The Krowor Municipal Chief Executive, Joshua Nii Bortey, on Tuesday cut sod for the construction of a three-unit classroom block for St. Peters’ Anglican Primary School in his municipality.
The project will include a head teacher’s office, staff common room and a store room.
He disclosed that about 100 pieces of mono and dual desk as well as 10 teachers’ tables and chairs would also be provided as part of the package.
The project, which is funded by the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF), will be completed in six months.
According to the MCE, provision of books and uniforms, as well as construction of more classroom blocks, among other amenities, in the municipality are part of the efforts at ensuring that children of school-going age get access to education.
The MCE urged residents of the municipality to make education of their children a priority, adding that they must always encourage their children to attend school.
He reiterated the government’s commitment to transforming the educational sector, adding that it would continue to provide the required infrastructure to bridge the gap between low and higher performing schools in the country.
Mr Bortey explained that it was President Akufo-Addo’s passion for education that birthed the
Free Senior High School programme in 2017 to give equal opportunity to all to attain second cycle education.
