The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kansena-Nankana West, Mr Gerard Ataogye, last Wednesday handed over four completed school projects to beneficiary communities with a call to parents and community leaders to pay constant visits to the schools.
He said this would enable them to know the challenges of the schools and offer the needed assistance.
Mr Ataogye also said the government had done its part by providing the schools with facilities that are critical in attaining academic excellence.
Chania R/C Primary School, one of the projects that was handed over on Wednesday, is a six-unit classroom block with a six-seater water closet toilet, fitted with a mechanised borehole, hand washing bay and a poly tank.
Paga English and Arabic Primary School also has the same facilities.
The new Saaka Junior High School (JHS) has other facilities like headmaster’s office, store room, staff common room and a six-seater water closet toilet with a mechanised borehole and an overhead water storage tank.
The last project that was also handed over to the people of Kajelo is the St. Oscar’s R/C Primary.
The six-unit classroom block also has ancillary facilities like a six-seater water closet toilet fitted with a mechanised borehole, hand washing bay and a poly tank.
Following the certification of the DCE’s technical officers that the Saaka and Kajelo projects were delivered to the contract’s specifications, Mr Ataogye commended the contractor, Mohadams Karimus Company Ltd for good work done.
He, however, noted that if the projects suffer any defects six months from the date they were handed over, the contractor would be held liable.
On her part, the Headmistress of the Kajelo R/C Primary, Madam Susana Ayiadana, lauded the government for the new school block and appealed to the Assembly to renovate the dilapidated teachers’ quarters.
