The Rector of GH Schools, Leslie Addo Listowell, underscored the importance of technical education in this era emphasizing the need for authorities to give it maximum attention.

He stated that technical education is the future of this country and requires the attention of governments and all relevant authorities to make it effective.

Mr. Addo-Listowell made this call during the matriculation ceremony of the new batch of students at GH Schools. The ceremony, held under the theme of “Unleashing Potential, Embracing Possibilities, and Enhancing Performance,” welcomed 774 new students into the five institutions of GH Schools, comprising the Media, Cosmetology, Fashion, Catering, and Technology schools.

According to Mr Addo Listowell, while the government is making efforts through the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training, there is still a need for improved initiatives to make technical training more affordable for everyone.

“Technical education is very expensive very expensive so it’s one of the problems you are facing in our school you have people who will spend all their money on practicals and the funny very difficult to pay fees but they need to do the practicals so I think that is not shunning away but it’s not really doing because it is very expensive but with the CTVET coming to being starting from the secondary schools is helping because now we have Ghana TVET service in place of the Ghana Education Service looking at the technical education and then we also have all the technical universities and the technical institutions under the TVET Service,” he said.

During the ceremony, the Chancellor of GH Schools, Dr. Kofi Osei Kusi, urged the students to make wise decisions that would positively impact their future. He encouraged them to consider the long-term consequences of their decisions before taking any steps.

“Over 90% of your life will be based on your decisions your decisions will determine where you will be tomorrow it was a decision that brought you here and all of us here are where we are today because of the decisions that we have always made. My biggest advice the young people is that you will reach what you saw and your decisions are like seeds that you are sewing everyone you speak is a decision in the seed every time you sit behind your books it’s a decision and it’s a seed every time you do a good thing is a decision and seed and every time we do the wrong thing he said decision and a seat about it challenged you as you have taken the right decision to be here at schools that you continue to intelligently carefully select the decision you will make,” Dr. Osei Kusi noted.

Clifford Ladzekpo, the Director of Academics at GH Schools, spoke on the theme of “Unleashing Potentials, Embracing Possibilities, and Enhancing Performance.” He urged the students to identify and make good use of their potential to achieve better results.

The school also launched Ghana Month with the intention of promoting the cultural diversity of the country through its activities. They highlighted food, clothing, and music as some of the areas in which they intend to promote the cultural values of the country.
