Voices from a teacher, a grandmother and a pupil:

Miss Christabel Avettey, teacher

I was just employed at Jopat Academy of success when I achieved 90% in my exams conducted during the interview. I have been here for just a month and I love working with the headmistress, Aunty Josephine, my co-workers and the kids. Working here is easier compared to other schools where I had taught.

Here am able to get some text books and other teaching materials that assist me in teaching the kids. As a trained teacher I will do my best to raise the flag of Jopat Academy high.”

Miss Gladys Awaah
Grandma”, as the children call her, has three grand children at Jopat Academy, who she brings to the school every morning. She volunteers to prepare food for the kids while the school’s cook, Aunty Salomy, is on maternity leave.

Grandma says: “I am happy!! And I will support the school and the children with the little strength that God has given me because the school has given my grandsons scholarships for free! No school fees, so I thank you.”

Ernestina, God’sway and Emmanuelle, pupils
We are three sisters and we have two little brothers at home. We stopped our old school and joined the Jopat Academy of Success. Before, we had to walk for a long time before we got to our old school. God’sway was always crying on our way to school because it was far from our house and we had to go alone. 

The Jopat Academy is close to our house, so Mother brought us here. Our parents couldn’t afford the school fees for the three of us, so we hardly attended school every day. But at the Jopat Academy of Success, Ernestina doesn’t pay school fees, so my mummy says we will come to school every day. I want to come to the school every day to play with my friends. God’sway stopped crying too. We love the Jopat Academy of Success because we wouldn’t walk too far and are learning a lot.
