Kwahu Afram Plains North to get Community SHS [Ghana News Agency]

(Ghana News Agency Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Mem-Chemfre (E/R), Aug. 29, GNA - Mr Antwi Boasiako-Sekyere, Eastern Regional Minister, has cut the sod for the construction of a four-storey Community Senior High School (SHS) at Mem-Chemfre, a rural community in the Kwahu Afram Plains North District.

The Community School  is strategically located to benefit other surrounding areas such as Agortime, Avatime, Agodeke and Bruben among other farming and fishing communities along the Volta Lake as well as people of the Dwarf and the Dodi-Deja Islands in the District.

The STAR Ghana-GNA Media Auditing and Tracking of Development team observed the sod-cutting ceremony which was joyously welcomed by the chiefs and people of Mem-Chemfre.

The construction of the facility would be done by Aquila International Limited, a Ghanaian construction firm, which would comprise a 24 Classroom Unit block, two libraries and four science laboratories.

It would also contain 11 separate offices, 12 stores, two Information and Communication Technology (ICT) centres and a 12-seater toilet facility.

Addressing the elated gathering, Mr Boasiako-Sekyere, announced that the government had the people of those communities at heart and therefore endeavoured to let them enjoy some of the national cake.

He said the government would not renege on its efforts to offer children the best of quality education so that they would become assets for the development of their community and the country as a whole.

Mr Matthew Nyarko, the lead contractor, said the construction works which is expected to complete in 18 months would provide employment for the community members since they would form the labour force for the project.

Mr Gabriel Adu, the District Director for Education, welcomed the intervention and implored parents in Mem-Chemfre and the surrounding communities to endeavour to send their children to school since education was the best gift they could bequeath their wards.

The GNA gathered that the community has only one Primary and a Junior High School which serves over 500 pupils.

Appreciating the efforts of the government for the Community SHS, the Chief of the area, also appealed for more Primary and JHS blocks to meet the educational  needs of the increasing number of children in the area.
