NEA gives 400 teaching guides to institutions
Thursday, August 30, 2012
The National Environmental Agency (NEA) on Tuesday gave out 400 teaching guides to educational institutions, at a ceremony held at its office in Kanifing.
the ceremony, Ajie Binta Kinteh, the senior programme officer, Environmental
Education and Communication at NEA, outlined the importance of the teaching
guide, saying that it is primarily intended for teachers to convey to young
people the value of their shared heritage and the necessity of conserving it
for future generations.
Looking to the environmental education, she said, they should not only look to the education sector, noting that the learning guides are provided for teachers to guide themselves in order to teach the young people, so as to produce good educationists in the country. Kinteh said that it is believed that young people are the most important to getting environmental education, and therefore urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the books.
Lamin Sonko, a representative of the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE), underscored the importance of the learning material to the education sector. He thanked the NEA for playing an important role in the sector. He pointed out to the institutions and teachers that the materials are not given to be dropped into offices like frames, but to educate the young people.
The beneficiary institutions included: MoBSE, MDI, GTTI, WABSA and others.
