Community Education At Pokuase Methodist 1
On the 1st of February, 2013, parents of Pokuase Methodist “1” Primary School were invited to the school, for a Community Education programme.
The programme started at 9.30 am, with a prayer by a parent. The head teacher after welcoming the gathering discussed the issue of reading difficulties in the school with the gathering. He told the gathering about the purpose of the meeting. He then continued to draw parents’ attention to the Vision and Mission statements of the school and what the school is doing to achieve its mission.
The Coach introduced to parents the OLE project and what it seeks to achieve. She then took parents through the benefits of the project to the pupils, the school, the community and the nation at large. Parents were also made aware of what OLE is giving to the School in support of the project. Parents were encouraged to support the project to be successful.
When parents were allowed to ask questions, they totally embraced the project. Sixty four (64) parents attended the programme. Immediately after the programme, a parent expressed the interest of withdrawing her son from another school to Pokuase Methodist due to the information she had just gotten about the OLE project. In all the meeting was successful.
