The Member of Parliament for New Edubiase Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Ernest Kofi Yakah has happy the four dormitory projects he lobbied for the New Edubiase SHS are progressing steadily.

Mr. Yankah said he lobbied for the projects from GETFund to help address infrastructure challenges the school was faced with especially with regards to getting comfortable sleeping place for the students.

Started in 2011 under the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) three of the dormitory blocks have been completed and are already in use though yet to be commissioned, while the final one is at advanced stage of completion with paintings being done.

He said education is the key to sustainable economic growth, as such the sector requires huge investments to be able to meet the needs of the sector. It thus not surprising government blue print on the education sector to improve infrastructure at the second cycle schools especially the 200 new SHS being built as well as the expansion and upgrading of existing schools. These measures he noted are all geared towards increasing access and ensuring quality delivery for the best of the students and the country’s human resource development.

The MP said he will also continue to make the necessary interventions to ensure the school gets the best infrastructure and facilities that will aid teaching and learning.
