East Ayawaso gets a SHS complex Accra, Jan. 25, GNA – Dr Mustapha Ahmed, Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, on Wednesday cut the sod for work to begin on a three-storey 12 classroom block and offices for the proposed Senior High and Technical School for East Ayawaso in the Greater Accra Region.

The first phase of the project sited on a piece of land behind Kanda Presbyterian Primary and Junior High School, is estimated at GHC230,000.

It is expected to be completed within six months for admissions by September 2012.

He commended executives of East Ayawaso Constituency of the NDC, Assembly members and other committee members for their hardwork and dedication towards the  realisation of the project. 

Dr Ahmed said the project was being executed in consultation with the chiefs, elders and other opinion leaders of the community to bring about progress in the lives of the people.

He explained that the project was being financed by the GETFund, portion of the MP’s Share of the Common Fund, but would appreciate donations from the public especially, the beneficiary community to ensure the timely completion of the project.

Dr Ahmed stated that as the Member of Parliament for East Ayawaso, he thought it best to initiate the project to help address the challenges posed by the Senior High School Placement system.

“Difficulties of the placement system often frustrate parents and their wards in attaining Senior High School education in the community,” he said.

Dr Ahmed pointed out that as a community project, it would be owned by the community and urged all the committees set up to ensure the successful completion of the project on schedule.

He expressed the hope that the project would be expanded in future to accommodate more students.
