Nine students have been graduated on Saturday at the Sky High Academy, one of the reputable basic schools situated at Kanvilli Tuunaayili in the Sagnarigu district of Tamale. The students have successfully graduated from kindergarten two (KG 2) to primary one (P 1).
The chairman for the occasion, Reverend Tahid Ayuba Elijah spoke with Zaa News on the significance of the second graduation of students of Sky High Academy and urged parents and guardians to send their children to school. Reverend Ayuba also asked parents to train their children to become good citizens tomorrow.
The Headmistress, Akele Esther, said the school from a humble beginning with six students, when it was established barely a year ago, can now boast of fifty students due to the excellent academic performance. Madam Esther on behalf of the entire staff and management of the school assured parents of the wellbeing of their wards. She, however, lamented the delay in payment of school fees by parents.
Activities carried out at the graduation were poetry recitals, singing lovely songs, reading competition, spelling competition, sack race, chair dance competition and dancing competition. Various awards were given to deserving students.
