He encouraged parents to provide their children with the needed educational materials to make the investments worthwhile.
He commended the teachers and parents for their efforts towards enhancing academic performance and discipline at the school.
Nana Obutu said education brings progress and national development and appealed to the West Akim Municipal Assembly to assist the only school in the town with infrastructure and also asked the Educational Directorate to provide the school with teaching aids.
