Mr Kwaku Oppong-Kyekyeku Kaakyire, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Afigya-Kwabre, has presented 1,000 dual desks valued at GH¢104,000.00 to the District Education Directorate for distribution to basic schools.
The desks, from the Education Ministry, are meant to end the situation where lack of chairs and tables had become a major source of discomfort to many school children.
Mr Oppong-Kyekyeku advised that the desks should be sent to schools where they were most needed.
They were expecting other consignments, he said, adding that all schools would be covered.
The DCE said the district assembly was doing everything to create the right environment for effective teaching and learning.
The Assembly has in three years built and refurbished many school blocks.
He urged school heads to ensure proper handling and maintenance of the furniture.
Mr Ignatius Nwinbe Ere-Der, the District Education Director, receiving the desks said they could not have come at a better time, given the dire situation in most of the schools. GNA
