The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has donated educational resources to two underprivileged communities in the Western Region for use in the teaching and learning of 50 Early Childhood and Basic School students.
The recipients—25 from Bosomdo in the Shama District and 25 from Wassa Amenfi—received new school uniforms, bags, boots, and exercise books to ease the burden on parents during this new academic year and brighten the faces of these children, some of whom had never worn uniforms to school or had to be in ragged clothing.
The GNAT, was also constructing two
classroom pavilions for students in the Kweku Bosea D/A Primary School in the Bia District in Western North Region to help accommodate the learners who were in a dilapidated structure, which impacted negatively on the teaching and learning in the school.
Reverend Isaac Owusu, the National President of GNAT speaking at the Launch of the GNAT Week Celebration in Takoradi in the Western Region said it was prudent to institute a “GNAT WEEK” to sensitize the teeming members on the activities of the Association, and to usher them into the mood of celebrating the World Teachers Day.
The 2023 Word Teachers Day celebration is under the theme: “The Teachers We Need for the Education We Want: The Global Imperative to Reverse the Teacher Shortage.”
Every year on October 5, we celebrate teachers. It’s a day when education across the globe is evaluated, teacher problems are examined, and solutions are suggested.
According to the President of GNAT, educators must be recognised for their skills and contributions to the development of nations’ human resources.
The 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation outlines the duties and rights of teachers as well as the global requirements for their education, hiring, and employment practises.
Additionally, it contained requirements for the learning environment, teaching logistics, student and pupil safety, teachers, and all other support personnel.
In order to support teaching and learning, particularly in underprivileged communities, Reverend Owusu stated that the GNAT would continue to donate its fair share.
A radio broadcast, candlelight march, and open forum took place before the Launch of the Week.
