The Bolgatanga East District Assembly has handed over 400 dual desks to selected basic schools in the area. 

It is a part of the assembly’s attempts to improve education quality by addressing the lack of furniture in elementary schools.

Speaking to A1 Radio after the brief handing over ceremony, the District Chief Executive, David Amoah explained that the aim was to end the canker of pupils lying on the floor to learn. 

He said, “The goal is to end the furniture deficit as soon as possible in the various schools. Yes, the Assembly last year did a similar donation to some nurseries and KG schools and we thought that this batch would go to the primaries and Junior High Schools. Through Get-Fund, we have been able to get 200 dual desks and the Assembly, too, was able to procure an additional 200 making it 400 dual desks. I know it is not enough, but half a loaf is better than none. But we will not rest here, the Assembly will continue to fight to improve and end this canker.”

He encouraged the school heads and teachers to make good use of the furniture.

“…you all know that this government is committed when it comes to the educational sector. So, let us have faith in the government for quality education. But, I want to call on the heads and teachers that they should handle the furniture very well. Please do not say because it is for the government then you don’t care. Let us exhibit our maintenance culture. As we teach the children.”

The district, according to the education directorate, has close to 57 basic schools. But the challenge of the furniture deficit continues to linger on in all the schools. 

Appreciating the gesture, the District Director of the Ghana Education Service, George Asira also used the opportunity to call on parents to ensure their wards commit their lives to education.

“Education is gold, so I will stand here to entreat parents to allow their wards to go to school. Encourage and let them understand that it is only education that can give them a successful future. So, they should value their books.”
