Wamahinso – The District Chief Executive Officer (DCE) of Asutifi North in Ahafo Region, Mr. Anthony Agyei Mensah has inaugurated two new kindergarten classroom blocks, toilets and a borehole for Wamahinso D/A School .
The projects aim to improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning in the northern district of Asutifi.
The kindergarten class was not at its best, which was a death trap for the students.
An appeal was made by the chiefs of Asutifi to the DCE to come to their aid as the school lacked some effective facilities to enhance learning and teaching.
In a brief ceremony handing over the furnished classrooms to education officials and the community, Mr. Agyei said that education was dear to the heart of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and that he was doing good to improve education across the country.
He pleaded with teachers and parents in the community to instill discipline in the children for a better future.
“We are grateful to everyone who has supported us to put in place this structure for quality education in the country. This is just the tip of the iceberg. We encourage our teaching staff to instil discipline in our children.
“Community teachers also need to be disciplined and do things the right way. Parents also need to give teachers credit when needed to motivate them.
“So we’re handing over this fully furnished structure to the district education officer to use as a classroom so that our neighborhoods are comfortable in school,” he said.
He also appealed to teachers, parents and religious leaders in the community to step up measures to halt the rise in teenage pregnancies in the community.
“Teenage pregnancy is a big problem in our community. During final exams, we see many pregnant female students, which is very pathetic. Parents should be vigilant with their children and enforce discipline,” a- he advised.
Asutifi North District Director of Education, Mrs. Victoria Asantewaa commended DCE for their kind gesture and attitude in promoting education in the country by proposing development projects to improve the quality of education .
“We are delighted to acquire this beautiful structure to ensure quality education in our community.
“We made a request to the leaders of the community and they contacted the Honorable Anthony Adjei Mensah to help us,” she said.
She insisted on the need for a culture of priority maintenance to ensure the lifespan of the installations.
