Authorities of the Moree Secondary/Technical School near Cape Coast, have made an urgent appeal to the central government and corporate bodies, to help address the inadequate infrastructure facing the institution.
According to the authorities, the school has not got enough classrooms, bungalows for teachers, assembly and dining halls, and vehicles to run day-to-day administration.
Mrs Rebecca Mensah, Senior House Mistress of the school, made the appeal when Brigadier Dr Nunoo-Mensah, Presidential Security Advisor on Human Development, handed over three classrooms and a girls’ dormitory, to the authorities at Moree.
Brig Dr Nunoo-Mensah completed the six classrooms of the first floor GETFUND project that had been abandoned for the past three years due to financial constraints.
He has also dug a bore hole at the cost of 18,000 Ghana Cedis for the school, to help solve its perennial water problem, and has constructed a-13-seater toilet and bath house facilities for the girls.
Mrs Mensah said before the intervention by Brig Dr Nunoo-Mensah, the girls were living in a private rented house, about two miles away from the campus.
According to her, the boys are still living in a rented house, and that had created a huge financial burden on the school.
The Senior House Mistress said there is no bungalow on the school campus, and the headmaster commutes from Cape Coast to the school, while the Assistant Headmaster also commutes from Agona Swedru every day.
She said the Computer School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) posted 780 students to the school during the 2014 academic, but only 100 could be admitted, due to inadequate accommodation.
The Senior House Mistress appealed to the Presidency, to come to the aid of the school.
Brig Dr Nunoo-Mensah said his action was in response to an appeal by the headmaster of the school during the handing-over of a classroom project he undertook for his alma mater, Winneba Senior High School early this year.
Brig Dr Nunoo-Mensah said, he spent over 60,000 Ghana Cedis on the completion of the GETFUND project at Moree, to ensure effective teaching and learning.
