The Samira Empowerment and Humanitarian Project (SEHP) has embarked on a Basic Education Certificate Examination revision project where final year Junior high school students are provided with study guides, past questions and the chief examiner’s report to guide them ahead of the BECE exams.
Additionally, teachers who teach core subjects such as English, Core Mathematics, Integrated Science and Social Studies are engaged on diverse ways on how to effectively teach the students to pass the exams.
Under the project, master examiners took the teachers through various topics and areas where students are likely to fall short and how they can improve in those areas.
Speaking at Saltpond in the Mfantsiman Municipality of the Central Region during the engagement with some basic school teachers, the second lady, Samira Bawumiah, indicated that the project is aimed at empowering the next generation of critical thinkers, adding that one of such interventions is the capacity building workshop being organized.
She also indicated that the capacity building workshop will provide teachers, head teachers, and circuit supervisors with a deeper understanding of the core subjects.
“The Samira Empowerment Humanitarian Project has a duty to ensure that children benefit from education in order to be of service to our nation irrespective of their social or financial circumstances. We strive towards empowering the next generation of critical thinkers who can compete globally,” the second lady emphasized.
