This is the 21st century and still we hear traumatizing news on school children’s exposure to harsh learning conditions. This is a very sad circumstance. Some 160 children from Goo-Atandaa KG/Primary School in Ghana were being deprived of conducive classrooms.
A number of the children have their lessons inside a crowded church structure on the school’s premises where the majority of them sit on a sandy floor, and some others, a massive leafy tree. Frustrated teachers usually have no choice but to deliver lessons to the rest of the pupils under some shade trees being used as makeshift classrooms. The children, when thirsty, suffer a long-distance search for water as there is no portable water source within reach.
This harsh conditions subjected them to a terrible bee attack not so long a go where a whole lot of them were wounded and bruised. They cried unto the Ghanaian government and the DCE held an emergency meeting with the authorities of the school and subsequently pledged government would facilitate the construction of a nine-unit classroom block promised by a philanthropist, Dr Patricia Essilfie, founder of the Boys and Girls Club of Ghana.
The DCE exceeded the expectations of the school as he included free school uniforms and a feeding program for all students of the institution by including the school in the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP) list this academic term.
On his second visit, he applauded the remarkable transformation in the disposition of the kids and their learning environment. He was grateful that they were no longer sitting under trees and the former close-to-void environment had become filled with learning furniture.
