Member of Parliament (MP) for the Afigya Kwabre North Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Hon.Collins Adomako Mensah through the Ministry of Education has presented information and Communication Technology (ICT) equipment to Tetrem Methodist Primary and Adukro Junior High School to promote teaching and learning in his constituency.

The equipment which included 100 tablets, 2 laptops, 2 projectors, was aimed among other things at supporting Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) education at the basic school level including the final year pupils who are currently preparing for their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The equipment donation to the beneficiary schools formed part of the MP’s continuous support towards the provision of quality education at the basic school level.

The two beneficiary ICT teachers or schools for that matter were carefully selected from among the ten (10) Junior High Schools (JHSs) and Primary across the district based on available data on computers in the various schools.

Presenting the laptops at a brief ceremony at Tetrem, MP for the area, Hon. Collins Adomako Mensah  said the donation of the equipment has become more than necessary in the current  situation the country finds itself in.

He was optimistic that the support would deepen ICT studies among the pupils, emphasizing that the idea of ICT learning is critical and crucial hence the need to push that agenda to a higher level.

Mr. Adomako Mensah congratulated the teachers in the district for their courage and sacrifices in the on-going preparation of their final year pupils and students towards the BECE and the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

District Director of Education for the area, Mrs. Ellen Gyekyewaa Eshun was grateful to the MP for the gesture, adding that the support would go a long way to promote ICT education in the schools.

She urged the teachers to be resourceful as ICT teachers so as to ensure that their pupils become the ultimate beneficiaries of the laptops.

“Don’t go and keep the machines in the house; they are for the schools and pupils. The laptops should not become white elephants; let them be beneficial to the pupils, Ms. Eshun emphasized”.

The Head teacher of Adukro D.A. JHS, Mr. Obeng Collins, described the gesture by the MP as a God-sent moment for them.

According to him, for the past  years for instance, his school has not had any single computer for ICT studies.

ICT lessons have therefore been taught on blackboards or in abstract forms.

“The laptop will serve a useful purpose. The children and candidates will have a feel of the machines”, He said.
