Koluedor community members in the Ada West District have mobilized resource through fund raising to recondition a three-unit classroom block with an office complex that belongs to the Roman Catholic Primary School which roof got corroded few years after completion leaving the structure unsafe for use by the school’s authority in teaching.
Assemblyman for Koluedor Electoral Area, Francis Addibuer Baako and the Unity Committee Members led the people in a day church fund raising service at Koluedor Roman Catholic Primary School premises to accrue the amount needed to refurbish the roof.
The contribution was made by members of the community, old students and staff of Koluedor R/C Primary and Koluedor D/A Junior High School and various churches in the community. Other persons who supported the funding of the renovation are students and colleague lecturers of the assemblyman at All Nations University, Koforidua.
Mr, Francis who addressed the gathering of elders, youth of the community and invited guest on the purpose of the gathering said, the need for their subsidiary effort to revamp the building was to ensure that teaching and learning become efficient in the school regardless of the weather and the time adding that education has been the major factor in every successful life.
“We organized this fundraising to help restore the building because we place so much value on education to ensure that teaching and learning become efficient in this town,” he noted.
He bemoaned the past days of their time in school when a slight sign of rain during contact hours with students means teachers have to haut classes and allow students to head home due to the depleted school structures that cannot guarantee the safety of students during any heavy downpour.
“We don’t want our younger siblings to experience the distortion in classes we suffered from in many years ago when any sign of rain simply means school must close,” he said.
He added that, the unfortunate situation that leaves teachers to close the students affects the performance of students and put pressure on teachers to adjust time to cover the lost lessons.
Speaking after the program, Mr. Francis Addibuer Baako expressed his profound gratitude to the people for their understanding and the tremendous efforts to assist in diverse ways to ensure that the restructuring would be realized.
