The Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA) donated 5,000 branded Mathematics revision textbooks to the Ministry of Education for distribution to senior high schools.

The outreach was part of the authority’s social responsibility in support of the implementation of the free senior high school policy .

Director-General of GMA Mr. Kwame Owusu stressed the importance of math and pledged the authority’s preparedness to print additional 2,000 copies to ensure that many SHS schools and students obtained copies.

Minister of Education Dr. Matthew O. Prempeh received the books on behalf of beneficiaries and commended the GMA for the kind gesture.

Dr. Prempeh said the ministry was concerned about low scores and failures in senior high math at the West African School Certificate Examination, which made a math revision textbook that was ‘student-friendly’ most welcome.
