The Chairperson of National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE), Ms Josephine Nkrumah, has urged members of Civic Education Clubs to uphold the value of excellence and go the extra mile in whatever they do.
She advised them to aspire to leave a mark wherever they went.
Ms Nkrumah was speaking at the fifth annual civic festival of the Aburi Girls Senior High School Civic Education Club (CEC) at Aburi in the Eastern Region.
The festival, dubbed CIVICFEST was organized under the theme, “Our nation, our heritage- consolidating Ghana’s democratic gains”.
Ms Nkrumah said CECs were nurturing grounds to raise leaders who would speak up for the good of the nation.
She urged the students to rally behind the campaign for sanitation and tax education in and outside the School.
Mrs Alice Prempeh Fordjour, the Headmistress of Aburi Girls, urged the students to put into practice what they learnt in civic education.
She admonished the students to be patriotic, responsible and respect the school rules and regulations.
Ms Lilian Asare, the President of the Aburi Girls CEC, said civic education contributed to good academic performance of CEC members in the School.
She said currently most of the best students in the School were members of the club.
Ms Asare explained that some of the activities, which took place at CEC meetings included studying the 1992 Constitution, pick and acts, debates, drawings and participating in other activities aimed at equipping students with exceptional skills to create jobs for themselves after school.
