FIASEC Receives 50 Computers with Accessories To Boost Teaching And Learning Of ICT.
An alma mater of Fiaseman Senior High School (FIASEC) in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality of the Western Region, Mr. Dennis Duku, has donated 50 HP desktop computers worth over $3000 to promote the teaching and learning of ICT in the school.
Mr Duku, currently a US-based Military officer, spoke highly of his alma mater, saying the school had given him some values and qualities and he in turn is giving back to the school through his donation.
He further encouraged the school authorities to make good use of the computers in order to derive the best they can for both the teachers and the students.
Mr Duku explained that “currently technology advances every second, and the world is being driven by technology. I think ICT is best for schools, so students should take advantage and study it well.”
The Headmaster of the school, Mr. John Kofi Sagoe, said the management of the school has made several request to individuals, philanthropists, institutions and organisations for computers but they were yet to receive the requested assistance.
He said the donation was timely as it would facilitate the research work of teachers to enhance their service delivery and improve upon performance of students in ICT.
“In a similar way, the donation will give an immense boost in our quest to introduce ICT as an elective subject in the school. I am really excited because this kind of donation is what the school has been waiting for. I thank Mr Dennis Duku, a 2006 Year Group of this noble institution for the kindness,” he added.
Mr Sagoe highlighted on some challenges facing the school and made mention of encroachment by some individuals on the school compound because it’s not walled. He also said there was lack of accommodation for the 120 teachers in the school.
He made more appeals to individuals, old students of FIASEC and corporate organizations to help address the pressing needs of the school.
The former Municipal Director of Education,Mr. Alex Kwaku Duah, further urged all old students of FIASEC to emulate the example of Mr. Duku by supporting the school in any form to complement the efforts of the government.
James Kwame Yeboah, Boys Perfect, added that, with the new computers, students would have practical skills in the ICT subject to broaden their knowledge to excel in their studies.
