The Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly has officially handed over two newly constructed and rehabilitated school blocks to the Ghana Education Service (GES) under the Gulf of Guinea Northern Regions Social Cohesion (SOCO) initiative.

The schools, located in the Atolisum and Dorongo communities, are designed to provide a conducive learning environment for students in the respective communities.

The SOCO Project aims to promote social cohesion and improve development in northern regions of Ghana. The 3-unit classroom block constructed at the Atolisum JHS has an office for the head teacher, a store, a 4-seater KVIP toilet, a 2-unit changing room for girls, a 2-unit urinal, 1 set of sofa chairs, 105 wooden mono desks, 6 teachers’ tables, and 13 teachers’ chairs.

At the Dorongo community, a 3-unit KG block which was in a deplorable state has been rehabilitated and furnished with 216 modern KG chairs, 36 hexagonal tables, 4 tables for teachers, 6 chairs for teachers, and 4 lockable cupboards.

At a short ceremony to hand over the facilities to the GES, the Municipal Chief Executive, Rex Asanga, expressed his gratitude for the quality of work done, describing education as a priority for his outfit, hence the need to invest more in the sector.

According to Mr. Asanga, the constructed and rehabilitated JHS and KG school blocks will significantly improve the educational outcomes of the children.

“Education is a priority for us. You can see that from the projects we are doing; education is taking a chunk of the money, and it is understandable given the state of our educational infrastructure that over the years has not seen much expansion and rehabilitation. So this SOCO project has come at a very good time, and we should be very grateful to His Excellency the President for this initiative.”

The Municipal Director of Education, Estella Kye-eboh, who received the keys to the schools and handed them over to the various head teachers, commended the assembly and SOCO for their efforts. She urged the management of the schools and the students to take good care of the facilities.

The head teacher of the Atolisum JHS, Martha Ateah, expressed her appreciation for the Assembly’s efforts. Mrs. Ateah believes the new JHS block will improve the quality of education and enrollment.

The entourage, made up of SOCO officials, MoFA staff, and staff of the municipal assembly, also inspected two completed mechanized boreholes mounted with 3,500-liter tanks in Azimsim and Dawmeo communities. The mechanized boreholes are intended for irrigation purposes, aimed at enhancing agricultural productivity in those areas.

Alhaji Danladi Salifu, SOCO zonal engineer, was enthused about the work done so far. He said similar projects are under construction and would be handed over soon, as well as the awarding of new projects under SOCO phase II.
