Schools in the Ashanti Region have taken delivery of large quantities of teaching and learning materials to ensure smooth and effective academic work.
The materials included 29,925 teachers’ notebooks, 53,400 attendance registers, 343,000 boxes of chalk and 2,100 mono desks.
They were supplied by the Ghana Education Service (GES) and on hand to present them at a ceremony in Kumasi, was the Director-General, Mr. Jacob Kor.
He asked the school heads to make sure that the materials were put to judicious use to enhance performance.
He used the occasion to remind teachers to show strong commitment and passion for the job they were doing to assure the nation and the students they were teaching of a better future.
Mr. Kor urged them to avoid absenteeism, lateness and anything unethical that could negatively affect classroom performance.
The GES Director-General also encouraged all to use the appropriate channels to address any challenges facing the schools.
