When the Edusei Foundation in partnership with the National Catholic Secretariat held their Accra Youth Workshop for 2015 last Saturday, Christ The King Parish Hall came alight. Over four hundred students including JHS, SHS, and tertiary students drawn from all the Prishes in the Accra Area trooped in and patiently waited for their turn at the three registration tables.
Once inside the hall, they were given Jotters and pens with which to take notes. After all the attending students were seated with their writing materials in hand, the event started on schedule at 9:30am.
That was Rev Father Ocran, Asst Parish Priest, Christ the King Catholic Church in an interactive presentation on Moral Education. Edusei Foundation’s Jermaine Nkrumah followed it up with an in depth presentation on the power of positive thinking during which students volunteered their personal challenging experiences to which fellow students offered positive solutions
After that there was a short break for snacks, which according to later student feedback, went surprisingly orderly. The students were treated to a competitive game to prop up their adrenaline again due to the detailed nature of what followed next. After all that fun came the breakout sessions.
- Information Technology,
- Entrepreneurial Studies
- And finally Business Studies
The students were not economical with their candid feedback, which was overwhelmingly positive especially given the presence of one of Ghana’s premier movie stars Prince David Osei. The awards ceremony entailed each student receiving a certificate for participation, an Edusei Foundation Lacross Shirt, and a takeout lunch pack. They were all then captured in a group picture that climaxed what one student called the most productive day of her life.
