The Suhum Education Directorate has extended its gratitude to Samamiah Shipping Enterprise for its assistance in organising first-aid training for local teachers and non-teaching employees.
Mrs. Angelina Ama Osei-Bonsu, Director of the Suhum Municipal Education Directorate, described the training as extremely valuable in an interview with Kwabena Agyapong.
According to her, the directorate had planned to provide this first-aid training for several years.
She told the host that collaborating with the company’s businessman and CEO, Mr. Samuel Mascot Amia, was a step in the right way.
Angelina Ama Osei-Bonsu, Mrs. “This was something I had hoped for, and I was overjoyed when the philanthropist agreed to collaborate with us on this training exercise.”
The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Samuel Mascot Amia, noted that the programme is aimed to offer recipients knowledge on how to best deliver first aid care.
He informed Kwabena Agyapong, the show’s host, that knowing first aid was vital and that the benefits of first aid training were vast.
He advocated that first aid give teachers the tools they need to avoid the crisis from escalating, instil confidence in teachers to care for their pupils, and promote healthy and safe living.
He added that not all accidents, injuries, or illnesses require hospitalisation because first aid can lessen the dangers associated with a student’s injuries or diseases.
He also mentioned that the programme had a positive impact on two villages and that it is being expanded to include all instructors in the area.
The Education Director went on to state that the teachers and other recipients appreciated the activity and requested that it be repeated annually.
“First-aid is critical, and the training was critical to help teachers and other beneficiaries provide first-aid to their students when necessary,” she said. As we interact with kids and instructors, emergencies cannot be ruled out, but it is preferable to train teachers and others so that they have the necessary knowledge and abilities to offer support when needed.”
