Ghana Education Service (GES) has pledged to restore academic work in the flood-affected areas.
The Director-General of Ghana Education Service, Dr. Eric Nkansah pledged the restoration of academic work in the flood-affected areas in the region.
Dr. Eric Nkansah told the media “We have enough textbooks for learners to learn” during the 3-day visit to the affected communities by the VRA-induced flood in the Volta Region.
In attendance was a cross-section of Directors from the headquarters, Directors in charge of Administration, Guidance and Counselling, Planning, Procurement, Special Education, Girl Child Education, Early Childhood Education, and the Director for Partnerships and Affiliations who visited some affected schools and communities within North and South Tongu districts.
According to the DG-GES, their visit was to assess how well the Education in Emergency Plan is being implemented to ensure that all schools affected by the floods resume teaching and learning activities within the shortest possible time.
Speeding the process for the academic work restoration, GES, UNICEF, and other development partners, handed over 3,000 school uniforms, 800 packs of teaching and learning materials, 10 boxes of school-in-a-box kits, 4 tents, 36 packages of recreation kits, and 32 Early Childhood Development kits.
According to Dr. Eric Nkansah, the tents will be used as classrooms in no time.
Speaking on other plans in the pipeline, he said “Beyond what we have seen today, we have had a number of fruitful celebrations with the key stakeholders. I’ve met with the traditional authorities, political and leadership within the district, and managers of our school.
