According to Minister for Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Government of Ghana has started constructing modern Junior High Schools (JHS) all throughout the nation.
“Our senior schools have made significant strides, but the rate of advancement in our Junior High Schools (JHS) is what I am most proud of. Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, the minister of education and the representative for Bosomtwe, stated that a large school complex project was underway in Juaben in the Ashanti Region and was planned to be finished this year.
The new facility, according to Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, aims to consolidate all pupils in a neighbourhood under a single roof in order to eliminate a limited group of public JHS schools.
This will boost the educational system’s quality in junior high schools across the nation, he said.
According to Dr. Yaw Osei Aduttwum, the new school complex would house over a thousand students from several villages in the area and include a science lab, computer lab, and robotics lab.
“We are going to move out of all the old buildings and relocate to the newly modernised school” when construction is finished.
Communities in the Ashanti Region like Juaben, Asem, Bantama, and Onwe have already benefited from the initiative. The Ridge Area is in Sunyani, and Chamba is where the Northern Region has its share.
He called it “transformational development” and pointed out that the government’s action would increase the public school’s appeal to both parents and pupils.
