The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of the Mawuli Evangelical Presbyterian Basic School Complex has donated sets of desk and computers worth GHC 62,290 to the school to augment its USAID Learning programme.

The programme aims at improving and sustaining reading performance in primary school learners nationwide, with a special focus on children in kindergarten one through grade three (KG1-P3).

It is expected to bolster the human and institutional capacity of Ghana’s education sector.

Mr Cornelius Sekley, Chairman of the PTA said the support was to help both the teachers and pupils reap full benefit of the programme.

He said the Association noted that most of the school’s computers were either broken down or outmoded and decided to refurbish the school’s computer laboratory with 20 new computers.

Mr John K. Teku, Ho Municipal Director, Ghana Education Service, applauded the PTA for coming to the school’s aid, saying, nurseries and kindergartens formed the bedrock of basic education and that “the right logistics will ensure effective teaching and learning”.

He called on the teachers and pupils to make good use of the equipment and appealed to them to help sustain the programme after it ends in 2020.

Mrs Mawuse Ocloo, Headmistress of the school also lauded the PTA and the management committee for prompt responses to the school’s needs and appealed to the Municipal Assembly to help the school expand its classrooms.

The basic school complex comprising of “Basic schools A, B, and C” has a student population of 1,250 with teaching staff strength of 55.
