Addressing an educational forum organized to help increase enrolment in local schools, the Divine Wisdom Preparatory School SMC observed that the children were made to cart cocoa beans, food crops from the farms and tap palm wine, instead of being encouraged to go to school.

The committee noted that many parents in the area behaved out of illiteracy and ignorance.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Bosuso in the, the proprietor, of the school, Mr. Awuah, called on parents to instil discipline and good virtues in their children and also monitor and supervise their studies.

Mr. Awuah said since education brought progress and development, he and his wife decided to establish the school to help cater for the children whose mothers normally sent them to farms and the markets.

He said with the establishment of the school, the incidence of child loitering in the community had almost been eradicated.
