Teachers Mocked Over Wrong Spelling On Awards Day

By on

A picture of a wrongly spelt word on the dummy cheque presented to the best teacher on Teachers’ Day is causing a stir on social media with many mocking teachers in the country.

The check which showed the reward package for the best teacher had the word ‘prize’ wrongly spelt, or worse still, mistaken for ‘price’ by the teachers who organised the ceremony.

The  dummy cheque had “Ghana Teachers Price” instead of “ Ghana Teachers Prize” boldly written on it with a picture taken with the organisers and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who was special guest of honour for the occassion.

Meanwhile, the Vice President has lauded the enormous contribution of teachers to Ghana’s socio-economic development.

Describing teachers as “unsung heroes”, Dr Bawumia extolled the dedication and selflessness exhibited by practitioners of the teaching profession over the years and pledged the Nana Akufo-Addo government’s commitment to recognizing the contributions of hardworking and selfless teachers towards the improvement of education in the country through a wide range of incentives and reforms.

“These dedicated men and women are our unsung heroes, often working in less than ideal conditions and toiling hard not only to impart knowledge in us but to shape our moral code and prepare us to be responsible citizens,” Dr Bawumia declared in Accra on Friday 5th October 2018 in Accra.

Mr. Bawumia  was speaking at the maiden edition of the ‘Ghana Teacher Prize awards’, formerly ‘National Best Teacher awards’, held at the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (Presec).
