Community gets ‘kindergarten relief’ after many years


After several years in deprived school infrastructure, pupils of a local community school now have facility to be proud of.

The Obuasi-Anyinam Methodist Kindergarten School initially had a deplorable structure for its kindergarten, authorities say.

But a worldwide giant in industrial productivity solutions handed over a four-unit classroom block to the school.

The company, noted to have been supporting Ghana’s educational sector over the years, presented the block to the school’s authorities last Tuesday alongside 100 pieces of dual desks and four cupboards.

Ms Gladys Mante, communication officer of the company, who officially cut the tape to hand-over the block at a brief ceremony at Anyinam, lauded the healthy collaboration that existed between the community leaders and the company.

The Human Resource Manager of the Company, Ms Susana Manu, who addressed the gathering, noted that education at the early stages of life should be of utmost importance to parents, teachers and the community at large.

She explained that children at kindergarten level are at their crucial stage of development, which is why persons and institutions, which depended on society, should be more interested in children’s affairs.

Later in a brief interview with the Ghana News Agency, Ms Manu said Atlas Copco believes education is the best engine for personal development and that it would continue to sustain its huge investments in the sector to complement Government’s efforts.

Mr Kofi Mensah, the Public Relations Officer of the Municipal Education Directorate, urged the school authorities to demonstrate true commitment and dedication to their work so that the investment made by the company yielded results.

Mr Kofi Dwomo-Asubonteng, Obuasi Municipal Coordinating Director, stressed the need for a good culture of maintenance to be upheld in the school.

Atlas Copco Ghana is a global giant in the business of selling and servicing construction and mining equipment.
