The donation also aims to improve teaching and learning while alleviating housing stress among teachers.
Mrs. Mercy Araba Sika Tobbin, the wife of Elder Amo Tobbin I, who led the Tobbin family and school officials in cutting the ribbon to officially hand over the edifice to the school, praised the teaching staff for their hard work and imparting knowledge in their children, as well as championing human development, particularly women.
The facility includes a six-bedroom self-contained unit with a kitchen, hall, storage rooms, and a toilet, among other amenities.
Abigail Tobbin, on behalf of the family, presented the keys to the management of the Wesley Girls SHS and expressed gratitude to the school for the impact of the knowledge instilled in students.
Most Rev. Dr. Paul Boafo, the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana, who dedicated the building, commended the Tobbin Family for the kind gesture.
He believes that the facility will undoubtedly help teachers with their housing needs at the school.
