from Albert Nana Asante
A number of organisations have donated towards the 2011 Best Teacher Awards ceremony in the Obuasi Municipality. They include the Odotobri Rural Bank, Mining and Building Constructions (MBC), and Anglo Gold Ashanti, Obuasi.
The General Manger of Public Affairs of Anglo Gold Ashanti, Mr. John Owusu, who donated GH¢4,000 on behalf of the bank towards the celebration, said the company viewed education as the engine of growth and development, hence its commitment to assist in educational programmes.
He said the donation was intended to help boost dedicated services from teachers, who were key factors in the proper training of the youth.
Mr. John Alexander Ackon, Obuasi Municipal Chief Executive, acknowledged the collaboration between the Assembly and AGA in the promotion of basic education in the district.
He added that it was as a result of such a healthy collaboration that the district had over the past three years recorded successes in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
The Municipal Director of Education, Mr. Johnny Owusu Boadi, was optimistic that the support to the Assembly and the Education Directorate would influence teachers to perform to improve academic standards.
