The people at Sefwi Nkra, a farming community in the Sefwi Akontomra District of the W/R. are worried about their children studying under trees. In an interview with the Assistant Headteacher, Mr. Francis Gyabeng and the Class teacher, Mad. Hager Oppong, they explained that it is very sad for these children to be treated this way.
They continued that the children has always been chasing out by snakes during lesson hours which has brought fears to both the students and the teachers. Again, because of lack of furniture in the school the students has to carry chairs from their various houses to come and sit on. They added that in the cause of raining, the students have to run back home with their chairs which at times cause accidents and they doesn’t come back after the rain.
The class teacher, Mad. Hager continued that there is no blackboard and teachers table which of cause is a big problem in her teaching. The Chief Linquist of the town, Nana Joseph Adams that added he is disappointed in the D.C.E. for the area Hon. Peter Nkoah for rejecting the Nkra community in terms of developments.
He explained that sometime ago he and his chief Nana Minta went to the DCEs’ office to seek for an assistance since the community were doing their best to put up a school building for the K.G.1&2 children. He says the DCE, Hon. Peter Nkoah made it categorically clear to them that since, he has heard that the Nkra community is an NPP seats he, doesn’t have anything for them. He continued that the DCE said the Assembly is doing a lot of educational projects but the Nkra community should not think or dream to enjoy such projects.
Nana Joseph Adams added once again that since the children are the future leaders the government should come and help them and also advise his people about how they come out with their speeches, because they all contribute to the developments of the nation.
