Newmont Ahafo Development Foundation (NADeF) is to construct a three-storey dormitory block for the Gyamfi Kumanini Senior High and Technical School at Wamahinso, a mining community in the Asutifi North District of Brong-Ahafo Region.
Mr Dominic Abugri, Assistant Headmaster of the school, who announced this at inter-house quiz competition, organised by the Foundation for students to mark the fifth anniversary celebration of NADeF at Wamahinso, said the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
He expressed worry that despite appeals made to the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND) to assist the school to build a dormitory and to acquire a bus had not yielded any positive response.
Nana Agyei Twum, Chief of Wamahinso, commended the Foundation for providing the town with toilet, classroom blocks, potable water, and for extending electricity to new settlements.
House One of the school came first with 65 points, House Three second with 58 points, House Two, third with 56 marks and House Four, fourth with 50 points.
Each of the three students, who participated in the competition, received exercise books, pens, tins of milk and milo and some money.
Nana Baffour Okyere Darko Amoako, Krontihene of Gyedu, appealed to NADeF to train more youth to acquire employable skills. GNA
