Bolgatanga West ‘B’ Circuit Marks 4th Special Independence Anniversary
By William N-lanjerborr Jalulah
The West ‘B’ circuit which comprises of schools within Sumbrungu area for some past years could not travel to the Bolgatanga where the Independence Day is observed yearly, due to the long distance of the circuit from the regional capital.
In order for the school children in the circuit have a feel of the annual anniversary, the then Circuit Supervisor, Mr. Alloy Timothy and his teachers initiated the even on March 5, 2010. Since then, the circuit has been organizing the day for the pupils a day before the actual day – March 6. Just like their counterparts would do on the day itself, pupils in the Bolgatanga West ‘B’ Circuit equally rehearse ahead of time and converge at a school park near the Bolgatanga Polytechnic to take part in a match past.
In her address, the Circuit Supervisor, Ms Victoria Aloni said pupils in the circuit took part in the Under 13 Milo Soccer Boys Competition but were knocked out in the middle of the competition.
Ms Aloni said some of the activities the circuit took part included cultural competition, poetry recital and drum language.
She also regretted that the circuit in the 2012 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) came last out of 10 circuits in the Bolgatanga municipality.
In her own analysis, she said she realized it was because her circuit could not present more candidates as others did but also admitted the circuit has got a peculiar problem. This she named as absenteeism during funerals, market days and raining season.
The municipal Chief Executive for Bolgatanga, Mr. Edward Ayiriba Ayagle called on pupils to take up their studies serious and respect their teachers, the elderly and the society at large.
He also entreated the pupils to be discipline, and eschew negative activities, and shun bad companies in order to occupy higher places in future for the development of the country.
