|The Principal|| |
The Enchi College of Education (ENCHICO) in the Aowin District of the Western Region has matriculated 170 fresh students for the 2012/2013 academic year.
Madam Victoria Aidoo, Principal of the College in matriculating the students said the purpose of the ceremony was to formally welcome the fresher’s and accept them as students and junior members of the institution.
She said the admission board received about 1,650 applications out of which 170 applicants comprising 110 males and 60 females were offered admission as per the college’s quota.
“As we admit you as junior members of the college, you must count yourselves blessed and very fortunate. Many are those out there who had wanted this golden opportunity but did not get it,” she indicated.
Madam Aidoo admonished the freshers to set very high academic and moral standards for themselves and remain focussed to their dreams.
“The nation is constrained with inadequate human resource base in the educational enterprise and you must never relent in your efforts to achieve this national goal for a better future,” she added.
The Deputy District Coordinating Director of Aowin, Mr. Ibrahim Yakubu delivering a speech on behalf of the District Chief Executive, Mr. Oscar Ofori Larbi said, the government has re-affirmed its commitment to ensure that quality teacher education in Ghana was given a boost adding that it was against this background that the government has resourced all the 38 colleges of education in the country including the Enchi College of Education.
He therefore advised the fresh students to take the advantage of the opportunity given them by taking their lessons seriously, setting high personal standards and remaining disciplined.
“The country needs your service in every community so it is incumbent on you to develop the culture of commitment and dedication so that having gone through this programme of study, you would be able to deliver regardless of wherever you should be posted, he added.
