The Obawale Methodist Primary School in Yilo Krobo Municipality in the Eastern Region is in a dilapidated condition and needs immediate attention to ensure quality education for students.
The school, which was established in 1965 and with a total enrollment of 160 students, has not experienced any renovation since its inception resulting in the destruction of windows, roofs, doors and the like.
Mr. John Mautsueni, Chairman of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Obawale Methodist Primary School, told GNA in an interview that the students were exposed to harsh weather conditions which affected their academic performance.
He noted that in 2019, the municipality started construction of a new school building to accommodate the students, but was interrupted along the way.
We have sent several letters to both the municipality and the Methodist Church of Somanya Diocese for assistance, but no response has yet been received.
Mr Mautsueni, said the school toilets were not a topic of discussion as they did not meet standard requirements posing a hazard to students.
Mr. Eric Hini, Director of Municipal Coordination of Yilo Krobo, assured us that plans were underway to improve the teaching and learning structure.
