The Director of Institute of Education, University of Cape Coast [UCC], Prof. Fredrick Ocansey says students failure in English, Maths and Science courses could be linked to the teaching methods adopted by their tutors.

Speaking to ATL FM News at the sidelines of the opening of a four day subject-based workshop for science tutors from Colleges of Education in Ghana at UCC, Prof. Ocansey explained that students' inability to answer examination questions could be traced to the way teachers convey information to them.

To improve the situation, Prof. Ocansey said the institution found it needful to organize the workshop to better equip tutors of the college in their respective subject areas to enhance delivery.

The Department of Veterinary Services in Cape Coast has organised an immunisation exercise for animals that are likely to be infected by rabies.

The exercise was carried out at Brofoyedur and Amanful both suburbs of Cape Coast with some five hundred animals benefiting from the exercise.

According to the Regional Veterinary Officer, Dr. Felicity Gyan Toninga these areas were chosen because of the high number of pets found there.
