Two old student groups, 1981 and 1982 of the Naval Base School have donated 25 computers and a printer to improve the study of Information Communication Technology.
The move was to promote effective teaching and learning of ICT for the academic and intellectual development of the students.
Making the presentation, the leader of the Associations, Mr Gorge Foster Baffoe, said the group decided to support the school when it noticed that it lacked ICT equipment needed to improve academic work.
“When we came here two weeks ago and saw the ICT lab in that dilapidated state, we were not happy about it, so we had discussions behind the scenes, mobilised,” he said.
He said “the school had invested in us and it was time to give back to it” saying “the Associations was taking steps to mobilize more resources to support the school”.
Mr Baffoe said the ICT club would be established in the school and provided with all the amenities to improve the academic prowess of the school and called on the students to take their academics seriously.
He said their year group was the pioneers of the school, as such, they had decided to take the leading role in donating to encourage other groups to come out and support the school.
Receiving the items on behalf of the school, Mr Yussif Bobabe, the headmaster of the school thanked the group for coming to support them with their resources.
Mr Bobabe said more of such gestures were needed to improve upon the academic performance of the students and appealed to the alumni to continue to offer to assist the school to help address challenges and called on the other groups to come on board.
