Residents, teachers and pupils of Adarkwa Methodist primary school in the Suhum municipality of the Eastern region is calling for an immediate response from the government before any an unforeseen incident occurs.
Their plea is in connection of the poor state of the school building which is now seen as a deathtrap to both teachers and pupils.
The building, which encountered physical disability last two years due to heavy downpour is yet to see any renovation but it still serves as a host to both teachers and pupils.
Speaking to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Chairman, Mr Kwame Danso, he indicated that, both the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) and the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area has visited the school to access the damage but nothing has been done to wrestle the situation.
According to him, the situation is alarming as the class is halted anytime there are rains amidst other weather challenges.
Some students who spoke to Bryt FM news, could not hide their frustrations, indicating the situation has affected academic work for the past two years and appealed to appropriate authorities to renovate the death trap school building as a matter of urgency.
Students also complained of lack of teaching and learning materials as well as ICT centre which are a major challenge to the delivery of quality education in the community.
They, however, appealed to government, NGOs, Civil Society Groups as well as philanthropists to as matter of urgency, respond to their plea to ensure the quality of education in the community and its environs.
Suhum is among the stronghold constituencies in the country with Hon. Opare Ansah as the MP but it seems most of the communities are struggling in terms of development to better their lives.
