The University Basic School Cadet, led by Penuella Maame Serwa Abrefi Addae, Parade Commander
The University Basic School (UBaS), on Friday, 24th June, 2022, organised talent shows for students of the Basic School at the University Auditorium, as part of activities scheduled for the celebration of the University’s 70th Institutional Anniversary, to showcase their talents. There were a variety of talent shows from the Pre-School, Lower and Upper Primaries as well as the Junior High School.
The students engaged in various performances including drama, poetry recitals, choreography, Science experiments, musical rendition, runway pageantry, cultural display, and a ceremonial parade and drill display by the UBaS Cadet.
Inspection of Parade by the Vice Chancellor, Prof Richard K. Amankwah
The Vice Chancellor, Prof Richard K. Amankwah, who was the Special Guest for the programme, expressed his satisfaction with the staff and students of the Basic School for putting together such an educative and entertaining programme. Prof Amankwah counselled the students to approach studies with seriousness and determination to achieve their goals and advised against engaging in activities that will distract them from their studies. “All work and no play makes one dull, yet as students, desist from engaging in social media activities and indecent websites”, he cautioned. Prof Amankwah further advised the students to rather watch more educative television programmes to improve their cognitive abilities.
The Vice Chancellor mentioned that there are plans to increase student enrolment at the Basic School, hence, the reconstruction of a 6-classroom room into a 12-classroom block.
