Speaking at the 11th Junior Secondary School Valediction and 29th Kindergarten Graduation of the school, he said for the BECE participants, this is a relevant point in their lives, as they transit into SHS, and it is his hope that they will continue to use the philosophy of the school as their guide.
He commended the parents, and thanked them for choosing Oddarene Christian School. He encouraged them to exercise patience when school fees issues arise and pleaded with them to be involved in the education process, rather than just paying the fees and not worry about their education.
Mr. Addo also commended the staff of the school for their love and dedication in grooming the kids. He announced that there would be innovative packages for the staff and parents.
He further announced that from next academic year, there would be the modification and reactivated ‘Directors Award’, which entails exceptional students who get 90% in all subjects all year to travel with any of the directors to a country outside Ghana for a week or more.
He also urged Oddarene students not to stop studying during the holidays and watch less TV, but continue to showcase the values of the great school.
Two students, Precious Koranteng and Afi Amenya were rewarded as Best Students, while Mr. Amavi Akakpovi, a teacher and Madam Jennifer Annan who maintains tidiness in the school were also honoured for their service.
