The 1997 year group of the Field Engineers Basic School (FEBSCO 97) has handed over 40 desktop computers to their alma mater.

The computers are to facilitate and enhance effective teaching and learning of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the school.

The computers were handed over to the school today (August 5) as part of the year group’s 25th anniversary celebration.

Two extra computers were handed over to the head teachers of streams A and B of the Field Engineers Basic School.

Aside from the computers, the year group is also spearheading a massive fundraising drive to construct the first phase of a three-unit classroom block to help address the infrastructural challenges that the school is faced with.

Technology

The President of the year group, Major Osei Gyasi, explained that technology played a key role in the ever changing world, hence the need to ensure that the alma matter had enough computers to help make learning of ICT easier.

“It was worrying to see students learning ICT without actually physically touching and feeling a computer during and after lesson,” he said.

He urged the school to use the initiative as the foundation to pursue opportunities in other learning areas of ICT such as coding for the students.

Maj. Gyasi further entreated the school to cultivate the habit of regular maintenance since the school was close to the sea.

Commitment

For her part the Chairperson of the anniversary planning committee, Nana Beya, said the year group would continue to solicit support from within the year group and externally to complete the classroom project.

She called on other year groups to put their shoulders to the wheel to help make the project a reality.

Again, she advised the students to be diligent and commit themselves to producing excellent results in their academic activities as that would help them gain admission to better schools.

She also urged them to pay attention to their teachers, adding: “You are halfway done if you pay attention to what the teacher is saying”.

Gratitude

The Head teacher of Field Engineer “A” primary and Junior High School, Mabel Sappey, expressed gratitude to the group for giving back to their alma matter.

She assured the past students that the items would be used for the benefit of the students.
