SUNYANI: 300 dual desk distributed to 9 schools

 
Dual desk  

The Sunyani Municipal Assembly has distributed 300 dual desks worth GH¢21,300 to nine basic schools in the Municipality.

The beneficiary schools are Kyirimogya Municipal Assembly Primary at Yawsae 40, Kurasua Number One Municipal Assembly Primary 30, Nyamaa Municipal Assembly  Primary in Sunyani 40, New Dormaa Islamic Primary 45, Kotokrom Municipal Assembly Primary 30, Abesim SDA Primary 30, Asufufuo Municipal Assembly Primary 25, Darul Hadith Primary at Kotokrom 30 and Nkrankrom Municipal Assembly Primary 30.

Mr Kwasi Oppong-Ababio, Sunyani Municipal Chief Executive, presenting the dual desks in Sunyani yesterday, said it was to facilitate effective teaching and learning in the municipality.

He said the Assembly’s socio-economic developmental agenda for the year, would focus more on educational infrastructure, especially the provision of furniture and places of convenience to needed basic schools.

Mr Oppong-Ababio said since 2009, the percentage pass at the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) was 71 per cent, but with the payment of mock examination fees for students in the Junior High Schools (JHS) by the assembly, the results had increased to 76 per cent in 2011 and now at 83.2 per cent.

He urged teachers in the Municipality to be more committed and dedicated to their work because the assembly would complement their efforts with the necessary facilities and logistics to improve on the standards of education.

Ms Mary Gyimah, Sunyani Municipal Director of Education, receiving the dual desks on behalf of the beneficiary schools expressed appreciation to the Management Committee of the assembly for the gesture.

She expressed the hope that the head teachers would take good care of them.
