Cape Coast, Jan.31 GNA- Teachers at Cape Coast Amanful Catholic Boys Junior High School (JHS), have threatened to strike if the Metropolitan Assembly fails to stop people from dumping refuse on campus and using the facility as a place of convenience.

Mrs Georgina Nkum, Head teacher of the school issued the threat on behalf of her colleagues, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after a church service at the Amanful St Joseph Catholic church to climax this year’s Catholic Education week celebration.

He said most teachers have also threatened to leave the school.

She said numerous complaints to the Metropolitan Assembly had felt on deaf ears, thereby making teaching and learning unbearable.

Mrs Nkum said the school compound is also used as a football park for the surrounding communities, while the walls are defaced with posters.

On the Academic performance of the school, Mrs Nkum said most of the students are performing poorly and attributed the situation to truancy by most of them, who had to engage in child labour to fund their education.

This, she said is affecting their preparation towards the Basic Education Certificate Examination.

She said the school had decided to organise extra classes for the final year students.

An appeal for funds in aid of the celebration of the week yielded GH? 109,000 which was shared among St Michael’s, Amanful Catholic Boys JHS and Amanful Catholic Boys Primary School.
