The Holy Ghost Temple of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) at Adentan commissioned a refurbished computer lab for Fafraha Community Day Senior High School at Frafraha. The refurbishment was valued at GHS274,544.55, and is expected to serve 1,059 students. Holy Ghost Temple furnished the lab with 65 desktop computers, a printer-photocopier, a projector, two projector screens, and 33 desk stations. The Church had earlier donated five slightly-used computers to the School for administrative purposes.
Rev. Christopher Yaw Annor, Senior Pastor of ICGC Holy Ghost Temple, hoped that the lab would enhance teaching and learning and improve student performance in information and communication technology (ICT). Rev. Annor encouraged the students to make the most of the facility to improve their ICT skills in order to positively impact their future careers.
Rev. Annor appealed to the teachers, management and students to ensure proper maintenance of the facility so it is able to serve several student cohorts. He said that would motivate more generous donors to support the school. Board Chairman of Fafraha Community Day Senior High School Mr. Kwasi Nkansah, Commissioner of Police (Rtd), also admonished the school authorities to manage the facility with care to enable it to serve successive batches of students.
Mrs. Augustina Adjoa Owusu, Headmistress of Fafraha Community Day Senior High School expressed gratitude to ICGC Holy Ghost Temple for the kindness in refurbishing the lab to make it conducive for effective teaching and learning. Mrs. Owusu said the lab will enhance scientific and technological research and help build the capacity of students.
“Technology usage has gone a long way in all spheres of life at the work and educational environment,” she said, and that the lab would enable students to use their time judiciously to practice mathematics, improve their letter writing skills, and learn how to research to build their career goals and entrepreneurship.Mrs. Augustina Adjoa Owusu | Headmistress, Fafraha Community Day Senior High School
Adentan Municipal Chief Executive Mr. Daniel Alexander Nii-Noi Adumuah said education could only be complete when the relevant facilities were available for teaching and learning, especially at the pre-tertiary level. Mr. Adumuah said government alone could not bear the burden of providing such facilities and needed the support of philanthropic organizations like the Church to complement its efforts. He expressed the gratitude of the Adentan Municipal Assembly and prayed that God would replenish all the resources the church had invested in the project.
