Do Not Limit Yourself to the Classroom – UCC NUGS President to SHS Students

The President of the National Union of Ghana Students, University of Cape Coast (NUGS-UCC), Mr Achire Adam has advised Senior High School Students in the Central Region not to limit themselves to the classroom.

According to him, for SHS students to adequately prepare themselves for tertiary education and for the corporate world, they need to engage in activities outside the classroom to enable them gain some needed skills and experiences that are not taught in the classroom.

The NUGS-UCC President said this during a conference organized by NUGS-UCC in partnership with VALSTALK on Saturday, 30th November, 2019 on the theme; “Living the Dream Conference 2019 with Senior High Schools in Central Region”.

Mr Adam highlighted that one of the aims of NUGS-UCC is to see to the welfare of basic school students as well as the SHS students across the Central Region.

He stated that earlier this year, NUGS-UCC embarked on tour to some selected Junior High Schools across the Central Region and made donation of pens and other items to BECE candidates.

Mr Adam in an interview with said, “this was the time for the Senior High Schools, we brought the students together to talk to them about their future career, how to manage their time, leadership, health tips and to give them ideas on how to work towards their dreams”.

He further advised students to get themselves mentors to guide them in their quest to realizing their dreams.

Speaking at the event, the guest speaker, who doubles as the CEO of LEC Group, Mr Albert Kusi cautioned students that in order to realize their dreams in the future, they should maintain good relationships with others.

“try as much as possible to establish and maintain good relationships with three set of people; people above you, people at your level and people below you,” Mr Kusi said.

According to him, maintaining good relationship with the people you meet at all levels of life can contribute a lot to one’s future.

“Do not despise anyone whether the fellow is at your level or below you. If you learn how to value and maintain relationships, you will go far,” he added.

Mr Kusi however admonished students to be careful of the people they associate themselves with, “Associate yourself with positive people, people who encourage you and avoid anyone who discourages you”.
