The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Amansie Central District Hon. Kwame Asamoah Boateng has renovated the Afoako RC primary school which was considered as a death trap in the area to a well standard one in his district.
The school was abandoned when the school authorities realized it has become a death trap to the students and the teachers.
The Assistant Headmaster of the school, Mr. Frimpong Sarkodie Godfred in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo monitored by Ghtimesonline.com vehemently echoed that the increase in knowledge-based society which has necessitated the increase in infrastructure in schools is what his school has been denied over the years.
According to Mr. Frimpong Sarkodie Godfred due to the intervention of Amansie Central DCE Hon. Kwame Asamoah Boateng, a new classroom block was built immediately after he became the DCE to facilitate teaching and learning in the community.
He said, “due to the deplorable state of the block, the entire students, teaching and non-teaching staffs relocated to the new building which eventually couldn’t contain the population of the school thereby, the need to allow some students go back to the ” death trap” building”.
Old structure of Afoako R/C primary school.
“We couldn’t overlook the deplorable state of the old building and allow students to sit in and learn. We persistently appealed to the Honorable DCE, Kwame Asamoah Boateng to come to our aid in renovating the ” death trap ” building of which he paid heed to the calling. Now after the renovation of the school, the school population has been increased because parents are comfortable allowing their children to come to school”
The Assistant Headmaster Mr. Frimpong Sarkodie having observed the swift changes in the school applauded the effort of the Hon. DCE towards Education in the district.
He, therefore, appealed to President Akuffo Addo to maintain Hon. Kwame Asamoah Boateng as DCE for Amansie central due to his enormous contributions towards Education and the welfare of his people in the district.
