Akropong Sch for the Blind badly needs a bus- Headmistress

Authorities of the Akropong School for the Blind have howled over government’s failure to include them as benefactors of the 500 buses which were recently distributed to schools and educational institutions.

The headmistress of the school, Mahela Narh who was disappointed following the development since the school has been in dire need of one to aid in transporting students among others disclosed this when a delegation from the Men’s Ministry of the Living Streams Baptist Church made some donations to the school as part of the Ministry’s father’s Day celebration.

“In 2007 they shared vehicles and the school for the blind was left out, the first special school in the country which has the greater number was left out, just last year they gave Yutong buses, we were hoping and appealing.

Just this last week too, honestly I was down spirited. WA school for the blind hasn't got a bus at all and they were left out. Sometimes we are invited for national programmes, just this last week they were to start their BECE, our exam center is Okuapemman, we had to convey the students so it was some people who supported us with their car. So it’s a big challenge, we need a bus seriously,” Madam Narh said.

She also pointed out other challenges that school is facing, including the moratorium on employment in public institutions, which according to her, is posing a major challenge for the Akropong School for the Blind.
Her reason being that, the school cannot employ more hands even though the staff strength had reduced. Madam Narh also said the school's clinic has no government worker there and that the facility is being kept alive and running through the benevolence of the P.T.A of the school.
