Funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GET-Fund), it would provide space to enroll more pre-school kids in the community.
The contractors told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Thursday that they would do everything to deliver the project within the specified period of four months.
He said they had fixed the doors and would tackle the improvement of the floors, fixing windows, painting and the washrooms very soon.
The GNA carried a report on the abandoned project in early June after a visit to the school under STAR-Ghana?s media auditing and tracking of development projects, an initiative launched to put a spotlight on how government?s resources were helping to transform the lives of the people.
The goal is to aid transparency, promote accountability and good governance.
Mr Kwaku Oppong-Kyekyeku Kaakyire, the District Chief Executive (DCE), has already inspected the progress of work, and expressed satisfaction with the pace and quality of job done so far.
He urged the contractors to maintain the momentum, saying that, they would not accept excuses for any delay.
He hinted that assembly would go to every length to make sure that another abandoned school project at Amponsakrom was completed.
Education, he said, was a major priority of the assembly and that it would continue to put more resources into it to promote both access and quality.
Nana Adu Asare, an opinion leader in the community, praised the DCE for his extraordinary commitment towards the development of education and pledged to give every needed support to the contractors for the successful completion of the project.
