The Amansie Central District Assembly has taken a significant step towards improving facilities at Tweapease Senior High School (SHS) with the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a boys' dormitory.
The project, funded by the Minerals Development Fund, comes as part of the Assembly's efforts to bridge infrastructural gaps in the school.
Tweapease SHS, which started as a private school in 2012, was absorbed by the government as a day school in 2018. Recently, it gained boarding status, admitting about 122 students into makeshift dormitories.
The construction of the new boys' dormitory will provide proper accommodation for male students, enhancing their learning environment.
Mr. Michael Donkor, the District Chief Executive (DCE), expressed the Assembly's commitment to addressing infrastructural deficits in the school.
He emphasized that the government had been supporting the school since its establishment, with additional resources like a new bus and pick-up vehicle already provided.
The contractor executing the project, Mr. Archibald Oppong, assured that the construction would be completed within six months, adhering to the contract's timeline and ensuring top-notch quality.
Nana Pokuaa Amoako, the District Director of Education, praised the Assembly's initiative, acknowledging that the dormitory would help alleviate the infrastructural challenges faced by the school.
Mr. Theophilus Yeboah, the Headmaster of the School, expressed his appreciation for the project, stating that it would be a welcome relief for both staff and students.
He explained that the need for accommodation compelled them to improvise by converting classrooms into dormitories, making the new dormitory a crucial addition to the school.
The school also highlighted the importance of having appointed security personnel and proper fencing to ensure safety and security on the premises.
