CHIEF
EXECUTIVE of the Amansie South District Assembly, in the Ashanti Region, has
implored Ghanaian children to see the Free Senior High School policy being
implemented by the Akufo Addo government as a great opportunity for them to
acquire life-changing education.

William
Asante Bediako said the NPP government is very much committed to investing in
the education of Ghanaian students, and reminded them of their responsibility
to make good use of the opportunity.

“The
government is spending so much money and we want you to make good use of the
opportunity. We will have ourselves to blame if we relax and play,” he said.

The
DCE who was speaking at the maiden graduation ceremony for the final year
students of Manso Adubia Senior High School at Manso Adubia recently said
President Akufo Addo’s desire is to make every Ghanaian literate.

He
said the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy, redefinition of
the basic education, extension of the school feeding programme, construction of
classrooms and other projects are testimonies of government’s efforts to
achieve its set objectives.

The
construction of three GETfund projects: one storey girls’ dormitory, a 12- unit
classroom block and a canteen with kitchen facilities proves government’s
readiness to equip the school with the necessary infrastructure.

Mr.
Bediako, who is an alumnus of the school, promised to grant scholarships to
best students to pursue tertiary education.

He
presented a motorbike to the school for their administrative functions.

The
headmaster of the school, Baiden Ofosuhene, who received the motorbike, thanked
the DCE for the kind gesture and gave the assurance that it would be put to
good use.

He
thanked the president, education minister, the DCE and other stakeholders for
their concerted efforts to bring relevant infrastructural development to the
school.

The
headmaster appealed to the government and stakeholders to help complete the
boys’ bungalow, and construct a modern dining hall and toilet facilities for
both male and female students.

District Director of Education for Manso Nkwanta, Kwabena Owusu, speaking on the theme: “Supporting our alma mater: Old students’ factor,” said that a school cannot make any progress without the corporate and collective support of old students.
