Sarpeiman M/A Primary
Introduction To Sarpeiman Primary
This appeal caught the attention of the authorities which led to the re-introduction of the primary school in 2002. Initially it started with basic one to three and pre-school. Through the sensitization of the community to participate in the provision of educational facilities, the community heeded to the appeal and constructed three classrooms to accommodate basic one to three. The school in December, 28 2002 benefitted from HIPC fund, which provided us with three additional classrooms. In 2010, the then Member of Parliament Mr. Ernest Atuquaye used part of his common fund to construct a block for the pre-school.
The vision of the school is to be the first choice primary school in Ghana and Africa and its mission is to ensure that children in the community and its surroundings acquire basic literacy, numeracy and problem solving skills as well as skills for creativity and healthy living.
Among the key objectives of the school are the following:
- To ensure a safe and caring environment capable of nurturing the children to enable them become healthy, alert and capable to learn and be creative.
- To encourage children to develop knowledge, attitudes and skills which are derived from creative experiences?
- To encourage children to reflect, think creatively and find out things for themselves to satisfy their curiosity, ask questions, criticize, solve problems, observe, view information critically and assimilate new knowledge.
The enrolment figure for the school currently stands at three hundred and seventy four (374), One hundred and eighty three (183) boys and one hundred and ninety one (191) girls. The school has staff strength of twelve made up of three males and nine females. It has a vibrant SMC and a P.T.A which have worked to promote the welfare of children, raise income to provide some basic needs and raise standard of children at home.
Given the school’s vision and objectives, it has come to the following conclusions:
- The school needs a team of teachers that will create a safe and caring environment.
- The school needs technological devices that will enable children to explore and develop their God given talents.
- The school also has to employ modern teaching methods to enable children reflect, think creatively and find out things for themselves to satisfy their curiosity.
It is on the basis of the above conclusions, that the school welcomes the introduction of the Ghana Reads Project, which seeks to use technological devices and modern teaching methods to enable children reflect, think creatively and find out things for themselves to satisfy their curiosity. The school believes and hopes that, this project will help it attain its vision of becoming the first choice primary school in Ghana and Africa.
