Jachie (Ash), July 26, GNA - The Administrator of GET Fund has released 329 million cedis for the completion of the dinning hall of the Jachie-Pramso Seconday School.
The project involves the renovation and expansion of the dinning hall to ease congestion.
Mr Bright Addai Mununkum, Bosomtwe-Atwima-Kwanwoma District Chief Executive who announced this said the release of the money showed the government's determination to develop every school. He announced this, when he visited the institution as part of his tour of senior secondary schools, which serve as examination centres for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) in the district, on Tuesday.
Nana Minta Bowak, Headmaster, told the DCE that a total of 276 students were writing the examination.
He said the school needed a bus to transport the students from surrounding communities, explaining that out of 1,567 over 800 of them were day students.
Nana Minta said the bus would help them to get to school on time. The DCE also visited the Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Girls Secondary School at Trabuom, where Mrs Victoria Annan, headmistress told him that of the 177 students, 109 were boys and 68 were girls. She said the boys were the last batch since the institution had changed into a girls' school.
She appealed to the GET Fund for assistance to renovate and expand the assembly hall to contain the growing population and the construction of an administration block.
Mrs Annan called for the provision of more accommodation for tutors, since a bungalow to house one tutor now housed three. She expressed her appreciation to Dr Mathew Antwi, MP for the area for providing the five electric poles and eight bulbs for the school's street light project.
