Work commences on 3-Unit classroom block for Atomic Cluster of Schools

Minister for Procurement and deputy Majority Leader, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has cut the sod to commence the construction of a one storey 3-Unit Classroom Block for Atomic Hills Cluster of Schools.
 
The facility, when completed will have a library, an ICT lab and a KVIP. It is expected to be completed within twelve months.
 
Adwoa Safo, who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabena constituency, told journalists that she was touched by the school’s academic excellence despite having limited classroom blocks which has resulted in congestion among the student body.
 
With a population of 1,400, about 70 pupils occupy one classroom, a situation which according to the deputy Majority Leader, does not encourage good teaching practices as well as convenience in the classroom.
 
The Dome-Kwabenya lawmaker also donated some textbooks to assit the pupils, especially, those who will be writing the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) this year, adequately prepare for the exams.
 
The Headmistress of the school, Madam Felicia Obeng Boateng, commenting on the gesture said due to the academic excellence of the school, it has been the desire of most parents to bring their wards to the school, thereby, putting pressure on the few existing facilities.
 
This, she noted, has in turn put pressure on management of the school to expand the facilities to accommodate the ever increasing population.
 
She expressed gratitude towards the gesture but pleaded to the MP to come to their aid once again by constructing a fence wall around the school.
 
According to her, the pupils have periodically, come under attacks by dogs and mentally challenged persons.
