ACADEMIC WORK in public schools in the Manhyia South Constituency, in the Kumasi Metropolis, has been given a massive boost as schools in the area have received timely support.
A total of 420 mono desks, 370 dual desks and 250 KG tables have been distributed among the public schools in the constituency to enable the pupils feel comfortable in class and study to become brilliant.
The largesse was made possible following the intervention of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who is popularly known as ‘Napo’ in the political circles.
Napo disclosed that he was able to procure the items through support from his share of the MPs GETFUND, adding that the donation is to help boost teaching and learning in the schools.
Napo expressed his personal phylosophy that education is the best tool to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor, therefore he would continually invest in promoting teaching and learning in his constituency.
Napo, who doubles as Ghana’s Education Minister, said he had in the past donated educational materials such as computers, reading books, note books and other items to help improve teaching and learning.
Mr. David Oppong, the Kumasi Metro Director of Education, who received the items, lauded Napo for his passion to improve education, promising to maintain the highest maintenance culture.
The beneficiary schools are KO Methodist Primary A and B, New Tafo Dichemso MA/JHS, Odumasi Ext MA Basic, St, Anne’s Anglican JHS, Konadu Yiadom MA Basic, Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Primary and others.
