School authorities at the St, Theresa’s Roman Catholic Junior High School in the Nkwanta South Municipality of the Oti Region, have appealed to the authorities to urgently renovate their deplorable school infrastructure to avert any calamity.

The school buildings needed a facelift to secure the windows and doors to keep teaching and other learning materials safe, when the school is not in session.

Mr Vincent Antwi, Headteacher of the school, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that, the student population keeps reducing and believes it may be due to the dilapidated nature of the facility.

The GNA witnessed gaping cracks on the walls and floors of the classroom blocks during its visit.

Mr Antwi appealed to the government and non – governmental organisations (NGOs) to assist the school.

The Headteacher said several appeals were made by the school authorities to Mr Geoffrey Kini, Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkwanta South, and are still awaiting results.

He said the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number one and four, which is “Achieving inclusive and quality education for all and quality education re-affirms the belief that education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development.

Mr Nicholas Nayo, a teacher of the school told the GNA that they are worried about the situation and that the buildings are virtually collapsing and look more like a death trap.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
