The Member of Parliament for Jomoro Constituency, Hon. Dorcas Afo-Toffey has donated 100 dual desks to Nana Avo Nweah M/A Basic schools in her constituency.
The donation of the desks by Dorcas Afo-Toffey was made to the Human Resource Manager of Jomoro Directorate of Education to be handed over to Nana Avo Nweah M/A basic school.
The donation, which was done on Friday, August 27, 2021 forms part of efforts by the Jomoro MP to contribute to the quality of teaching and learning in the municipality.
Handing over the furniture to the Education Directorate, Dorcas Afo-Toffey said, going around the various communities during her parliamentary election campaign tour, it was devastating to see students lying on the floor and others sitting on blocks during teaching and learning hours, a situation she noted affected the impact on pupils.
She reiterated her commitment to education, adding that, she would make sure every school in her constituency has furniture.
She has since pledged to do her best with the resources available and further pledged to also construct a 6-units classroom block for Nana Avo Nweah M/A basic since the school is in dire need of befitting classrooms.
In the interim, the NDC MP when addressing the gathering pronounced to provide ‘1 teacher, 1 laptop’ to all the teaching staffs of Nana Avo Nweah school located at Forest Junction community, a suburb of Tikobo No-2 in the Jomoro municipal of the Western Region.
The promise by the MP follows a request from the Chief of Tikobo No-2 Nana Avo Nweah, asking the member of parliament to provide the school with an ICT laboratory with computers.
Speaking on behalf of the school, the Headteacher of Nana Avo Nweah Basic School, Mr Cletus Azupe commends the Member of Parliament for her good works.
Mr Cletus Azupe in his address said “challenge of inadequate furniture has been one of the major impediments hindering effective academy work in the school, and, I thank God so much for giving us such a kindhearted and a concerned MP who has come to our aid in addressing that challenge”
Adding that, the donation will go a long way to bring solutions to the canker of inadequate furniture syndrome in his school.
“The supply of this furniture has just opened the door for better and greater achievement in the school” he told New Day FM journalist, told Kaakyire Kwasi Afari.
He applauded the teachers of the school for enduring academic hardship by handling the students who normally squats or sit on the floor during classes hours.
The chief of Tikobo No-2 Nana Avo Nweah, called on the parents to support the teaching staffs in a way of motivating them since the school is located in a deprived area.
He said, the PTA of the school has a pivotal role in improving academics for their wards, hence, they should count as a responsibility in developing the school especially, in the area of assisting the construction of infrastructure for the school and provide food items for the teachers as well.
