The Dadematse of Asesewa in the Upper Manya Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region, Nene Addo John Teye has appealed to Non-Governmental Organisations, stakeholders and individuals to assist the Town’s Community A D/A Primary School which is in a deplorable state.
The Dadematse made the appeal in an interview with CTV News’ Kamal Ahmed.
According to the King, the school needs assistance to enable it produce quality students for the community and the entire country.
The Asesewa Community A D/A Primary School, situated in the heart of the town, lacks infrastructure.
There is a lack of furniture and toilet facilities for both students and teachers, ICT laboratory, teaching and learning materials among others coupled with the weak building serving as classrooms.
Teachers of the school, use a Neem tree under which they sit, as the their staff common room.
Also, due to the absence of an ICT laboratory, teachers have to draw the computer and its components on the board to aid teaching of the subject.
Chairman of the School’s Management Committee, Samuel Tettey Kwame told CTV News’ that, the school has been in a deplorable state for a while.
He noted that the school needs not less than 150 pieces of furniture and a proper building for pupils to study in, urgently.
The students currently study under sheds roofed with thatch and palm branches making it impossible for lessons to be held whenever it rains.
Mr Tettey therefore appealed to the people of Asesewa living in the diaspora and all persons who can be of help to come to the aid of the school.
