Lack of Infrastructure at legendary Bagabaga Primary compels authorities to place 160 pupils in a class



Inadequate classrooms at the Bagabaga demonstration primary school B have compelled authorities to combine two classes in order not to exposes the pupils to the mercy of the weather.

The school which was supposed to have 12 classrooms for normal teaching and learning now operates in 11 classes.

Headmistress of the school, Ms. Francsica Awuni who disclosed this to Zaa News during the 21 days MTN Yellow care challenge, said the school lacks basic amenities such as water sanitation facilities, computers coupled with inadequate classrooms.
The over 647 pupils are scrambling with their teachers for space during lesson hours.
The headmistress while appealing to government and the Sagnarigu district assembly for help is hoping that, the capitation grant if enough will be use to address some pressing problems before any aid. Pupils, she said, practice open defecation while teachers inconvenience inhabitants in the nearby bungalows any time they want to use the bathroom.

The circuit supervisor for the area, Mr. Baba Oscar Timothy commended teachers for their commitment to duty. He said the teachers cannot absent themselves because of the school’s proximity to the Sagnarigu district education office.

He said: “I have reported schools with similar problems to the office and the directorate for solutions,”

The staff, he added, identified basic and secondary educational institutions and provide support in the area of learning materials to pupils.
