene Dzifa Adzanu “stressed on the impact of digital technology on the young learner: The role of all stakeholders”.

The anniversary celebration was characterised by the 8th Graduation, Speech and Prize-Giving Day amidst choreography, talents and cultural displays. Some graduands and members of staff were awarded for having distinguished themselves in their field for the progress of the school.

Contributing to the debate, former Dean, University of Ghana School of Public Health and Clinical Epidemiologist Prof. Fred Newton Binka who was the Guest of Honour during the occasion urged owners of schools to deploy advanced technology and robust systems to meet global standards. According to him, modern technology has taken the world by the storm and book runners of schools be prepared to take advantage of it to improve learning outcomes.

The former Vice Chancellor, University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) Prof. Binka noted that “This a well-organized School, this should be a model school. The seems to have a good environment, good faculty, they are also engaged in physical education programme, what they need now is to improve digital technology. That’s where the world is going. Anybody who gives excuses about the digital technology, is only marking time. The world is moved on and that’s part of our lives. We need to develop contents and this is well-packaged”.

Prof. Fred Binka has also urged West African Examination Council to deploy advanced technology and robust systems to prevent exam malpractices. His appeal follows widespread examination malpractices recorded in the ongoing 2023 WASSCE exams where 86 mobile phones were seized from candidates.

For Prof. Binkah, “Exam malpractices are the way to stop us from going forward. The other way around is the if the technology of WAEC is advanced, good and robust enough, candidates should be answering different questions known as serialising. Technology allows us to control and prevent malpractices”.

Clinical Epidemiologist Prof Fred Binka has also attributed the phenomenon where health professionals are leaving Ghana to greener pastures to the high rate of graduate unemployment. According to him, situation where graduate stay at home for two years after school without employment due to government’s inability to absorb health professionals is part of the brain drain.

Present at the occasion was Lawyer Betty Mould-Iddrisu, former Attorney General and Minister of Justice who served as the Guest Speaker. The acknowledged the need for parents to play critical roles as facilitators in their wards’ education and careers. She believes the combination of discipline, history, language, creativity, arts and culture identity forms integral part of the human life.

The former former Education Minister, University of Ghana School of Law Lecturer and Global Expert in Intellectual Property Law Betty Mould-Iddrisu hower wants West African Examination Council (WAEC) to build strong infrastructure that prevent recurring exam malpractices recorded in various exams.
