Madam Veronica Alele Heming, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Bole in the Savannah Region, has presented 180 dual desks through the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the District for distribution to some schools.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, Madam Veronica said the Government sought to prioritise education at the various levels towards improving teaching and learning activities to ensure sound education.
The Assembly, she said, is working tiredlessly to procure more desks for other schools that are faced with furniture deficit.
“The Assembly is committed to ensuring that the necessary support the District Education Directorate requires is given them to enable them to discharge their mandate appropriately,” she said.
“The NPP Government under the auspices of president Akuffo-Addo is rolling out the appropriate educational policies targeting all and sundry of which our District is not left out”, madam Veronica indicated.
The DCE urged the GES to endeavor to maintain the desks to achieve the intended purpose of improving upon the quality of education in the District.
She added that the Education Directorate should ensure that the desks are distributed immediately to all schools to avoid any damages as they are exposed to the high scorchy sun.
Mr. Abu Sumani Thompson, who received the furniture on behalf of the District Director of GES, expressed gratitude to the DCE and members of the Assembly.
“We very much appreciate this donation because these desks will contribute immensely to the teaching and learning process in our District,” he said.
He assured the DCE that the Directorate will distribute the furniture as quick as possible to schools that are in dire need and promised that they will ensure that the furniture is maintain properly to ensure that they last longer.
The DCE in December 2020, handed over a 2,000 units of dual desks funded by the Assembly to the GES in aid of improving the delivery of quality education in the District.
