Wood World Missions, a charity wing of UK based Power Center Church on Wednesday donated some teaching and learning materials to dejected Tsremati Yoyim M/A School near Nkrukan in the Yilo Krobo Municipality of the Eastern Region of Ghana following Ultimate News report.
Tsremati Yoyim M/A Primary School has been neglected by government three years after the dilapidated school building collapsed.
Pupils have since been compelled to learn under five mango trees each serving as a classroom with KG and Class one (1) pupils occupying small pavilion church building of the Church of Pentecost.
The School had no writing boards, hence teachers’ tables and desks were used as boards while the un-plastered walls of the Church building used as writing board.
A deplorable room of the chief in the community serves as office where the few teaching and learning materials available are kept.
The condition of the school has demoralized parents, hence prefer using the children in farming activities which is affecting enrollment.
Following a report by Ultimate News last week about the plight of the school, Bishop Mrs. Mercy Wood of Wood World Mission, visited the school to donate six whiteboards, boxes of markers, whiteboard dusters, packets of pens and pencils, exercise books, erasers and biscuits to the school.
Speaking to Ghone News, Bishop Mrs Wood said, her attention was drawn to the news items on Tuesday hence decided to visit the school to assess their needs before she returns to the UK this week.
She said, Wood World Mission which has established tuition free Schools in Ghana and over five African Countries for the needy, will peruse the needs of the school for further assistants.
He however entreated the Yilo Krobo Municipal Assembly to be responsible.
The Headmaster of Tsremati Yoyim Primary School, Tamatey Benjamin Kwaku elated by the donation which he says will ameliorate the plight of the school, however asked for urgent government intervention to construct School building for the school.
Tsremati Yoyim M/A Primary School is located on the high mountains without road access to the community.
Teachers trek everyday on the rocks to teach under trees.
