A heavy downpour has destroyed GHATECO Preparatory School properties at Nsukwao, a suburb of Koforidua in the Eastern Region.

The rains, which started around 12 noon in all parts of Koforidua ended around 2 pm. The downpour has damaged most of the school properties such as textbooks, exercise books, mattresses, foodstuffs, and many vital properties.

Pupils of the school are living in a constant fear as the compound and surroundings of the school flood anytime it rains.

Most parent could not enter the school premises to pick up their kids due to the floods rendering the compound unmemorable.

Speaking to a teacher of the school in an interview told Brytfmonline.com that the uncontrollable situation is not new to them but has gotten out of hands now.

“Now we cannot teach because the rain has entered all the classrooms, we have lost all our textbooks and some school properties,” she said

Nsukwao, every year, faces the issue of flooding mostly attributed to shallow drains, bad sanitation habit and poor construction of bridges.

The teacher on behalf of her colleague urged the government authorities to construct good bridges to help rule out this cancer.

“We appeal to those in government to come to our aid because we are dealing with kids and anything can happen if immediate care is not taken,” she advocated.

Residents who live around the school are also pleading with school authorities to relocate the school if possible as parents are entrapped in danger when it rains.
