Mr Nelson Gbadagba, Director of Happy Stars International School in Ho, said poor teaching methods in pre-schools could be responsible for the poor performance of pupils in basic schools.

He said teaching should be through the “come along approach,” which was more intuitive, and made thought application among pupils generally high.

Mr Gbadagba was speaking to the Ghana News Agency on the need to strengthen pre-school curricula in the country.

“Teaching methodology must be more interactive than instructive,” he said.

Mr Gbadagba said the pre-school teaching job was not just for any teacher.

“That teacher must have passion for kids, ability to relate with kids, handle them and must have a mother’s attitude towards kids,” he said.

Mr Gbadagba said the use of canes, especially at pre-school stages, was not right.

He said visiting schools and seeing teachers, all with canes, as if that represented a staff of duty, was unsightly.

He said in the current global world, every level of formal education must aim at making the recipient fit into many other geographical settings.

Mr Gbadagba, therefore, recommended that as done at Happy Stars International, all schools must endevour to teach other international languages such as French and Chinese alongside English and the local languages.

Mr Gbadagba’s Happy Stars International is said to be a Montessori style educational system, first of its kind in the Volta Region.

Gadgets used in the interactive teaching at the school are computers and projectors with capacities to guide teaching in all subjects.
