Vume-Kpoviadzi gets 10 computers
Vume-Kpoviadzi, Feb 22, GNA -The North-Tongu District Assembly on Tuesday donated 10 computers and accessories to the Vume-Kpoviadzi District Assembly (DA) cluster of schools.
The computers were among 100 pieces bought and distributed among Senior High Schools in the District.
Mr Gilbert Tamakloe and Mr Thomas Ahorsu, Head-teachers for the JHS and Primary units respectively, said hitherto ICT lessons had been largely theoretical.
Mr Ahorsu said there were 250 pupils in the Primary school, while Mr Tamakloe said the JHS had 120 students.
Alhaji Bubey Dzinadu, District Chief Executive (DCE) who handed over the computers to the School stressed that the District Assembly would not shirk its responsibility towards any community within its administrative area.
He lauded the self-help spirit of the people of Kpoviadzi, who with the help of donors, constructed classroom blocks for the school and a community clinic.
Alhaji Dzinadu said government was undertaking many development projects in the area, including road re-constructions and building of new feeder roads and the extension of electricity to communities.
He urged the pupils to use the computers profitably to improve their knowledge base, promising many more computers would be supplied to the schools in the area in due course.
Apostle Senyo Cudjoe, Assembly member for the area expressed misgivings about the dwindling standards of education in Vume-Kpoviadzi, which used to be the citadel of scholarship in the past.
He called on parents to show interest in the education of their children and cater for the welfare of teachers posted to the town.
Mr Cudjoe, who is also the Presiding Member (PM) of the North-Tongu District Assembly, has personally recruited and put on monthly stipend, two auxiliaries to augment the teaching staff of the Junior High School (JHS) there.
He also provided free accommodation for two teachers in the town.
Mr Ben Atieku, Regent of Kpoviadzi while thanking government for the offer of computers urged it to facilitate the posting of teachers to the town.
He said pupils of the school had potentials but lacked teachers to develop them.
Mr Atieku described the four per cent pass recorded by the school in last year's BECE as abysmal.
