Anomatoa Primary Gets Three Classroom Block BA/R

The Techiman Municipal Assembly in the Brong Ahafo Region has constructed a three (3) classroom block for the people of Anomatoa in the Techiman Municipality.  Anomatoa is a five (5) kilometer from Techiman, with a population of about 500 people.


The majority of the residents are settler farmers.  The three (3) classroom block was built for the Anomatoa primary school at the cost of GH¢120,000 from the Urban Development Grant (UDG) project.  The other facilities include an office, store, KVIP and a urinal. 

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Techiman, Mr. Phillip Oppong Amponsah, in his inaugural speech to commission the 3 classroom block urged parents to send their wards to school since government was up to the task of providing the facilities for effective teaching and learning in the school. He advised parents not engage their children into farming to the neglect of their education since they were the future leaders.  “The children are our future leaders and education is necessary tool to prepare them for that future responsibility”, he emphasized.  

He also advised the Ghana Education Service (GES) to take proper care of the building and ensure proper maintenance culture so that it last longer.  He urged the teachers in the school to plant trees to serve as windbreak to protect the building as well as a playing ground for the pupils in the school.

The school also benefits from School Feeding programme and the MCE took the opportunity to again appeal to parents to ensure their children attend school so that they (parents) can benefit from more government policies.  The MCE assured the chiefs and the people that he would rehabilitate the road linking the community to Techiman-Nkoranza which is under a deplorable state to facilitate transportation of people and farm produce to and from the Anomatoa.  He promised the people electricity before Christmas as their Christmas package. 

The Municipal Director of Education for Techiman, Mr. Godfred Axolu, thanked the MCE for living up to his promise for providing them the school within six months.  He said proper care would be given to the building and called on parents to take the education of their children very serious.  He said regular monitoring and effective supervision had been instituted in the Directorate to ensure that teachers deliver their best.

The Chief of the area, Nana Gyasi Acheampong, thanked government for the school.  He said the community needs a Junior High School (JHS) to absorb the increase number of pupils from primary six (6). He also appealed to the MCE to provide kitchen accommodation for school feeding programme in the community as the current building was in a deplorable state.

Alhaji Nashiru Yusifu, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman for Techiman South, appealed to parents to see the teachers as their brothers and sisters.  He urged the people to visit and support the teachers and encourage them to give up their best.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Techiman South, Mr. Adjei Mensah was there to learn his support to the MCE.
