Apam Salvation Army Schools get new blocks
Apam (C/R), Feb. 16, GNA - Two school blocks constructed for the Apam Salvation Army Primary and Junior Secondary schools at the cost of 30,000 dollars were on Tuesday handed over to the authorities of the schools.
The funding for the project was raised by some school kids in Sweden in response to an appeal by the Salvation Army Church to that country.
Mr Gordon Simpons, General Manager of the Education Unit of the Salvation Army, said the his outfit had decided to abolish the shift system in its schools because it was not convenient for effective academic work.
Mr Simpson appealed to the beneficiary pupils and their teachers to let the new buildings impact on the academic work of the school.
Miss Theresa Paidoo, Gomoa District School Health Education Programme (SHEP) Co-ordinator, said provision of the buildings by pupils from far away Sweden should serve as a challenge to the District Directorate of Education and the District Assembly to provide furniture and materials needed to enhance effective studies in the two schools. Nana Edu Effrim X, Chief of Apam, donated 20 acres of land to the church for the establishment of a secondary school.
