Gomoa West MP storms Apam SHS as “visiting tutor”

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Gomoa West, Mr. Richard Gyan, has spent two weeks at the Apam Senior High School as a “visiting tutor” where he taught the Form 2 business students Financial Accounting and Economics.

The initiative, which largely concentrated on the correction of errors and suspense account, market structures and the revenue concept respectively, provided the students with some variety in their studies.

It further provided them with practical insights and real-world examples to make the learning of these subjects more meaningful and practical.

He told The Chronicle that the rationale behind the visit was meant to inspire, counsel and motivate the students of this Alma Mater, as well as to acquaint himself with other challenges on campus and become abreast with the best way to fix them.

“This move was aimed at affording me the opportunity to learn at first hand, the challenges our hardworking teachers, school administrators and the students faced,” he said.

Mr. Gyan, who taught as an untrained teacher immediately after his High School education, became a professional teacher by obtaining a first degree in BEd psychology majoring in accounting and economics.

The MP, who has studied for MSc in Accounting and Finance, described his short stay in his former school during the Parliamentary Recession period as an uncommon privilege.

“The excitement, eagerness and display of real thirst for knowledge demonstrated by the students were truly inspiring, and I am confident that with such enthusiasm, they will achieve great heights in their academic pursuits and beyond,” he said.

He, therefore, expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the management of the school for the warm reception and incredible hospitality accorded him during the period.

He was overwhelmed by the extremely commendable level of commitment and dedication that have been invested in shaping the future of the students for national development.

He recounted that the efforts would ensure that Apam Senior High School would remain a place of choice for the provision of quality education and character development.

He admitted that though he regularly visited the school, his two weeks stay with the staff and students has been a huge eye opener as it afforded him the opportunity to have a feel of the challenges faced by the school.

He added; “I must confess that to say that I am impressed with the conduct and sacrifices of the staff of the school will be an understatement…I salute management and all the staff, both teaching and non-teaching.”

He promised to hold necessary engagements with all relevant stakeholders in the coming days to help find solutions to all identified challenges in the school to enhance quality teaching and learning.
