The people of Tuonbo ,a farming community in the Sawla- Tuna- Kalba District of the Savannah Region have appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES) for classroom block and also post trained teachers to enhance effective teaching and learning in the school.
The District Assembly Primary School, with an enrolment of more than 300 pupils, is manned by one trained teacher and two National Service Personnel’s.
A community member told Yagbon News that the bad structure of the school does not promote effective teaching and learning as academic works comes to a halt whenever there is a downpour.
Parents choose to send their wards to the farms than the school as they argued that the school structure is a death trap and hence does promote a Serene atmosphere for learning, the community member told Yagbon News.
According to the community member, the school was established in 2014 and had not yet seen any development as the over 300 pupils stiil study under a collapsing thatch with no furniture.
One of the teachers who spoke to Yagbon News on condition of anonymity said due to the deplorable condition of the school, attendance is irregular among pupils and there is also difficulty in maintaining order in the school.
We are poised to deliver our best to develop these future leaders and we need the support to do that – the teacher appealed.
The people of Tuonbo are therefore appealing to the general public, co- operate societies, the District Assembly and the Ghana Education Service to come to their aid.
However, there are still a number of schools in the Sawla- Tuna- Kalba District with similar conditions of classrooms structures; they include Yolyiri primary school, Digzie primary school and Damiyiri primary school.
