The Asunafo South District Assembly has announced a scholarship package for candidates in the area, who excelled in this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Mr. Christian Oppong Frimpong, the District Chief Executive (DCE), said it would pay for the full cost of the senior high school education of those who scored “six ones”.
He was interacting with candidates, supervisors, invigilators and teachers at the Kukuom Agriculture SHS examination centre during a visit to see for himself how things had gone.
He had earlier toured the Kwapong Presbyterian Primary School, Abuom Roman Catholic Junior High School (JHS), Naketey District Assembly JHS and Sankore SHS A and B centres.
A total of 1,633 candidates, made up of 891 boys and 742 girls from 53 public and private basic schools, wrote the examination in the district.
Mr. Hayford Osei Kwadwo, the District Director of Education who accompanied the DCE, expressed satisfaction with the way the candidates, invigilators and teachers had conducted themselves.
