Accra, July 25, GNA – Mr Theodore Nii Adjetey
Adjei, the Headmaster of Association Community Model Basic School, has appealed
to stakeholders and institutions to support them with teaching resources to
enhance learning.

He said the school had achieved a lot but the
absence of computer laboratory, personal computers, sports equipment and inadequate
classrooms have led to congestion and ineffective teaching of Information
Communication Technology (ICT) in the school.

Mr Adjei made the appeal at the school’s
