he Principal of the Galaxy International School, Secondary Section in Ajiringano, Mr Cafer Tepeli has noted that education does not really mean the teaching and learning that is done in classroom but other activities are included to complement the teaching and learning.
He said this on the occasion of the school’s Intercultural Festival held at school premises in Ajiringano in Accra.
Mr Tepeli said it is for this reason that the Galaxy International School Secondary Section have always been praised by people from different parts of the world and in the country such as government officials, the media.
He said the school is aimed at moulding students physically, mentally, morally and academically so as to fit in society.
He said the school runs two programs which are WASSCE and Cambridge Syllabus with students from 35 countries.
Mr Tepeli noted that for students to be academically excellent, it’s what every parent will wish for his/her child but to him, it isn’t enough for his institution.
He cited that for instance, on Saturday the 7th of March 2020, students will be going for camping on the top of the mountains of Dupe of Edinburgh as their extra-curricula activities where they are going to be cooking and doing other activities for themselves.
“All these that they will be going through is a form of preparing students for the society, their families, the school and the country at large.”
The principal said what sounds good for the school is the low payments of fees demanded by the school from only Ghanaian students even though there are other students from many countries.
He called on others to come and participate in the school’s exams so as to benefit from the school’s scholarship program in May every year.
“Students are given different levels of scholarships to study in his school and abroad depending on their level of qualification. Some 15 students are given 100%, some 70%, some 50% and so on.
Following the discretion of the school and how one confides in the quality of products of the school, Mr Tepeli said the quality of courses, as well as the quality of teachers to take those courses, are first looked at to ensure that quality is delivered to students.
” Students are given more or extra tuition on weekends to make sure that the Syllabus are covered. More so, I have asked teachers to visit student’s houses to hear for the authorities of the school what is happening to them outside the school environment”.
He said he frequently organized a meeting called the “PRINCIPAL’S COFFEE” with parents of the students just to hear what their concerns were.
“All these are done to ensure we have good results as well as good or responsible young people in society.
Just adding to the success of the school with the kind of measures put in place, my school has been involved in quiz competitions where two took part in the Ghanaian Junior Science quiz where they receive bronze medals.”
Mr Tepeli called on all and sundry within Ghana and to bring their wards fora better education and good social life experience.
