Bosomtwe Assembly builds more schools

The Bosomtwe District Assembly is to build more classrooms as part of an aggressive push to make education accessible to children in all the communities.

Mr Edward Nti-Berko, the District Chief Executive (DCE), said already contracts had been awarded for the start of work on five school blocks at Pepie, Nnuaso-Apinkra, Akokofe, Onwi and Jachie.

They are expected to be ready within five months.

He was speaking during a tour of some schools including those at Adagya, Esreso, Sawua, Prabon and the Ramseyer vocational school at Kyirapatre to interact with teachers and pupils to learn at first hand their felt-needs.

The DCE said they were determined to create the right environment to allow for effective teaching and learning.

He said in line with the government’s free school uniform intervention, 400 pieces of uniforms would be distributed to needy pupils in the area, next week.

Mr Opoku Peprah of the District Education Directorate advised the children to avoid truancy and absenteeism.

They should take some responsibility for their education by working hard on their books.

He spoke of plans by the directorate to step up its monitoring and supervision of schools to make sure that the contact hours were effectively utilized to raise academic performance.

Ms Rebecca Ofori, Headmistress of the Prabon D/A Basic School, appealed for the supply of adequate teaching and learning materials for smooth academic work.
