All Hail Kingsley Agyemang, The Dynamic Registrar Of The Scholarship Secretariat, as he promotes quality education in Abuakwa South Municipality

In the quest to improve and enhance quality teaching and learning in Abuakwa South Municipality of the Eastern Region Mr. Kingsley Agyemang, the dynamic registrar of the Scholarship Secretariat has launched various educational activities.

The Scholarship Secretariat Registrar who appears to be loved by the constituents in the municipality first launched what was dubbed as Kingsley Spelling Challenge in September 2021 for 27 primary schools in the area.

He averred that 76 public and private Junior High schools (JHS) will be competing in the Kingsley Maths and Science Quiz while 92 schools will partake in the second edition of the Kingsley spelling challenge for the primary schools.

Mr. Kingsley Agyemang continued that, the six Senior High schools in the municipality will have special encounters with Mr. Kingsley Agyemang and well-resourced mentors and facilitators in life build and carrier maintenance dubbed “time with a Kingsley”.

He added that the Kingsley Maths and Science Quiz is a clear manifestation of believing in the people, identifying talents and nurturing it to make it great for the Nation.

He said have made the Municipality proud and will be leading Abuakwa State College to the National Championships after putting up a splendid display and ensuring a commanding lead in the Regional finals of the National Science and Maths Quiz.

He disclosed that 12 school children and 8 teachers benefited from the program and they were in Dubai for an educational trip.

On her part, the Regional Director of Education Mrs. Margaret Nsiah Asamoah urged the students in the municipality to take their education seriously to enable them to excel in the future.
