The founder of the Vicar Trust Foundation School has called on Government to support private schools with funding to retain most of the teachers.
According to Mr. Peter Mckeown Anyetei, the founder of Vicar Trust Foundation School said most teachers stopped teaching after COVID-19. This was due to the inability of the proprietors to pay the salaries of the teachers while they were at home. This made the teachers venture into other businesses causing a decreased number of teachers.
Most of these teachers are of the view that it is better to rather venture into businesses than teach and not receive payment at the end of the month. The inadequate teachers in the school have had an adverse effect on the students. This is because the WASSCE and BECE examinations are during near. Mr. Peter Mckeown appealed to government t0 come to the aid of the private schools.
Mr. Mckeown further advised the government to help instill discipline in the students. He said they should be given some military training during their final year in the Junior High School. He further stated that this would make the students better and disciplined citizens.
All these were said during the school’s 4th Annual Speech and Prize-Giving Day and Graduation Ceremony. He said the school has done tremendously well especially with the results. He therefore encouraged parents to enroll their wards in Vicar Trust Foundation School.
