She said that the provision of the zebra- crossing near the school would improve the flow and safety of the traffic in the morning drops and afternoon pick- ups.
“At least if traffic wardens would be brought to control the traffic in the area in the morning and afternoons when the children are been dropped and picked- up respectively, it would help us. We also need zebra crossing. The speed ramps are not good and need to be fixed to slow down the speed of the recalcitrant drives that use the road,” Mrs. Vida Adu- Amankwa appealed.
Mrs. Vida Adu- Amankwa made this passionate appeal during the official launching of the school’s 10 year anniversary.
She said the increased traffic has created a potential hazard with cars leaving the campus having limited vision around the line of cars waiting to turn into the school.
She complained about countless previous fruitless efforts to relevant authorities to address the challenge and called on Honourable Mr. Akwanuasa Gyimah, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Asokwa Municipal Assembly to assist to expedite prompt action, to save the worrying situation.
Announcing the activities to mark the 10th anniversary of the school, she said that, 5th March, 2019 has been set as ‘Occupational Day’, when the children would choose and demonstrate what they would like to become in future.
“Interestingly, most of the children have chosen to follow the footsteps of Anan Aremeyaw Anas so on that day most of them would dress like Anas and interview people,” she hinted.
According to her, there would be a cleanup exercises at Gyinase Township and Ahinsan Estate.
The school will also visit the Oncology Department of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where they will make a donation to support the hospital.
In his welcome address, the Board Chairman of the School, Bishop Nuh –Ben Abubekr said the purpose of the establishment of the school was meant to alleviate the suffering of the professional mothers.
“When a woman completes her education, the next thing is to get married and then she will bring forth. This time it is dangerous to take house maids, so they will have to get a place where they will be sure that their children would be well taking care of,” he added.
He appealed to parents to continue to cooperate with the management of the school. “It’s very difficult taking care of these children at their tender ages. The teachers are human beings and we appeal to the parents to bear with them so that there will be peace and corporation and cordiality ’, he said.
Bethelinter Academy was established in 2009 with five children and five workers now boasts of over one thousand pupils.
