From Isaac Akwetey-Okunor,
The pupils of the Nkurakan Presbyterian Primary and Junior High School (JHS) in the Yilo Krobo Municipality are appealing to the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Yilo Krobo Municipal Assembly for a befitting school building to facilitate effective and efficient teaching and learning in the area.
The school is battling with space for the children and teachers, following a rainstorm that collapsed the aged school pavilion barely a year ago.
Due to the population of the school, the authorities have adopted a shift system as part of measures to mitigate the situation in another old structure.
Notwithstanding that, the Eastern File observed that the school has only one desktop computer for theory and not practical ICT teaching, since the school has no electricity.
Ina an interview with the Chairman of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA), Mr. Samuel Teye Wayoe, he said due to the infrastructural deficit, the PTA is helping to construct a new building through a levy of GH¢20 imposed on each student per a term.
He claimed PTA and the school authorities have written numerous letters to the Ghana Education Service and Yilo Krobo Municipal Chief Executive, Ebenezer Tetteh Kupualor, for support, but all efforts have been unsuccessful.
The school authorities are appealing to the government, and old students of the school to come to the aid of their Alma Mater to help build a new classroom for the students.
