Fencing of Atiavi Agbodekor RC Basic School, one of the oldest Basic school in the Municipality, established in the year 1918, has been abandoned to the detriment of the pupils of the school.
According to the headmaster, Mr. Numana Emmanuel Mawuli, the school was established by the Roman Catholic Mission.
Mr. Numana states that the PTA , the Chiefs, the old students and the people of Atiavi Agbodekor community celebrated the Centenary of the school in the year 2018, under the theme: Let us fence the school, because the need for fencing the school cannot be overemphasized. He said, leaving the school unfenced is detrimental and hazardous to the life of the pupils. This is due to the fact that most of the pupils leave the school premises without the consent of the school authorities and outsiders also easily intrude in and around the school and also interferes in the activities of the school
Mr. Numana further states that, during the centenary celebration, the member of parliament at the time, Hon. Richard Quashigah donated 500 bags of cement towards the construction of the fence, in addition, Dr. Senanu Djokoto , the Volta Regional Health Director also donated two (2) double axle of gravels. An amount of Ghc 2,500.00 cash was realized during the centenary celebration
Mr. Numana made this disclosure in an interview with Mr. Napoleon Awumee, the community reporter of Fafaa 100.3 Fm’s Duamenefa Foundation. Mr. Numana used the occasion to remind those who pledged since 2018, but could not redeem their pledges to do so as a matter of urgency. According to him, this has affected the progress on the School Fencing Project.
A bill of quantities in the sum of Ghc 108.000. is estimated to complete the project.
The school authorities through the headmaster and stakeholders are calling on the government, well meaning Ghanaians, Citizens, Son’s and daughters of Atiavi, benevolent organizations to come to the rescue in other to save the pupils from the hazards of the uncompleted fencing.
Watch out for further development……….
