Management of the New Juaben Senior High School in Koforidua is appealing to government and the GETFund to assist the school with teachers’ bungalows to help improve security and discipline on campus.
According to management of the school, the current 12 teachers resident on campus is woefully inadequate, making it difficult for them to discipline and monitor students with a huge population size.
The headmaster of the school, Mark Ofori Frimpong who disclosed this to Citi News on the sidelines of the commissioning of a 30-seater toilet facility for the girls’ dormitory by the old students association said, lack of teachers’ bungalows is affecting discipline.
“We need a number of teachers to come on campus and reside here so that they help to beef up discipline in the school. We need a bungalow and accommodation for teachers. We are really worried about the current situation because we have a teacher population of 124. And we can only boost of 12 teachers who are staying on campus. Management and these 12 teachers are supposed to supervise preps in the evening, cleaning of the campus in the morning, monitor students at the dormitories and so on. So we are calling on government and GETFund to immediately come to our aid,” he said.
