The quest for higher education and the desire to have better lives have motivated four nursing mothers to return to school after delivery.

The young mothers, who are all Junior High Secondary Form Two students in a Methodist School in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis are reportedly coping well, as confirmed to the GNA by Mr. Maxwell Ghamson, the head of Guidance and Counseling in the school.

Ms. Esther Armah, the School’s Girl-Child Coordinator said the girls were reporting to school on regular basis with their performances being average.

They are also sober and respectful, the GNA had learnt on a visit to the school.

One of the girls said she had been leaving her nine-month old baby in the care of her mother every morning to be in school.

She said it was her aspiration to become a journalist.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Henrietta Quabu, Metropolitan Girl Child Coordinator, has attributed teenage pregnancy to the lack of responsible parenting, particularly, in caring for the girl-child.

She said girls’ education was now a priority on the agenda of state actors and she was happy that the girls had braced the odds and returned to school.

Mrs. Quaba called for special assistance and scholarships for needy girls to enable them to climb higher on the academic level.
