Government has donated 25 colour television sets to Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) in the Talensi Nab-dam District of the Upper East Region, to enable them to have access to the Presidential Special Initiative on Distance learning programme.

The beneficiaries included Presentation JSS, Nangodi JSS, Kongo JSS, Pwalugu JSS, Wobil JSS and Gbeogo School for the Deaf.

In addition, UNICEF donated 18 tricycles to the Talensi Nab-dam District Directorate of Education for distribution to disabled pupils in the area to facilitate their movement to schools.

Mr. Francis A. Ayaaba, District Director of Education who distributed the items to the beneficiaries, thanked the Government and UNICEF for their kind gesture and said the items would help enhance the academic performance of school children in the area.

He said, this was a clear indication that the Government and other stakeholders were committed to achieving quality education in the country, and urged students to take their studies seriously to enable them to become responsible citizens in future.

The District Director also announced that the Education Directorate had received 18,000 exercise books from the District Assembly, which were being distributed to the various Junior Secondary Schools in the area to enhance quality academic performance.

Mr. Ayaaba commended the two Members of Parliament (MPs) from the area, Mr. John Tia and Mr. Moses Asaga, for providing 900 school attendant registers to the Directorate and said it would help monitor the children’s attendance to schools.

He announced that the District Directorate would soon open three additional Junior Secondary Schools and six primary schools in the District to enable children to gain easy access to education.

He entreated parents to ensure that all children of school-going age were enrolled in schools and emphasized that it was crucial for parents, teachers, government and the society at large to ensure that children were sent to school for accelerated national development.

He appealed to the beneficiaries to ensure that the items were used the purpose for which they were meant, and to take good care of them to prolong their lifespan.
Mr. Ayaaba urged communities in the district who could not use the television sets due to the absence of electricity supply to ensure that they got connected to the national power grid to enable them to also benefit from the sets.

Mr. Francis Andiba, headmaster for the School for the Deaf, on behalf of his colleagues thanked the Government and UNICEF for the donations, saying it would help promote education in the district. He promised that the items would be properly maintained.
