The donation aims to enhance the quality of education for students with special needs.
The state-of-the-art ICT laboratory, equipped with 18 computers, air conditioning, and a projector, is designed to develop the students' ICT skills, facilitate learning, and integrate technology into educational management.
Prior to this refurbishment, ICT teachers faced challenges using personal laptops for instruction, resulting in time-consuming and cumbersome teaching methods.
Madam Lawrencia Entsuah, the Rotarian President for Cape Coast-Central, expressed optimism about the transformative impact of the ICT center on both teacher development and student education through technology-based training.
She emphasized the importance of continuous integration of ICT in teaching to improve learning outcomes.
“A world without ICT is a world without any information,” said Madam Entsuah. “Let's work together for a world of opportunity and dignity for all, a future of inclusion, one in which we all gain by leaving no one behind. Disability is not inability.”
As part of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities celebration, the school organized a ‘career day' to expose students to various career paths and inspire them to pursue their dreams.
The students, including both deaf and blind pupils, showcased their capabilities through a thrilling drama, portraying roles such as lawyers, teachers, doctors, nurses, police officers, judges, and court clerks.
Rev Dr Ebenezer Konduah, the School Management Committee Chairman, motivated the students to aspire to various professions, highlighting that disability should not limit their pursuit of success.
“You can even teach sign language; nowadays, they are in high demand. The language is a very great skill, demanded in hospitals, courts, and other places,” Rev Dr Konduah encouraged.
Mr. Abraham Annang Yemoson, the Headmaster of the School, expressed gratitude for the ICT center and appealed for further support to address road, water, and electricity challenges facing the school, which has a population of over 450 pupils.
