Facebook group refurbishes Apagya primary school, November 12, 2014 (Back page)


A GROUP of friends on Facebook, identified only as DGG, has put smiles on the faces of the people of Apagya in the Adansi South District in the Ashanti Region by handing over the refurbished Apagya R/C Primary School to the community.

A storm that hit the community in March this year ripped off the roof of three classrooms and left the remaining roofs leaking. 
Apart from the incident leading to more than 500 pupils being crammed into three classrooms, the headteacher was also left without an office.

It took the group some months to raise close to GHc23,000 from members in countries including Ghana, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mali, Germany, the United States and Nigeria to renovate the school, with support from indigenes of the area and the Adansi South District Assembly.

Apart from the re-roofing and work on the foundation, the doors and windows  of the school were also changed. 

While the community provided timber to support the project, the assembly provided 30 bags of cement and some members of the group volunteered to paint the building. 


The group also presented assorted stationery, some of which were donated by students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, to both the Apagya R/C Primary and Junior High schools.

Speaking at a ceremony to hand over the school last Saturday, the leader of the group, Nana Awere Damoah, said although it had completed its projects for the year at the time its  attention was drawn to the state of the school, the members were touched by the plight of the pupils, hence the decision to help. 

“We all come from one rural community or another across Ghana and don’t know what the future holds for these children.  It is education that got us to where we are now. We see this as giving back to society,” he said.

He urged the pupils to study hard and make good use of the opportunities available to them.

The Circuit Education Supervisor of the area, Mr Charles Clifford Baah, thanked to the group for supporting the school. 

The Headteacher of the school, Mr Peter Owusu, who was full of praise for the group, pledged to ensure that the school produced a student with nine grade ones in the BECE within the next three years.

He also promised to ensure that the renovated building was put to good use. 

Some of the pupils who spoke to the Daily Graphic expressed joy at the new look of their school.

This is not the first time the group has assisted in education in Ghana.
In November last year, it donated assorted story books and textbooks to the Anfoega and the Vakpo Senior High schools. 

It also made a similar donation to the inmates of the Nsawam Medium Security Prison in July this year.

Speaking at a ceremony to hand over the school last Saturday, the leader of the group, Nana Awere Damoah, said although it had completed its projects for the year at the time its  attention was drawn to the state of the school, the members were touched by the plight of the pupils, hence the decision to help. 
“We all come from one rural community or another across Ghana and don’t know what the future holds for these children.  It is education that got us to where we are now. We see this as giving back to society,” he said.
He urged the pupils to study hard and make good use of the opportunities available to them.
Community asks for more  
The Circuit Education Supervisor of the area, Mr Charles Clifford Baah, thanked to the group for supporting the school. 
The Headteacher of the school, Mr Peter Owusu, who was full of praise for the group, pledged to ensure that the school produced a student with nine grade ones in the BECE within the next three years.
He also promised to ensure that the renovated building was put to good use. 
Some of the pupils who spoke to the Daily Graphic expressed joy at the new look of their school.
Other initiatives by DGG
This is not the first time the group has assisted in education in Ghana.
In November last year, it donated assorted story books and textbooks to the Anfoega and the Vakpo Senior High schools. 
It also made a similar donation to the inmates of the Nsawam Medium Security Prison in July this year.
