A three classroom block constructed by the Garu-Tempane District Assembly at a cost of GH¢80,000 (¢300 million) for the Zamballa Primary School, has been inaugurated.

The assembly has also handed over an Early Childhood Development Centre built at a cost of (¢490 million to the Akara community. The centre has a three-unit classroom block, a kitchen, an office a storeroom and toilet facility.

Prior to the construction of the school block at Zamballa, the over 300 pupils from classes one to six were studying under sheanut trees surrounding the school. The construction of the classroom block has therefore been a big relief to parents pupils and teachers of the school.

At Zamballa, the District Chief Executive for Garu-Tempane Mr Emmanuel S. Asigri, said although the assembly did not budget for the project this year, the assembly found it necessary to construct it because we realised that, it was very bad for pupils to have their lessons under trees.

At Akara, Mr Asigri said the provision of the school block and other infrastructure in the district was a result of the effective local government system being practised in the country.

He said the district, assembly would continue to play its part to ensure that all the communities had their share of the development cake.

Mr Asigri stated that the number of teachers serving in the district would increase in the next academic year since teacher-trainees sponsored by the assembly in the various teacher training colleges had graduated and were prepared to serve the district.

The District Director of Education, Mr Eugene Zongo-Naah Domah, said the directorate continued to enjoy great support from the assembly and other donor partners who were contributing positively to raise educational standards in the district.

He said the donation of motorbikes in the district recently had impacted positively on the supervision and monitoring activities of the directorate.

Mr. Domah called on parents to continuesly monitor their children’s academic progress by visiting the schools regularly. He also urged parents to parents to provide them with their basic needs since the Capitation Grant could not provide all their needs.

Mr. Domah later distributed school uniforms and exercise books donated by the Department for International Development, to 300 schoolchildren.
