Nsuhunu School appeals for trained teachers

School under treeMr Eric Ringo, Headmaster of Nsuhunu Roman Catholic Primary and Junior High School, has appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES) for trained teachers to help improve academic performance in the area.

He said the only school in the area with 225 pupils made up of 128 boys and 97 girls had no trained teacher which was affecting teaching and learning.

Mr Ringo made the appeal when a two-classroom nursery block with an office, store, and lavatory was inaugurated at Nsuhunu in the Tain District of the Brong-Ahafo Region.

The project was financed by ActionAid Ghana (Brong-Ahafo Region) at an estimated cost of GH¢52,100.

Mr Ringo said the school, established in 1963 with 12 pupils, had not been   renovated and lacked basic infrastructure as JHS students studied under sheds constructed by people in the community.

He explained that the JHS was established after the pupils refused to continue their education at nearby villages because of the distance.

Mr Ringo said the pupils were fed once a week at the basic level under the School Feeding Programme because of the non availability or delays in receiving the food items.

He appealed to the GES, Non Governmental Organisations and philanthropists for assistance to provide infrastructure, bungalows and textbooks to attract trained teachers to the school.

Ms Christina Amarchey, Programme Manager of ActionAid Ghana (Brong-Ahafo Region), pledged the commitment of the NGO to assist communities with educational infrastructure.

She said since the NGO begun its activities in the region in 2000, it had enhanced community participation in school governance through strengthening of Parent-Teacher Associations to engage with educational and school authorities and improving teaching and learning in schools.

Ms Amarchey said this year the NGO had provided infrastructure for 25 schools in the region with six of them in the Tain District and appealed to the GES to provide them with furniture.

ActionAid Ghana also inaugurated a gari processing centre comprising a processing machine, washing machine and other facilities constructed at GHc7,500  at Nasana in the Tain District to enhance income generating activities for women.
