first_imgCeebe Barshell making remarks during the Science and Arts exhibition at Aware International SchoolHaving experienced shortage of medical doctors throughout the country, Montserrado County District#3 Representative Ceebee Barshell on Friday, March 1, 2019, said there was a need for school administrators to pay keen attention by including Science and Arts courses into their curriculum.Barshell said during so would encourage more students to develop interest in Science and Arts courses, through which many of students could become medical doctors.Barshell made the statement when the Aware International School conducted a Science and Arts Exhibition where participating students displayed their individual talents in Science and Arts.At Friday’s exhibition, students presented working models of their projects on global warming and its preventive measures, application of mathematical theories for daily use, as well as science and arts play for kids.The students also exhibited common plants and their health benefits, assessment of intentions and their working models, and a general tour of scientific and artistic displays.With the display of Arts, Barshell said there was a need for school authorities to concentrate mostly on the field of sciences. “But to achieve that, relevant government institutions, including the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA), have to do more to reduce tariffs on the importation of science related equipment and materials.Another issue, Barshell observed, was for school authorities to mobilize their resources to jointly help the importation of said equipment and materials into Liberia.Indian Consul Gen. Jetty making remarks at the Science and Art Exhibition at Aware International SchoolAlso speaking, Upjit Singh Sachdeva, commonly known as “Jeety,” lauded the Aware International School administration for the initiative, and called on authorities at the Ministry of Education to follow the good “example of the school.”Jeety, a businessman and the Indian Consul General to Liberia, said the annual science and arts exhibition would make more students to get involved with the field of science and, thereafter, become future scientists for the country.According to him, the country has about 123 medical doctors for a population of over 4 million, which he said is a result of school administrators not making enough efforts to ensure that science laboratory was prioritized into their institution.This, he said would help to attract more students to the field of science and to become medical doctors in the future.Students of Aware International School demonstrating their science and arts projectsShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
