According to her, “we want this year’s awards to be unique to serve as a motivation for the teachers to give their best and to serve as a challenge to all teachers to aspire for the ultimate.

“We want to give this year’s awards a new face. We want to do something different by being more creative in order to keep the excitement among the public and the teachers,” the deputy minister said.

Mrs Ayisi advised teachers to continue to give of their best because “ every sacrifice you make today will not go unnoticed.”

She pledged the company’s continuous support for the awards scheme and an even bigger one saying when the time was up,  the company would announce its package for the award.


Ms. Brookman-Amissah proposed that the ministry should include scholarships to deserving teachers , saying she was confident such an award would encourage teachers to give of their best.

She also asked corporate bodies and individuals to emulate EPP Books Service’s steps by sponsoring the award ceremony.
