Cape Coast, July 7, GNA - Dr David Essaw, a Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Development Studies of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), has admonished parents to inculcate effective time management and consciousness in their children.

Quality time management, he noted, was essential for personal development and career success in the upbringing and transition of children into adulthood.

Dr Essaw made the call Thursday, during the third Speech and Prize Giving Day celebration of the Abura T.I Ahmadiyya Basic school 'A' at Abura in the Cape Coast Metropolis.

The ceremony was used to raise funds to buy computers and accessories to stock the school's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) laboratory to promote the study of the subject.

Speaking on the theme: “Investing in the education of our children: The role of the parents”, Dr Essaw further advised parents, especially Muslims to respect and uphold the views of their children.

He described education as a catalyst for the development of the individual and the nation, hence it was imperative for Muslims to prioritise the education of their children for rapid development to safeguard their future.

To this end, he charged patents to invest their resources into the education of their children to help bridge the poverty gap in society.

“As parents, you must show dedication and commitment towards the education of your children. You need to support them physically, emotionally, and financially for their intellectual development”.

“Protect your children from bad and negative influences and provide all their needs especially, educational needs,” he added.

In a speech read on her behalf, Mrs Barbara Asher Ayisi, the Deputy Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for Cape Coast North Constituency, commended the Ahmadiyya Mission for their efforts in promoting education in the country.

She said the Mission’s efforts fell in line with the government’s desire to make education accessible to all and urged stakeholders to support the Government in making education accessible to all.

Madam Hameeda Haruna-Appiah, Headmistress of the School, complained about activities of residents who had turned the School premises into their places of convenience and called for support to fence the school for improved security.

She said the School had achieved high academic performance over the past years and called on all relevant stakeholders to support the School in diverse ways to maintain its academic excellence.
