Tema, July 18, GNA – Mr Felix Mensah Nii
Anang-La, Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive, has appealed to industries
operating in the Tema Metropolis to adopt one public school each in the area.

Mr Anang-La said industries must see it as a
corporate social responsibility to adopt a school to help upgrade the
educational system in the Metropolis.

He noted that “the adopt a school” initiative
was part of measures put in place by the Assembly under the Tema Restoration
Agenda which seeks to restore Tema to its former status.

According to him, industries would  be expected to help improve infrastructure
and recreational facilities in the schools they adopt.

He added that TMA would also liaise with
industries to provide practical skill training for students in the Metropolis
through internship programmes to prepare them for the job market.

He indicated that to build a cohesive and
prosperous metropolis, education would be at the heart of his administration as
TMA would tirelessly provide the necessary infrastructure and logistics to end
the shift system and enhance teaching and learning in the various schools.

He announced that the Metropolitan Authority
had recommended the supply of water, logistics and furniture to newly built
schools as well as the fencing of such schools including the Manhean Anglican
School, Adjetey Ansah School, and the Mexico School.

The MCE added that revaluation and re-awarding
of abandoned school projects must be done to ensure that school pupils got
access to classrooms instead of studying under trees.

The Authority also recommended for the
construction of the drainage system for Community Five number one school and
other affected schools to reduce flooding whenever it rained.

Mr Anang-La added that the entire school
blocks of Aggrey Road number one and two primaries must be reroofed to provide
proper ventilation and visibility. The schools sewage and washrooms are also to
be reconstructed.
