Republic Bank (Ghana) PLC, a subsidiary of Republic Financial Holdings Limited (RFHL) of Trinidad and Tobago, has supported the Takoradi Senior High School with a total sum of Fifty Thousand Ghana cedis (GH¢50,000.00) toward the purchase of laboratory stools for the school’s Science Department.
According to the school’s Headmaster, Mr. E. Akoto Bruce, despite having produced several past students in various fields of work serving humanity, the school’s laboratory has not received the necessary support in the past. He believed that the situation did not create the needed enabling atmosphere for teaching and learning, hence, the appeal to the bank for help.
The support is part of the bank’s CSR Strategy to support the Sustainable Devolvement Goals (SDG-4) on Quality Education. The provision of the laboratory stools will go a long way to encourage the students to learn Science and improve the general performance of the school.
Speaking on the donation, the Takoradi Branch Manager, Mr. Akwasi Afriyie Opoku, who presented the cheque on behalf of the Managing Director of Republic Bank Ghana PLC, Mr. Benjamin Dzoboku, pledged the bank’s commitment to the school authorities and indicated that the bank would support them the best way the bank could.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of the school, the Headmaster of the school thanked the Managing Director of the bank, and promised to ensure that the money is used judiciously toward its intended purpose.
