The Bono Regional Minister, Madam Justina Owusu-Banahene, has presented 200 dual desks to the Dormaa East District Directorate of Education to be distributed among deprived public schools as part of her day’s working visit to the district.
The Minister also commissioned a four-unit Kindergarten block for the Wamfie Presbyterian ‘A’ Primary School and another three-unit Kindergarten block for the Wamfie Methodist Primary Schools, constructed by the District Assembly.
Madam Owusu-Banahene stated the government’s commitment to improving school environments for effective teaching and learning to enhance the academic performance of pupils and students. She commended teachers, particularly those serving in the rural communities, for their selfless and dedicated services to the nation.
The Dormaa East District Director of Education, Mr. Philip Danso, said the desks and educational facilities would greatly help facilitate academic progress, and expressed gratitude to the District Assembly for its continuous support in enhancing the growth and development of education in the area.
He said the government’s commitment towards improving the quality of education in the country was exceptional, and asked for more educational facilities for the basic schools, saying some schools in the area still lacked adequate desks, thereby slowing enrolment.
Mr. Danso expressed concern about lack of teachers’ quarters in the area, which remained a daunting challenge confronting the growth of education, and appealed to the District Assembly to help address the problem.
The Dormaa East District Chief Executive, Mr. Emmanuel Kofi Agyeman, advised educational heads to take good care of government properties and utilise the resources judiciously
