At the short ceremony, she said the school children being visually impaired wasn’t their own choice but through accident or by birth, therefore, there’s the need to help them achieve their education status and to also put smiles on their faces by not neglecting them.
“These people are so special so we try as much as possible to always respond to their call just to make sure they are touched positively. The school authorities can confirm that we have done a lot for the past 3 years that we have been in power and for now, we are also considering tiling all the school roads”, she added.
The MP continued that, “when it comes to basic necessity in education and other sectors this constituency has had its fair share. We go beyond the pass mark with all due respect. At least a minimum of 2 to 3 projects is ongoing at the various SHS found in the constituency mostly funded by the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Program (IPEP) and GET FUND.”
She disclosed also that there’s a brand new nursing training facility currently under construction at the Tetteh Quarahie Memorial hospital situated in Mampong.
Speaking to the Daily Guide, the headmistress of the school Madam Mahela Narh expressed her profound gratitude to the Assembly and the MP for supporting the school and also called on other cooperate bodies to assist the school.
She said, “Most of our school structures need renovation because we suffer a lot during the raining season. Some of our blocks get flooded. Government alone cannot do all every one of us must be ready to support too. The school children come from the various corners of the country.”
She mentioned how the school has helped shaped the lives of the visually impaired who would have been on the streets begging but with the school in place, it has shaped well meaningful visually impaired citizens who are doing well for societal growth.
