The Bishop of Akatsi Diocese of the Catholic Church, Bishop Gabriel Kumodzi, has proposed that all newly admitted Form One students in all Senior High Schools should be given compulsory cadet training.
Giving his closing remarks at the 60th-anniversary celebration of the St Paul’s Senior High School (SPACO) on December 8, 2018, the Catholic Bishop said the compulsory cadet training will help instil discipline among students.
He said when the students get to the second year, they can be given the option to either continue being in the cadet or leave.
Bishop Gabriel Kumodzi indicated that when his suggested measures become paramount in all schools, it can reduce indiscipline in schools.
Threats to school leaders
Bishop Gabriel also cautioned the Ghana Education Service to desist from threatening heads of the schools without necessarily hearing their views on matters relating to their work.
Bishop Gabriel was quick to add that the exclusion of Religious and Moral Education (RME) subjects from the SHS curriculum was very unfortunate.
He indicated the exclusion of RME could affect the moral life of students and the role of the Church.
