Nunoo-Mensah aids Moree Sec/Technical

Brig Gen Nunoo MensahAuthorities of the Moree Secondary/Technical School near Cape Coast, have made an urgent appeal to the central gov-ernment and corporate bodies, to help address the inadequate infrastructure facing the insti-tution.

According to the authorities, the school has not got enough classrooms, bungalows for teachers, assembly and dining halls, and vehicles for its day-to-day administration.

Mrs Rebecca Mensah, Senior Housemistress of the school, made the appeal when Brigadier Nunoo-Mensah, Presidential Security Advisor on Human Development, handed over three classrooms and a girls’ dormitory, to the authorities at Moree.

Brigadier-General Nunoo-Mensah completed the six classrooms of the first floor of a GETFund classroom project that had been abandoned for the past three years due to financial constraints.

He also handed over a 13-seater toilet facility, a female bathhouse and drilled a borehole he provided for the school.

Mrs. Mensah said before the intervention by Brigadier Nunoo-Mensah, the girls were living in a private rented house, about two miles away from the campus.

According to her, the boys are still living in a rented house, and that had created a huge financial burden on the school.

The Senior Housemistress said there was no bungalow on the school campus, leaving the headmaster with no option than to commute from Cape Coast to the school, while the Assistant Headmaster also commutes from Agona Swedru, daily.

She said the Computer School Selection and Placement System posted 780 students to the school during the 2014 academic year, but only 100 could be admitted, due to inadequate accommodation.

Brigadier Nunoo-Mensah said his action was in response to an appeal made by the headmaster of the school during the handing-over of a classroom project, he undertook for his alma mater, Winneba Senior High School early this year.

Brig. Gen. Nunoo-Mensah said he spent over GH¢60,000 on the completion of the GETFund project, to ensure effective teaching and learning.—
