Dr Osei Adutwum, donors and students examining some of the laptops
The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has advised students to be serious with their education as that makes the impossible possible.
Donating 25 laptops by Huawei Ghana to Bosomtwe Girls Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) High School in Bosomtwe, Ashanti Region, the minister assured the students that education can guarantee them a better future.
According to him, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is doing everything in his power to promote STEM education in Ghana. He stated that this is just the beginning in President Nana Addo Dankwa transformation agenda.
He noted that the Bosomtwe Girls STEM school is going to be one of the schools in the country to produce smart students. He added that it does not matter the calibre of student, but once admitted, the institution would do everything to transform the students to be one of the best.
He continued that there is nothing that would prevent one from succeeding in life unless he or she decides not to succeed, stating that “if you are determined to succeed you will succeed.
The only thing that can stop you from becoming the best in the world is you. If you don’t stop yourself, everything is designed for you to succeed.”
He urged students of Bosomtwe Girls STEM High School to focus their mind on their future and stay away from anything that would destroy them.
“Stay away from anything that would be destruction for you. Focus on your future so that your children would have a better future,” he added.
He further cited himself as an example that, even though he experienced financial difficulties during his SHS education, yet he succeeded and so can every determined person succeed in life.
The Director for Public Affairs of Huawei Ghana, Jenny Zhou, in her address emphasised on their continuous support to the government through ministry of education on embarking on a teaching transformation drive to make Information, Communication and Technology very important in school.
This support, she stated, is through strategy of partnership and cooperate social responsibilities with the ministry.
