THE HON. DCE COMMISSIONS AMLAKPO 3-UNIT JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOM BLOCK, OFFICE AND STORE HELD ON THURSDAY, 25th JUNE 2020 AT AMLAKPO.
The District Chief Executive of Ada East District Assembly, Hon. Sarah Dugbakie Pobee, has commissioned the Amlakpo Junior High School (JHS) 3-Unit classroom block with office, IT room and store project. The project was funded by Ada East District Assembly – District Assembly Common Fund.
The project was necessitated by the plight of pupils trekking a long distance to Kasseh before accessing Junior High School education and also some pupils ended up joining wee gangs and exhibiting deviant behaviors at school. The lack of close parental monitoring as pupils trek to school has accrued to the poor performance of candidates in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). The new school infrastructure would serve Amlakpo community and its surrounding environs.
