The Northern Regional Education Director, Dr. Peter Attafuah has appealed to civil Society organizations and government to help renovate the St Charles school’s dormitories that were burnt down two and half years ago.
The dormitories which accommodated students were engulfed by fire on different occasions since march 2017 and had since not seen any rehabilitation. Dr. Peter Attafuah who is also the Acting headmaster of the school laments the situation affects teaching and learning. This he says has compelled the school to convert some of the school’s classrooms into temporary dormitories for the students.
Dr Attafuah made the appeal in an interview with Zaa news when the North America Branch of old students of the school paid a visit to the school to inspect uncompleted projects and present computers to the school. There have been a series of fire outbreaks in the school in the past.
”We are appealing to government to help us renovate these abandoned buildings, it is really affecting school’s enrolment, but if we are able to renovate and complete them, it will increase the intake of students”, he appealed.
Victor Ninsau is the President of the Branch, and he says the school currently has one dormitory block which is woefully inadequate for the students. He assured of the school of the old boy’s support but appealed to individuals, organizations and government to come to their aid.
”As old boys we are doing our best to ensure the school is in good sharp, but we will need the support from government and everyone who is interested in education to support us”,
