The headmistress of Sekondi College in the Western Region, Mrs. Guddy Abena Ampomah Kermah, has said that GNPC Foundation’s school infrastructure project in second cycle institutions would boost the capacity of schools to cater to Freshmen who are expected to begin their academic journeys on the single-track system.
The President, His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo, during his 21st Covid-19 update to Ghanaians on Sunday, January 3, 2021, announced that students at all levels will resume school, with all form one students enrolling on single-track.
Speaking at a short ceremony marking the technical handing over of a new 6-unit classroom block constructed by the GNPC Foundation for Sekondi College, the Headmistress, said the return to the single-track academic calendar has only become possible through the efforts of Government and organizations such as the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation who, through their CSR vision and mission, have invested in augmenting the infrastructural needs of needy schools across the country.
“There is very little argument to make in understanding the value and importance of GPNC Foundation’s initiative to support schools with classroom blocks and furniture at a time when enrollment figures have soared for good reasons, making it imperative to shore up the infrastructural deficits of schools who need such to cater to their students,” she said.
Mrs. Ampomah Kermah reiterated that Sekondi College, though exploring various avenues to increase classroom infrastructure, is better placed today than before to handle the new numbers coming in as Freshmen and on the single-track system.
“As a beneficiary of GNPC’s school infrastructure program, our new 6-unit classroom block would ease congestion and make teaching and learning more comfortable for both teachers and students,” she added.
The GNPC Foundation, under its Education & Training module, is committed to supporting the academic experiences of students across the country with the implementation of the schools' infrastructure program aimed at assisting the Ghana Education Service and the Ministry of Education in the provision of classrooms and furniture to deprived schools.
