The Chief Executive Officer of Stratcomm Africa, Ms Esther A. N. Cobbah has underlined the need for parents and teachers to instill the value of integrity in the lives of children.
According to her integrity is vital for the wellbeing of the country and there is therefore the need to inculcate integrity in children by setting good example for them to follow.
Ms Cobbah was speaking at the 14th graduation ceremony of the Ladlink School on the theme: “Integrity” in Accra, a statement in Accra by Stratcomm Africa and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) said.
Ms Cobbah commended the founders of Ladlink School for their commitment to invest so much in the upbringing of children and applauded the teachers for their “grooming dreams, nurturing gifts and raising leaders out of the children”.
It said the early stage in life determines the future of every human being and therefore must be given much attention, she said, adding: “Children are the kind of gifts that need careful unwrapping and proper care so that they could fully grow and share what is in them to benefit the world.”
Ms Cobbah advised parents and guardians to exhibit good morals at home, to compliment efforts of teachers in shaping the lifestyles of their children.
“We must recognise that children also learn from things that they are exposed to. As parents and guardians we must therefore expose our children to the right media contents so as to prevent them from misleading characters that may influence intelligent behaviors,” she stated.
The Headmistress of the school Mrs Lady Darfoor said parents and guardians must imbibe discipline and integrity in their children at all times.
Mrs Darfoor expressed the view that, parents must ensure that honesty become a household attitude that children demonstrate at school and everywhere.
The guests and parents were treated to exciting performances such as cultural display, recitals among others by the students.
