The beneficiary schools are; Takyiman Presbyterian JHS, Tanoso Anglican JHS A and B, Denkyemuoso JHS, Ohwimase JHS and Boko JHS.
Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong, speaking at a sod-cutting ceremony for the commencement of the project said it would be completed on September 2022.
He said the project would be a centre of excellence in the development and conduct of workshops and in-service training for teachers on strategies for integrating critical thinking skills in classroom practice and delivery.
