The Bekwai Municipal Assembly on Thursday 22nd August 22, 2019, inaugurated two separate classroom blocks for two different schools in the municipality as parts of efforts to improve educational infrastructure.

The two projects are two- unit day nursery block at Abodom and a six-unit classroom block to replace a dilapidated one for Dotom D/A Primary school. Both projects come with toilet facilities, ceiling fan, headmaster’s office, staff common room, dual desk in all the classrooms and a store room. The two projects were financed by Getfund.

The Bekwai Municipal Chief Executive, Hon Kwaku Kyei Baffour who commissioned both projects in the company of Hon. Joseph Osei-Wusu, Member of Parliament for Bekwai, said the provision of infrastructure to schools in the municipality was critical to quality education. Addressing Traditional Rulers, Heads of Department and members of the communities at separate functions, the M.C.E said the assembly would continue to provide educational infrastructure and the needed resources to schools in the municipality for effective academic work.
