The Member of parliament for Asikuma Odoben Brakwa has donated 200 bags of cements to the Management of Breman Asikuman Senior High School (SHS) to improve upon the school’s infrastructure.

Authorities of the Breman Asikuma Senior High School (BASS) in the Central Region have been compelled to use the school’s dining hall as an additional examination centre, forcing boarding students to eat in the open during their examination period.

This is the result of the lack of an assembly hall complex to serve as an examination centre when the school is conducting internal examinations.

The Headmistress of the school, Madam Sabina Sylvia Forson, made this known when the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa Constituency, Mrs Georgina Nkrumah Aboah, presented 200 bags of cement to the school.

The presentation was the MP’s support towards the construction of the Golden Jubilee Complex project initiated by the school as part of the celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary this year.

When completed, the project would have an assembly hall, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) centre and a modern library.

Madam Forson expressed gratitude to the MP, adding that the gesture would enhance the early completion of the project.

She appealed, particularly to past students of the school, to support the development of their alma mater by contributing towards the completion of the project.

She noted that there were inadequate accommodation facilities for teachers, adding that only six out of the many teachers stayed on campus to supervise the 1,500 boarding students.

Making the presentation on behalf of the MP, the District Chief Executive for Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa, Mr Samuel Adom Botchway, said the MP had resolved to ensure that most of the needs of the school were provided to enhance teaching and learning.

He advised the students to reciprocate the huge investments made by their parents and the government in their education and study hard to achieve their aspiration.
