The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Tain in the Bono Region, Madam Charity Foriwaa Dwommoh, has commissioned two six unit classroom blocks for the Brohani D/A and Namasa D/A Primary schools in the district.
The Brohani D/A School block was built with financial support from the Islamic Council for Development and Humanitarian Services (ICODEHS).
Sheikh Abdul Baqi Swallah Imam, Vice Chairman of the Islamic Council for Development and Humanitarian Services, urged the people to be united and take their children’s education serious, since it is the only way they can secure their future.
He noted that the government’s priority was on education, and called for support from the people to ensure quality education for the children.
Madam Charity Akua Foriwaa Dwommoh, in her remarks, noted that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo places importance on education and that is why he introduced the Free Senior High School programme to make education accessible to all.
She said that the government was doing its best to improve on education to the highest level, and also make it accessible for the majority of Ghanaians. She urged parents to prioritise their children’s education and invest in them.
The District Director of Education, Mr. Godfred Mark Domah, urged parents to invest in their children’s education and make good use of the building, since the Foundation sacrificed its resources to put up the block for them.
NAMASA D/A PRIMARY SCHOOL
The new u-shape Namasa D/A Primary classroom block was sponsored by Action Ghana and comes with ancillary facilities such as library, staff common room for teachers, mechanised borehole, changing room for girls, and toilets and urinals for boys and girls.
The Chief of Namasa, Alhaji Sule Zingo II, commended community members for their effort towards ensuring the completion of the school building through communal labour.
He was also grateful to Action Ghana for providing their community with a befitting classroom block to replace the old one. He pledged to ensure proper maintenance of the school when the need arises to keep the building strong forever.
He also appealed for a Kindergarten (KG) block, since it is the foundation of the educational system.
The Country Director for Action Aid Ghana, Mr. Abdul Sumaila Rahman, said the block was constructed due to the relationship and collaboration they had with the District Chief Executive.
Mr. Rahman urged parents to take their children’s education seriously, because that was the only way to ensure a successful future for them.
Madam Charity Akua Foriwaa Dwommoh commended Action Aid Ghana for the project, and noted that the government prioritises education that was why it had started some policies such as the Free Senior High School (SHS) and School Feeding Programme among others, aimed at improving and alleviating the plight of Ghanaians.
“We all know that education is very important for every nation, and Ghana, as a country, through the help of government was doing its best to improve on education to [the] highest standard and to also make it accessible for Ghanaians,” she said.
She appealed to the people to make good use of the building by sending their children to school.
Mr. Mark Godfred Domah thanked Action Aid for the support, adding that it would serve as motivation for the teachers and pupils.
