ICS Ghana has appointed 36 students as Health and Safety Ambassadors. Selected Students in Year 7 through to Year 13 make up the Health and Safety Ambassadors.
The Health and Safety Ambassadors were announced publicly for the first time during a special assembly held virtually. This Term, classes were divided into two streams. Two Health and Safety Ambassadors is for every stream.
The essence of appointing the Health and Safety Ambassadors is to help the school continue to enforce COVID-19 protocols put in place. These protocols are not only found in their classrooms but on playgrounds as well. With the support of Health and Safety Ambassadors, COVID-19 protocols will adhere.
In her address, Principal Ayodo advised the Ambassadors to work as a team. She continued that they should be respectful in their dealings with others and be consistent in their expectations. She further stressed that the school community should do our bit as far as compliance with COVID-19 protocols is concerned, “Wear your mask properly, wash your hands, sanitize and maintain Physical Distance,” said Principal Ayodo.
In her advice to the ICS Ghana students, she stated that the pandemic is closer to us than we think. Stigmatization is not the way to go. As Future Leaders from ICS Ghana, they should empathize and support those in their community who have been affected or infected with COVID-19.
At ICS Ghana, we are continuously looking for ways and opportunities to nurture leaders. It is our firm belief that this is a way for our Future Leaders to lead by example. We know leadership comes with change but always, rise above and look at the opportunity to grow in the challenges.
Health and Safety Ambassadors have begun work. We wish them all the best.
