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 further inaugurated a four-unit Kindergarten block for the Wamfie Presbyterian ‘A’ Primary and another three-unit kindergarten block for the Wamfie Methodist Primary Schools, constructed by the District Assembly.
Madam Owusu-Banahene stressed the government’s commitment to improving the school environment for effective teaching and learning to enhance the academic performance of pupils and students.
She commended teachers, particularly those serving in rural communities for their selfless and dedicated services to the nation.
Mr Philip Danso, the Dormaa East District Director of Education said the desks and the educational facilities would facilitate academic progress and expressed appreciation 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 to improving quality education in the country was exceptional, and asked for more educational facilities in basic schools, saying some schools in the area still lacked adequate desks, thereby limiting enrolment in such schools.
Mr Danso expressed concern about the 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.
Mr Emmanuel Kofi Agyeman, the Dormaa East District Chief Executive advised the educational heads to take good care of government properties and utilise resources judiciously.
