Miss Metropolitan 2020 winner donates 5,700 pieces of nose mask to Star JHS

Miss Grace Nellie Yeboah, Miss Metropolitan Ghana 2020 winner with support from BF Suma has donated 5,700 pieces of nose masks to Star Junior High School (JHS) in Tema.

The donation followed the launch of Foundation of Queen Nellie which aimed to embark on Covid-19 preventive protocols education in some selected schools in the country. 

The donation exercise was done during an educational workshop organized for the final year pupils by Star Old Students Association (SOSA) on the theme, "Dream it! Pursue it! Achieve it!"

Miss Yeboah reminded the pupils that the country was still battling with the pandemic and therefore they must play their role as children in the fight by continuing to mask up until there are zero cases recorded.

She intimated that she planned on sensitizing many students and appeealed to other institutions and organizations to partner with her on this journey.

Madam Patience Yaa Talley, Crown Leader at BF Suma - a health product company, advised the pupils to eat well to boost their immune system to get the needed nutrients to protect themselves against the virus. 

She said, "the body needs nutrients, if you don’t have these nutrients, it means your power of protection has come down so you must eat properly and continue to observe the protocols."

Mr David Acolatse, Chairman, School Management Committee of Star Basic School and Old student, commended Miss Yeboah and BF Suma for embarking on this journey as he stated that COVID was real and had encountered some students who tested positive for Covid. 

He therefore entreated the pupils to put the nose masks donated to them into judicious use as a measure of protecting themselves from contracting the virus while writing their examination.

Mr Kwadwo Baah, Chairman for SOSA and a Multimedia Consultant, told the Ghana News Agency that the workshop was organized in order for old students to motivate the final year students to excel in the upcoming Basic Education School Examination (BECE).

Mr Baah indicated that there was a greater responsibility on the pupuls to represent the school so the old students served as role models for them as they were people who sat in the same seat as them and have now excelled in life.

He said, "our experience here was not different from yours as we faced some of the challenges you are facing now but they shaped and groomed us because we learnt to persevere despite the challenges."
