The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Roman Catholic (RC) Junior High School at Dzemeni in the South Dayi District has donated 100 mono desks to the school yesterday.
The PTA Chairman of the school, Mr. Gati Jacob Kwesi in his presentation disclosed that since the establishment of the school in 1994, the school lacks some basic school infrastructure such as inadequate furniture and some temporary structures which have impeded teaching and learning activities in the school.
These developments have compelled students to improvise by bringing their own table and chair to school which makes the classrooms congested, and thus compelled the PTA to take the initiative to get the school some furniture.
According to the Chairman, the PTA has undertaken some development projects such as renovation works on the Head teacher’s Bungalow, provide electricity and provision of temporary structure to be used as classroom to complement the existing ones.
He therefore encouraged parents to continue to support the school to help convert the temporary structure into a permanent school building to avert any future disaster.
The Head teacher of the school, Mr. Evaristus Tsikplornu in receiving the donation on behalf of the school thanked the PTA for the gesture and appealed to the government for more support.
He also lamented about inadequate staff strength particularly in the Language department. According to him, requests made to the District Office of Ghana Education Service for new teachers have proof futile.
The Member of Parliament for South Dayi, Rockson Nelson Deafemekpor who graced the occasion thanked the PTA and other stakeholders for their support. He charged other PTAs in various schools in the district to follow suit. He also pledged to donate some furniture to the school to support the existing ones. Present at the occasion was the District Director of Supervision for South Dayi, Peace Osai – the School Management Committee (SMC) Chairman, Togbe Tukata Simon and some parents.
