He made these comments when he led a team on tour the three Senior High Schools in the Lawra Municipality.
The spirit of the tour was to get firsthand information on the implementation status of the double track system of the Free SHS.
He was generally impressed with the rate at which first year students were reporting to school and settling down for serious classes.
The accompanying team included the Municipal Coordinating Director, Mr. Mohammed Abdul Majeed, Municipal Director of Education, Madam Theresa Ninnang Song-Aabo, PRO-GES, Hon. Amos Gyetuo and the Communications Office of Lawra NPP.
The Hon. MCE and the Education Director jointly addressed the students at each of the schools. Their speeches emphasized discipline.
“There are no tricks to success, discipline is the only surest tool to educational success" Education Director urged the students
The MCE indicated that it was imperative for beneficiaries of the Free SHS to justify to the world that it is worthwhile for government to invest in its flagship program "Free SHS" by producing quality results at the WASSCE.
He assured the schools of government's commitment to retooling the schools in terms of human resources and infrastructure.
Lawra SHS received 1091 students, Birifoh SHS received 296 students and Eremon SHS/T received 640 students under the CSSPS 2018.
The briefings from the Headmasters shows that a good number of placed students have reported to school and teaching and learning has already started.
The Municipal Chief Executive for Lawra Hon. Bomba-Ire Martin has gone round inspecting some ongoing building/construction projects in Babile.
He commissioned and handed over a newly drilled hand pump borehole to the market women and also inspected progress of work on a water closet toilet for the market, renovation of the general market, the abattoir and the "goat market".
Work on all the projects are moving on smoothly but appealed to the contractor to add another gear and accelerate a bit to complete the project in time.
