A sod cutting ceremony to pave way for the construction of a six-unit classroom block for the Ampia-Ajumako Methodist School in the Central Region has been held.

The project is to be undertaken by a philanthropist, Siisi Quano in collaboration with the Methodist Church.

Speaking at the event, the General Manager of Methodist Basic Schools, Very Rev Naana Dan Nyame,  said the structure that serves as a school building for pupils of Ampia-Ajumako Methodist School in the Central Region had now become a death trap for the over 500 students and teachers.

The school block he said is in a very deplorable state as the pillars holding the entire building are worn-out and weak.

Residents of Ampia-Ajumako in the Central Region recently called on the government, to with immediate effect, address issues concerning the nature of classroom blocks in the community.

They fear the deplorable structures could collapse any time soon.

Few months ago, six pupils died in a school in the Central Region after their old school building collapsed on them. Due to this, government gave a directive for the dismantling of every old school structure for the construction of new ones.

“Because of this, the old 6-unit JSS classroom block of the Ampia-Ajumako Methodist School was brought down. Making matters worse, the JSS pupils were then moved to a different structure.  As part his social responsibility, a philanthropist called Siisi Quano has opted to construct a 6-unit classroom block for the school,” Very Rev Nyame said.
