The Nkororanza Shalom Special School for mentally handicapped is appealing to the government and the general public to support in the effective running of the school.
Headmaster of the school, Frank Owusu Amoako, made the appeal on Adom TV, saying the facility lacked basic amenities to accommodate the students comfortably.
“The school needs expansion because we have limited space. No teacher stays here after school hours aside the three house mistresses who ensure total caretaking of the many students.
It is not the best because sometimes you will be home and a call will come through to inform you some of the challenged students are roaming in town and causing havoc,” he explained.
He explained that the nature of the students demands that every staff stays on the compound to observe the status of the students but lack of finances and infrastructure has made that impossible.
Mr Amoako also revealed that the school appealed to the Nkoranza South District Assembly in the Bono Easy Region but the request was yet to be taken into consideration.
He is therefore appealing to the public and government to donate their quota in the upkeep of the children.
