The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) has supported 64 basic schools with 1,500 dual desks in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
Speaking at the event, the Metropolitan Chief Executive in Sekondi, Mr Abdul Mumin Issah, said a well-equipped classroom with the perfect furniture played a significant role in the effectiveness of pupils/students learning. He added that the Assembly was doing everything to ensure improvement in educational infrastructure within the metropolis.
He highlighted the government’s commitment to promoting holistic development through an optimal learning environment.
A good ambience, he said, contributed to the comfort, posture and support of students to concentrate and perform well academically.
Mr Mumin Issah emphasised that the gesture from GETFund would not be the last but a work in progress to cover other schools.
The STMA Metropolitan Director of Education, Madam Sally Nelly Coleman, said the gesture was timely and that schools that were in dire need of furniture would be serviced first.
“There are some newly constructed schools that need furniture and the mode of distribution would be mainly based on the needs assessment made by the directorate to ensure fairness,” she said.
