Zoomlion supports KNUST students with 50 laptops under SONSOL project

Over 593 brilliant and needy students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have received laptops to support their education. The project dubbed; ‘Support One Needy Student with One Laptop’ (SONSOL), solicits the support of all stakeholders to provide one laptop to such students.

The laptops, valued at GH¢2.96 million, were donated by corporate organisations, alumni of the university and some distinguished personalities. The beneficiaries were selected from over 4,375 applicants.

For freshers, their WASSCE aggregates were not to exceed 18 and for continuing students, they should have attained a CWA of at least 55.00.In addition, all students who were already benefiting from any scholarship or bursary above GH¢2,000 were not eligible for the award.

The Vice-Chancellor of KNUST, Prof Rita Akosua Dickson, in a brief remark, said, “When we published the call for students to apply to be considered for the laptops, we had an overwhelming number and we only have a limited number of laptops to give out,” she noted.“

Considering the number of laptops we have received and the number of students needing genuine help after the stringent, water-tight screening, we can only appeal for more laptops even beyond today’s ceremony,” she added.

Presenting the 50 laptops to the university, the Director for Communications & Corporate Affairs of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mrs Emma Akyea-Boakye, in her solidarity message, said this innovation by the university was in line with the company’s mission of improving the lives of the people and their environment.

Double-Track System Can Be Mentained In Some Senior High Schools – GES




The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Prof Kwasi Amankwah says government must reconsider a continuation of the double-track system in some Senior High Schools (SHS).

This follows the suspension of the double-track system employed across the country after the reopening of schools for the 2020/21 academic year.

The green and gold double-track system was introduced by government to enable various senior high schools to take in more students due to infrastructural deficit in the various schools.

But announcing the reopening of schools in the country in an address to the nation, President Akufo-Addo explained that his government has been able to embark on infrastructural development in the various senior high schools (SHS), hence the decision to halt the exercise.

However, speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen after the release of the 2020/2021 SHS placement, Prof Amankwah said there must be a reintroduction in at least the country’s 50 top schools.

He stressed some of these schools are still over-subscribed which means a team of these students would be out of school for the academic year in view.

Prof Amankwah mentioned Wesley Girls, Achimota, Aggrey Memorial, Prempeh College, and St Roses among others, adding that most of these schools still have a lot of outstanding qualified students.

“I sometimes wonder if we cannot relook at our double-track system though we have been able to expand certain facilities.

“We could have divided the numbers we are getting this year if that was still in place. So if we can agree to continue in at least our top 50 schools, it would have increased enrollment for our own good,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service has published the 2020 Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) into Senior High Schools and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Schools (TVETS).

In a statement issued by the Service, out of the total number of 533,693 registered candidates, 494,530 candidates qualified to be placed.

Whilst 343, 264 of the candidates were automatically placed in one of their choice of school, 151,266 qualified candidates could not be matched with any of their choices.

The Service has therefore instructed such students “to do self-placement to select from available schools.”

For the 151,266 qualified candidates who could not be matched with any of their selected schools, GHS noted that they will be redirected to the Self-Placement Portal where they will be asked to answer some questions.

“Management of Ghana Education Services wishes to assure all students, especially, those who could not be matched with their choices during the automatic placement, parents and the general public that all schools with vacancies have been uploaded on the portal for students to select from during self-placement without hitches,” the statement added.
