The Member of Parliament (MP) for Atwima Kwanwoma, Hon. Kofi Amankwa-Manu together with the District Chief Executive (DCE), Hon. Prince Karikari jointly commissioned a 3-unit classroom block at Anum Asamoah Senior High Technical School on Friday, May 31, 2024.

Addressing the ceremony, the MP explained the job done was part of his developmental agenda to help promote education and also in line with the government’s plan to make

education free and quality across Ghana. The law maker reiterated the NPP Government’s commitment to ensuring that the free senior high education policy continuous to be a huge success and thus encouraged all to support the idea for Ghanaian children. 

“As a product of education, it is a worry when l see people struggle through education, and l have pledged to find solutions to issues of this magnitude and make education accessible and easy to the people”, he said.

He further charged the students to take particular attention by ensuring that, they maintain the block for future usage because seeing them studying under tress and tents some six months ago sparked the conversation to come to their aid.

Mr. Amankwa-Manu emphasized that that, his office will continue to support in the area of education, security and health since they become the bedrock of every developed society which the constituency cannot be an exception.

The Deputy Minister appealed to all to put their shoulder to the wheel of development and invite everyone to support and contribute towards the development of the district and Ghana as a whole and not to leave all responsibilities on the central government.

The District Chief Executive, Mr. Prince Karikari also in his turn called on the school authorities to take good care of the facility because the assembly would want to see the school transform after the next five years and that the assembly will not relent on its efforts in supporting the school.

He used the occasion to admonish the students to take their studies critically since the future of the country depends on them as responsible people and take advantage of the free SHS policy to climb to the apex of the academic ladder, adding that, government has so far invested over 10 billion cedis into policy, and as well increased infrastructure in the educational sector.

According to the Headmistress of the school, Mrs. Rita Mensah, the school that started in 2013 with 6 boys as a day school, later turned into a mix school in 2015 and later absorbed by government in 2018, now has close to 500 students with numerous challenges. She said students studying under tress and canopies is a serious phenomenon which must be addressed with all hands coming on board as citizens.

Madam Rita Mensah stressed that the state of affairs put much pressure on the already inadequate infrastructure especially classroom blocks, hence their reason to resort to innovative ways of solving the classroom challenges such as mounting canopies as classroom space and learning under trees.

She appealed to all stakeholders to come to their aid in the areas of a science laboratory, ICT laboratory, dormitories as well as accessible road to the school. The headmistress pleased to announced that the 91 students who sat for the 2023 WASSCE examinations had 100 per cent pass rate which is a huge success for Anum Asamoah Senior High Technical School.
