2002 year group of State Experimental Basic School donate 200 mono-desks, teaching aids to alma mater

Students of the State Experimental Basic schools in the Ashanti Region can now sit comfortably in class after the 2002 alumni of the school donated over 200 mono-desks and other teaching materials to their alma mater.

The students hitherto had to share desk spaces with their colleagues, which according to them affected their concentration on class activities.

The State Experimental cluster of schools is one of the oldest public schools in the Ashanti Region, having churned out notable personalities in the country.

Established in the 1950s, the school has since not seen any major renovations and has been challenged by infrastructural deficits.

Students at the school have had to struggle with inadequate desks by sharing the few ones available with their colleagues.

The 2002 year group of the school also donated 30 tables and arm chairs for teachers, as well as pen drives and reading items.

Mercy Akuamoah Boateng presented the items on behalf of the group.

“It’s free education but some students can’t afford to buy the desks. In terms of learning, these desks will help the students in their learning. They can’t come to school and stand. Since they have these provided, they will have the zeal to come to school,” she said.

Authorities and students of the school could not hide their joy upon receiving the items.

Headmaster, Solomon Ofori Kankam, said the items came at the opportune time and would facilitate smooth learning.

“We have a lot of broken chairs, and we don’t have the money to repair them. Sometimes, the parents pay for these repairs. We were not having enough of these desks in class. In a class you can have 40 students sharing 18 mono-desks. This is going to help us a lot,” he said.
