The Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has unveiled government plans to distribute over 1.4 million tablets to students in senior high schools (SHS) as part of the free SHS policy. The initiative aims to enhance teaching and learning experiences in public senior high schools across the country.
Speaking at the Wesley Girls' Senior High School's speech and prize-giving day, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum revealed that the tablet distribution would be completed within the next two months. He highlighted the broader strategy, stating, “We are building a learning management system, so all teachers are going to be trained, and you will do your homework and class activities online. So, if you have support, it should be getting more smart boards so that it will be a 360-degree smart, technology-driven environment.”
In a subsequent statement, the Minister shared his participation in the Wesley Girls High School's 187th-anniversary celebration and Speech and Prize Giving Day. During the event, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commended the school for its contributions to education in Ghana, encouraging students to strive for excellence. Dr. Adutwum reaffirmed the government's commitment to investing in education to provide every child with opportunities for success.
As part of the government's efforts to enhance educational infrastructure, six modern science laboratories were commissioned at Wesley Girls High School, providing students with cutting-edge resources for hands-on learning experiences.
The event, attended by current and past students, teachers, and dignitaries, celebrated the school's achievements, dedication to excellence, integrity, and service. Dr Adutwum expressed his honour to be part of the significant occasion and looked forward to witnessing continued success at Wesley Girls High School.
