The Head Mistress of Shiayennoh Primary School in the Okaikwei Municipal Assembly Mrs. Ursula Tawiah said residents have turned the school into refuse dump and defecation ground.
Mrs. Tawiah explained to the Okaikwei North Municipal Assembly that, people living in the area are using the school compound as “wee” (cannabis) smoking base which is very dangerous to the children and also sets bad quintessence for the school children.
Mrs. Ursula Tawiah added: “the people dump their refuse and smoke marijuana in the school when students are out of the school. They only come to meet the school compound littered with rubbish and human excreta which makes the school environment appalling and a bad atmosphere for both teaching and learning.”
In an interview with a student he explained that: “when we come to school we sometimes see faeces in our classrooms and it is worst when we returned from long vacation.”
Kofi Boadi, resident in the area argued that: “the defecation and dumping of the refuse are mostly done by the students and not the neighbours.”
The headmistress pleaded with the Municipal Assembly and the police to deal with persons using the school for such unhygienic activities.
Head Mistress, Mrs. Tawiah, pleaded with the Assembly to assist the school with dustbins. She thanked ONMA for restoring the water problems in the school.
Again she called on the Okaikwei North Municipal Assembly to help the school empty the dustbins anytime it is full.
Mrs. Ursula Tawiah pleaded with residents to help the school restore sanity by reporting persons who are misusing the school premise to the appropriate authorities.
