Bawumia proposes the involvement of PTA in the feeding of SHS students


Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has proposed integrating parents into the feeding component of the Free SHS scheme via Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs).

The Vice President said this proposal will be presented to the Cabinet for consideration.

He explained that it is aimed at ensuring the active engagement of parents in the feeding of the wards in our various secondary schools.


This, he added, will help parents and guardians track what their wards are fed and also check the theft of food items by some kitchen staff across various SHSs in the country.

“We should bring the PTA to observe and they therefore will know that the headmasters and the matrons will know, that the parents know because as it is now, if they get five bags, they may declare one bag if nobody is looking and so this is a brilliant and realistic suggestion.”

He made the remarks when he interacted with religious leaders in Accra as part of his campaign tour.
