A number of girls who are expected to write the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the Komenda–Edina-Eguafo Abrem District have delivered and some who are pregnant have stopped attending classes.

Mr. Gabriel Gademor, the District Director of Education, has
appealed to the girls to attend classes to enable them write their
examinations which start on April 11.

Mr. Gademor said since the girls had been registered, they should
feel free to go and write the examination. He was addressing about 72 basic school teachers recruited from the district to give extra classes initiated by Dr. Joseph F. Annan, the Member of Parliament, in collaboration with the District Director of Education for 1,200 final year students in the district.

In an address read on behalf of Dr. Annan, who is also the Deputy
Minister of Trade, he commended the teachers for their dedication to
duty and appealed to the students to learn hard to enable them pass
with good grades.

He said students who perform creditably would be awarded
scholarship to Senior High School.
