The Member of Parliament for Hohoe, John Peter Amewu, has commissioned a new school building for girls named Santa Esther Girls’ Senior High School in Wli, a community in the Hohoe Municipality. The school building was constructed with the aim of providing quality education for the girls of Wli and its surrounding areas.
The Santa Esther Girls’ Senior High School is a modern and well-equipped facility that will serve adjoining communities of Wli and help reduce congestion in pre-existing schools in the Hohoe area. The school project was funded by the Hohoe MP, John Peter Amewu, and was born out of a desire of the people of Wli to have a senior high school in the community, especially for the female children in the community.
During the commissioning ceremony, which was held on Friday, May 5, 2023, a large number of dignitaries, including the Municipal Chief Executive, representatives from the Ministry of Education, traditional leaders, and members of the community were in attendance.
Mr Amewu, speaking at the ceremony, emphasized that education was the key to unlocking the potential of the youth and promoting development in the area. He noted that the construction of the new school building was part of his commitment to improving education in the Hohoe Municipality.
The MP further explained that the new school building would provide a conducive learning environment for the students, which would enable them to achieve their full potential. He added that the facility was equipped with modern teaching aids, including computers, projectors, and interactive whiteboards, which would enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
The commissioning of the Santa Esther Girls’ Senior High School is a significant milestone in the development of the Hohoe Municipality. The new school building will provide a better learning environment for the girls and empower them with quality education. For the most part, it will help reduce congestion in other pre-existing schools in the area and ease the burden on parents and guardians who have to transport their children to schools outside the community.
The Volta Regional Director of Education, Mr Francis Yao Agbemadi, was excited about the new school established in the community to help empower the girl child. However, he urged the MP to fast track the fencing of the school to help safeguard the girls from any kind of harm.
In a nutshell, the Santa Esther Girls’ Senior High School is an excellent addition to the education sector in the Hohoe Municipality. It is a clear indication of the MP’s commitment to providing quality education for the youth, especially girls, in the area. We commend the efforts of the MP and urge the community to take advantage of this facility to improve the education of their children.
