NCCE Atiwa West District sensitises students on good sanitation practices

The Atiwa West District, Eastern region, visited students of the Pentecost Preparatory JHS to sensitise them on good sanitation practices.

The sensitisation was centered on personal hygiene and good environmental sanitation practices.

Ellen Ofosu (ACEO) spoke about the need to uphold cleanliness, especially in this Harmattan season.

She mentioned that it is essential to practice frequent handwashing with soap under running water, wearing nose masks, bathing and brushing twice daily, and good personal hygiene, especially in this dry season to prevent diseases and infections.

Also, she stated that Article 41(g) & (k) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana enjoins every citizen "to contribute to the well-being of the community in which he or she lives" and "to protect and safeguard the environment".

The students were urged to clean their homes, and school compounds, and weed their surroundings. However, they were cautioned not to engage in bush burning or leave set fires unsupervised in order not to cause fire outbreaks.

Esther S. Appiah and Matilda Darkoa both ACEO were in attendance during the education.
