and the formation of attitudes.
This, according to Ms Damali, leads to most graduates lacking the basic skills required to be entrepreneurs, which ultimately increases unemployment.

These are the naturalistic, musical, logical-mathematical, existential, interpersonal, linguistic, bodily-kinetic, intra-personal and spatial intelligences.
She added that when “we focus on these dimensions of intelligence, we will develop learners with skills in the areas of respect for nature (naturalistic), respect and tolerance of others (interpersonal skills), sport, body and kinesiology, among others. I am sure we have several Asamoah Gyans, Ayews, Hussain Bolts, Ephraim Amos and many more among our children gathered here. It is our duty to nurture them and bring out their respective talents for national development. “
