Teachers at the Western Methodist Primary School in Asamankese have boycotted teaching and learning following the usage of the school premises as a public place of convenience by some unidentified persons.
The teachers of the school have threatened not to return to the classroom if the school’s authorities did not find a solution to the problem.
Speaking to Citi News
, the Head Teacher of the school Rosina Otchere said she suspected residents who live around the school premises.
“It has happened several times. You see them in polythene bags and tomato containers. The children have swept some but others are left so the teachers are saying they cannot sit in it to work,” she said.
Madam Otchere further opined, “They [teachers] are calling on appropriate authorities to be involved. The DCE has started putting up a building and we do not have any money to put up a fence wall around the school.”
The Circuit Supervisor of the school Alex Kumi Nyarko said he will report the issue to the educational directorate so something can be done about the situation.
“This school is right in the middle of the town and has a park which is being used by the public. It is very difficult to control the people who enter the school,” he said.
“The directorate and other officers will sit down to solve this problem."
Mr. Nyarko also explained, “The assembly took a decision to move all the containers however finding out how they prepare themselves to do this in the mornings is very difficult.”
