Schools in Leklebi-Duga receive school material

GNA

Leklebi Duga, July 11, GNA - The Leklebi Education Trust Fund on Sunday presented writing materials worth 12 million cedis to 11 basic schools in the traditional area.

The items include exercise books pencils, pens and erasers. The schools include Leklebi Duga, Kame, Dafor, Fiape and Agbesia Evangelical Presbyterian Primary and Junior Secondary Schools (JSS). Presenting the items Prof Godfrey Komla Adanu, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Fund, said the presentation was to support the pupils in basic schools in the Leklebi Traditional Area.

He expressed concern over the fallen standards of education in the area and expressed the hope that the items would enhance teaching and learning.

Prof Adanu appealed to citizens of Leklebi, friends and all stakeholders in education to contribute to the Fund.

Mrs Jessie Agbozo, a retired educationist, said most of the schools in the area lacked English, Mathematics and Science textbooks. She said a survey conducted by the executives of the Fund revealed that 95 per cent of pupils in schools in the traditional area had few or no exercise books.

It was also found that pupils were not well fed before coming to school and this compels them to be "dashing home for food".
