The District Chief Executive of Atiwa East, Atta Panyin Nkansa has applauded the Member of Parliament for the constituency for providing thousand dual desks to lower primary and Junior High schools in the district.

According to him, the MP Abena Osei-Asare has given a lot of scholarships to people in the district amounting to eighty-five thousand Ghana cedis last year alone to ensure the future of the youth are secured.

“When you get to most of our schools you would notice that the desk on which our children are sitting are not good and again we do not want to see our children sitting on the floor and writing, the MP came to our aid when we approached her”.

The District Director of Education, Mrs. Victoria Bampo in commending the MP also noted that most of the schools were in deplorable states when they approach her to help rehabilitate them; instead, she built new school blocks and only renovated those that were not too damaged structurally.

She further noted that without the desk learning would not go on properly as the provision of the desk would help learning and development in the district.

She was unhappy that in the outbreak of the pandemic, school children would be sitting on the floor to study.

Parents also expressed their gratitude to the MP together with government for providing various schools with veronica buckets and hand sanitizers to ensure that the COVID-19 spread is reduced, as final year students of Junior High School would be returning to school soon.

They also advocated that head teachers should move round the various schools in the district to demonstrate to students how to wash their hands and apply the hand sanitizers.
