EIGHT SECOIND cycle institutions in the Upper East Region on Monday received four buses and five pickup vehicles to enhance effective monitoring and supervision. The vehicles are also expected to provide a trouble-free transportation system for students and teachers.
The regional Minister, Mr. Mark Woyongo who presented the vehicles to the Regional Director of Education, noted that the presentation formed part of government’s intervention towards the promotion of quality and effective educational system in the region.
He said the vehicles would serve as means of transportation to students and teachers who lived at the outskirts of the region and ultimately facilitate teaching and learning in the schools.
Mr. Woyongo said in the absence of pickups in boarding schools, these vehicles could be used to convey foods items to the schools for students to have maximum benefits and also to reduce the burden on heads of those institutions.
He appealed to the heads of the beneficiary schools to use the vehicles to enhance their work and ensure that the vehicles were strictly supervised. He also charged the drivers to develop the culture of maintenance to ensure that the lifespan of the vehicles was not cut short.
Mr. Paul Apanga, Regional Director of Education, who received the vehicles, said they had come at the right time since they would impact positively on the delivery of quality education in the region.
The selected beneficiary schools included the Navrongo SHS, Fumbisi SHS, Zamse SH-Technical School, Bolgatanga Girls SHS, Chiana SHS, Notre Dame SHS, Bawku SH-Technical School and St. John’s Integrated Senior High and Technical School.
