SAKARA SALIA

KANVILLI RC SCHOOL COMPLEX TAMALE

A Lifetime Commitment To Teaching Science

”Science is such that it has to do with everyday life and it can do much for the country…” — 

Sakara Salia

Mr. Sakara Salia has been teaching for thirty-three years. Currently, he teaches a class of thirty five students. Mr. Salia comes from a family of twenty five. He resides in Tamale and teaches at the Kanvilli RC School Complex. Mr. Sakara has always wanted to be someone who trains children and today he has achieved that dream.

He always wanted to be a teacher, following in the footsteps of his father who was also an educator. He started school at Sakasaka Experimental and the impressive teaching of his teachers fed his love for teaching. After attending secondary school at GHANASCO, His dad encouraged him to go to training college in order to achieve his dream. He enrolled in Bagabaga training college and was posted to a school in 1986.

Mr. Sakara Salia believes that science is apparent in our everyday lives and can help develop the country. “We should be serious with science such that we will churn out people who will be meaningful and come out to produce [technology] to make our nation a better place.”

Mr. Sakara draws inspiration from training students by taking them through practical concepts. What he enjoys most about teaching STEM is how his students are involved in the lessons. The joy of imparting knowledge to students keeps him motivated in his profession. As a teacher who will be retiring soon, he is gratified when he watches the batch he has taught leaves, and a new one arrives.

When he was informed of the JUNEOS Challenge, he went through the syllabus to find a catchy topic. Eventually, he and his students settled on the periscope for their experiment. Mr. Sakara’s students focused on demonstrating of the reflection of light using a periscope. 

Through his participation in the JUNEOS challenge, Mr. Sakara’s teaching has gained a more practical aspect, which has made his students more attentive to his lessons. As a result of this, they are able to  demonstrate what they learn and understand the material very well. Mr. Sakara Salia explains that this helps them to become people who pay attention to detail in real life.

Mr. Sakara Salia involves himself in STEM communities. He has been a member of BSTEM for 2 years and is also a member of the Ghana Association of Science Teachers (GAST). This gives him the opportunity to enhance his knowledge and skills and to also receive assistance anytime he encounters problems during teaching in class.

Mr. Sakara would like to encourage his colleagues in other schools to participate in the JUNEOS Challenge because it will improve their teaching skills and enhance the knowledge of their students.

It was yet another successful ‘By The Fireside’ event and the attendance this time was undoubtedly double that of the maiden event. Was it because of the content for the night; sex & relationships? Definite crowd pullers then. P.G Sebastian & Nana Darkoa Sakyiaama our two storytellers took the ‘stage’ to share their most popular blogpost and what prompted them to write it.

Why I Walked Out On Him by PG Sebastian a prolific blogger and speaker on marriage & relationships was first to tell his story. He shared how this post was inspired by a conversation he heard or overhead from a lady on her phone. His content which is mostly founded on Christian values & principles for marriage, was presented with very practical life examples.

byThefireside3.0-16Why should you walk out on a guy even if he has proposed to you? Is he living in the now or has plans for the future? If he is always hanging out with his ‘boys boys’ or always buying the latest gadget or car then he’s living in the now and doesn’t have any plans of the future. Walk out. Does he only talk about football instead of family? If he’s always talking about Chelsea or is very focused on Keeping Up With The Kardasians then walk out. He obviously doesn’t have much to talk about with regards to the future. For a moment some members of the audience in their excitement yelled ‘Amen’ in congruence with his energy.

‘Sexing Whilst Feminist’ was next by Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, owner and award-winning blogger of Adventures From , a sex blog. She launched into how Adventures From started out and what sexing whilst feminist meant.
