Check Out The First Female Computer Science Ph.D. Graduate From KNUST

Rose-Mary Owusuaa Mensah Gyening recently graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) with a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Computer Science, making her the first female to attain that honour in the University’s history.

Rose-Mary graduated on March 12, 2021.

However, she did not have it easy attaining her Ph.D. In a Facebook post, she recounts how she had to combine studying abroad for her Master’s Degree and then later her Ph.D. while taking care of her children and managing her home.

For that, she is grateful to God and her family to the support.

“It has not been easy but God has been faithful. I am very grateful to my family and loved ones for encouraging me to go this far. We made history together!” she said.

Rose-Mary is proud of what she has been able to achieve and hopes other women will also be able to do the same. She wrote;

“For me, the most important is to hold the door for many ladies to pass through!… Computer Science is largely a male-dominated field but we are changing the narrative! So don’t give up, push harder and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel”.

Government’s newly built Bosomtwe Girls STEM High school admits first batch of students

Government’s newly built Bosomtwe Girls STEM High school admits first batch of students

Bosomtwe Girls STEM: It is quite obvious that President Akufo-Addo’s agenda to train the next generation of leaders in science and technology is becoming a reality.

The first batch of admitted students of Bosomtwe Girls STEM High School, located at Bosomtwe in the Ashanti Region has begun reporting to school.

The government believes that building more Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) senior high schools will significantly transform Ghana’s education sector.

This is aimed at equipping young men and women with the necessary knowledge at an early stage.

The education ministry is hopeful that paying serious attention to STEM will help bridge the development gap between Ghana and other first-world countries since products from the schools would be well-placed to make a real impact by solving societal problems.

The STEM drive has received a significant boost as one of the STEM schools under construction in the Ashanti Region, the Bosomtwe Girls STEM High School, has begun admitting students.

“Now we have started to train leaders in engineering, leaders in aviation, medical leaders, and the rest. This alone is best for the nation. We promise that we are going to be one of the best in this nation,” Mary Donkor, the Headmistress of the school, noted.

Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has described this as a significant milestone, as he says while the government has provided the needed logistics to the school, more resources would be invested there as well as other STEM schools being worked on across the country.

“We’ve opened Bosomtwe Girls STEM High School. It is so nice to meet the students. They’ve come from all over the country. I’ve seen those from Greater Accra, Ashanti, Bono and all over the country. This is going to be a national institution of excellence. The good news is that the science labs are done, the science equipment would be coming next week. They have a pick-up. Everything that the school needs is coming, so I’m excited”.

Some parents whose wards are among the pioneers attending the school are excited about the development.

“I started enquiring about the school when I heard of it from the Minister that it will be a STEM school for girls. It is necessary to equip the girls today, so they can grow up to be doctors, engineers, and the rest. I followed up on the progress of the school till I heard it has started operation. Although my daughter got admission into a top school, I insisted on admitting her to this school so that my daughter can benefit from the Minister’s vision. So I am calling on parents to bring their girl children who are yet to gain admission to any school to this school,” one of the parents stated.

GES denies sewing new uniforms for teachers

GES denies sewing new uniforms for teachers

News trending on social media and other news portals suggest that the Ghana Education Service (GES) is set to give all teachers in Ghana uniforms for their teaching service.

A news article found on GhGossip.com suggests that the trending news about the said unforms have received mixed reactions from Ghanaian netizens with most of them asserting that this is a misplaced priority considering the fact that there are so many things that need to be fixed in the educational system and the authorities chose to do this and ignore all the important things to be done.

Over the weekend pictures of some Ghanaians portrayed to be employees of GES were seen wearing a light and dark brown uniform with Ghana Education Service boldly inscribed on it.

However, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has released a disclaimer denying the development.

DISCLAIMER

GES is one of the largest Gov’t agencies in Ghana. We employ more than half of all Gov’t employees. If we want to introduce uniforms for teachers we won’t do that through social media and over the weekend.

In this era of unionized labour GES cannot introduce a uniform for teachers without engaging the teacher unions.

DISREGARD THIS FAKE NEWS.
