Anambra Academic Retreat for Head Teachers draws to an end, Government re-introduces handcraft in schools

The academic retreat organized for head teachers has come to an end with the state government re-introducing handcraft and skill acquisition in schools across the state. The Commissioner, Prof Ngozi Chuma Udeh disclosed this while addressing head teachers on the final day of the retreat held at ASUBEB Hall, Awka.

Commissioner Ngozi Chuma Udeh stated that the state will not train pupils who will carry guns to terrorize the state while disclosing the re-introduction of handcraft in schools next academic session. She tasked the head teachers to implement this in schools as the state wants to raise pupils who will contribute positively to the growth of the state by learning a skill that will help the students become self-reliant on leaving the four walls of the school.

The Commissioner enjoined the head teachers to get their schools captured by the state bio-metrics team and uploaded to the portal on or before the end of September. In his remarks, the Chairman, House Committee on Education, Hon. Ejike Okechukwu assured the head teachers of better days while appreciating the teachers’ tenacity and doggedness in educating umu akwukwo Anambra.

Giving the vote of thanks, Mrs Vivian Nwankwo, Assistant Chairman, Association of Primary School Heads of Nigeria, APSHON appreciated the effort the state put into organizing the retreat, adding that teachers have learnt a lot and will deploy the teachings in their schools for the good of umu-akwukwo Anambra.
She also stated that APSHON solidly supports the state’s determination to restructure the educational sector.
