GHANA GOVERNMENT CUTS SOD FOR A CREATIVE ARTS SCHOOL IN KWADASO

The government of Ghana has cut the sod for the construction of a Creative Arts Senior High School in Kwadaso, in the Ashanti region. During the ceremony on Sunday 1st December 2019, President Akufo-Addo said that “we reaffirm our commitment to the growth of the creative arts industry by cutting the sod for the construction of the very first Senior High School in Ghana dedicated solely to the industry.”

He added that “there could be no more fitting place for the siting of the first of many of such edifices than the ancient, vibrant city of Kumasi, famed for its rich pedigree of culture, music, dance, folklore and drama.”

He also reaffirmed his government’s commitment to building many more of such schools across Ghana, so that young Ghanaians can gain access to quality and specialized education in order to improve and hone their skills in the creative arts.

“I have every confidence that this school will serve as an important beacon for many young and talented people, seeking a fulfilling career in the creative arts,” he said.

He urged leaders in the industry to make themselves available to provide guidance and inspiration to the new school, “as it takes its initial steps in order to ensure that a legacy of excellence is passed on to the younger generation within a clear and solid framework”.

He also cut the sod for the construction of a state-of-the-art Senior High and Technical School to be named after the 2nd President of the 4th Republic, His Excellency John Agyekum Kufuor. The school is expected to be completed in ten (10) months; the President commended the Ministry of Education for this admirable gesture of constructing and naming the school after the former President in his hometown of Dabaa.

In his opening address, he stated that “Every child must be offered the opportunity to bring out her inherent talents for innovation. It is in the laboratories and workshops that young people get the opportunity to expand their imagination, and develop the skills that would equip them for the modern world. We need to modernize all aspects of our lives, and we need skilled people to lead the modernization process,” President Akufo-Addo added.

The President told the gathering that Government, through the Education Ministry and in collaboration with AMATROL, is equipping the country’s Technical Institutes, Technical Universities and Colleges of Education that specialize in TVET.

“Additionally, 20 state-of-the-art TVET centres, like the one to be constructed here at Dabaa, are being established across the country to make Ghana a world-class centre for skills development, and a leading country in TVET delivery in Africa. We want to emphasize the importance of TVET, and eliminate the misconception that technical and vocational education is inferior and patronized only by less endowed students,” he added.
