@OtuSowah said: Parents have saved enough to support their kids to further their education because of FSHS. A child whose parents couldn’t cater to their wards in SHS can do so at the tertiary level, that’s what gov’t is saying.
@nambepatrick reacted: St. James diie, top oo, my nephew got 6As, B3 in English, and B2 in social studies. The money now be the problem. Everywhere make sheee.
@PromzyKingston commented: Instead of going for an apprenticeship, he should rather work whilst he explores scholarship opportunities. Master Card is available for students who have stayed home a year after she. GNPC IS ALSO THERE. Apprenticeship is not the way forward if he wants to further his education dream
