SCHOOLS UNDER TREES: Duadaso No. 2 SDA JHS Calls For Help

The headmaster for the SDA Junior High School at Duadaso No 2, a surburb in the Jaman North district of the Bono Region, Richard Owusu Ansah has lamented about the poor nature of their school building which he said is affecting teaching and learning.


Richard Owusu Ansah disclosed that the school lacks a lot of facilities like classrooms, storeroom, headteacher’s office, toilet, urinal, staff Common room and others. This, he said is highly affecting the academic performance of the school.

He stressed that, since we are in the computer World, the government should help the school by constructing a computer laboratory to enable them learn ICT and gain basic knowledge of computing. He added that the poor nature of the school compel most of the class six pupils who graduate from the SDA primary school to not continue their JHS education with the school.

Some of the students also describe the structure as a death trap shed which they said is affecting their learning due to its bad nature. They lamented that they lack all the needed teaching and learning materials which facilitate good academic performance. They finally added that the government must also assist them in the provision of tables and chairs in this covid-19 era to help them distance themselves in the classroom during classes hours.
