Non-Governmental Organisation, Education Development Organisation (EDO) based in Japan, has handed over a ¢460 million three-unit Primary and Junior Secondary School block it has constructed to the Pwalugu community in the Talensi Nab-dam District of the Upper East region.

It addition, the NGO presented education and learning materials including books, school bags, pens, pencils, mathematical sets and sports’ kits to the school.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at the presentation ceremony at Pwalugu, the Executive Director of EDO, Dr Augustine A. Awuni, noted that the best legacy one could bequeath to children was education that was why he decided to put up the school for the community.

He said he decided to forego his PHD programme in Japan to concentrate on the sourcing of funds to build the school. Dr. Awuni entreated the staff and school children to adopt the culture of maintenance by taking good care of the school and the learning materials.

He also appealed to the teachers to ensure that discipline and higher academic performance was maintained in the school.

The District Director of Education for Talensi-Nabdam, Mr. Francis Ayaba, commended EDO for establishing the school, saying "it was one of the schools in the district, which has the largest enrolment figure".

He assured EDO that the school would take good care of the building and learning materials. Mr Ayaba stressed the need for teachers to redouble their efforts in teaching and maintaining discipline in the school.

The Talensi Nabdam District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Sabastian Bisnab, in a speech read for him by the District Coordinating Director, Mr Fuseini Alhassan, noted that with the introduction of the School feeding programme and the Capitation Grant, school enrolment had increased tremendously hence the demand for more classrooms.

He commended EDO for complementing Government’s efforts to raise the standard of education.
