Mr. Gyamfi, the Assistant Director of the TMA on his part, commended the German students for the show of love and urged the administration of Chemu to put in the necessary measures to ensure that the items were put to good use and well maintained.
Mr. Clements Baba, Headteacher of Chemu SHS, receiving the items, said it was a fulfillment of a dream saying that it would be used for ICT core and elective teaching and learning.
Mr. Baba said they would take a cue from the German students to set up a shop to sell the numerous products from students of the visual arts and used the proceeds to equip the department.
He noted that the school’s visual arts department was in serious need of rehabilitation as its roof was currently leaking badly.
The building had not seen any renovation since its construction 35 years ago.
