Sunyani Business Senior High School has a cadet corps and we recognise its positive contribution to the social and physical development of students and colourfulness. We also agree it could be grounds for abuse and that much education and caution should be attached as reiterated below by Major Frank Kofi Adzazu of the Ghana Armed Forces.
School Cadet Corps Should Comport Themselves
They should rather become an important tool for promoting peace, harmony and orderliness in schools.
Major Adzazu was inaugurating the 70-member cadet corps of the Dompoase Senior High School (SHS) in the Adansi North District. He told them to be disciplined and respectful so as to become good example to their colleague students.
Mr Joseph Kwabena Onyinah, Ashanti Regional Education Director, said the establishment of the cadet corps was helping to build in the young people patriotism, hard work and selflessness.
This, he said, was good for the progress of the nation.
The vigorous training they are receiving is also helping to keep them physically strong and mentally alert, he added.
Mr Onyinah underlined the need for students not only to be trained to acquire academic knowledge and skills but also assisted to maintain acceptable standards of social conduct. He appealed to the students to stay away from acts of lawlessness, vandalism and other bad behaviours.
Mr Abdul Lateef Madjoub, the District Chief Executive, pledged the assembly’s resolve to support the school with some logistics and infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning.
