The District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Ellembelle District Assembly, Kwasi Bonzoh, has extended a word of commendation to Tullow Ghana, operators of Ghana’s Jubilee Field, for targeting pre-schools and investing in them.

Kwasi Bonzoh 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-art pre-schools in some districts in Ghana.

Mr. Bonzoh made the remark when Tullow Ghana handed over fully furnished pre-school buildings for pupils in the Sanzule-Krisan communities in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region.

The school, constructed in a few months, 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 educational artifacts to aid easy comprehension.

Kwasi Bonzoh, touched by the two classroom block with its learning aids, exclaimed! “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 and the needed infrastructure to make it stand.

“We, as an assembly, has taken it up on ourselves to provide the needed infrastructure to make pre-school 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 organisations to learn from Tullow’s example.”

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.
