Nsakina (GAR), April 18, GNA - The Roka International School at Fise, in the Ga West Municipality, on Thursday commissioned a two-unit classroom block for the Nsakina M/A ‘2’ Basic School, near Amasaman, to enhance teaching and learning.
The GH¢50,000.00 project was fully sponsored by the Roka International School to commemorate its 20th anniversary celebrations.
Dr Beatrice Kissiwah Osei, the Chief Executive Officer of Roka Int. School, said management was touched by the plight of the pupils of Nsakina Basic School, who were studying under trees.
“We decided to undertake the project to support the Municipality in which we operate, and seeing that pupils of Nsakina Basic school were studying under trees, we deemed it prudent to support them to commemorate our 20th anniversary,” she said.
“This also forms part of our contribution to government’s efforts of providing quality education for all Ghanaians.”
Dr Osei expressed the hope that the provision of the classroom block would go a long way to helping the pupils to achieve academic success.
She appealed to authorities of the School to maintain the edifice to prolong its lifespan.
Mr Nii Lamptey Wilkinson, the Ga West Municipal Chief Executive, who presented 80 dual desks to the School to the Nsakina Basic School, commended Roka Int. for going to the aid of the pupils.
He said government’s free education initiative had increased the number of school enrolment in the Municipality and urged the pupils to take their studies seriously to enable them to excel.
Madam Harriet Mercy Tagbo, the Headteacher of Nsakina Basic School, said it was established in 2010 and had not seen any rehabilitation since then.
She expressed gratitude to the Roka Int. School for providing them with the classroom block and called on other schools, benevolent organisations and individuals to go to their aid.
