The Executive Secretary of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, Dr. Prince Hamidu Armah has donated 3,000 sets of science work books worth Ghc 75,000, to all first-year students of the two main Senior High Schools in the Effia-Kwesimintsim Municipality; the Takoradi Senior High School and the Takoradi Technical Institute.

The books titled; Integrated science work Book 1 for Senior High Schools, have been designed to suit the new curriculum being implemented by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment for Junior and Senior high schools.

The goal of Dr Prince Armah, who has initially donated 20,000 books to the Education Directorate in the area, is to ensure every first-year secondary school student in the municipality has access to integrated science working book to enable easy teaching and learning of the subject for both teachers and the students. Dr prince Armah also believes the inability of some students to develop themselves in the science subject is a major contributor to the mass failures of the subject.

“The ministry’s policy decision is that, we want to encourage the use of work books, that’s the new policy direction we have taken, so for the curriculum that is currently being implemented, the books that are supposed to be used which we are accessing, English, math and science will all come with work books. And the government of Ghana is prepared and committed to buy these work books for every Ghanaian child who qualifies. So what it means is that, Takoradi Technical Institute and Tadisco are ahead in terms of the use of the work books,” Dr Prince Armah indicated when addressing hundreds of first year students of the two senior high schools.

Dr Prince Armah also donated furniture to the office of the Municipal Education Directorate. These included one executive swivel chair, nine swivel chairs, two metal visitors chair (3in1), executive writing desk, three writing desks and a wooden cardboard. Dr Prince Armah indicates the gesture will assist staff of the newly created office perform their duties diligently.

“By my upbringing and training, all I seek to do is to give back to society. This is a new office and she happens to be the new education director here. without our support she cannot make it. I once came to this office and saw staff sitting on plastic chairs, this does not provide a serene environment to work. So, I quickly mobilized this furniture as my small contribution to ensuring all staff here have a conducive environment and work space, to give your best to this noble and young office”, Dr Prince Armah stressed.

Municipal Education Director for Effia-Kwesimintsim, Mrs. Nelly Coleman was appreciative of the gesture. According to her the donation have come at a right time, and will help the  education office and students overcome the challenges.

“There are a lot of challenges in this office, some have been solved, some are in the process and today we have this from Dr Prince Armah. We are very grateful to him for lessening our burden, not only in this office but also in the schools as well, because he has donated a lot of reading materials to us and he is still donating and all is helping teaching and learning towards quality education,” Mrs. Sally Nelly Coleman indicated.
