Teaching Assistants from the College of Engineering have donated two flat screen desktop computers, exercise books and pens to the students of Nkwankwanua DA Junior High School. The presentation, valued at nine hundred Ghana Cedis (GHC 900), was presented on 25th February, 2016.
Mr. Elvis Twumasi, a member of the team, stated that they visited the Director of Education, Sekyere East District, Effiduase, to inquire about deprived schools which lacked ICT materials. He stated that a list of schools was given to them by the Director, Nana Otuo Acheampong, to select from.
Ms. Edith Ghunney, the leader of the team, presented the items to the school on behalf of all the teaching assistants. She said that some schools lacked ICT materials even after the introduction of ICT in our education system. They therefore contributed the amount to purchase these items to the school. She hoped that the donation would help build the lives of the students and motivate them to learn harder.
Mr. Martin Nsiah, PRO from the Education Office, stated that the computers would be used to improve teaching and learning especially in ICT. He showed appreciation to the teaching assistants for their great effort.
Mr. Anokye Takyi, Headmaster of Nkwankwanua DA JHS, thanked the team for such kindness. He promised that they would use the computers well to improve the ICT performance of the students. He urged the students to learn hard because it was a great and selfless act from the teaching assistants who receive only allowances.
Nana Yaw Gyimah, Gyaasehene, expressed his appreciation to the team for the donation. He advised the students especially the females to perform well in their academics to make the community proud.
