The District Director of Education(DDE) for Akrofuom, Mr. George Sarfo Kantanka has, personally, donated 2 fixed telephone handsets to Akrofuom Senior High Technical School to be used by the students.
The gadgets were presented to the school authorities and students on Monday, May 29, 2023, at the school’s premises.
This move by the DDE, according to him, is to provide the students with the opportunity to be in touch with their families at home as they are discouraged from bringing mobile phones to school.
The DDE said; ” in discouraging the students from using mobile phones, the school should not be an entity to create a void between the students and their families, therefore, there is the need to bridge the gap with fixed lines”.
The DDE admonished the house staff to regulate the use of the phones by the students in order not to distract academic and other school programmes with them.
The students and staff of the school applauded the district director for this interventive initiative.
