PRESTEA: Atechem English & Arabic School calls for help
|School children|| |
The Prestea Huni Valley District Assembly has been called on to give attention towards the construction of a new classroom block for students of the Atechem English and Arabic school to boost teaching and learning.
The Assemblyman for the area, Bob Oduro Arhin, however expressed worry on how studies are conducted in a mosque which he said is mostly affected by activities of the Muslims community especially during times of prayer.
He said the Assembly somewhere last year considered the construction of a 6-unit classroom block for the school in its budget for this year but wondered why the school was still conducting lessons in the mosque.
He therefore urged the Assembly to step-up it efforts in order to help rescue the situation.
Still on education, the Assemblyman also noted that the community’s Anglican Junior High School needed to be relocated to a new classroom since the old structure is likely to collapse as a result of its poor state.
On sanitation, Mr. Arhin, further called for construction of a new KVIP toilet facility in the area, adding that the lone toilet facility which community members used to access has been closed for the past 2 years, creating inconveniences for inhabitants.
