Agona West MP supports school
The Member of Parliament for the Agona West Constituency in the Central Region, Lawyer Charles Obeng-Inkoom, has presented four sets of jerseys, sets of goal posts, two footballs and quantities of exercise books to his alma mater, the Agona Abodom Anglican Basic School in the Agona West Municipality.
The items, worth GH¢4000, were donated to the school at a short ceremony last Friday.
Making the presentation, Mr Obeng-Inkoom said that he would ensure that the conditions in the school would be improved to enhance teaching and learning.
He said since he left the school in 1973, not much had been done in terms of provision of infrastructure and promised to facilitate the construction of a six-unit classroom block to accommodate both JHS and kindergarten pupils.
The lack of adequate classroom blocks has forced the school authorities to divide a classroom into two for classes four and five and another to accommodate both classes one and two.
The JHS students also study in a dilapidated wooden structure which gets flooded anytime it rains.
After being taken round the school by the headmaster, Mr Obeng-Inkoom described the situation as ‘an impediment to academic work.’
He assured the school authorities that more classroom blocks would be constructed and the entire school would be fenced to protect the school land from encroachment.
The headmaster, Mr Samuel Amponsah, expressed his gratitude to the MP for the items and his desire to acquaint himself with the challenges facing his former school.
He appealed to the MP to expedite action to ensure that the six-unit classroom block was constructed as early as possible.
The MP also presented 30 bags of cement to support the construction of a two-unit classroom block at the Agona Kunkurantumi AMA Basic School.
