Mrs Matilda Amissah Arthur, the Second Lady, has entreated parents and communities to use communal efforts to provide some material and infrastructural needs of schools in their communities to help improve educational in the country.
She explained that, there are many schools that need government support but the situation is such that, government cannot provide the needs of all the schools at the same time.
“The government alone cannot do it; we need to do our bit to support by providing some of the educational needs for our children,” she said.
Mrs Amissah-Arthur was addressing community members of Akyem Ntronang in the Birim North District when she interacted with pupils of Presbyterian Basic Schools in the area.
She praised the educational performance of the District both at the national and regional levels and urged the teachers to continue working hard to maintain the standards.
The Second Lady donated 10 laptop computers and reading materials to the Ntronang Presbyterian School to help improve teaching and learning of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
Nana Asiedu Akora II, Chief of Akyem Ntronang, expressed gratitude to Mrs Amissah Arthur on behalf of the school and commended her for the passion she had for education.
He urged the school authority and teachers to endeavour to use the laptops for the purpose for which they were given.
The second lady also visited the Abirem Government Hospital where she donated soft drinks, fruits and detergents, among others, to the children admitted at the hospital. GNA
