The Municipal Chief Executive for Kwahu West Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo has expressed delight at the completion of a modern classroom block at Nkawanda No. 1 and implored the community members, teachers and the School Management Committee to put the facility to good use by cultivating the habit of proper maintenance culture.

The MCE said these when the Municipal Assembly handed over an ultra-modern classroom block costing around four hundred and fifty thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC 450,000.00) to the Nkawanda No. 1 M/A Primary School at Nkawanda in the Kwahu West Municipal Assembly. The facility has a modern water closet for pupils and teachers, a urinal and a bathhouse among others.

The MCE told the gathering that education is a shared responsibility between parents and teachers; imploring them to have a stake in the development of the children. He touted the achievements of the government in terms of development in the Municipality and said ¾ of the town roads are now being tarred and the government has even promised 15km of asphaltic roads.

He told the gathering that the commission of the block will halt the process of school children trekking long distances for JHS education after the completion of Primary School.

The Municipal Director of Education, Hayford Awuah advised that the maintenance of the facility should be of utmost priority to all.

Present at the commissioning were the MP for Nkawkaw, Hon. Joseph Frempong, the Municipal Coordinating Director, Peter Tetteh Kwablah, Decentralised Heads of Departments, Assembly members and some traditional authorities.

In an effort to help the final year pupils in our public schools to adequately prepare themselves for this free senior high education scheme, the Assembly and some NGOs are proposing to offer them free two-hour tuition each Saturday and Sunday, between 8 am to 10 am from next month until June next year when they go to write their Basic Education Certificate Examinations. This exercise is meant to let the children become adequately exposed and familiar with the BECE examination papers which they will ultimately encounter at the end of their course.”
