Adentan Municipal Assembly distributes 300 dual desks to basic schools

The Adentan Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region has distrib­uted about 300 dual desks to basic schools in the area.

The desks, donated by the Gha­na Education Service (GES), are to help promote education in the municipality.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Adentan, Mr Daniel Al­exander Adumuah, presenting the desks, urged the school authorities to take good care of them.

According to him, even though the municipality was in need of educational materials, it would not accept any item that could pose a threat or cause danger to the pupils.

The previous desks presented, Nii Noi Adumuah said, had to be returned because some of the bolt and nuts were so protruding that some caused harm to the children, while others were already rusting, adding, “The manufacturer must ensure that the desks do not pose danger to the children else they would not be accepted”.

Nii Noi Adumuah stated that the municipality would not accept any educational material that does not meet the safety standards needed to give the pupils a peaceful environment to learn without any hindrance.

“Any educational material that is not fit for purpose must not be admitted in our schools because the safety of the pupils is para­mount to everything that we do,” he added.

He indicated that the munici­pality was making giant strides in the educational sector and urged philanthropists, corporate insti­tutions and spirited individuals to partner the government and the assembly to provide holistic educa­tion towards meeting the expecta­tion of all stakeholders.

“It is my fervent call to spirited individuals and corporate institu­tions to support the assembly in any form so that collectively every child benefit from the govern­ment’s free education policy,” he added.

The Deputy Director, Ad­ministration and Finance at the Municipal Education Directorate, Mrs Dinah Osam-Tewiah, said the gesture would go a long way to address some of the teething problems confronting education in the area.

The area, she explained, had over 36 basic schools with enrolment increasing rapidly, adding, “That is why this gesture is most welcome and also using this opportunity to appeal for more as in the case of Oliver Twist”.
