The Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, paid a surprise working visit to some Senior High Schools in the Central Region today, Friday 23rd April, 2021.
The objective of the visit was to monitor the adherence of the protocols, implementation of the Free SHS Policy and teaching and learning.
The Minister was impressed with the activities in the schools and commended the Directorate for the good work.
The Minister also presented five (5) Digital Pianos to five basic schools to help in their creative arts lessons which includes music and cultural activities. Some schools already took delivery of the Pianos in April, 2019.

The schools included the following;
- St. Augustine’s Practice
- St. Monica’s JHS
- Okyeso Catholic Basic
- Baiden Walker JHS

This gesture was to augment the teaching of music in basic schools.
