Each of the school Lab had 10 computers and accessories connected with internet.

She added that, in modern day evolution of ICT taking over the world in all spheres of life, there is the need for them not to be left out.

 Mr. Opoku said the school authority should also take into consideration of security of their computer Labs to avoid being stolen since some communities in the area have experienced such act.
