Authorities of the Wulensi Senior High School in the Nanumba South District have appealed to the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) to come to provide them with infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning.

Mr Gershon Aflakpui, assistant headmaster in charge of administration, told the Ghana News Agency in Wulensi on Thursday that students and tutors were under harsh conditions since every aspects of the school were in deplorable state and needed agent attention to befit its status to improve teaching and learning.

He said the school, with a population of 953 students, had no decent dormitory to accommodate students, no dining hall and staff accommodation and that teachers were not accepting postings there. Mr Aflakpui said a block of four classrooms had been converted into a dormitory for the girls while the boys were being accommodated in a dilapidated block with no windows and were thereby exposed to mosquitoes, rain and other insect bites.

He said all 30 members of teaching staff were non-resident on campus due to lack of accommodation.

Mr. Aflakpui said the school had never seen any renovation since its establishment in 1992 to provide secondary education to Wulensi and its surrounding communities.

He said the immediate needs of the school include at least a block of six classrooms, two dormitory blocks, each to house girls and boys, bungalows to accommodate teaching staff and one vehicle. Mr Aflakpui appealed to the GETFund board to visit the school to ascertain things for itself so as to enable it assist to improve on quality of education delivery there. When the GNA visited the school, conditions there did not befit that of a Senior High School. The Assistant Headmaster's office was a wooden structure while the students' dormitory had no doors and all its window louvers had removed.

Some of the male students were also busily constructing a bathroom from mud bricks since the bathroom on the block could only contain about 15 persons, which according to them was not enough. Some of the students who spoke to the GNA said they only enjoyed sleeping in their dormitory during the warm weather and had to suffer the cold and mosquito bite during the rainy season.
