The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), on Tuesday embarked on a nationwide campaign on the Citizenship Week Celebration slated for May 26-June 2, based on Discipline and Moral Education in a total of 6,000 schools throughout the country.


Speaking at the La-Nkwantanang Cluster of Schools in Madina, the resource person, Mr. Francis Normanyo, a lecturer from the Dominion University, said discipline bad broken down in schools, and that it was the duty of the NCCE to visit schools to educate the pupils and students on Disciplined Citizenship.

Mr. Normanyo said whoever failed to obey laid down regulations, was indiscipline.

He gave examples as going to school late, littering school compound with unwanted materials, not doing one’s homework, stealing and pilfering, disrespect for teachers, colleagues and the elderly in society, impregnating females in the schools, and urinating indiscriminately.

The others, he said, were attending nature’s call anywhere, cheating, smoking of indian hemp/Cigarettes, dressing by exposing certain features of the body.
Mr. Normanyo pointed out that those who lived to become good citizens normally faced a barrage of challenges, and therefore appealed to the students to be bold and resolve whatever challenges they may face.

He also warned students not to shun their parents whenever they rebuked them for wrongdoings but to approach them tactfully and respectfully.

He advised the students to lead morally good lives, in order to grow into responsible adults for the betterment of our country.

The Deputy Chairman of Programmes of NCCE, Mr. Samuel Akuamoah, also spoke on discipline to other students’ gathering. In an interview with Ghana News Agency (GNA) said there were about 40 schools under the La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Assembly that would be covered in the exercise within the period.

Mr Akuamoah donated boxes of biscuits and drinks to the schools which was sponsored by LaNMMA.

Plastic bangles with the inscription “Be disciplined” and ” Arise and Shine for Ghana” were also distributed to the students.
