Christ the King International School has cut sod for the construction of an ultramodern classroom facility to enhance teaching and learning and also give it a facelift.
The project, according to the Chairman of the Technical Committee for the School’s project, Samuel Amegayibot said the project is expected to address the enrolment and space issues that have been battling the school for some years.
Mr. Amegayibot indicated that the planning of the project began some years ago but could not see the light of the day until another board was put together to facilitate the redevelopment of the school’s facility.
The school, which is 60 years old, has not received any major form of infrastructural upgrade, hence the need to have the project done to put the school in a proper and befitting shape. The school currently houses about 900 students from primary to Junior High School (JHS).
An estimated amount of GH¢25,520, 000.00 is expected to complete the project within a period of three to four years if funds are made available. He said the consultations have been made with the contractor to begin work anytime soon.
Authorities of the school, together with the entire Christ the King students body have made an appeal to stakeholders, organisations, churches, individuals among others to support the school in completing the project.
“We are appealing to benevolent society philanthropists, individuals, organisations, schools, churches who will be touched by this project and will see the overall benefit of the project to donate generously to the project and also alumni, we are gathering the year groups. There is a strategy to get them. Some of them are already organized so we will use those who are already organized to expand it to get all the other teams on board and the fundraising is never ending one,” he appealed.
