Afadzato South District Assembly to distribute over 1000 desks to schools - DCE James Flolu

The District Chief Executive for Afadzato South, Hon. Etornam James Flolu has disclosed that the District Assembly will distribute not less than 1000 desks to schools in the district in August.
This he said, was a step further in fulfilling his promise that every student gets furniture to use in schools.

He also indicated that one of the school building that has almost collapsed and posing as death threat to students in Kpeve will be rehabilitated next month August.

Mr Flolu was speaking as the Guest of Honour at the Afadzato South Inter-Circuit Reading Festival on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at Ve-Agbome.
According to him, the government is trying to build a new crop of Ghanaians that can basically read and write, reason why it is putting up educational facilities and also procuring desks for students amongst others.
Both the DCE and Member of Parliament for Afadzato South Constituency, Angela Oforiwa Alorwu-Tay who was supposed to grace the reading festival as the guest speaker but couldn't attend, announced to support the festival with Gh¢2000.00 each.
The Ghana Education Service in partnership with USAID hosted the Afadzato South District Inter-Circuit Reading Festival.

The nine circuits including Ve-South, Ve-North, Weto, Liati, Leklebi, Nyagbo, Have and Logba, all had three contestants each from a circuit including a basic 1,2 ad 3 pupil.

After three rounds of the contest, Have circuit which came first, winning the ultimate prize which is a medal, trophy and other logistics accrued a 116 points.
Leklebi Circuit who were behind Have secured the second position with 106 points whilst Ve-North came third with a 105 score.

The District Director of Education, Dr. Esther Adzo Yeboah-Adzimah explained that the reading festival in which the nine circuits participated, focused on the celebration of all aspects of books, reading and all other activities associated with the books.

She said it was important that one learns to read and write at a tender age since it helps discover other hidden secrets in life.

Dr. Esther Adzo Yeboah-Adzimah urged the students to resort to using dictionaries to find meaning of words they don't understand.
Meanwhile, Assistant Superintendent of Police for the Afadzato South, ASP Alex Cosmos said it was no secret that there are marijuana farms in the district but admonished the pupils never to engage themselves in any activity related to drugs as it will only destroy their future.
He also bemoaned that majority of persons who were being arrested last year for committing various forms of crimes were children between the ages of 12 -15.
ASP Alex Cosmos thus admonished them to avoid bad friends who will put undue pressure on them to commit crime.
