Fasin JHS block in ruins, roofing sheets hang loosely

An uncompleted school block which serves as classroom for pupils of Fasin, a community in the Ahanta West Municipality, is in total ruins.

The uncompleted structure, which serves both the primary and Junior High School is in total mess and at the mercy of the weather.

Looking at the condition of the school in this rainy season, there is the likelihood that it will be forced to shut down and resume when the raining season is over.

Pictures of the dilapidated school structure had already gone viral on social media.

The school structure in ruins

Assembly Member for the area, Osagyefo Stephen, told The Chronicle that he, together with the chiefs in the area, have forwarded a report to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ahanta West, drawing his attention to the dilapidated structure of the school.

The school, he said, was started as a communal project by the Fassin community with intent to build a primary and Junior High School for the community.

Hitherto, he said, the community accessed basic education from Kwamekrom.

However, with the growing population, Fasin decided to build her own JHS block. The chief of the village donated bags of cement and packs of iron sheets to raise the structure.

But due to financial constraints, they have been unable to complete it, leaving the structure in ruins.

He said when he assumed office as the elected Assembly Member he was briefed by the chief, regarding the project. He also consequently informed the MCE about the project, when the latter visited the community.
