THE Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano South Constituency , Mr Andrews Adjei-Yeboah, has presented a digital duplicator worth Gh¢4,200 to the Techimantia Presbyterian Senior High/Commercial School (PRESCO) in the Tano South District of the Brong Ahafo Region.
The duplicator which has the capacity to print about 1,000 question papers within five minutes was bought from part of the MPs share of the common fund.
Speaking at a brief presentation ceremony at the School, Mr Adjei-Yeboah said the donation was in response to an appeal made by the school authorities for assistance to own its copier machine.
He noted that previously the school authorities had to travel long distances to borrow a duplicator to come and make copies of question papers for internal examination which sometimes compromised the security of the examination papers, hence his decision to assist the school to own one.
Mr Adjei-Yeboah said that the promotion of quality education was his top most priority for his constituents and as such had decided to devote 80 per cent of his share of the common fund to education.
He mentioned some of the beneficiary education institutions as the St. Joseph College of Education at Bechem and the Kwahu Presbyterian Basic School that were benefiting from a 10 seater water closet sanitary facility as part of its upgrading it into a tertiary institution and a three unit classroom block for the pre-school respectively.
He said he had also given out about Gh¢10,000 as scholarship packages for students from the constituency who were in schools in the area and outside while Gh¢20,000 had been spent on the Subrisu CHIPS Compound to make it operational.
Mr Adjei-Yeboah urged the students of the school to study hard to compliment the heavy investment being made by the MP and their parents to enhance teaching and learning.
