The headmistress of the Savelugu School for the Deaf, Mrs. Immaculate Atoriyah has appealed to the government and other stakeholders in education for support to complete the school’s boys dormitory.

“The facility which started four years ago is still not completed and management of the school is finding it difficult to house the male pupils, especially when the rains will be starting soon…,” she said.

Addressing an Open Day ceremony to mark 32nd Anniversary of the
school in Savelugu/ Nantom District of the Northern Region, Mrs. Atoriyah said, the school needed to urgently fence its compound to prevent people from encroaching on its land and also to protect the pupils against accidents.

The day was set aside by the School Management Committee and Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) to honour past students who had excelled in their fields of endeavour and also to demonstrate that
disability is not inability.

Under the theme: “Thirty-two years of Deaf Education, Success, Challenges and the Way Forward,” the occasion was also used by stakeholders to take stock of their stewardship for the past year and
draw up strategies for the future.

Mrs. Atoriyah said the school was located very close to the road, which poses danger to the pupils, saying, “there is the need for us to get support to be able to build a fence wall to prevent the pupils from playing close to the Tamale- Bolga Road, which is a very busy road.”

“Prevention, they say, is better than to cure.”

She said most of the teachers posted to the school did not turn up due to the many challenges there, including lack of decent accommodation.

She, therefore, congratulated teachers of the school for their zeal to help educate the children.
