school pupils

Mr Gordon Mmrame, the headteacher of Baokyeasua Community Primary School in the Asunafo North Municipality, has appealed for classroom blocks.
He said the school has a pupil-population of 112 pupils, from kindergarten to class three, indicating that the thatched structures they studied under were so dilapidated, and therefore posed a threat to the lives of the pupils.
Mr Mmrame made the appeal when Mr Raphael Godlove Ahenu, the Chief Executive Officer of the Global Media Foundation (GLOMEF), a media advocacy and anti-corruption Non-Governmental Organisation visited the school.
He explained that many school-going age children were denied access to basic education, because the school was the only one in the area and authorities could not admit more because of the lack of classroom blocks.
Mr Mmrame also complained about inadequate learning and teaching materials, stressing that because the school was established by the community, it did not have enough funds to pay salaries of the four teachers, and to also procure teaching materials.
Mr Ahenu noted with regret that many school-going age children, especially those in deprived communities, still lacked access to formal education.
He observed that denying children access to quality education was against their human rights, and pledged his NGO’s support for the school with some teaching and learning materials.
Mr Ahenu advised parents in the area to endeavour to provide their children with some of their basic educational needs.
