UCC KG Graduates 222 Pupils

The University of Cape Coast (UCC) Kindergarten (KG) School has graduated a total of 222 pupils at the 2017 End of Year Activity and Graduation Ceremony. The graduating pupils received certificates of promotion to class one in the next academic year. The event was organised on the school's compound and was under the theme, "Becoming a Model Kindergarten in Cape Coast Metropolis through Adequate Childcare and Quality Teaching and Learning." The pupils performed cultural dance, poetry recitals, songs and choreography to entertain the audience at the ceremony. Speaking at the function, the Director of Legal, Consular and General Services (DLCGS) of the University of Cape Coast, Mr. Moses Abnory, who doubled as the Guest Speaker, congratulated the graduands on their successful completion of their kindergarten education. He praised the authorities of the school for moulding the lives of the pupils. Mr. Abnory underscored the relevance of education to the development of every nation adding that “it is imperative for parents to support the school to develop the social, physical and psychological needs of their wards”. He tasked the graduands to take their studies seriously so as to occupy higher positions in the country. He advised parents to provide their wards with the needed items and to visit them at school very often to know at first hand the needs and performance of their children. The Director gave the assurance that the University management would continue to assist the School and appealed to parents and old students to support the school in its quest to become a model Kindergarten in the Cape Coast Metropolis, through quality teaching and learning. Delivering her annual report, the Headteacher of the School, Ms. Adwoa Ewur, commended the graduands for their academic excellence. She entreated the graduating pupils to take their lessons seriously so as to enable them aspire to higher levels in life. Ms. Ewur thanked stakeholders for helping in the painting of some buildings in the school, a move which has helped the school to receive a major face lift. She mentioned the issues of perennial water shortage, inadequate play equipment, insufficient security and inadequate lightening as challenges facing the school. She thus appealed to parents and other stakeholders to assist the School with computers, science equipment and the renovation of the school's activity room to enhance teaching and learning. Climaxing the ceremony was a presentation of an award in honour of Ms. Janise Savage, who was retiring from the active teaching from the current academic year. Ms. Savage was honoured for her long service and dedication to duty to the school. The UCC KG currently has a student population of 399, comprising 164 boys and 175 girls.
