The Enterprise Group has cut sod for the construction of a modern three-story classroom block at the Bishop Mixed JHS, next door to the Enterprise House on the John Evans Atta-Mills High Street, Accra. The new block will come with nine (9) classrooms, washrooms on each floor, a 3- bed infirmary, spacious computer laboratory, a modern library, and an office for the headteacher.
The project, which involves the demolishing of an uncompleted block as well as the construction of the new block, comes at a cost of GHS 2.5 Million and it is expected to be completed within a year. The Chief Executive Officer of the Enterprise Group, Keli Gadzekpo, in his remarks at the sod-cutting ceremony said, “this school project gives me pleasure for two simple reasons;
The construction of the new classroom block is but one of the many corporate social investments carried out by the Enterprise Group at the Bishop Mixed JHS and at other locations across the country.

The program is aimed at equipping the students, teachers, and parents with basic personal financial skills to enable them to make qualified financial decisions for the future.
