THE Catholic Diocese of Obuasi is constructing a six-classroom block for the Kwabenakwa Primary School near Obuasi.
The project is part of efforts of the diocese to improve the standard of education within the Obuasi area.
An amount of GH¢42,000 was realised at a diocesan development fundraising harvest at Obuasi recently to support the school project and two others.
The other projects are a chapel for the Our Lady of Lake Grotto at Abono and the millennium gues thouse for the diocese at Obuasi.
Speaking at the function, the Catholic Bishop of Obuasi, the Most Rev. Gabriel Yaw Anokye, said the diocese was committed to seeing to the infrastructure development in the district, especially schools because education is the key to the development of the area.
He appealed to Catholics in particular and non-Catholics in general to support the diocese to undertake more development projects.
The Most Rev. Anokye added that the church was determined to complete the school project before the beginning of the next academic year.
A leading member of the the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Paul Victor Obeng, who chaired the function, urged the people to contribute generously towards the completion of the school project.
He enjoined parents to invest in the education of their children, especially the girls, to enable them become responsible citizens in future.
Mr Obeng personally donated GH¢2,000 towards the project.
