The Extra And Co-Curricular Education Expo


ECCE 2014 was based on the theme, “Going within and beyond,” and built upon the modest success of the maiden event in 2013. We hosted over 170 educators, exhibitors and other stakeholders in Ghanaian basic education at the African Regent hotel on October 1, 2014. The event enabled educators to network with a wide range of over 20 exhibitors to negotiate rates, plan programmes for pupils and parents, and also learn about new products, teaching approaches, and education-related services. The presentations and exhibition focused on the following areas, among others:

  • E-learning
  • Libraries and Research
  • Child Health and Safety
  • Leisure and Recreation
  • Special Needs Students
