We need an ICT center direly-Atwima-Koforidua D/A Head teachers appeal

Head-teachers and staff at the Atwima Koforidua D/A Cluster of Schools in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of the Ashanti Region are appealing for support to enable them construct an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) center for the school.

The cluster, which consists of both primary and JHS levels have about 2,000 pupils enrolling currently.

However, the school despite its academic successes cannot boast of a computer lab even though it sits pupils for the ICT subject in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Addressing parents and the public at the school’s open day recently, Mr Richard Opoku Ababio , one of the head-teachers at the cluster appealed to both private and corporate organizations to help the school construct a GHC 50,000.00 ICT center for the pupils.

The JHS A headmaster mentioned congestion at the classrooms of the school as a challenge to school authorities.

Encroachment of the school land, he also added has been an issue the school is struggling to get settled since no funds are available to construct a wall around the facility.

Mr Opoku narrated how some of the pupils exempt themselves from school for no apparent reason, an issue he expressed grave worry about.

Some of the pupils of the school, he noted with dismay have been defecating openly on the school compound.

He, however, thanked the Schools Management Committee (SMC) and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for constantly coming to the aid of the school to help renovate some of its dilapidated structures.

During an appeal for funds, Elder Nana Kwadwo Gyasi, a famous entrepreneur in Kumasi gave the school an amount of GHC 5,000.00 and hundred bags of cement in aid of the ICT center.

The Member of Parliament for the Area, Hon Benito Owusu Bio also pledged an amount GHC 5,000.00 towards the construction of the ICT center.

Other contributions by the public as well as the teachers and staff also amounted to about GHC 5,000.00.

Madam Gifty Asare, Mr John Asomani and Madam Abiba Abito, head-teachers for JHS B, Primary A and Primary B respectively took turns to express the schools appreciation to the public for the gesture.
