As a means of improving the level of education within the municipality, the municipal chief executive of the Prestea Huni- valley Municipal assembly Hon. Mozart Kwaku Owuh has distributed 900 desks (600 dual and 300 mono) to schools within the municipality. The presentation was in collaboration with the Member of Parliament Hon. Mrs. Barbara Oteng-Gyasi and the Municipal Assembly. The desks were funded from the District Development Fund. He said it is the aim of the assembly to present more than 4000 duel and mono desks to schools by the end of 2019 so as to do away with deficiencies of furniture in schools within the municipality.
Hon. Mozart said they believe in the adage of “catching them young and they shall be yours forever “hence the MCE and the MP are concentrating on the early childhood development of children within the municipality. He said very soon there will be a sod-cutting ceremony for the commencement of early childhood schools at Damang M/A and Dwabeng. He added that the MP is also building a KG block at Konduakrom. A three units classroom block at Awoduya and one ultra-modern KG blocks (made up of classrooms, storeroom, kitchen, dining hall staff common room and WC) at Yareyeya will also be inaugurated very soon, he added. He was however not happy with the performance on the district league table even though the current rank of 116 was an improvement on the previous rank of 205. He wished that in the next ranking the municipality will be within the first 100 districts.
Showing her gratitude, the Municipal Education Director Madam Mary Vida Kwofie thanked the MCE, the MP and the entire assembly for the presentation and like Oliver twist requested for more desks for schools that need it.
