Six Ghanaian Students Shine In India

Six students of the Good Shepherd Educational Institute in Techiman, in the Brong Ahafo Region, participated in an international Practical Science competition organized by IKEN Scientifica in collaboration with Orchid Education, UK, and Mexus Education, India, which took place in Mumbai, India.
They excelled and brought honour to the school in particular and Ghana in general.
Other countries which took part in the competition were Ethiopia, Egypt, Kuwait, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Yemen. Co-incidentally, all the six students who were chosen to take part in the competition happened to be students of Good Shepherd Educational Institute.
The students who participated in the competition were Desmond Frimpong Yeboah, Kenneth Agyemang Boapong, Nicholas Clinton Sarfo, Bertha Akonu Gyanfua, Lady Odikro Dede and Priscilla Boahen.
The programme which is organized annually and supported by the Ghana Education Service is aimed at boosting science education in the country.
Competitors were asked to undertake case studies analysis on how to build a lift, catapult, mechanical vibrator sieve and other social issues such as criminal investigation.
At a colourful ceremony organized by authorities of the school to welcome the students, the Assistant Municipal Director of Education in Techiman, who also chaired the function, took the opportunity to commend the proprietor of the school for the excellent performance of students from the school in the BECE over the years and urged him to do more to uplift the standard of education in the Techiman Municipality.
He also paid a glowing tribute to the school’s teaching and non-teaching staff for their untiring efforts and encouraged them to keep the fire burning.
He also challenged parents to make education a priority and stop using their hard earned monies in buying expensive funeral clothes and other luxurious items. According to the Assistant Director, education was priceless and as such parents and guardians should not waver in their responsibility when it came to the education of their children.
The Proprietor of the school, Adjei Kuffour, who introduced the students to the audience, seized the opportunity to thank the Ghana Education Service and parents for their massive support and appealed to them to keep on supporting the school so that it could continue to deliver excellent services to the students.
He said at a point in time when the school was asked by the organizers of the competition to pay $300 as registration fee, it became a headache, but by the grace of God the school authorities were able to scale the hurdle for the six students to travel to India to participate in the competition.
