Six students to one computer – Woes of Kwegyir Aggrey SHS

5845590379709_116671895556Authorities of Kwegyir Aggrey Senior High School at Anomabu in the Central Region say it is becoming increasingly difficult for students to learn ICT with just a few computers in the School.

According to the Assistant Headmistress of the School, teaching and learning of ICT when six students are crammed around one computer makes teaching and learning burdensome.

Susana Manu revealed this when over 20 HP laptops and assorted books were donated to the School by SNG Canada, a benevolent organization.

“It is not easy for us. Imagine six students crowded around one computer during ICT lessons. How will the learning of ICT be convenient and easy for the students to understand? We are indeed very happy for such a gesture. This will augment the small number of computers we have to help the students. We are only asking for more,” she said.

The Assistant Headmistress averred that most of the computers that the school uses are spoilt hence the situation they find themselves in.

“The ones that we have are almost spoilt. This is really going to help. This will reduce the ratio of studentsto a computer during ICT classes,” she explained.

Chief Executive Officer of SNG Canada, Gideon Ankrah says the gesture was in collaboration with the Ankrah Foundation in Ghana. According to him, the sole aim of organization is to bring smiles on the faces of students across Africa by supporting them with educational materials.

“I am more convinced we brought these laptops here. The challenge here was enormous and I believe this gesture will go a long way to enhance teaching and learning in the School. This is not the first time of donating such items. Our first time was in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region where a similar donation was done.”

Gideon Ankrah thanked his collaborator Michael and one Mr. Boakye who he says helped to ship the items free of charge to Ghana.

The joy of the School knew no bounds as students of the school thanked the benefactors profusely.
