The Ministry of Education’s District Education Officer (DEO) assigned to Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, had a special year-end meeting with the parents of our school.
During the meeting, the DEO, Mr. Amos Telio, encouraged the parents to be more involved with the running and improvement of the school, saying: “A school with a strong Parent-Teacher Association is bound to be a good school.”
The meeting was more of an interactive forum where parents were given the opportunity to ask questions, indicate problems affecting them, and suggest ways to improve the school. It was a meeting that benefited both parents and teachers.
At the end of the meeting, Mr. Telio promised that he will have another meeting with the parents in the second week of September, that is, the first month of the new school year.
We are grateful to the DEO for his time, his encouragement and advice to the attendees, as well as for his desire to see the school improve.
