Dear Parent

Special Assembly

Please find below students’ reflections on last week’s special assembly.

The Special Assembly was very insightful. I’m now a little conversant with the positive and negative effects of family businesses and social media. – Eugene, Grade 7

The special assembly was really thought-provoking. The two presenters discussed topics that were engaging and I enjoyed listening to all the presentations- Elorm Godzi, Grade 9

At this week’s special assembly I got to listen to the ideas on controversial topics and the strength and weaknesses of a family business and also how social media plays a role in democracy. – Araba, Grade 9

The special assembly for me was an eye opener. I got some insight on university life. I also enjoyed the presentations by the two professors and I can’t wait for University! – Cyril Davis, Grade 9

Hand Hygiene

 Appropriate hand hygiene includes diligently cleaning and trimming fingernails, which may harbour dirt and germs and can contribute to the spread of some infections, such as pinworms.

  • Keep nails short and trim them often is a sign of good personal hygiene.
  • Scrub the underside of nails with soap and water (or a nail brush) every time you wash your hands.
  • Clean any nail grooming tools before use.
  • In commercial settings such as nail salons External, sterilize nail grooming tools before use.
  • Avoid biting or chewing nails.
  • Avoid cutting cuticles, as they act as barriers to prevent infection.
  • Never rip or bite a hangnail. Instead, clip it with a clean, sanitized nail trimmer.
  • Longer fingernails can harbour more dirt and bacteria than short nails, thus potentially contributing to the spread of infection.
  • Always wash your hands with soap under running water, when you use the washroom.

As students, we encourage you to keep your nails neat and short at all times to prevent germs.

Interact Club updates – Incubator at the Tema General Hospital

The Interact Club of TIS donated an Incubator to the Tema General Hospital last year during the tenure of Anna Maria Poku (Charter President), Class of 2018. The Incubator had saved the lives of 4 babies from June through to October when we received the news that the Incubator had generated faults and could not function anymore. We reached out to our Supplier 3M&C who also paid a 30% of the Incubator during the purchase, for repair. 3M&C who also believes in reaching out and saving lives made another benevolent offer of replacing the faulty Incubator with a brand new one to continue to serve its purpose of saving premature babies.

In collaboration with LittleBigSouls Foundation and 3M&C a new incubator was installed at the Tema General hospital on Monday, 30 April.

Kudos to the Interact Club members.  A big Thank You to Ekuba Odoi, the C.EO of 3M&C for her incredible support. Every breath counts!

Enjoy the rest of your day!!
