Mr Salifu Awuni Headteacher of Woromso D/A school in the Asutifi South District of the Ahafo Region has appealed to government and corporate entities to support the school with chairs and tables to enhance teaching and learning activities.
The Headteacher who made the appeal in an interview with the Oyerepaonline reporter, Sulley Dramani at Woromso said it was important that all communities came together to financially support schools in their localities to help achieve academic excellence.
Currently, 174 student population sit in threes and fours per one dual desk, a situation, the headteacher indicated had affected the quality of handwriting of pupils and created lots of discomfort during classes.
The terrible situation in the school, according to him, has affected teachers’ morale and impacted negatively on enrollment and retention, as many of the children could not write well due to lack of space.
Mr Anass Musah Parents and Teacher’s Association Chairman is equally unhappy about the myriad challenges facing the school, appealed for urgent help to some situation.
According to him, the school was not stocked with furniture and other items would make the school building fully completed.
He called the Ahafo Regional Minister, George Yaw Boakye, the Member of parliament for Asutifi South constituency, Alhaji Collins Dauda, NGOs and philanthropist to come to the aid of the school. Adding that many parents, who could not cope with the conditions of the only school in the area, have had their children moved out to Ata me Ata, a nearby community.
Mr Anass then pleaded for its inclusion in the schools’ feeding programme to bring some relief to the pupils because many of them are from poor homes.
He spoke of high level of poverty among parents in the area, a situation that had often forced significant proportion of the children to attend school on empty stomach.
