The headmaster of the school Mr. Edem Tawiah Morrison on behalf of the entire school community expressed his gratitude for the initiative granted them by the government.

He further commended the contractor for completing the project despite the challenges he encountered due to land litigation.

The headmaster of the school appealed to the DCE to secure the land for the school to avoid future uncertainties. He also appealed for
teachers’ bungalow explaining that teachers leave very far from the town and thus making it difficult for teaching and learning to be effective.

He indicated that despite the accommodation challenges, teachers at the school do their best to make sure the students perform excellently in their BECE performances.

He also added that Poor road network also deters newly posted teachers from coming to the school hence appealed to the government to help with the poor nature of the roads.

The headmaster hinted that, construction of the school’s JHS block and ICT block has been halted for some time and therefore pleaded with the DCE to release the contractor to site to complete the two projects.

The headmaster also acknowledged how wonderfully the school performs in their sporting activities especially in crickets and handball.

He also pleaded with the DCE and the District Director of Education to help one of his students who gained admission into the Manya Krobo SHS but could not because the family was unable to raise funds to cater for her needed items.

The District Director of Education in her remarks informed the gathering that proper sanitation promotes good health, hence charged the school to take full control of the facility and make sure to always keep it tidy.

She also sounded a word of caution to the community members telling them the facility is purposely for the school and not the community and so the school authority together with the PTA chairman should ensure that the facility is well utilized.

She also added that, the project is designed for all schools in the Asuogyaman District and hopes all schools will get their share of the national cake soon.

The DCE in his remarks commended the school for their educational and sporting performance and was very impress with the many trophies the school has won, however he was saddened to hear that one of the brilliant students in the school who gained admission into the Manya Krobo Senior High School was unable to make it due to lack of funds.

He noted that Tortibo DA School was one of the best schools in the district and therefore it was improper for students to sit at home without furthering their education and therefore asked the headmaster of the school to write to the Education Directorate for further action be taken

On the issue of the teacher’s accommodation, he acknowledge the fact that the district needs bungalows for teachers and Tortibo D /A Basic School is part of the list of the schools that will be benefitting from the project.

He again commended the school and assures them that their needs would be met.
