E/R: Nkurakan residents worried over deathtrap Presbyterian JHS school

The Presbyterian JHS School at Nkurakan, a farming community, in the Yilo Krobo Municipality near koforidua in the Eastern Region, has been using a deathtrap school building facility that poses danger to both teachers and pupils of the school over the past years.

The school which serves the whole of the community and neighbouring communities, has been left to rot without any maintenance.

The PTA chairman of the presbyterian JHS school Nkurakan, Mr Tetteh Wayo
who spoke to David Ayertey Nenebi, stated that the pupils’ lives were in danger studying under the deathtrap structure.

The Assembly Member for Hon Thomas Afridi he fears for the safety of the children especially whenever it’s about to rain.

According to him, “the building has cracks in it, which can be easily broken down by a heavy rain”.

The headmester of the school said though she reported the case to the Assembly Member and PTA chairman for the area, the school yet to receive any feedback.

They therefore appealed to non-governmental organisations and other stakeholders to help salvage the facility.

The building was constructed over fifty years ago (50) under the former British administration and it is the only government basic school serving communites within the area.
