The Assembly member for Dedo Electoral Area in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region, Elvis Dalley is pleading with the authorities of the assembly to help in completing the ongoing classroom block project for the Junior High School (JHS) of the school.
Mr. Dalley said Dedo D/A Basic School needed support for the construction which the community has started for some time now but unable to complete due to lack of funds.
Speaking to Voltaonlinegh, he indicated that the school has been facing a lot of challenges including inadequate teachers for the primary 3,4,5 and Kindergarten( KG) 1 resulting in pupils being packed in one classroom for teaching and learning to take place.
According to him, the KG pupils have been learning in a structure built with clay which could serve as a threat to the lives of these young ones.
He added that after witnessing these challenges, he contacted Assistant to Director of Education, South Tongu, Mark-Peter Dumatonu about the inadequacy of teachers and he (Mr. Dumatonu) assured him of sending some National Service Personnel to the school only during the 2019/2020 academic year.
The Assembly member said, he further informed the Circuit Supervisor, Sampson Ahadzi about the challenges but all his efforts yielded no results.
He is therefore pleading with the District Assembly to assist them in completing the school project and also work with the Ghana Education Service to provide teachers for the classes mentioned to enhance teaching and learning in the school.
