Deputy Minister presents science equipment to 4 SHSs in C/R

The Ministry of Education has donated a variety of science equipment to four Senior High Schools (SHS) in the Central Region.

The equipment, comprising science equipment and laboratory chemicals, were to aid the schools in the effective teaching and learning of science-related courses in the schools.

The beneficiary schools are Assin Manso SHS at Assin Manso, Obiri Yeboah SHS at Assin Fosu, Assin State College at Assin Breku and Assin North SHS/Technical at Asempanaye within the Central Region

The Deputy Minister of Education, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, presenting the items said the donation was part of a national equipment distribution by the Education Ministry to selected SHSs nationwide.

He explained that the donation was a result of the government’s prioritisation of the teaching and learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Rev. Fordjour was hopeful that the government would be able to change the current 40:60 ratio in the teaching and learning of humanities to 60:40 for the sciences since STEM held the key to the faster economic transformation of every country.

The Headmaster of Assin North SHS, Mr Festus Mensah, receiving the donation on behalf of the schools lauded the government for the donation which he said would go a long way to enhance the teaching and learning of sciences in their schools.

Present at the presentation ceremony were District and Municipal Directors of Education, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCE), Heads of Institutions and other stakeholders.
