Zoomlion Ghana Limited has started vector control activities in public senior high schools in the Eastern, Ashanti and the Northern Regions.
The exercise which is under the auspices of Ministry of Education (MoE) seeks to rid-off bedbugs, mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies, ants, reptiles, rodents among others which normally distracts the effective learning environments of students.
Some Senior High Schools visited in the Eastern, Ashanti and Northern regions saw the team busily fumigating school dormitories, classrooms, laboratories, offices, staff bungalows, drains, mattresses, chop boxes among others.
The Headmaster of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS) in the Eastern region, Very Rev. Abraham Osei Donkor expressed appreciation to the Ministry and Zoomlion for undertaking this important health service.
He said, the exercise was timely especially as students are about to start serious academic works and there is the need to ensure that anything that disrupts smooth academic learning is taken care of.
The National Vector Control Coordinator of Zoomlion, Rev. Kwame Addae in an interview explained the two-week exercise is to ensure the successful implementation of its Free SHS Programme under a conducive learning environment for students.
