ABURA: Assembly allocates 648 laptops to 27 schools

 
Laptop computers  

The Abura Asebu Kwamankese District Assembly has presented a total of about 648 laptop computers to 27 selected schools in its bid to assist the teaching and learning of Information Communication Technology (ICT).

Provision of laptops to assist the study of ICT has been a major priority of government in recent times as most institutions especially basic schools in the country have benefited tremendously from the action.

Chief Executive for the Assembly, William Ata-Mends who made the presentation at a short ceremony asserted that his outfit was working assiduously to ensure that basic schools in the area are provided with the requisite equipment to improve their studies. 

He said the move was part of the ruling National Democratic Congress’ “Better Ghana” agenda policy and cautioned beneficiary schools to ensure proper care of what has been given to them and avoid its sale.

The DCE further noted that the assembly has secured accommodation to be used as a temporal ICT laboratory to the benefit helping improve ICT training in the area.

Meanwhile, each of the 27 beneficiary schools took away 24 pieces of brand new laptop computers.
