A 12-Unit classroom storey building with staff common room, computer laboratory, mechanized underground water facility and 24 water closet toilet facility which was built following the re-construction of the Accra-Kumasi road has been commissioned in the Suhum Municipality.
The school project was commissioned at a cost of GHC1.2 Million
The school project was initiated after it was discovered that the old would be affected by the construction project, hence the new block to pave way for demolition of the old.
Madam Rebecca Larbi, the Acting Suhum Municipal Director of Education, at the ceremony tasked teachers in the country to demonstrate high sense of professionalism in the discharge of their duties.
She said the significant and immense contributions of teachers in transforming the generation of young people into literate and empowering individuals to be self-reliant could only be achieved when they discharge their work professionally.
She lamented that the state of unprofessional attitude such as laziness, lateness and misappropriation of lesson hours for private activities among others have characterized the noble teaching profession in recent times.
Madam Larbi noted the dilapidated school as time went on needed rescuing because of large enrolments, a helper to provide the type of infrastructure that would meet the demands like the new one constructed”.
She further advised students to eschew laziness and become regular and punctual to school, do all exercises, exhibit high sense of discipline and commitment as well as remaining focused in their studies.
Hon. Samuel Kwabi, the Suhum MCE on his behalf said, it was a project which he fought and suffered for before, during and after its completion.
Mr. Kwabi told the gathering “I was wrongly insulted, attacked and taken to court for my overwhelming quest to bring development including this project to Suhum. Today, my detractors would see that after all, I was fighting for their own good and the good of the municipality.”
“With with newly built classroom block and the modern computer laboratory, I know that you will agree with me wholeheartedly when I say that it was money well spent”.
The MCE finally, tasked all and sundry to put their shoulders to the wheel towards reaching a common consensus for the total development of the municipality.
