In an effort to enhance teaching and learning of ICT, a businessman in Tamale has made a donation of ten brand new computers and accessories to his Alma mater, Al - Markaziya Islamic Junior High School. The computers, worth over 20,000 Cedis will come in handy for students as they will help revive the school's ill - equipped computer labouratory and make ICT learning more practical.
At a ceremony to hand over the items, Mr Abdul Karim, said that apart from being an old boy of the school, his aim for the donation was to deepen the acquisition of knowledge in the realm of technology for Muslim children. He revealed his plans to extend the gesture to other schools in Tamale and also called on other benevolent individuals and groups to join his crusade to make ICT learning easier for the Muslim community.
The ceremony to handover the items was graced by the Northern Regional Chief Iman, Sheikh Ahmed Abdul Salam, Head of Islamic Education Unit, Leadership of the School's PTA, Assemblyman for Zogbeli Electoral Area as well as teachers and students. Headmistress, Hajia Abdulai Barikisu, spoke on behalf of the students and expressed gratitude to the businessman for his intervention and promised the computers will be well catered for to ensure they last longer for generations to benefit. She however used the occasion to appeal for furniture, saying the lack of chairs for students is hampering teaching and learning in the school.
