“Some students told me of their needs especially, the girl child. These problems are all focusing on toilet facilities in the school. And I have seen that these complaints are genuine since for the girl child, when they are in their periods, they need the washrooms to change. So, I pledged to look into that and support and save the situation,” she said.

Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe-Ghansah also put smiles on the faces of the students by distributing street lights, and footballs, and also motivated the school children to have hope and keep working hard to achieve their aim.

She promised to frequent the schools to encourage the pupils to study and be focused to succeed in their final examinations and become better leaders in the future.

The MP, in all, visited 49 schools in the Constituency.

The Headmistress of Ocanseykope D/A Basic School, Mrs. Vivian Adjei elaborated on the numerous problems the school is facing and indicated that currently, the school is having a challenge with classrooms as all roofs are gone due to the storms.

“…our walls are fallen off; tables of teachers are broken and we are struggling to get the work done. This is a major challenge; we have to join two classes under one roof to be able to teach.”

According to her, the school does not have a Junior High Block although they have Junior High Students who are preparing for the final examinations.

The Headmistress revealed that the school administration had to find alternative means of providing classrooms for the JHS students and “…for now, we are currently using the primary block because we are preparing them for exams.”
