The District Chief Executive for Wa East District, Hon Ewurah Kandiah Suleman has Explained that teachers in Some Selected Schools within the District have no issues with Accomodation, he added efforts have also be put in place to find some teachers through education in order to support the District afterwards.
“Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, in the educational sector the District is performing creditably well and we need to sustain our efforts and strategies for better results. the Assembly over the years, have been implementing numerous interventions initiated by central governments in order to improve upon the quality of education in the District. They include the following:
The massive construction of classroom infrastructure to eliminate schools under trees, in order to create a conducive environment for teaching and learning,
The increase in the capitation grant,
Free Education for all basic and second cycle school children
The retargeting and expansion of the Ghana School Feeding Programme to cover many of our schools,
Provision of teachers accommodation in some selected schools,
Support to teacher trainees in the Training Colleges as a motivation for them to return to the District to improve teacher – pupil ratio, just to mention but a few.
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, to complement the effort of Assembly to get education move on smoothly in the District, the Bulenga Area Council donated fifty (50) pieces of furniture to some schools within its catchment area to help ease the furniture burden of those schools. I therefore urge its sister Funsi Area Council to emulate the shining example of Bulenga Area Council, and get some kind of support for schools around the Funsi belt.
The Hon. Member of Parliament, in collaboration with the District Assembly also donated a total of One Hundred and Forty (140) pieces of Dual-desk furniture to schools in some Seven (7) selected Communities with each beneficiary school receiving Twenty (20) pieces of the Dual desk furniture. The communities are: Funsi, Manwe, Bulenga, Kunyabin, Baayiri, Jeyiri and Loggu.
Let me once again appeal to communities and schools to own, and take good care of these facilities provided, in order to prolong their life span for the benefit of our Children.”
