The Adaklu District Assembly, has presented 508 dual desks, valued at GHS127,079 to the District Directorate of Education for distribution to various schools in the area.
The desks were procured with funds from the investment grant under the District Performance Appraisal Tool.
The DCE, Mr Phanuel Donkor Kadey said that education was one of the topmost priority areas in which the assembly was poised to invest in.
Pursuant to that, he said, work was ongoing on a six-unit classroom block at Anfoe, and at Waya as well.
“For now, we are committing the total investment grant to education development, although the funds could also be used to support the areas health, sanitation and security as well,” Mr Kadey added.
He said that the dual desks would cater for 1,016 pupils and help largely to address the furniture deficit of 5,000 in the schools.
Meanwhile, the DCE gave the assurance that the assembly would provide another set of 600 dual desks to the schools in October, this year, in addition to mono-desks and kindergarten furniture.
The District Director of Education, Mr Francis Yao Agbemadi, expressed gratitude for the items, saying the provision of furniture has led to effective teaching and learning.
He announced that the desk would be distributed among 11 schools immediately.
Mr Agbemadi affirmed that the District Directorate of Education would collaborate with the heads of the beneficiary schools to ensure that the desks are well maintained.
