The Anfoeta Tsebi District Assembly School in the Ho West District of the Volta Region has held its second Speech and Prize Giving Day with a call on the government, benevolent bodies, and other educational stakeholders to assist the school with teaching and learning resources.
The Anfoeta Tsebi DA Primary School was established in 1924, while the Junior High School was established in 1987. Since its establishment, the school has been discharging its core duty of serving the educational needs of Anfoeta and its catchment areas in the Ho West District of the Volta Region.
The current student population of the school stands at 399. Out of this, 220 constitute boys with girls making up 179.
The Headmistress of the Anfoeta Tsebi DA Primary School, Mrs. Juliana Ameh, said inadequate infrastructure, especially in the areas of library and ICT, as well as teaching personnel, is seriously affecting teaching and learning.
According to her, the school continues to chalk up success stories despite the challenges confronting it and has appealed for assistance.
“The JHS has no computer lab. This is making the teaching of ICT difficult. The school needs a well resourced library to enhance reading…..but for the kind intervention of the JHS staff and the community, who have been assisting to manage the large student population at the primary school, the situation would have been much more difficult to explain.”
“The school should be provided with a well resourced library and enough teaching and learning resources,” she added.
The Paramount Chief of the Anfoeta Traditional Area, Togbe Kwasi Drah VII, called on government to, as a matter of urgency, improve and complete all educational infrastructure to enhance and improve educational fortunes in the area.
The Ho Municipal Works Engineer, Mr. Edward Anyam, who was the Guest Speaker called on parents to complement the efforts of government as the provision of quality education is a shared and collective responsibility of all.
“Creating an enabling environment for the kids requires a responsibility of us all. Do we provide the needs of our children? Do we care to find out what they learn? What about what they eat? How are we helping to provide the infrastructure or the facilities for our wards as parents? What kind of environment do you create at home for our kids learn and thrive?” he questioned.
Deserving pupils and students were recognised for their academic excellence, while some teaching staff were also recognised.
