The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) has presented 10 Public Address Systems (PAS), two saxophones (Tenor and Alto), ceiling fans, and some dustbins to the University.
The items worth more than GHC21,000, are supplementary to the provisions the University Management has made to enhance teaching, learning, and general living on campus.
Receiving the items on June 16, 2021, the Acting Registrar of AAMUSTED, Mr. Michael K. Adu, indicated that the timing of the donation was appropriate since the University was in the process of acquiring more PA Systems to augment the many that are already in use at the University.
Therefore, he described the SRC’s move as very thoughtful, explaining that the items donated would go a long way to support teaching, learning, and various non-academic activities on campus.
Mr. Adu thanked the benefactors and added that their gesture would become a worthy example to all the students and others in the University Community to follow.“We shall take very good care of all the things you have presented to us for them to last for the good of the students who might even come to this school after you have completed and left,” he assured the donors.
Presenting the items earlier, the President of the AAMUSTED SRC, Mr. Richard Opoku said the SRC did needs assessment of students and arrived on the items donated to address some of them. He said his administration had focused on the welfare of students since assuming office, explaining that as a reason for the presentation of the ceiling fans, which he hoped would be installed at the students’ canteen to improve ventilation there.
Again, he hinted that his administration is on the verge of inaugurating a special fund to support Persons (Students) with Disabilities (PWDs) in the University. Moreover, Mr. Opoku said the SRC had instituted a Sanitation Club to champion cleanliness and orderliness on campus.
He was thankful to all students for the cooperation his administration had enjoyed and assured them that the SRC leadership would continue to support them in every way practicable.
