One of the best performing schools in the Northern Regional capital of Tamale, the Sakasaka Presbyterian primary school is faced with overcrowding.
With a population of 850 students, the school can only boast of three classroom blocks and a makeshift structure accommodating JHS one students.
All classrooms at the Kindergarten, lower and upper primary levels are congested.
The school authorities are compelled to halt admissions during the 2015/16 academic season.
The school’s’ headteacher, Anena Victor, in a Citi News interview called for government’s immediate intervention.
“I am appealing to government to assist us raise one of the blocks or even the front view of the school into a storey building to accommodate the entire school.”
He lamented that “Because of our performance, people from outside the metropolis from Kumbungu, Savelugu and Tamale the periphery, are coming here for admission. Our classrooms are choked and so we need expansion.”
Anena Victor commended some past students of the school for networking to uplift their Alma-Mata.
He promised to motivate the teachers to maintain the school’s performance.
