The Assembly has begun an exercise to renovate abandoned educational infrastructure, especially classrooms, encourage students, teachers and parents to give off their best on their roles and heighten the monitoring and supervisory roles of circuit officers.

She made this known when she inspected and handed over four educational facilities including four three-unit renovated classroom blocks for the Baribari Primary and Junior High Schools, and a newly constructed six-unit classroom block for the Winamzua cluster of schools to the Education Directorate at Bawku in the Upper East Region.

The MCE said the decision was part of government’s commitment in seeking to create enabling environment that would facilitate effective teaching and learning and ensure that pupils were provided with quality formal education through effective and efficient management of resources.

Hajia Ninchemah presenting the facilities to the education directorate expressed optimism that with policies such as the free Senior High School system, the installation of the teacher trainee allowances among others would enable the country achieve good educational standards.

She noted that education was the bedrock for national development and the country’s economy would only grow when stakeholders such as parents, educational authorities and the local authorities supported the educational system to sustain and produce refined and skilled labour for the country.

The MCE charged parents to invest in the education of their wards, especially the education of the Girl-Child as it was a good investment that would bring in enormous results for their personal gains and the community.

She urged Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) to ensure that the facilities were put to good use to uplift the falling standards of education in the area.
