Presenting the awards to the schools at the 5th Annual Constitution Week Celebration in Accra, Laary Bimi said the reintroduction of civic education in the school curriculum was important to the realisation of national integration.

Kate Bigson, a Civic Education Club Instructor at Tarkwa Secondary School, told the GNA that the establishment of Civic Clubs in the Second Cycle schools was a healthy development that could assist in eliminating occultism and indiscipline among students.

She said: "it has served as an eye opener to the students, teachers and the school community, created a healthy academic competition on the Constitution."

Bigson said the NCCE through the Civic Education clubs has broken the myth surrounding the Constitution and therefore urged other schools to join the club.
