Akropong School for the Blind needs teaching aid

Madam Mahela Narh, the headmistress, Akropong School for the Blind, has appealed for a teaching aid that would help students to identify drawings as part of their studies.


She said a new technology called Zychem, which raised diagrams for visually impaired students for easy identification was not yet available in the country, and appealed for assistance to acquire them.


The headmistress, who made the appeal when the First Lady, Mrs Lordina Mahama, visited the School, said zychem was a vital system in enhancing teaching and learning in schools for the visually impaired.
Mrs Mahama, who is a patron of the School, donated bags of rice, cartons of oil, tomatoes, soft drinks and toiletries for the benefit of the students.

She said that the visit formed part of her responsibility as the patron of the School to know at first hand their conditions, and assured them of her continuous support in making life more comfortable for the students.

The First lady, who was accompanied by the Eastern Regional Minister, Ms Mavis Frimpong and the Akuapem North Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr George Opare, later danced to a Happy Birthday song by the school choir to wish her a happy belated birthday.

Mrs Mahama’s birthday was on March 6.
