The Ghana Project entails Project Monday working with The Senchi-Ferry Methodist School located in Senchi, Ghana. Since its founding in 1939, the school’s infrastructure has improved and has given room for high enrollment but as it stands now, there is an empty Computer Lab which is having a significant effect on the students Information Communication Technology (ICT) studies and research.
We are asking for your help.
Our goal is to completely outfit the Computer Lab with desktops.
BRIEF HISTORY OF SENCHI-FERRY METHODIST JHS
The idea of establishing Senchi-Ferry Methodist School was conceived in the year 1939. In the year 1932 Mr. James Ebenezer Cato of the united Africa Company (UAC) introduced the Methodist church. The Methodist faith was embraced by the masses.
The Methodist Church grew from strength to strength and a singing band was also established during that period. The performance of the group unfolded many talents of its members in the community. The achievements of the singing band motivated the church to establish the Senchi-Ferry Methodist School in 1939 as the first primary school in Senchi Township, with the aim of molding Christ-like individuals through the formal education.
The school’s infrastructure has improved and has given room for high enrollment drive but as it stands now we have an empty computer Lab and Library which is having a great effect on ICT studies and students research.
Currently the school’s student population from JHS (1-3) is 287 with 18 able teaching staff. In the field of academics the BECE results have improved over the years.
