Acting Principal of Presbyterian Women’s College of Education (PWCE), Mrs. Cynthia Anim has admonished newly admitted students of the College who were matriculated on Saturday, 6th February 2020 to be modest in all that they do.
About 700 qualified candidates applied for admission to the Presbyterian Women’s College of Education (PWCE) and out of this number, only 386 candidates were admitted. 193 students opted for Primary Education, 112 for Early Grade Education and 81 students opted for the JHS Education.
Presbyterian Women’s College of Education established in 1928 by the Basel Missionaries aims to be the pacesetters in training of professional female teachers for basic schools in Ghana.
The Acting Principal, Mrs. Cynthia Anim in her address stated that “Teaching is a noble profession. You are therefore going to be mentors or role models. People are emulating your good example. As Female Teachers your role is also very crucial. The community will be looking up to you and the children you teach too will look up to you. You therefore need to be modest in all that you do”.
She further added that “You need to be disciplined, studious, committed, and dedicated to your work and protect the image of the teaching profession and again keep the image of the College high”.
Present to grace the occasion was the Special Guest of Honour, Professor George Kankam, a lecturer at the University of Education – Winneba, Central Region.
In his goodwill message, Prof. Kankam charged the new students to burn the midnight candle to come out with flying colours as four (4) years was just a short spell of time.
He explained that the students had been initiated into the teaching profession and that they did not err at all to have chosen such a noble art.
He encouraged the entrants in their quest to seek academic excellence in the field of teaching as other professionals such as doctors, lawyers, engineers, and many others had all confessed that without teachers, they could not have been where they are today.
