The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has engaged parents, teachers and students of the Penyi No. 1, Anglican Basic and Penyi No. 2 Basic Schools in the Ketu North Municipal Directorate during a P.T.A. meeting at the school. The NCCE at any given opportunity engages its stakeholders on civic issues. The P.T.A. meeting at Penyi No.1 Anglican Basic School is one of such platforms the Commission uses to engage citizens.

Civic Educators during the meeting were given the platform to educate both parents and students on the responsible use of the internet and cyber security issues and also highlight the constitutional provision on Children’s Rights and Protection. The engagement was to commemorate this year’s ‘Safer Internet Day’ under the theme, “Together for a better internet”.

The Municipal Director of NCCE, Prosper K. Afealete called on parents to regularly monitor the online activities of their wards. He entreated parents and guardians to speak to their children to receive first-hand information on their needs. He emphasized, “like you manage your farms and crops individually, you need to protect your children, work daily on them, and nurture them at any given time to yield more fruits”.

An Assistant Civic Education Officer at the Ketu North Municipal Office of the NCCE, Juliet Enam Obiri, urged the students to embrace the opportunities in the internet space. She charged them to use the internet to educate themselves and enhance their knowledge in their field of study. She advised them to refrain from cyber fraud and unproductive activities.

The Civic Educators together with the students played a Constitution Board Game to increase their understanding of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.

The headmaster and patrons of the NCCE’s Civic Education Club in the school were delighted and expressed appreciation to the NCCE. They called on the Commission for more of such engagements to educate the students on the 1992 Constitution and other civic issues. The headmaster of Anglican No. 1 Basic School, Eric Dzikunu appealed for support to equip the school’s ICT lab.
