The Holy Trinity Lutheran School, Kumasi branch, has unveiled a multimillion two-storey educational learning centre to promote reading and information technology among pupils.
The building is made up of a fully furnished computer laboratory with 40 new desktop computers, an ultra-modern library, two large halls and various offices for administrative purposes.
The construction, which started in August last year, was an initiative of the Director of Schools and projects, Mr Kwadwo Gyamfi, and his team from the Evangelical Lutheran Church Schools.
Impact of Lutheranism
The President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, Ghana, Rt Rev. Dr Paul Kofi Fynn, who inaugurated the building, lauded the great efforts of the Lutheran Church globally in influencing the present generation positively with sterling educational qualities.
He specifically mentioned the role of the church in establishing more universities (about 40) in the United States alone, which made it a front runner in tertiary education.
Rt Rev. Dr Fynn urged Ghanaians to carefully examine the good impact the Lutheran Schools in Ghana were making; hence, the need to sell the schools to the public.
He acknowledged the excellent training some early missions, including the Basel and Wesleyan institutions, had provided over the years in building discipline among students, which the Lutheran Church Schools were also building on.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Mr Osei Assibey Antwi, commended the Evangelical Lutheran Church Schools for their long service of nurturing young budding ones for the future.
