The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) has handed over a one storey building complex to the Presbyterian Women’s College of Education (PWCE) in Aburi.

The ground floor of the facility would be used as a dining hall while the upper floor will be used as a lecture or examination hall.

The facility, which was constructed by FABMON Limited at a cost of approximately GHC 513, 0000 was started in 2010, and has two modern kitchenettes where meals would be prepared and served for the students.

It would help alleviate the plight of the students who used to dine in an old fashioned dining hall which was not spacious enough to contain many students at a time, and would enhance teaching and learning in the college as the students would learn in a conducive and spacious lecture hall.

Speaking at a ceremony to hand over the keys of the facility to the school authorities in Aburi, the Principal of the school, Ms Grace Manubea Ansah, said she was grateful to the government and all stakeholders for the construction of the facility.

She said that the old building where the students used as dining hall was built by the Bassel Missionary , who used it as a small church, and that the school had been using the place as their dining hall until the facelift of the colleges of education, which had given them the opportunity to convert the structure into a storey building to serve a dual purpose.

According to her, the students would now have their meals at a conducive place where their health would not be at stake as well as have a conducive place for studies, and that alone would help improve the academic performance of the students.

She pledged her commitment to ensure that the facility was taken good care of, and expressed optimism that the facility would go a long way to benefit the students, teachers and the whole country at large.

Mr Kabutei Nartey, a principal consultant of Arch Options, the consultancy firm that carried out the project, urged the management of the school to see to it that the facility was well maintained to become a very useful asset for the whole country.

The PWCE Governing council chairman, Rev J.O.Y Mante, thanked the GETFund for their support to the school to ensure that the students have good facilities to enhance their well being in the college.

He appealed to the management of the college and the students to keep an eye on the facility to ensure that it was well kept for others to also have the opportunity to use it in future.
