From Isaac Akwetey-Okunor
The Krontihene of Akyem Adadientam in the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Area in the East Akyem Municipality of the Eastern Region, Baffour Frimpong Effapanin I, has presented six computers and other teaching materials to the Adadientam Roman Catholic Schools, to enhance teaching and learning.
Presenting the items to the school, Baffour Effapanin I called on the residents of the area to eschew the “pull him down syndrome,” to pave the way for accelerated development.
According to him, the development of the country was not the sole responsibility of the government, but the collective of all and sundry, hence the residents should shy away from attitudes that would not lead to development, but rather retrogression.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Headmaster of the schools, Mrs. Vida Bosompem and Mr. Daniel Offei Larbi, teachers at the schools, reiterated their appreciations to the chief, and called on others to follow suit.
Promising the chief of their commitment to put the items to good use, the teachers appealed to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other philanthropists, both within and outside the area, to support the school.
In a related development, the school awarded four students for excelling in their fields of academic endeavour.
The four include, Appiah Agnes, Addo Selina, Eric Debrah and Emmanuel Asare, who were adjudged best Science, English and Social Studies respectively.
