The Wa Municipal Assembly has since 2009 spent GH¢557,535.70 to provide classroom blocks for basic schools in the Municipality as part of Government’s effort to improve educational infrastructure.

The projects were executed with funds from the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), the District Development Fund (DDF) as well as the District Wide Assistance Programme (DWAP).

Mr Yakubu Duogu, Wa Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), made this known at Kadowli during the distribution of 2,000 free school uniforms and over 79,388 free exercise books to basic schools within the Municipality.

The MCE said education is the number one development priority of the Assembly and the gesture was not only aimed at creating a conducive environment for teaching and learning, but also to reduce the difficulty children normally encountered when trekking to near by communities to attend school.

He said Nakore, Guli, Kperisi, Gbegru, Boli and Wa-Sombo were currently benefiting from a six-unit classroom block each through GETFUND funding while Kadowli, Wa Model, Konjiehi, Bamahu, Sagu, Adabiyat would each get a three-unit classroom block each under the DDF.

Mr Duogu said, additionally, furniture was provided for each school
block as a clear departure from the past where attention was placed on construction of such facilities only for children to lie on their bellies to write.

The MCE appealed to the Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) and the
School Management Committees (SMCs) to complement government’s effort by initiating infrastructure management systems to take care of repairs.

This, he noted, would spare government the ordeal of undertaking
rehabilitation, which sometimes proved to be even more costly.

Mr Duogu again appealed to all parents to cultivate the habit of
visiting their wards in school in order to demonstrate their love and care and commitment towards their proper upbringing in their schools.
