WES Education minister, Grace Apollo challenge teachers to offer quality services
The Western Equatoria State Minister of General Education and Instruction, Grace Apollo, is calling on tutors to ensure they offer quality education to students.
Apollo asserted that providing students with the best instruction would meet the country’s goal of imparting life skills to the future generation.
“Our children need quality education. I am pleading with teachers to provide that quality education for their better future,” Apollo said while conducting school inspection tours.
She was on a tour of Nkopungo, Yabongo, and Nabima primary and nursery schools to learn more about the difficulties affecting education in the area.
Apollo also called on pupils to respect authority and focus on their classes in order to achieve their academic dreams for a better future.
While the government reaffirmed its commitment to providing the necessities to establish a suitable teaching and learning environment, she lamented that instructors need to dedicate themselves to providing high-quality education.
“You are here to learn, and I encourage you to concentrate on your education and take it as your key to success,” she added.
The head teacher of Nkopungo Nursery and Primary School, Adam Gabriel Modi, highlights the significance of government assistance for the education sector and adds that education will not be of high quality without it.
He said that the country’s educational system wouldn’t be the same as it is now if the government paid more attention to education.
Modi further revealed that his school has so far enrolled 902 students for both primary and nursery this year.
President Salva Kiir announced early this year that the government would be providing free primary education to all students.
