Hon. Alim Kuusari Enbong, the Assembly Member of the Chache Electoral Area in the Bole District of the Savannah region, has appealed to benevolent individuals, groups, and organizations to help renovate the Chache community classroom block.
Hon. Alim, in an interview with Yagbon News, said the classroom block housed classes one to six with an office for the headmaster.
He said the last renovation works on the building was in 2011, where only the roof of the school was worked on but its current state is almost deteriorating if immediate steps are not taken in repairing the almost ripped off roof of the school.
The Assemblyman, said the structure needed to be renovated and reroofed to protect life and property and to ensure an effective and quality learning and teaching environment.
According to him, the children did not feel safe anytime it rained, adding that they tried moving from one corner to the other just to escape from the rain as a result of the leaking roof.
He said due to roof leaks, teachers found it difficult to paste their Teaching Learning Resources (TLRs) on the walls to enhance quality teaching and that this was impacting negatively on academic performance.
The Headmaster, whose office was not spared when it rains said he had to change positions to find a safe place. “This is a huge problem. We need help.”he told Yagbon News.
The Assemblyman, described the classroom block as deplorable and a threat to the lives and property of the school children and teachers.
“We are appealing to all philanthropists and individuals who can help us to renovate the classroom block so that our pupils will learn under decent conditions for academic excellence. ”Hon. Alim added.
The Assemblyman noted that appeals to authorities at the Bole District Assembly were yet to receive positive responses.
