AN ULTRA-MODERN bungalow has been built on the campus of the Wesley Girl’s Senior High School in Kumasi, popularly called ‘Kumasi Wey-Gey-Hey’ for the headmistress of the school.

The one-storey edifice financed by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) commissioned on Tuesday consists of five bedrooms, a hall, garage, balcony, bathrooms among others.

Addressing a mammoth gathering of students and other important dignitaries, Esi Oduro-Asante, headmistress of Kumasi Wey-Gey-Hey, expressed delight over the completion of the house which was started three years ago.

She praised KMA for answering swiftly to the school’s distress call for assistance, pointing out that the completion of the edifice would beautify the place and boost academic work.

Mrs. Oduro-Asante recounted her struggles in travelling from a far place to the school on daily basis, stressing that the completion of the project would enable her to stay on campus and properly monitor the children to learn and be disciplined.

The school which was started 34-years-ago, she said, lacked essential amenities like assembly hall and dining hall and therefore implored the appropriate authorities to come to its aid.

Mrs. Oduro-Asante noted that just eight teachers were staying on campus to monitor the students numbering over a thousand, calling for assistance for the construction of teachers’ bungalows.

Though discipline and learning among students on campus was excellent, she said, the presence of more teachers was essential to help maintain an appreciable discipline level.

Very Rev. Okontomene Mensah Bonsu, Ashanti Regional Manager, Methodist Education Unit, charged churches in Ghana to contribute actively towards the promotion of education in the country.

According to him, the church’s key role is to preach the word of God and bring the lost from the dark to the light, noting that the work of the church would be lessened when a larger section of the populace was educated.

The Methodist Church in Ghana, he said, has over the years contributed in the provision of quality education and healthcare delivery, urging other churches to tow their line.
