Numasua M/A School turns death trap; Residents cry for help

The Numasua M/A primary and Junior High School (JHS) school in the Ahafo Ano North Municipality of the Ashanti Region is gradually sinking into the ground, taking away the pride of education from children in the community.

The school lacks almost everything including desks, textbooks, teachers and other teaching and learning materials.

The Numasua Primary and Junior High School until the coronavirus pandemic has a population of about 1000 pupils and has now become a death trap.

The school structure needs urgent rehabilitation to avoid any disaster as parts of the roof has been ripped off with some pieces hanging.

Also, cracks that have developed on the walls of the building are opening up further while wooden pillars supporting the building have become weak.

The school since its establishment has seen no rehabilitation.

Residents of Numasua speaking in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo said parents prevented their kids from attending to classroom due to state of the school before the closure of schools by government following the spread of COVID-19.

According to them, students in Numasua and other communities are discouraged and do not find it pleasant and exciting to return to the death trap as the school has become a habitat for goats, weeds, lizards, snakes and other dangerous reptiles.

“The situation is very disheartening and pathetic. Poor condition of the school is affecting teaching and learning in the school. We are calling on government, NGOs and stakeholders to come to our before reopening of Schools by government”.
