Garu-Tempane District to make ICT interesting
Garu-Tempane (U/E), OCT. 9, GNA – Mr Alfred Akoka, District Chief Executive for Garu-Tempane, has said his outfit was committed to make the teaching and learning of Information Communication Technology (ICT) more attractive to students in the district.
He said the assembly had plans to connect all communities in the district to the national grid to make the teaching and learning of ICT easy.
Mr Akoka said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Garu after the Assembly’s second ordinary secession on Thursday.
He said the rural electrification project was under way and about 1,000 high and 5,000 low tension poles had been secured for the project, adding that the contractors were on site and about 10 communities had been connected.
Mr. Akoka said every school in the district would be provided with an ICT instructor, computers and their accessories so as to bring the learning of ICT to the door steps of every student.
The DCE said the assembly had put in place measures to enforce, monitor and supervise the conduct of schools to raise educational standards in the district, adding that the assembly would enact by-laws to restrain children from roaming about after 2000 hours.
Mr Akoka said disciplinary measures including withholding of salaries and dismissal of teachers had been put in place to deter teachers from indulging in drunkenness, and absenteeism, among others.
The Coordinating Director for the Assembly Alhaji Abduliah Abubakari, said since government could not bring development alone, the assembly was collaborating with some development partners including World Vision Ghana and CAMFED to empower the people in the area economically and supported the educational sector by providing classroom blocks in two communities in the district.
He said World Vision had provided dual desks, school uniforms and had assisted the assembly to drill bore holes for the provision of portable drinking water for the people.
