Good news for students in the the Asessewa Senior High School (SHS) in the Upper Manya Krobo District in the Eastern Region as work is assiduously on a 500-capacity 3-storey girls dormitory block for the school to see for its completion.
The GHs 26,000.00 worth GETFUND project started about eleven (11) months ago and has already been roofed, plasted and currently being fixed with doors in windows.
The project, which also has the senior headmistress residence attached, is a major infrastructure boost to the school especially the students.
Headmaster of the school Mr. Samuel Gyabi Yeboah explaining issues to the Eastern Regional Minister, Mr. Victor Smith during his tour to region dislcoed that a 2 storey boys dormitory commissioned by the President J.E.A Mills last year is currentgly being used as the girls dormitory block while a classroom block and a rented premise has been secured for the boys for the mean time.
He said the school is in so much anticipation for early completion of the project so that all the students can be conveniently housed to ensure proper security and monitoring.
The headmaster’s major concern however has to do with teachers’ accommodation, which he indicated was prohibiting academic work.
He noted that majority of teachers had to stay far away in town and that their proximity to the school would have been an advantage to the students in that they would be willing to do extra for the students.
According to him, the president’s promise to have the situation resolved is yet to be fulfilled and appealed to the Minister to assist the school to get more teachers’ accommodation.
Mr. Smith on his part highly commended the contractor working on the project, Stenkod Construction Limited, for the speedy and quality of work they have delivered so far promising that though their payment is behind schedule government will put up its best to address the issue.
He urged all contractors to emulate Stenkod Construction Limited.
