The lab serves as both an ICT center and an e-library, equipped with computers and a wide range of books.

Odamtten emphasized the importance of equipping students with the tools to participate in the technological revolution, fostering enthusiasm and skill development in computer engineering.

The coding clubs established under the Ashai ICT agenda have already seen students participating in international ICT competitions.

Odamtten assured the public of the sustainability of these computer labs and revealed plans to equip the remaining two basic schools in the constituency with similar facilities.

The Tema Metropolitan Director of Education, Madam Bernice Ofori, praised the rapid pace of providing computer labs to schools in the metropolis, crediting corporate support and expressing confidence in achieving 100 percent coverage within the next two years.

Currently, sixty percent of schools have computer labs.

The Ashai ICT agenda is a significant step forward in preparing students for a technology-driven future, fostering both academic and personal growth.
