Ada West DCE Snubs PTA Over Ripped Off Classrooms Block

The District Chief Executive for Ada West, Adzoteye Laweh Akrofi was said to have snubbed PTA of the Anyamam D/A Junior High School when it drew his attention to their classrooms block which was ripped off.

Pupils have been learning under canopies and their canteen for the past three years, since the entire block was ripped off by a rainstorm.

WestAfrica 24.com visit to the school which coincided with a downpour saw pupils relocating their blackboards, desks and books to safety in one of the only two classrooms left, bringing school to an abrupt closure for the day.

Parents of the community have contributed to do the block works at the roof level, it is now left with woods and roofing sheets to fix the block and get pupils out of the vagaries of the unpredictable weather.

Some parents who spoke with WestAfrica24.com, on condition of anonymity said, the DCE when approached on the awful state of the school building told them that he knew nothing about how it was ripped off and would therefore not commit to helping roof it.

These parents say they have tried to convince the DCE but would not change his stance.

Pupils presently sometimes conduct studies in private apartments, a situation which is seriously affecting teaching and learning.

Adzoteye Larweh Akrofi last year promised to help provide desks for classes one and two pupils of the Kablevu D/A Basic School, but the pupils still sit on pieces of cement blocks in a sandy environment of an uncompleted Church building to learn.
