Additionally, the MP also gave each of the first batch of 30 beneficiary students mattresses and promised to continuously support them while in school, track their academic progress till they complete in fulfilment of the bigger plan to ensure they progress to tertiary institutions to pursue various science and engineering-related courses.
Thomas Ampem Nyarko told the media, “earlier today I met some BECE graduates with their parents drawn mostly from deprived communities within my beloved Asuogyaman District. These are among pupils who have performed creditably and have gained admission to further their education at the various Senior High Schools across the country. The meeting was to congratulate them for their distinguished performance in their examination and to encourage them to do even better in their various Senior High Schools”.
The MP added “as part of my efforts to reduce the financial burden on the parents, I gave them Trunk boxes, Chop boxes, Mattresses and Provisions. I also pledged to follow up on them regularly even in their various schools, to monitor their performances and support them until they finish their second cycle education”.
The Asuogyaman MP has over the years since becoming an MP, provides hot meals every day to thousands of BECE candidates whenever sitting for their exams.
