The Former Volta President of the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA), Timothy Amaglo Mensah has advised school children to make time and study their books in order to acquire more knowledge to become productive in future.
He asked children to put their minds on books and eschew laziness because a lazy child could not do well in school to become a better person.
They were advised when some National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) executives in partnership with SpreadAid International, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), made donations of 500 exercise books, 250 pens and 150 pencils, food, clothing and 33 reading books to Tongor Agordeke D/A Basic school at South Dayi district in the Volta region.
He entreated children to always have the desire to be in school often to avoid being left behind in studies.
He explained that although sometimes some difficulties led students to drop out of school, it should rather push and encourage them to learn harder.
“It is through education that you achieve what you want to become in future, therefore you can be what you desire if you put your mind to it and focus on your studies”
Timothy Mensah advised all children to always repsect their teachers because it was through teaching and guidance that they would become future leaders and responsible citizens in the country.
The Executive Director for SpreadAid International, Faith Julius Dzagbletey said the donation was to provide easy and quality education to the students because the items would improve upon their studies.
The District Director for National Service (NSS), Daniel Dag-Sosu, for his part, urged students to strive hard to achieve their dreams and not limit themselves to only learning, but rather become who they want to be in the near future.
He cautioned children to pay attention during learning hours and also advised that “anytime you are being punished for a wrongdoing, you should not be angry and say you are disliked by the teacher but rather take heed and learn from it”.
