One of the leading private schools in the Greater Accra Region, Crown Prince Academy has once again released another batch of graduates into the world.
The school, which boasts of a state-of-the-art pre-school department up to Junior High School churned out 87 graduates bringing 859, the number of students the school has educated since 2004.
The Headmaster of the school, Mr. Joseph Appiah Addo admonished the graduates to make an impact in their communities and the nation as a whole saying, “What people are remembered for is the number of souls one helped, the community one affected, the impact on made in his country and the positive values one held.”
The keynote address, which was delivered by Chief Godfred Noble Medicine was under the theme, “Education- Developing caring hearts and critical minds.”
He advised teachers to “cultivate the habit of caring for children,” adding that, “parents should also act as role models for their children.”
In her graduation address, the Managing Director of the school, Madam Susanne Prince-Boateng reminded policy makers and stakeholders in the education sector that they will be judged rightly or wrongly by posterity if the decisions they took did or did not benefit the country in the future.
“Let your decision taking and blueprints be comprehensive enough so as to link the Education Sector to the country’s sustainable development; where every child has an equal opportunity to realize his/her potential so as to contribute his/her quota to the development of the economy,” she stated.
Her advice to the graduates was taken from the Bible verse, Matthew 7:7-8 which read, “Ask and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocked, it shall be opened,”
The chairman of the occasion, Dr Anthony Aubynn, in his closing remarks charged the fresh graduates to “throw away friendships and networks that were not productive and become worthy ambassadors of the school.”
