The headmistress of the school, Mrs. Agnes Afonu bemoaned the unavailability of the necessary structures to house the students.

According to her, construction began on a new dormitory for the students began in 2012, but the project was abandoned and left to deteriorate

Mrs. Afonu speaking to Citi FM, stated: “Our dormitory facility is limited. The Ministry started the construction of dormitory, but the contractor ran away since 2012. The construction is still at the floor level. Parents always find their ways to keep their wards in school; we have hostels in Ho and so if it comes to the worse, parents can get those hostels for their wards.

The headmistress added that attempts were being made to get the relevant authorities involved in resolving the school’s challenges, and is pleading with government to come to their aid.
