Western Region Minister pushes for e-learning in secondary schools
Western Region Minister, Dr Kwaku Afriyie, has
called on school authorities to include e-learning
in the academic curriculum to ensure that students
become conversant with the technology.
He said the changing pace of academic work
required that ICT and library services in schools
were integrated with academic work to help
students derive the best from technology.
Dr Afriyie said this when he visited some selected
schools within the Metropolis to observe the
students who were currently writing the WASSCE.
The Regional Minister was accompanied by Mr
Anthony K. K. Sam, Metropolitan Chief Executive,
Mrs Afi Amafugah, Regional Education Director and
Mrs Elizabeth Akuoko, the Metropolitan Director of
At the Badu Bonsu Senior High School, Mr Joseph
Ben Asmah, Headmaster of the school, expressed
concern about the way the community was using the
school as a thoroughfare which posed a security
threat to lives and property in the school.
He said institutions such as "schools, police
stations and courts must be seen as monuments and
not left unprotected".
The Regional Minister also visited the Bompeh
Technical Senior High School in Takoradi where the
school authorities complained about the lack of a
technical laboratory to enhance practical work.
At the time of the visit more than 500 candidates
were busy writing the social studies paper.
