Mr Stephen Ahenakwa the teacher who donated the items further explained that he did that because most parents were finding it difficult to provide these basic things for their wards.

“It makes the children unhappy anytime they come to school. I was like them before so I thought it wise to be their second parent anytime they are with me he explained,” he added.

Mr Stephen Ahenakwa presented the items at a Parent and Teachers Association (PTA) meeting held at the school.

Headteacher of the school Mr Kassim Mumuni received the items and thanked Mr Stephen Ahenakwa for the gesture.

He said the teacher has lifted the burden off the shoulders of some parents as he uses his salary to buy uniforms, sandals and shocks for the pupils.

Mr Kassim Mumuni ceased the opportunity to highlight some of the challenges facing the school.

Among the challenges are the school feeding programme, furniture, fencing of the school, learning and teaching materials, a dilapidated Mosque in the school, a dilapidated KG block and many more.

He therefore called on government, NGOs, philanthropists both home and abroad to come to their aid to address the challenges with immediate effect.

Bono Regional Manager of the Islamic Education Unit, Mr Abdul Mumin Sampane who was at the meeting also commended Mr Ahenakwa for the gesture.

He congratulated 2022 BECE candidates who will be writing their Basic Education Certificate Examination from Monday 17th to Friday 21st October, 2022.

He urged both parents and guardians to give the candidates ample time to study to help them pass the exams.
