Introduction To Katapor M/A Primary

Katapor M/A Primary School is a public school in the Ga-West Municipality. It is located about 3km from Pokuase towards its west. The school was started as a community school with the assistant from the World Vision International (W.V.I) in March 1985 with a nursery. This nursery was housed temporarily at the premises of Katapor Good News Church.

In the course of time, the need arose for permanent structure to be built. As a result, a three classroom block, an office and a store were built in 1987. Furniture and teaching aids were supplied by    (W.V.I). Later, the lower and upper primary blocks were also built with the assistant again from (W.V.I)

In 1992/93 academic year, the school was absorbed into the mainstream as a public school. Six trained teachers were posted to the school as well as some nursery attendants. In 2003/04, a staff bungalow was also  built. The school has a big playing ground for co-curricular activities and also a well spaced library which is shared with the Junior High School. The school benefits from the school feeding program. It has been connected to the national grid as well, thanks to the school P.T.A  and Open Learning Exchange (O.L.E) Ghana. This has helped in the teaching of I.C.T and in the usage of the equipment donated by OLE Ghana as part of the GhanaLITE project.

Currently, the school has thirteen (13) teachers on staff (Kindergarten to primary six) and 286 pupils. Before the school joined the GhanaLITE program being run by OLE Ghana, the number on roll was 243.

Though the school lacks a lot of teaching and learning resources for the Kindergarten (KG) and sports     equipment it is doing its very best to produce worthy future leaders for the country thus attracting a lot of support. Again, OLE Ghana has started another project in the school dubbed ”Ghana Reads” which is expected to help improve upon literacy in the school. This project covers the whole school (ie) from KG-P6. It is our hope that by the end of this project in the school, Katapor M/A Primary School will be one of the top most public basic schools in the country.
