A rainstorm has caused damage to Atwiriboada D.A Basic School in Ghana’s Central Region leading to pupils studying under trees at the vagaries of weather.
The Head Teacher of Atwiribaoda District Assembly (D/A) Basic School in the Assin North district of the Central Region, Wisdom Amenu, has announced that the school will receive a temporary structure for school activities to return to normalcy after a rainstorm ripped off the roof of the school two weeks ago.
The DCE for the area has delegated some officers from the assembly including the planning officer and the engineer to assess the situation which has led to pupils studying under trees at the vagaries of the weather.
The head teacher told the host of the Ghana Yensom morning show, Odehyeeba Kofi Essuman, on Accra 100.5 FM on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, that two officers were sent to assess the situation for the construction of a makeshift structure to serve the pupils. On his part, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Assin North District Assembly, Charles Andoh Snr, has assured teachers, parents and pupils that a makeshift structure will be completed by the end of this week.
He said that a beam should be cut to provide wood for mounting structures. “I have desks and they will also be made available to the school immediately after the structures are completed by workmen,” he said.
