A teacher trainee embarks on a sensitization program for JHS 3 candidates in his municipal.
A level 200 teacher trainee who doubles as the general course rep for Enchi College of Education by name Duku Gideon Mensah, affectionately called Professor Benevolent has embarked on a sensitization program for BECE candidates in Bibiani Anhwiso Bekwai Municipal, precisely Sefwi Bekwai in the western North Region of Ghana.
The said event took place from Monday 22nd to Sunday 28th March 2021.
In his quest to educate the BECE candidates on what they must know before entering a second-cycle institution, he moved from one school to another to carry out such an initiative.
He advised all B.E.C.E candidates to, first of all, know themselves, what they want to become in the future, and the courses they must study to achieve their aim.
He further stated that JHS3 Candidates should not allow themselves to be influenced by peers and family members to choose courses that they can not do. The idea was welcomed by all the schools he visited and were very happy to hear that.
The teacher trainee continued his sensitization program for the week and on Friday, 26th March 2021, he was invited by the Morning Show host of Lord Fm 107.1, Kwame Kontoh Boateng to extend the sensitization to other places where he was not able to go.
He explained things clearly to the understanding of the people, especially the JHS 3 Candidates.
The week-long sensitization program ended on Sunday, 28th March 2021 with a thanksgiving service held at IGGC, Salvation Temple, Sefwi Bekwai.
