The Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), has donated a number of furniture worth GH¢13,000.00 to the Abossey Okai Primary and JSS “Ä” in Accra.
They included 70 pieces of dual desks and 17 teachers tables and chairs for all the classrooms.
The donation was in response to an appeal made by the headmistress of the school, Mrs. Juliana Acquah during the school’s last speech and prize-giving day ceremony in July this year.
Making the presentation, Apostle Joseph Sakyi, the Director of Christian Education at CACI, said the church responded quickly to the appeal because children were the future leaders who would propel the nation into prosperity.
He asked the children to respect their parents, teachers and the elderly and also learn well to achieve excellence in their respective fields of endeavour.
“You should be encouraged to work hard because God is preparing you for a good future,” Apostle Sakyi told the children and also asked the teachers to take up the challenge of raising responsible children for the nation.
He further urged the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of the school to provide the right guidance to both the children and the school authorities to help them get the foundation on which to build their future.
Receiving the donation, Mrs Acquah thanked the CACI for responding favourably to the appeal she made, and asked other individuals and institutions to help raise the standard of the school.
Mrs Frances Williams, Accra Metro Coordinator of Public Basic Schools, thanked the donors and asked both the children and their teachers to handle the furniture well to ensure a longer lifespan.
