The newly installed chief of Kyekyewere in the Ayensuano District of the Eastern Region is appealing to government to fix their dilapidated school block.
Nana Okunini Gyebi Kwame Ababio (ll) said the whole roof has become rotten and porous thus allowing water to seep through when it rains.
This, according to the chief, leads to disruption in academic activities since whenever it rains all the school children are asked to go home just so the rain wouldn’t cause any harm to the students.
He also stated that the classrooms are overcrowded and due to that the students don’t have enough space and chairs to sit comfortably to learn. He added that other teaching materials to assist them study hard at school are not available thus hampering academic work.
“It is unfortunate that all the schools here are bad. When it rains water pours through the roof and many things are just not in good shape. Schools are overcrowded and nothing is working meanwhile we all attended these schools.”
The chief said he has met all the teachers to see how they can pool resources to upgrade the teaching and learning materials while calling on government for further support to facilitate teaching and learning in the kyekyewere community.
Nana also appealed to the alumni of the school to contribute their widow’s mite for their predecessors to benefit as they did.
“I’ve sat with the teachers to discuss how best we can help rebuild the school. I’m also in talks with all Kyekyewere residents and old school students to come together to fix the school for those after us. I’m therefore appealing to the government to assist…”, he pleaded.
