A six-unit classroom block has been inaugurated for the Tamale Senior High School (SHS) at a ceremony in Tamale today (February 27).
The classroom block which is aimed at solving the double-track system in the school was funded by GNPC Foundation.
The Headmaster of the Tamale Senior High School, Reverend Edward Azerka said the classroom block is timely and that the school had to convert some of its facilities such as the laboratory into a classroom block because of the lack of space.
He commended the GNPC Foundation for the gesture and promised that the building will be put into good use.
Reverend Azerka used the occasion to appeal to other organizations to come to the aid of the school.
The Executive Director of GNPC Foundation Dr. Dominic Eduah said the foundation has taken a bold step to ensure that it plays a role in education for the development of the country.
He said every Ghanaian child should get access to education, irrespective of one’s ethnic, religious and political affiliation.
Dr. Eduah advised the school authority to maintain the block so that generations can benefit from it.
The Northern Regional Director of the Regional Co-ordinating Council, Issahaku Alhassan said the Council will soon inaugurate many projects including school blocks to enhance teaching and learning.
He proposed a maintenance plan for the school so that they can save the classroom block from deteriorating early.
The Sagnarigu District Director of Education Samata Mahama emphasized that the building will help reduce pressure on the existing facilities and appealed for more support from the foundation so that many schools can benefit it.
