The assistant head teacher of the Vume R/C Primary Mr. Akorli Raymond explained that, about two years ago, the Kindergarten classroom block begins to collapse.
According to him, they were told that, there was a pit latrine at where the school block was constructed.
Due to this, that part of the classroom block is now sinking gradually causing fear and panic among the teachers, students and communities folks.
Information available confirmed that, about seventy (70) kindergarten students were since relocated to the school’s technical and vocational department for teaching and learning to continue.
The Management of the school is therefore calling on all the powers that be, citizens and philanthropist to assist the school with 3-unit classroom block.
