Ho Diocese Awarded Scholarship to Brilliant but Needy Students

Bishop Fianu, SVD, upon consultation with the Priests’ Council and stakeholders in education has established the Ho Diocesan Scholarship Scheme Committee comprising of five members which took effect from the 2017/2018 academic year. The aim was to assist needy but brilliant students in the Junior High Schools across the length and the breadth of the Diocese. The scholarship committee is to work hand in hand with the Diocesan Development Office.

Annually, this scholarship had been distributed evenly in the diocese and this year is no exception.

On 15th July 2021, the 2020/2021 academic year scholarship distribution ended at Ho deanery and was hosted by St. Cecelia Basic Schools, Ho Dome.

In his welcome address, Very Rev. Fr. Theodore Hevi, the Dean of the Ho deanery, profoundly thanked the bishop very much for this splendid initiative. He stated further that education is the bedrock of all developments, the development of both material and human resources.

Mr. Teku, the chairman of the committee reiterated the same ideas of the Dean and added sharply that the bishop saw the need for this award because many brilliant but needy students keep dropping out of school.  He gave the criteria for which the awardees merited the scholarship. First, he said that the beneficiary must be ascertained to be brilliant academically, a very good student personally in his or her community and at home. Secondly, that there are economic and social challenges at home if not intervened, which will cause the student to drop out of school.

The award packages were distributed among two main categories of the awardees, those who are previously on the scheme and those who are newly hooked up to it.

The page however included exercise books, textbooks, pens, mathematical sets, school bags, and a cash of GHC200 each.

The parents expressed their joy and seized the opportunity to their gratitude to the Bishop and the Church for coming to their assistance.

In attendance were the development office team led by Rev. Fr. Anthony Dotse, the Scholarship Scheme Committee, Headmasters from the various schools of the awardees, parents, and guidance of the awardees, and also a cross-section of some teachers and students of St. Cecelia Junior High school.
