The District Chief Executive for Ellembelle District Assembly has extended a word of commendation to Tullow Ghana, operators of Ghana’s Jubilee Field for targeting preschools and investing in them. Kwasi Bonzoh popularly known as ‘Bonzoh K’ said the consistent investment in the educational sector by the Jubilee partners in the Ellembelle District needed commendation and mentioning.
“Look at education as putting up a building. The weaker the foundation, the fragile the building, which is why it is sincerely commendable and heartwarming to see that Tullow Ghana is providing these state of the arts preschools in some districts in Ghana.
Mr. Bonzoh made the remark when Tullow Ghana handed over a fully furnished state of the art preschool for pupils in the Sanzule-Krisan communities in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region.
The school, constructed in a few month, through Sabre Education, partners of Tullow Oil (Ghana) Plc is made up of two classrooms for Kindergarten 1&2, a canteen, playground and descent places of convenience.
The pupils, handled by specially trained teachers by Sabre Education are taught with the assistance of state of the art educational artifacts to aid easy comprehension.
Bonzo K, touched by the two classroom block with its learning aids intimated that “It is also worthy of note that almost all the objects in the classrooms have their Nzema and English names embossed on them. This is a smart way of helping children appreciate their environment and preserving their native language Nzema. We are forever grateful to Tullow for this gift”. The Ellembelle DCE said over the years, the focus on education has been on senior high education and the needed infrastructure to make it stand.
“We as an assembly has taken up on ourselves to provide the needed infrastructural to make preschool education in the Ellembelle District improved. But this gift from Tullow has certainly come at the right time to give us the elevation we need. There is, however, more work to be done in this direction, which is why we need other corporate organizations to learn from Tullow’s example”. Mr. Bonzoh added. For this reason, the DCE used the occasion to implore other corporate institutions in the country, particularly those operating in the Region to emulate the shining example of Tullow. This, he says would help companies leave footprints that would continue to exist for years to come.
