Mr Daniel Noble Awume, the Hohoe Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), has presented 560 mono and 200 dual desks to the Hohoe Municipal Education Directorate to facilitate teaching and learning.
The desks, at a cost of GH₵ 192,000, would be distributed to 25 schools including four Senior High Schools in the Municipality.
Mr Awume said the presentation was in line with the government’s agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Four, aimed at improving quality education, hence the importance for the presentation to ensure the Goal was achieved.
He urged the beneficiary schools to take good care of the furniture adding that plans were in place to provide first-class furniture and health equipment to improve the education and health status in the Municipality.
Mrs Janet Valerie Datsa Agbotse, Hohoe Municipal Education Director, said the lack of furniture distracts children from absorbing what was taught and expressed the hope that the presentation would improve the quality of education in the area.
She commended the MCE for his timely responses to the educational issues and called on the beneficiary schools to maintain the desks.
