The President of the Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council Delancy Ama Aya has passionately appealed to government to lift the ban on school sports and entertainment in schools.
Through the course of the global pandemic in the last two years, there has been a ban on school sporting competitions including the inter schools soccer and athletics competitions and all other sporting disciplines. There is also a ban on entertainment in schools.
Reading her Presidial Speech at the 1st General Meeting and Launch of the Silver Jubilee (25 years) Anniversary of the Ashanti Regional Students Representative at Anglican SHS in Kumasi, the Regional President made a passionate appeal to the Ministries of Health, Education and Sports to work together and lift the ban on school sports and entertainment and allow students to have their lives back to normal.
She stated “we call on government to lift the ban on entertainment and sports in schools which has been in force in the last two years since the onset of Covid-19.Many talents in our schools are wasting away due to the ban. They are not getting the platform to showcase their potential to the world.” Yesterday the National Sports Authority announced that our stadia can now take full capacity with adherence to the necessary protocols. We equally appeal to all stakeholders concerned to lift the ban on School Sports and Local Entertainment in our schools to give students the opportunity to harness their potentials. We will adhere to the necessary protocols” she concluded.
Delancy Ama Aya, the Regional President of the ARSRC and a student of KNUST SHS made the comment when student leaders of 123 senior high schools met at Kass to celebrate their 25th Anniversary as a Council.
