Accra, Jun. 29, GNA -
The Upper Primary Pupils of Community 7 No.2 Basic School have toured a Model
Community Football Park (Valco Park) at COMMUNITY 7 currently being re-grassed
after refurbishing by the Member of Parliament for Tema Central Mr. Kofi Brako.
The excursion was to enable the pupils to have an insight about soil erosion, borehole systems and experience how the Sprinkler Irrigation System works.
It was also to educate the pupils on the benefits of tree planting and how society can work towards building green communities and projects.
In an interview with some of the students after the tour, most of them said they now have a better understanding of the role of the MP in community development. "We are now also able to explain the borehole and the sprinkler irrigation systems. We did not know how it looked like and how it functions before the tour."
The Community Seven Valco Park Project is the second by Mr Kofi Brako, after the Community 4 TDC ( Prisco park), which currently serves as a community pitch and training grounds for the National Under 20 soccer team and a recreational ground for the community and corporate institutions.
