Principal’s First Update

This page is an opportunity for Barnabus, the principal of BCS, to write updates on the what progress the school is making:

The first term of the 2013/2014 academic year began on 17th September 2013 with sixty five pupils and five teachers present. The first day of school started with an opening Assembly and the introduction of our four new teachers who have been recruited on probation. The presence of the teachers caught the attention of the pupils.

The teachers are Akwaboa Albert, Opoku Sarkodie. E, Kayil Keziah and Mensah Mavis.

TeachingDuring the first day back, the pupils were divided into groups and supervised by the teachers. Their task was to tidy up the environment. The academic work started the next day. As usual, the teachers tried to stimulate the pupils by revising with them what they had learnt the previous term.

The second day of the term saw a new dimension. Ten parents came to the school with their wards seeking admissions for their children. Eight of the children were admitted after some reading and oral tests were administered. Four of the parents sought permission for their children to report the following week.

The same day, I received a letter from the Ghana Health Service, asking for permission to come to the School to vaccinate all of the pupils between the ages of 9 months and 14 years against measles.

The following day, September 19th 2013, they came and vaccinated all the pupils who fell within the age range. On the last day of the week, classes continued until lunch. Afterwards, pupils were taken through physical education lessons, since all play and no work makes Jack a dull boy.


The list below shows the current teaching staff at the school.

1.       Otoo Felicia, who teaches Nursery kids. On the reopening day she was not present due to a recent breast cancer surgery she did.

2.       Mensah Mavis, who teaches the KG 1 and 2

2.       Bus Driver started work on 16th September 2013 putting the bus in order for the term.


Sophia in class four threatened to stop attending school if she was not promoted to class five. I met with her and her mother in my office. I made her commit herself to working hard when she enters class five.
