According to them, tooting of horns, sound of engines and the daily movement of vehicles in and out of the school’s compound were negatively impacting on health and safety and teaching and learning.
Taking the Ghana News Agency around the school’s compound, Mr Robert Anyiteye, Chairman of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA), said all efforts at getting the mechanics out have proved futile hence the appeal to the Metropolitan Assembly.
Although the mechanics refused to comment, they were at work repairing several vehicles and shouting as if there was no school around.
The Ghana News Agency also sighted a refuse dump on the compound which was littered with human excreta and discarded household items and emitting an offensive odour.
Mr Ebenezar Cudjoe, Assemblyman for the area, told the Ghana News Agency that he has held series of meetings with the mechanics, which resulted in their relocation only for them to return.
He said the TMA has plans of fencing the school and turning the football pitch into a mini stadium adding that “when those plans materialize, no one can trespass.”
On the refuse dump, he said it would be cleared soon and that he would personally lead that operation.
